Adding a solid conservatory roof replacement to your home is an affordable and effective way to increase the value of your property, whilst enhancing its appearance. It can also save you money in the long run by reducing energy costs and regulating temperatures more effectively.
A solid roof is much more versatile than a glass or polycarbonate one and will help you make the most of your extra space, regardless of whether it’s used for relaxing, entertaining or just getting out of the cold weather. It will also enhance the overall ‘room-like’ appeal of your conservatory and help it to feel more like a genuine extension of your home.
It will be less expensive to replace a conservatory roof with a solid roof than a traditional glass or polycarbonate one. This is because the installer will be able to reuse most of the existing structure and therefore reduce the cost of labour and materials.
Solid roofs are more insulated than older conservatory roofs, making them better at controlling temperature and preventing heat loss in winter. They can be 15 times more thermally efficient than polycarbonate or clear glass, saving you money on heating your home and ensuring your room is a comfortable place to relax all year round.
They are also more stylish than classic glass roofs and are available in a range of colours and styles that coordinate well with most homes. You can even opt for synthetic’slate’ tiles to add a real aesthetic impact to your new roof.
You can also have a roof with a number of windows and skylights, allowing for plenty of natural light to be added to your conservatory, as well as creating a more open feeling for the room. If you want to customise your roof with a number of features and elements, a solid roof is the best option, as it will be cheaper than a classic glass or polycarbonate one.
Unlike a cladover, a solid roof is not susceptible to the same issues as a traditional glass or polycarbonate one and you won’t need to worry about leaks or condensation. It will also stand the test of time.
The installation of a solid roof is usually fast and easy, and the underlying structure can be removed without any major disruption to your home or garden. This means that it can often be a complete and straightforward project that requires no planning permission.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind before you go ahead with this work. First of all, you will need to find a reputable and experienced solid roof replacement company that can meet your requirements for building regulations.
This should include a professional survey to make sure your existing structure can support the weight of a solid roof. You can then get quotes from three or four local and national conservatory installers to compare prices.
It’s important to get a quote that includes all the work, not just a fixed price for the roof itself. This will ensure that any unexpected bills are covered and you don’t end up with a bill for something that has already been done.
