When your conservatory begins to let in excess rainwater, become a greenhouse, or just generally look a little worse for wear, it is time to think about a replacement roof. Upgrading your conservatory with a new roof will allow you to use it all year round, breathe life into a space that is no longer serving its purpose and add value to your home.
Choosing the right replacement conservatory roof is essential for getting the best possible value from your investment. With so many different options available, you should take the time to find a supplier that has the best reputation, is backed up with good customer feedback and complies with building regulations.
Polycarbonate sheets remain the most popular option for roofing a conservatory due to their low cost and ease of installation. However, polycarbonate is a poor insulator and lets in a lot of noise and heat loss. Glass is a better choice but is considerably more expensive. The latest developments in glass technology make it more thermally efficient and self-cleaning.
If you want your conservatory to feel more like a room in your house, then a tiled roof is the best option. It is available in a range of colours to match your existing home roof, and you can choose from full height glazed panels or smaller Velux style windows to flood your conservatory with natural light.
You can even incorporate speakers and a surround-sound cinematic experience to make your conservatory truly special. With a perfectly finished plastered ceiling, you can use the space for a variety of purposes and it will feel like a real part of your property.
Adding a solid conservatory roof can also make your home more energy efficient, meaning that you will save money on heating bills all year round. The extra insulation will prevent your conservatory from being too warm in the summer, and it will help to keep it cosy in the winter.
As with any major structural project, it is crucial that you get quotes from several suppliers to ensure that you are getting the best value for your money. You should also check the companies you are considering have membership of trade bodies that impose strict standards on their members, as this will give you peace of mind that your new conservatory roof will be installed to the highest standards.
A poorly-installed or damaged conservatory roof can be dangerous. Having it replaced by an experienced specialist will ensure that your conservatory is safe to use and will provide you with a valuable extension to your Cheltenham or Gloucester home.
