Investing in a Solid Conservatory Roof
Investing in a solid conservatory roof will allow you to transform your conservatory into an extension that can be used all year round. The increased thermal efficiency will help to reduce your energy bills and will make the space much more cosy. It will also add value to your property as prospective buyers will see that it is a well-used area of the home.
You can choose between a number of different roofing systems when you opt for a solid conservatory roof. These include concrete tiles, slate and composite tiles. You can even choose from a range of colours to ensure that the new roof matches the existing tiles on your house. Depending on the size of your conservatory you may need to consider having it reinforced to ensure that it can support the weight of a solid replacement roof.
Some installers use a ‘wrap-over’ type of system that wraps the existing conservatory structure with a new roof. This can be problematic and in some cases may lead to the roof collapsing. It is best to stick with an approved installer that can provide structural calculations for the new roof and ensure that the existing conservatory structure can handle the additional weight.
Many installers have worked with local council building control departments to come up with designs for the new replacement roofs that are approved. Look for LABC Registered Detail certification when choosing a company to fit your new conservatory roof. solid conservatory roof
