Notice A Chill? Upgrade Your Conservatory With A Solid Roof


Traditional conservatories are notorious for offering poor thermal efficiency, preventing their owners from using them for large parts of the year. Nobody wants to or enjoys sitting in a conservatory that is freezing cold in winter and boiling hot in summer.

But you should not just accept that that is how they are and leave them sitting empty, not when you could just invest in a solid roof and make the space livable for 365 days of the year.

What is a solid roof?

A complete replacement of your existing conservatory isn’t logical and would prove extremely costly. So, the next best option is to fit a solid roof which is a replacement roof covering supplied either in lightweight tiles or lightweight slates that will keep the conservatory properly heated or cooled.

Benefits of a solid roof

We have already outlined one major benefit of a solid roof by telling you that it will insulate your conservatory all-year round, but there are other benefits that need to be mentioned:

      1.    Quick installation

Because a solid roof can be prefabricated it makes the installation process all the easier, meaning it could be fitted in just a matter of hours.

     2.    Authentic appearance

The lightweight tiles and lightweight slates have been specifically designed so that they will closely resemble any existing tiles. This makes it less obvious that the old roof has been replaced for a modern alternative.

    3.    Roof windows

We’re always upfront with our customers and advise them that some natural sunlight will be lost when installing a solid roof. If this is a concern then you can have roof windows added to the solid roof design which will help sunshine into the space.

   4.    Versatile styling

Conservatories come in various styles – Edwardian, Victorian, Lean-To etc. The beauty of a solid roof is that it can be crafted to suit any of these styles and even for the most sophisticated bespoke conservatory designs.

A solid roof is your saviour

So, there you have it. All is most definitely not lost if you thought that your conservatory was best destined for the scrapheap.
