A conservatory can be a beautiful addition to a property, adding both value and usable space. However, like any room in a house, it can start to deteriorate as the years pass by.
Often, this is because of the roof. As it is the most exposed component, it is likely to show the first signs of wear and tear. Thankfully, it is not always necessary to rebuild a conservatory from scratch; rather, a conservatory roof replacement can restore the room and turn it into an area that can be enjoyed year round.
Upgrading to a new roof can be relatively inexpensive, and the transformation it brings can be incredible. ‘Simply changing the roof can transform your existing conservatory into a space you can use all year round,’ says Stuart Walker, head of living spaces at Tradelink. ‘It can also improve the quality of light in the room and make it much more comfortable and practical.’
Many older conservatories were built using glass or polycarbonate, meaning they are not very well insulated. This can lead to the room becoming too hot in summer and cold in winter, and it can also cause problems with condensation and dampness. Replacing the roof with something that is better insulated will significantly reduce the amount of heat lost, cut down on glare and UV light, and save you money on your energy bills.
There are a number of different roofing options available for conservatories, and the best option for your home will depend on its size and shape. For example, a gable or hipped conservatory will be able to support a tiled roof, but an Edwardian or Lean-To conservatory will need a more sturdy and stable plastic one. Whether you choose a slate or tiled roof, it is possible to match the colour to your existing property, creating a seamless look that will blend in beautifully with your existing conservatory and your home.
Most of the top roof manufacturers, including Eco Roofing SE, provide a range of colours and styles that will suit any property. The choice is almost endless and you can even opt to have a roof with features such as recessed lights or skylights. Depending on the type of roof that you have installed, it is likely that a Building Regulations application will need to be made before the work can begin. Your Ultra Installer will be able to help with this and liaise with your local building control department to ensure that the work meets all requirements.
A new tiled conservatory roof can significantly improve the appearance of your existing conservatory and increase its resale value. It can also be fitted in a fraction of the time it takes to build a conservatory from scratch and can be finished quickly after installation, so that you can enjoy your new room as soon as possible.
