The insulated solid roof has become increasingly popular in the conservatory industry. It has the potential to turn your conservatory into a comfortable all year round room and is often chosen by those that want to save money on their energy bills. This option can also be fitted to any conservatory, no matter the style (Edwardian, Victorian, Lean-To etc).
A good quality solid tiled roof will keep your conservatory cooler in summer and warmer in winter which will significantly reduce your energy bills. It will also eliminate noise from the outside environment as well as reducing glare and making the space more usable throughout the day. This type of roof can be fitted to your existing conservatory without the need for new windows and doors which is a big bonus as these can be expensive.
Adding a solid roof to your conservatory can be carried out with minimal disruption, and this is especially true when you choose to have it fitted by a professional installer. It is worth bearing in mind though, that a solid roof will add to the overall weight of your conservatory so you need to make sure that your existing framework can handle this additional stress. Your professional should be able to provide you with details of how your conservatory can be strengthened or reinforced to accommodate this.
Another point to bear in mind when considering replacing your conservatory roof with a solid roof is that you will lose some natural light. This can be overcome by installing some roof windows which can allow in the light whilst still ensuring that you maintain an insulated and airtight space.
The insulation offered by a solid roof is considerably better than that of polycarbonate and glass, which means that the conservatory will be a more comfortable temperature all year round. This will help to save you money on your energy bills and can even contribute to a reduction in your carbon footprint.
If you are thinking of upgrading your existing conservatory with a solid roof, it is worth looking for an installer that can provide full local authority building control certification as part of the service. This will ensure that your installation is carried out to the highest standards and that your new roof is safe and secure.
