Replacement Conservatory Roofs

Put a New Roof on your Old Conservatory and give it a whole new lease of life.

Pre 2014 a conservatory was exempt from Building Regulations if at least 50% of the walls and 75% of the roof were glazed. This led to a boom in cheaply constructed glass room extensions that were barely useable – being too far too hot in summer months and freezing cold during the winter. In 2014 the Building Regs. were altered to allow the replacement of the glass roof with something more substantial.

If you are not getting the best use from your existing glass extension you should definitely consider a replacement conservatory roof.

Old Style Conservatory Roof

Old style roofs

Plastic; Many lower cost conservatories were fitted with a basic plastic roof. These roofs were highly inefficient at preventing heat building up in the summer and retaining heat in the winter. It could also be extremely noisy when it rained.

Glass; Maybe your existing conservatory has a glass roof – but glass or plastic it will still be subject to the same problems; namely retain heat in winter and repel heat in summer if your conservatory is going to be comfortable and usable all year round.

One other regular problem with these older roofs was maintenance – simply keeping them clean was a challenge. The grime and dirt that attaches to your roof can significantly diminish the amount of light getting through as well as making the conservatory look shabby and unattractive.
