Solid conservatory roof are designed to enhance your home. They are available in a range of colours and styles which means you can integrate them into your existing structure to create an extension that looks like it has always been there. A solid conservatory roof is also energy efficient which will cut your heating bills. It will also reduce the environmental noise from outside your property and improve the usability of your conservatory all year round, making it a more enjoyable space to be in. Adding a solid roof will also increase the value of your property and could speed up the process of selling your house.
The most important reason to choose a solid conservatory roof is that it will make your conservatory a much more comfortable room all year round. The insulation in a solid conservatory roof will prevent heat from escaping which will keep it warmer in winter and cooler in summer. It will also help to dampen external noise and will stop the uncomfortable glare that can occur with polycarbonate or glass conservatory roofs.
A solid conservatory roof will increase the light in your conservatory and can be fitted with skylights to further maximise this. The increased light will create a brighter room that is ideal for relaxing and entertaining guests. You can also add lighting to your solid conservatory roof to further accentuate the design of your room and to create a unique feature in your home.
You will not need planning permission if you want to install a solid roof in your conservatory but it is essential that any structural changes are done correctly. Your local building control department will need to inspect your new structure and confirm that it is safe, suitable for habitable use and that the energy regulations are adhered to (as measured by a SAP test).
To avoid any disappointment or additional costs, we recommend choosing an installer who is approved by FENSA or CERTASS and has experience of installing solid conservatory roofs. This will ensure that your installation is carried out to the highest professional standards.
Solid roofs are also very lightweight which makes them easier to transport and install, reducing the overall cost of the project. They are also much safer to walk on than traditional glass or polycarbonate conservatory roofs, a major benefit if you have young children or pets.
Depending on the main use of your conservatory, you might wish to have glazed panels included in your solid roof, in order to allow sunlight where needed. The Livinroof system allows a number of different shaped glazed panels to be included within the framework of your new replacement roof, giving you complete control over the amount of natural light that enters your conservatory. You can even direct this light where you want it – such as towards your kitchen or dining table.
