The Benefits of Replacing Your Conservatory Roof With a Solid Roof
Upgrading your conservatory roof with a solid tiled roof will transform the room into a space that can be used all year round and will add value to your home. A new roof will improve your energy efficiency, reduce noise and glare from sunlight as well as keeping the room at a more comfortable temperature. This will enable you to use your conservatory for many different purposes including work, eating and relaxing.
The cost of a new roof for a conservatory will vary depending on the size and specification of the roofing system that you choose. The amount of insulation required and the optional extras such as spotlights or roof windows will also affect the price of the replacement roof. You may also need to carry out a structural survey or have the existing structure strengthened in order to support the weight of the new roof, which will add to the overall cost.
When choosing a company to install your new solid conservatory roof, check that they will be able to give you advice on whether the current framework can carry the weight of the solid roof or not. It is essential that any existing conservatory is inspected for signs of distress before work starts as adding a solid roof to an existing structure that was designed to have glass or polycarbonate panels installed can result in the conservatory collapsing.
A solid roof can be made of a range of materials, with the most popular options being uPVC or aluminium. The majority of these systems are supplied with a high performance thermal insulation to help with heat retention, which is important for the winter months. They are also designed to be aesthetically pleasing with the option of a flat or pitched roof and are available in various colours.
Other benefits of replacing your existing conservatory roof with a solid roof include;
* A more traditional look for the room, making it feel more like an extension of your house.
* Energy saving, as the solid roof will insulate your conservatory better than a polycarbonate one, helping you save on heating costs.
* Noise reduction, as the solid roof will help to keep out the noise from the rain or any other weather conditions.
* Natural light, as the solid roof will allow in three times more natural light than a regular conservatory roof with glazed panels.
The main reasons for people choosing to replace their conservatory roof with a solid roof are;
Increased home comfort and living space, as the new roof will provide insulation against heat loss.
Energy savings – as the new roof will insulate your conservatory well, you should save money on heating and cooling costs.
Reduction in glare, which is particularly helpful when the room is used for work.
* Increased ventilation – as the roof will have no gaps or cracks, air can circulate freely throughout the room.
