Protect Your Conservatory From Water Damage With A Solid Roof

It hasn’t just been bitterly cold this winter but we have also experienced numerous heavy downpours throughout Somerset and this may have left your old conservatory rather damp.

UltraRoof Gable Conservatory

Leaky conservatory roofs are a common problem in conservatories with ageing glass or polycarbonate roofs as wear and tear often eventually gets the better of them.

When any leaking starts to cause damage to furnishings and your conservatory interior, it’s time to do something about it. No, we don’t mean knocking the whole structure down, just exchanging the existing roof for a solid roof.

Use a solid roof for weather sealing

You could attempt to suppress the leaking with a repair job, but it is unlikely to bring a permanent end to the issue, whereas a solid roof installation will.

So long as the structure has deep enough foundations to handle the weight, a solid roof can be integrated into the design and will not only keep the rain out, but also enhance internal comfort and give it a new life.


The Ultraroof is a very popular choice of replacement conservatory roof at Permaframe as it provides all-year round protection from the weather and includes large rectangular glazed panels to help bring natural light inside.

Compatible with new or existing Gable, Lean-To, Edwardian or Victorian Conservatories and various orangery designs, it is comprised of slates in one of three authentic colours – carbon grey, terra brick (red), and harvest brown.

We will advise you though that a solid roof requires building regulations approval prior to being implemented as it is considered a “change of use” and if the conservatory was built under planning a full new planning application will also be needed.

As the Ultraroof is Local Authority Building Control approved, there is a strong likelihood that Building Regulations approval will be granted.

Permaframe will take care of all of that on your behalf anyway, so you can just look ahead to dry conservatory living.
