Will A Solid Roof Allow Me To Use My Conservatory In The Winter?

Replacing your conservatory roof with a solid tiled roof will transform it into a real room that can be used all year round. It can also increase the value of your home.

You can have a solid roof on your conservatory without planning permission, since the law changed in 2010. But why should you consider this option?

It’s a real extension to your home

If your conservatory or orangery has an old polycarbonate roof then chances are that in the winter it will feel uncomfortably cold and you’ll need to keep wearing layers of clothing. This is such a waste of an otherwise beautifully designed space and if you want to make it truly year-round useable, then adding a solid conservatory roof to your existing building is the way to do it.

The lightweight slates or tiles that form the solid roof are virtually identical to those found on the rest of your home and can be supplied in a range of authentic colored finishes before installing a conservatory. They also have excellent noise reducing qualities that will help to make your conservatory an area where you can escape from the outside world and relax in peace.

Our Livinroof solid roof and Ultraroof tiled roof products both allow you to insert triangular or rectangular glass panels into the structure at a point of your choice, allowing natural light to be focussed where it’s needed. This equates to a fantastic light filled space all year round.

It’s insulated

A conservatory is a great space to use all year round, but the problem with these spaces is they are a challenge to keep warm in winter. A solid roof is insulated and helps to retain heat throughout the winter.

This is an incredibly cost-effective way to convert your conservatory into a truly useable space that can be used all year round. It is also a great option for those who want to save on energy bills and reduce the amount they spend heating their conservatory.

It is important to choose a reputable company to fit your solid roof, and look out for LABC registered details certification which ensures that the design has been tested and meets building regulations. A good installer will also be able to recommend insulation options to help you keep your conservatory as warm as possible in the winter. This could include rugs or even polystyrene blocks laid underneath the floor.

It’s stylish

When a conservatory has a solid roof it looks like an integral part of your home. This is an important factor for many people when choosing a new roof. Anglian’s new Livinroof and Thermotec roof panels offer a stylish alternative to a traditional polycarbonate conservatory.

Whether it’s boiling hot in summer or unbearably cold in winter a solid conservatory roof will provide the right amount of thermal insulation to make your conservatory a useable space all year round.

Replacing your existing roof with a solid conservatory roof can be expensive but it’s worth the investment. Adding an extra room to your home, which can be used all year round, increases the value of your property and will save you money on energy bills.

It’s affordable

A solid conservatory roof is a much better option for those wanting to use their conservatory all year round, it’s cheaper than you might think and could be an added benefit if you ever choose to sell your home.

Unlike the traditional polycarbonate conservatory roof, solid roofs will prevent your living space from getting too hot in summer or unbearably cold in winter, allowing you to enjoy all the benefits of a conservatory all the time.

The Livinroof and Ultraroof can be customised to suit any design of conservatory, and both are available in a variety of colours to match your home. Glass panels can be inserted at preferred points within the roof, helping to focus natural light and creating an interior that looks stunning. These panels can also be shaped, so you can choose how the sunlight enters the room and focuses on your favourite furniture. This allows you to make your conservatory feel like a real room.
