Refurbishing your Conservatory Roof.
It’s quite often the case that homeowners want to make some changes to an existing conservatory, or may have bought a house with an older conservatory already built and could be thinking that it all has to be removed and a new one built in its’ place – well, unless there are other structural problems, why not look into giving it a new roof?
Many companies in the UK are offering a conservatory roof replacement service, from beautiful ‘Lantern’ designs to simple poly-carbonate sheeting. There are lightweight, insulated tiled roofs which help eliminate rain noise and regulate the temperature inside the room and the work does not have to take very long to do.
- Increased ‘U’ value means less heat loss or incoming heat build up on sunny days
- frames are light & structurally strong – easy to fit
- you can select from a range of tile colours
- roofing systems come with 10 year guarantees
Just changing to a tiled conservatory roof instead of a glazed one can dramatically alter the appearance of your conservatory without having to go to the extra expense of starting from scratch!
In terms of tiling a conservatory roof, there are broadly 3 different options that can offer very different finishings to your extension.
Natural slate has a smooth low profile which makes the roof look slim and light. It weathers extremely well and is a classic look. However, natural slate can be quite expensive.
Concrete tiles are readily available in a number of colours. The large ones can look clunky on a small conservatory, so take stock of the size and think about how they suit the style of your room before buying. A concrete tile roof will also be heavy.
Synthetic tiles come in a number of different designs, from mock slate to ones that look as if they are made from wood. Many colours in the range give a wide choice and they are also comparatively light in weight.
