Roofs for New Conservatories and Old

Whether you are considering a new conservatory or replacing the roof on an existing conservatory, Styleglaze Installations has the perfect roof for the way you live. The right choice will give you more useable space and make sure your conservatory is an attractive feature of your home all year round.

We are a family business with over 30 years of experience in the double glazing industry, so we understand the importance of choosing the right product for your needs. We also understand that not everyone’s needs are the same and that’s why we take the time to listen to our customers and offer a bespoke service.

Choosing a Conservatory Roof

The roof that you choose for your conservatory will influence the amount of time you spend in it. A poorly insulated conservatory will be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter, making it unusable for much of the year.

You can avoid this by choosing a good quality conservatory roof. All our roofs are good quality but even the best quality glass roof will require blinds on the hottest days, especially if your conservatory faces South.

We replace all types of roofs but if you want to use your conservatory all year round, consider a solid tile conservatory roof.

Replacement Conservatory Roofs

The most popular reason for changing the conservatory roof is to make it more usable throughout the year. During the lockdown, families sought to find the most cost-effective way of finding more space; for offices, and study or play areas and just to create distance as we all spent far more time at home.

It’s likely that planning rules have changed since your conservatory was built. A solid roof extension was probably cost-prohibitive. Now that restrictions have been relaxed, you can usually replace your roof without planning permission.

Conservatory Roof Shapes

If you are considering a new conservatory, you will be able to choose any roof that you want as long as you have the space for it.

If you are replacing the roof, you are not restricted to what is already there. If you have inherited a lean-to with a polycarbonate roof, you could transform the space with an Edwardian or Gable roof to give it more height and style. We replace the entire ring beam which is the horizontal frame above the windows. We then build a completely new polycarbonate, glass or solid tiled roof for you in the style you choose.

Finally, get the extension you dreamed of!

Solid Roof Conservatories

Conservatories have been popular in the last 40 years because they have traditionally been a low-cost way of adding extra space. A conservatory has always been cheaper than a full extension and because of the glazing, a beautiful space that connects with the garden. The downside has always been that it is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.

A lightweight solid tile roof provides the connection to the outside because of the glazed walls, but with a plastered ceiling just like the rest of your house. The best of both worlds.

Glass roof conservatory

See the Stars

The most popular conservatory roof is still glass. There is no better place to sit on a summer evening than a glass roof conservatory where you can watch the sunset or see the stars.

You’ll be spoiled for choice with options for making your conservatory perfect for the way you live. A range of different thicknesses and tints help to control the amount of light and heat that enters the room and a manual or electric vent will help with airflow.

We’ll explore the roof options with you so that you make the right choice.

Conservatory with polycarbonate roof

Light-Weight and Cost-Effective

The lowest cost option for a conservatory roof is polycarbonate. It is lightweight, strong and obscure, so reduces glare. It’s the right choice for many people, especially those who want the most space for the least money.

Polycarbonate does not have the insulation properties of glass but you can make improvements with specially designed solar inserts.

When you choose your conservatory roof, also think about the room that it is built on to, as the light to that room will be affected.

Edwardian Conservatories

The Edwardian Conservatory is an excellent all-around choice. It still allows for a square or rectangle room but gives the benefit of a high ceiling or roof. This style can still be used on a bungalow but requires a double-sloped roof to take the height back to the lower bungalow wall.

If you think of the lean-to conservatory as the most modern and Victorian as the most traditional, the Edwardian falls in between the two. It can lean either way depending on decorative features.

Victorian Conservatories

The Victorian Conservatory is still popular in Northampton. The angled corners make it the choice for those who are using it as a garden room for relaxing rather than for those for whom space is the priority. One thing to bear in mind if you choose to have blinds. Shaped blinds are more expensive than rectangles. Ask your blind supplier if it’s possible to reduce the number of blinds by measuring for 1 blind per 2, or more, roof panes. This will reduce the price considerably.

If one side of your conservatory is along a straight edge, such as a fence or building, you can have just one corner in Victorian style and the other as Lean-to or Edwardian.

Lean-to Conservatories

A lean-to-conservatory is a popular choice for many people because it is a simple and elegant design that can work with any building. It is also one of the most cost-effective conservatory designs because rectangle glass panes are cheaper than the shaped ones used on Edwardian and Victorian conservatories.

A lean-to-conservatory has a flat roof that usually slopes down from the house, however, you can have a reverse slope. A reverse lean-to roof is a great choice for the back of a bungalow or single-story extension where you can’t achieve enough of a slope from the height of the main building.

A lean-to looks modern and can be adapted to almost any property style.

Gable End Conservatories

The Gable End extension combines all that is best about conservatories. It is rectangular so uses all of the floor space, has a high centre so plenty of glass for maximum light and is finished with a stunning triangular front. It has elegant simplicity with a stylish gable which can be plain or created with a sunburst design.

Even though the floor space may be the same as an Edwardian, the high roof along the full length gives a sense of space, especially with a tiled roof which has a plastered ceiling. The Gable is the main feature and you will want it to be seen. When considering the style of the conservatory, consider where it is seen from and if you will benefit from the full view of it.
