Solid conservatory roofs are a great way to enhance the thermal performance of your home and help you to save money on energy bills. They come in a wide range of sizes, pitches and shapes to suit any property and can be glazed with different types of glass to suit your requirements.
They are also 15 times more thermally efficient than traditional glass or polycarbonate roofs and have a huge energy saving potential. These roofs can significantly reduce the amount of cold air entering your home, which means you’ll be able to save money on your heating bill and enjoy your conservatory all year round.
Choosing the right material for your new conservatory roof can make all the difference to its performance and energy efficiency. You can choose between a wide range of materials, including self-cleaning glass and polycarbonate, which have different properties that can improve your energy consumption.
The type of tiling you use for your new roof can also have an impact on its aesthetics, so it’s worth considering the look you want to achieve. You may prefer to go for slate tiles if this is an important feature in your design, as they offer a unique visual effect. However, it is worth remembering that they can be prone to damage and need frequent repair and maintenance.
Slate tiling is not cheap but can add to the ‘wow factor’ of your new conservatory and can help to accentuate the design and style of your home overall. Alternatively, you can also opt for a more budget-friendly alternative – synthetic ‘slate’ tiles are available at a considerable discount to genuine tiling.
Your installer will be able to give you advice about the best colour, texture and type of tiling for your new conservatory roof. There are a huge variety of options to choose from, from classic whites to natural stone or even pastel shades.
You can also choose from a range of tiling styles, including square and round, as well as curved and textured designs. You can even choose a tiling pattern that matches the tiles on your home’s roof.
Tiled conservatory roofs are a popular option for many people, as they can be installed very quickly and are ideal for most existing window frames. This makes them an excellent choice for those who have a busy schedule and require the installation to be completed in a short space of time.
When a replacement solid roof is fitted to a conservatory it’s likely to have a higher price tag than a glazed one, but the savings you’ll make in your energy bills could more than cover this extra cost. They’re also a lot more durable and long-lasting than traditional glazed conservatory roofs.
The price of installing a solid conservatory roof depends on the size and structure of your property. Prices start at PS16,000 and can increase depending on the materials you choose, so it’s a good idea to get a quote from your local expert.
