Choosing a Conservatory Roof

The conservatory roof that you choose for 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 conservatory 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 conservatory 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 conservatory 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 existing conservatory roof, you are not restricted to what is already there. If you have inherited a lean-to with a polycarbonate conservatory 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 conservatory roof for you in the style you choose.

Finally, get the conservatory 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 conservatory 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 conservatory 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. A polycarbonate conservatory roof 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.

A polycarbonate conservatory roof 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 conservatory with glass roof

Edwardian Conservatories

The Edwardian Conservatory is an excellent all-around choice. It still allows for a square or rectangular 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 conservatory roof to take the height back to the lower bungalow wall.

If you think of the lean-to conservatory roof shape 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 conservatory with glass roof

Victorian Conservatories

The Victorian Conservatory Roof shape is still popular in Northamptonshire. The angled corners make it the choice for those who are using the conservatory 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 roof 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 roof designs because rectangle glass panes are cheaper than the shaped ones used on Edwardian and Victorian conservatory roofs.

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 slope from the height of the main building.

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

Gable End Conservatories

The Gable End Conservatory 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. The Gable End Conservatory Roof 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 with a plastered ceiling. The Gable is the main feature, and you will want it to be seen. When considering the style of the conservatory roof, consider where the gable is seen from and if you will benefit from the full view of it.

How Do You Replace a Conservatory Roof?

The entire ring beam is removed. This is the structure that the roof glazing bars sit on and is above the windows. A new ring beam suitable for holding your replacement roof is installed. We then build the layers of insulation before finishing off with the tiled roof and roofline. 

Will upgrading to a solid conservatory roof add value to my home?

Yes, upgrading to a solid conservatory roof can add value to your home or make it more saleable. An old conservatory can put buyers off or make them offer a lower price because of the perceived cost of replacing it themselves.

Solid conservatory roofs offer several benefits that can enhance your property’s overall appeal and desirability, making it a more attractive option for potential buyers. Here’s why a solid conservatory roof can contribute to increased home value:

Enhanced Usability: Solid conservatory roofs provide better thermal insulation and temperature control, making the space more usable throughout the year. This expanded functionality can make your home more appealing to buyers looking for versatile living spaces.

Energy Efficiency: With improved insulation, a solid roof helps regulate indoor temperatures, reducing the reliance on heating and cooling systems. This energy efficiency can be attractive for eco-conscious buyers and those looking to save on utility bills.

Aesthetics and Architecture: Solid roofs offer a more seamless and integrated look with your home’s architecture than traditional glass or polycarbonate roofs. This cohesive design can enhance your home’s curb appeal and overall aesthetics.

Noise Reduction: Solid roofs can significantly reduce outside noise, creating a quieter and more peaceful environment inside the conservatory. Noise reduction can be particularly appealing if your property is located in a noisy area.

Privacy and Security: The solid construction of these roofs enhances privacy and security, as it limits visibility from the outside. Buyers seeking added privacy and safety features might consider this a valuable asset.

Low Maintenance: Solid conservatory roofs typically require less maintenance than glass or polycarbonate roofs, which might need frequent cleaning and upkeep. The reduced maintenance can be a selling point for potential buyers.

Longevity: Solid roofs are often more durable and have a longer lifespan than traditional roofing materials. This durability can appeal to buyers who want a low-maintenance solution that will stand the test of time.

When considering whether to upgrade to a solid conservatory roof because of additional value, remember that ideally, you will enjoy many years of benefit before your house goes on the market. The direct cost may not be recovered when you sell if you view the new roof as a direct investment. The value will depend on the standard of the existing conservatory.

Will replacing the roof make my conservatory more energy-efficient?

Yes, replacing the roof of your conservatory can significantly enhance its energy efficiency. Traditional glass or polycarbonate roofs often lack sufficient insulation, leading to temperature extremes and a higher reliance on heating or cooling systems.

Upgrading to a more advanced and insulated roofing material can address these issues and provide the following energy-efficient benefits:

Improved Thermal Insulation: Modern conservatory roofing materials, such as solid panels or insulated tiles, are designed to offer superior thermal insulation. They can effectively trap and retain heat during colder months and prevent excessive heat gain during warmer months.

Reduced Energy Consumption: With enhanced insulation, your conservatory’s interior will remain closer to the desired temperature, reducing the need for continuous heating or cooling, leading to lower energy consumption and reduced utility bills.

Year-Round Use: An energy-efficient conservatory can be used comfortably throughout the year. You won’t have to deal with the discomfort of extreme temperatures, making the space usable even during the hottest or coldest days.

Less Heat Loss: Traditional glass roofs can allow heat to escape easily, causing the room to lose warmth quickly. Upgraded roofs with better insulation retain heat for longer, creating a more stable and cosy indoor environment.

Better Temperature Control: A more energy-efficient conservatory roof helps regulate indoor temperatures, reducing the need for frequent adjustments to your home’s heating or cooling systems.

Financial Savings: By using less energy for heating and cooling, you’ll see a decrease in your energy bills over time. Long-term savings can offset the initial investment in an upgraded roof.

Environmental Impact: Lower energy consumption translates to a reduced carbon footprint. Upgrading your conservatory roof contributes to a greener lifestyle by conserving energy resources.

Less Wear and Tear on Heating or Air Conditioning: With an energy-efficient roof, your home’s heating and cooling systems won’t need to work as hard to maintain comfortable temperatures, potentially extending their lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.

Increased Property Value: The energy efficiency of your conservatory and the added comfort it offers can enhance your property’s overall appeal and value.
