A conservatory tiled roof gives you an amazing living space that’s both warm in winter and cool in summer. It can also be customised with a choice of energy efficient glazed panels to let in lots of natural light. This makes it a great way to increase the use of your conservatory all year round and help you save money on your energy bills too.
A solid roof for your conservatory can change it from a sun room to a room that’s used all year round and adds real value to your home. However, it’s important to know whether you need planning permission or not before making any changes.
If your existing conservatory has a polycarbonate or glass roof, a solid roof replacement will make it much warmer and more energy efficient. In fact, it can even increase the value of your property! Unlike glass or polycarbonate, solid conservatory roofs have better thermal performance and are quieter when it rains. They are also easier to maintain as the dirt doesn’t show as easily.
There are many different styles of tiled conservatory roof, so it’s worth thinking about the style that best fits your property. The main styles are Victorian, Double-Hip and Gable conservatories. But there are variations of these such as Lean-To and Edwardian.
Our most popular solid conservatory roof is the Ultraroof from Ultraframe, which can be fitted to any uPVC or hardwood frame. The system is precision engineered and pre-manufactured so that it’s easier to install and causes less disruption to your home life. Plus, it has a superb u-value of 0.14W/m2K to help you keep your energy bills down.
The insulated composite external panels and slab insulation of the new roof are both designed to help your conservatory to retain heat more successfully, so you can cut your energy bills and stay comfortable all year round. A new tiled roof for your conservatory will also help to reduce condensation and humidity levels.
Many older conservatories have a polycarbonate or glass roof, which may be showing signs of ageing and need replacing. Replacing this with a modern lightweight tiled roof can be done without the need for costly structural upgrades, and will give your conservatory a whole new look that’s both stylish and practical.
The tiles can be sourced to match your existing conservatory sides, so it looks like the sun room is part of your home and not just an extension. You can also incorporate a choice of Velux roof windows, which can boost light and ventilation within your conservatory. Soffit lighting can also be added to further improve the safety and aesthetic of your conservatory. But it’s important to note that not all companies can offer this option as some will need to carry out additional plumbing and electrical work to ensure the lights are fully functional. For this reason, we recommend choosing a company that offers this service and can guarantee the quality of their work.
