A solid conservatory roof is a great way to transform your conservatory into a room you can use all year round. It can also add value to your home if you ever decide to sell and can reduce your heating bills by keeping the space warmer in winter.
A new roof will require the removal of your old polycarbonate or glass conservatory roof and a replacement with a breathable membrane underneath a solid sheet of insulated timber. Your roofing company will advise you on the best insulation for your specific property and will install a watertight underlay. This is essential as without this your new roof could become leaky and cause irreparable damage to your existing structure.
You will also need to insulate the interior of your conservatory which is usually done by fastening solid insulating boards on top of the roof frame and rafters. Your roofing company will be able to offer various systems for this including Leka which is quick and easy to install and offers high energy efficiency.
The reason you choose a solid conservatory roof may vary depending on how you use the space, but noise reduction and regulating temperature are two benefits that many homeowners will appreciate. You can even have roof windows installed into your solid roof to bring more daylight into the room and improve the overall look of your conservatory.
