Getting a new solid conservatory roof replacement can transform your home extension into a comfortable and welcoming living space that adds value to your property. But it’s important to get the right system and to choose the right conservatory roofing contractor.
A solid roof doesn’t just give your conservatory a more authentic look – it also adds insulation, which can reduce your energy bills and make the room warmer in the summer. There are now several lightweight solid roof systems, and you can find a variety of materials, from synthetic slate to concrete tile.
Some lightweight solid conservatory roofs are assembled in production plants and then shipped to your house as a complete, intact unit, saving you time on site. Some of the most popular lightweight options include Tapco Slate, Britmet EcoPan Plus and Envirotile – all of which use a range of materials including polypropylene, crushed limestone and rubber to produce a lighter roof that looks like natural slate.
Another lightweight option is the Livinroof and Ultraroof – both are hybrid systems that incorporate shaped glass panels into their framework, making them a great choice for those who want to increase the amount of daylight in their room, while still keeping the’real-room’ feel. They’re also insulated and can feature a ceiling pelmet that allows for a range of lighting and heating options to be installed, such as spotlights.
A lightweight solid roof can be a cost-effective way to replace your conservatory and bring it up to standard, but you need to ensure that the installer is qualified and has sufficient experience in installing them. They can advise you on what types of solid roofs are best for your needs and whether they meet building regulations or not.
They also need to understand your requirements and any local planning restrictions. If you’re replacing a roof that doesn’t currently comply with building regulation requirements, it is likely that you’ll need to apply for a Building Regulations Certificate.
The price of a replacement conservatory roof can vary widely depending on the company that you choose to install it and the type of roof. It can also depend on the size and height of your roof, the type of tiles used and the overall quality of the installation.
When you’re looking for a company to install your new roof, it’s worth taking the time to visit their showroom to see what they can do. It’s a great way to see how the finished product will look and to learn about the conservatory roofing process and its importance in keeping your space warm, dry and secure.
It’s also a good idea to ask to see previous projects that they have completed, as this will give you an idea of how the work is done and if they are trustworthy.
Solid roofs are a big job and can take a few days to install, so it’s important to choose a contractor that’s trained to do the work safely. Then, you’ll be able to enjoy your new conservatory roof for years to come.
