If your conservatory is starting to feel too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter or just looks old and dingy, it might be time for a roof replacement. Replacing your existing glazed conservatory roof with something more substantial can make the space much easier to use all year round and improve its energy efficiency. There are a few options available for your new roof, including polycarbonate, glass, and tiles. The type you choose will depend on your budget and the look you want for your conservatory.
A popular choice is polycarbonate, as it is both cheaper than a glass or tiled roof and still offers good insulation. There are also solar inserts that can be fitted to your polycarbonate roof to boost its insulating properties even further.
A glass conservatory roof has a pleasing aesthetic and allows you to gaze up at the clouds or stars from the comfort of your home. There are now glass roofs that offer a range of smart features such as self-cleaning and low emissivity that can help you to save on energy bills.
The addition of a tiled roof will transform your conservatory into a room that is more like any other room in your house. Not only is it aesthetically appealing, but it will provide great sound insulation from outside noises so that you can work or relax in peace.
Choosing the right tiles for your new roof is crucial as they will be a big part of how your conservatory looks, so it’s important to pick ones that suit your style and match your existing windows and doors. There are a range of colours, styles and finishes available, so you should have no problem finding the perfect tiles for your conservatory.
You do not usually need planning permission to replace your conservatory roof with a solid tiled one, but you will need to check with your local council as there may be restrictions on this for listed buildings or those in protected areas. If you do decide to go ahead with a solid roof, it is important to only use a certified and accredited installer. This will ensure that the installation is carried out to industry standards and you can be confident your new conservatory roof will perform as well as it should.
