Why Choose A Replacement Conservatory Roof?
If your existing conservatory roof was poorly fitted the first time, or was installed a long time ago, it is likely to be too cold during the winter and too hot during the summer. This problem can, in many cases, be attributed to the roof itself – with the frames and foundations of the structure in question being of a sound quality.
A replacement conservatory roof is often a viable solution, as it meets modern performance standards in terms of thermal efficiency and, due to its lightweight design, complies with planning requirements and building regulations imposed by local authorities.
Of course, a replacement conservatory roof can be customised to suit the appearance of the property to which it is matched. This means that it’s possible to improve the market appeal of your home – thereby making it more attractive to buyers – simply by updating your system to a modern and higher-performing alternative.
Three Benefits Of Tiled Conservatory Roofs
Our customers in Surrey and South London are always keen to uncover the full range of benefits that come with a tiled conservatory roof.
Here are just three of the advantages of choosing a tiled system for your home – whether you’re replacing or building from scratch:
Don’t Rebuild, Replace
The lightweight design of tiled conservatory roofs makes them the perfect choice for home improvement scenarios whereby a structure is, in any other way, sound. If your frames and foundations are of good quality, you can bring your conservatory, orangery or extension up-to-date by replacing your old system.
By replacing instead of rebuilding, you’ll save money, time and hassle. That said, replacement conservatory roofs should also be of interest to anyone who is starting from scratch and wants to add value to their conservatory project.
Solid and Glazed Systems
When people think of replacement conservatory roofs, they often think that these systems are completely solid. Although it’s possible to have tiles throughout, glazing can be incorporated to fill the space below with lots of vital light.
There are many different tiled roofs out there, and so the compositional make-up of yours will depend on which one you choose. Our version can include full-height glazing that can be substituted with Velux windows instead.
Better Thermal Efficiency
Tiled conservatory roofs are more effective at retaining heat than standard polycarbonate systems. Because conservatories, orangeries and extensions are being used more like rooms these days, it’s important to stay warm.
You’ll be able to lower your energy costs and experience better overall U-values one you’ve instructed your local installer to fit a new tiled conservatory roof. The size of your carbon footprint will also noticeably decrease.
Tiled Conservatory Roof FAQs: Your Questions Answered
Can I Customise My Tiled Conservatory Roof?
You can customise your new conservatory roof, so that it meets your aesthetic and performance standards. For example, ours can be installed using a range of tile colours, so that your installation is sympathetic with the experience of your main property.
How Heavy Is A Tiled Conservatory Roof?
The weight of your roof will vary depending on the system that you choose. However, replacement conservatory roofs are lighter, which makes them ideal for homeowners who want to bring their existing conservatory or extension up-to-date.
How Quickly Can One Be Installed At My Home?
The lightweight design of a tiled system makes it easier to manipulate on site, reducing installation times. As an example, ours are prefabricated off-site, which means no messy or noisy cutting is needed when working at one of our customers’ properties.
What Glass Options Can I Choose From?
A tiled conservatory roof of market-leading quality will come with a range of glazing options available. Low-emissivity glass that reduces heat loss – and self-cleaning glass that burns off grimy deposits when it rains – are just two common options.
What If I Live In A Heritage Site?
A tile-based system is often preferable if a home is located in a heritage site, conservation area or area of natural beauty. Tiled conservatory roofs blend in well with the local character of a given area and comply better with planning requirements and building regulations.
How Much Does A Tiled Conservatory Roof Cost?
A tiled conservatory roof will vary in cost, depending on the enhancements that you choose. Remember that your installation will save you money on your energy bills, due to its thermally efficient design, while improving your home’s market appeal at the same time.
