A solid conservatory roof is a fantastic way to make your existing conservatory feel like an integral part of the house, as opposed to being a separate extension. It will also improve the appearance of your property and add to its value. This is because you won’t have to worry about the draughts and temperature fluctuations that can occur with a glazed or polycarbonate conservatory roof.
You may also find that your energy bills are reduced and the room is a more pleasant place to be all year round, with the insulation stopping cold in winter and heat escaping in summer. It will be a room you can use for work, play or simply relaxing and unwinding.
If you opt for a replacement tiled conservatory roof then it is worth knowing that you do not need planning permission. This is because the rules have changed since 2010 and it is now classed as a ‘permitted development’. However, it is still important to check with your local council to ensure you conform to all other requirements that they may have.
The tiles are available in a variety of colours and styles so you can choose to match your existing home or even enhance the look. You can also add Velux style roof windows to your new tiled conservatory roof which is great for letting natural light flood in whilst helping prevent furniture fade, overheating and heat loss.
A tiled conservatory roof is also extremely tough and independent, meaning that it will last a lot longer than a glazed or polycarbonate roof. You can also add a solaroof glass panel to your new conservatory roof to help stop excessive sunlight entering and causing damage, as well as reflect it back into the room keeping it cooler in summer.
For a more luxurious finish to your new conservatory, ask your installer about their options for slate tiling. These are synthetic tiles that are made from polymers formed to resemble slate, clay or shingle and are available in a range of different shades to match your existing home. You can also opt for a modern replica slate which offers a more subtle appearance but is also much cheaper than real slate.
All of our warm conservatory roofs are designed to enhance the aesthetics of your home. The textured tile finishes of our Solicon and Livinroof products are able to blend seamlessly with the rest of your property, elevating your conservatory into an integrated and visually appealing addition that will become an important feature of your home rather than a stand-alone extension.
Our Ultraroof product can be glazed or fitted with Velux windows and the internal ceiling is a plastered vaulted design that will give your conservatory that’real room’ feel. It is also highly insulated with the addition of a pelmet to help further reduce your energy bills.
