Solid roofs were partly developed to cure this issue, namely to make conservatories thermally efficient all-year round so that their owners can expect a comfortable setting whether external temperatures are high or low.
They’re a replacement roof covering for old conservatories, though they can also be assimilated into new-build conservatories if you want guarantee thermal performance from the very beginning. Consisting of lightweight tiles or lightweight slates, a solid roof can be crafted to suit any conservatory type.
Aside from the impressive thermal qualities of a solid roof, it offers a number of other big selling-points:
One of the biggest downsides of real tiles / slates is that they have a tendency to crack and come apart over time.
The tiles / slates used to manufacture a solid roof can resist the ageing process and look amazingly like genuine tiles / slates. It helps that they are finished in the kind of colours you would most commonly associate with your typical house / conservatory roof tiles / slates.
A little bit of natural light will be lost once a solid roof has been fitted to your conservatory, but it can be restored with the addition of a roof window or two.
These glazed sections will sit within the roof covering and give the sun a passage right into the structure. The perimeter ceiling can also house spotlights and speakers if you plan on using a conservatory as a place for entertaining guests at night.
You certainly won’t be waiting long to have a solid roof fitted to your existing extension as solid roof installations can generally be made watertight in just a few hours and finalised in just a few days.
The quickness of the installation is down to the fact that much of the hard work is done off-site as solid roofs are pre-fabricated before being transported to the relevant location in readiness for fitting.
