A conservatory is a lovely extension of your home. It is the ideal place to relax in the summertime or even read a book. But, with many conservatories having glass or polycarbonate roofs they suffer from issues like excessive heat and glare that make it uncomfortable to use. So, if you’re looking to transform your conservatory into a warm and inviting space then a solid conservatory roof could be the perfect solution for you.
A solid conservatory roof has a number of benefits that will ensure your new conservatory is a comfortable and enjoyable space all year round. The extra insulation of a solid roof makes the space feel warmer in winter and cooler in summer and it also helps to reduce noise from outside.
The added insulation of a solid roof is not only good for the environment but it can save you money on heating bills too. This is because heat escapes through most conservatory roofs and a solid replacement roof will stop this from happening.
Both the Livinroof and Ultraroof solid conservatory roofs use advanced thermal technology to help keep your room feeling cosy in winter and cool in summer. Both of these roofs have a low U-Value which means that they will prevent heat from escaping your room and they are both designed to work with existing windows, doors and frames meaning that they can be fitted to a variety of conservatories.
When choosing a solid conservatory roof you should always look for an installer who is FENSA or CERTASS approved to ensure that they are working to the highest professional standards. This will give you peace of mind that your installation is being carried out correctly and that the finished product will be safe and secure.
Your installer will be able to advise you on what is needed to achieve a building regulations compliant installation for your new replacement conservatory roof. They will also be able to liaise with your local authority or other relevant body to get your solid conservatory roof approved.
A quality national installer should have worked with building control departments to come up with designs for a solid roof that comply with the required regulations. These designs will be LABC Registered Details and will have been independently tested for quality. You can find out more about the requirements for a solid conservatory roof by visiting the Planning Portal Website.
Another important thing to remember is that your existing conservatory may need to be strengthened to support the weight of a solid roof. This will add to the overall cost of the project but it is necessary to ensure that your replacement roof can be safely installed.
