Is your conservatory an unused, unloved space? Is it freezing in winter yet stuffy in summer? Has condensation, moss, and mould taken hold of your roof? If so, it’s probably time to consider replacing your conservatory roof. If you want to know the options available and what conservatory roof is best, then read on…
Do I need to change my conservatory roof?
Left ignored, your roof will continue to make your conservatory an unwelcoming space. Getting your conservatory roof replaced will undoubtedly save you money on your heating bills. Equally importantly, it will also give you a room you can enjoy morning, noon and night, all year round!
What types of conservatory roofs are available for your Devon home?
Typically, there are three popular types of roofing available, polycarbonate, glass, and tiled. Each roof offers a protective barrier against the elements and will keep your conservatory dry. However, there are differences between each type, which should be considered when making your final choice.
Polycarbonate conservatory roofs an affordable option
Polycarbonate conservatory roofs are an affordable option if you are on a tight budget. They allow lots of natural light into your conservatory. On average, polycarbonate roofs have a life span of 15 years. However, polycarbonate roofs, aren’t as thermally efficient as other alternatives. As a result, your room can become uncomfortable in extremes of weather. Also, polycarbonate roofs are not as efficient at shielding your room from outside noise.
Glass conservatory roofs really let the light shine through
A glass conservatory roof will provide your conservatory with arguably the best access to light, giving your room a bright and airy feel. Advances in technology mean glass roofs are also far more climate and energy-efficient than their polycarbonate counterparts. Perfect for keeping your conservatory comfortable through all seasons! Glass roofs can be beautifully designed to meet your individual specifications. Having a glass roof fitted to your existing conservatory will really bring your old conservatory back to its former glory!
Tiled roofs an eye-catching transformation for any conservatory
Tiled conservatory roofs offer excellent thermal performance, superb noise reduction (no more noisy pounding rain) and the flexibility to really personalise your room. Choose to have additional skylights, different colour tiles, and a customisable roof pitch. The plastered ceiling really gives your conservatory the feeling of an extension. With a tiled roof, you can add further character, with spotlights, built-in speakers or maybe even a statement chandelier. With a tiled replacement conservatory roof, you can really fall in love with your conservatory all over again!
Will my replacement conservatory roof need planning permission?
In most cases, if you just want to replace your existing conservatory roof, planning permission is not needed. However, dependent upon your local authority, Building Regulations may be needed. You can get any information you need by your local planning authority (LPA).
