Conservatories offer us a space to sit back, relax and enjoy the outdoors, but as time goes by they can start to lose their appeal. If you’re not able to use your conservatory as much as you’d like, or you find that it gets too hot during the summer and cold during the winter then a new roof may be just what you need.
Many older conservatories are fitted with classic polycarbonate or glass roofing systems, and these can begin to show signs of ageing such as the roof sagging or becoming murky due to the build up of condensation. When this happens, it’s important to look into replacing the roof as soon as possible – failing to do so could lead to further problems such as leaking or overheating.
One way to do this is to install a replacement tiled roof onto your existing conservatory. Tiled roofs are an excellent choice as they are durable, hardwearing and aesthetically pleasing. They are also able to help to reduce your energy bills and make your home more thermally efficient.
Tiled roofs can be made from a number of materials including synthetic slate and clay tiles, as well as zinc coated steel shingles that are formed to look like traditional tiles. These are available in a variety of colours and styles so you’ll be able to find the right finish for your home. These lightweight roofs can be fitted over your existing conservatory without the need for any additional structure, meaning you won’t have to pay as much to replace your old conservatory with a new one.
A replacement solid conservatory roof will transform your unused sun room into a beautiful living space, enabling you to fully use the area and make it feel more like a part of your home. You can choose from the Livinroof or Ultraroof lightweight tiled roof systems, both of which can be integrated with glazed panels or Velux windows. Both of these roofs can be fitted with a plastered vaulted ceiling to create that ‘real room’ feel.
These new replacement solid conservatory roofs will allow you to enjoy your space regardless of the season, as they will be able to keep your space warmer than glass or polycarbonate roofing systems. These roofs will also be able to stop the heat from your central heating escaping, resulting in lower energy bills.
In addition to this, your newly replaced conservatory will be more environmentally friendly, as it will prevent heat from escaping to the outside world. You will therefore be able to make your home more eco-friendly, which is an advantage if you plan on selling your property in the future.
If you’re looking for a replacement conservatory roof that will help to reduce your carbon footprint and save money at the same time, then consider a lightweight tiled ‘warm roof’ system from Eurocell. This can be fitted over your existing roof and consists of a lightweight aluminium frame overlaid with tiles and a plastered interior ceiling and can include skylights or Velux windows for natural light. These roofs can be insulated to achieve a u-value of 0.15 and are compatible with most styles of conservatory. lightweight conservatory roof replacement
