If you have a conservatory that is often too hot in summer and cold in winter, a new conservatory tiled roof can transform it into a comfortable all year round living space. This is because a solid tiled roof allows you to control the temperature inside and reduces glare from the sun creating a great space for relaxing or entertaining. This addition to your home will add value and a sense of permanence that can increase the resale value of your property.
The modern design of a tiled conservatory roof can be matched to the roof tiles on your house making for a seamless look. This, combined with the plastered ceiling, will give you a room that is just as stylish as any other living space on your property. This opens up a wealth of interior design opportunities and gives you the chance to use statement lighting or recessed down lights to make your conservatory really stand out.
Many conservatory roof replacement systems offer the ability to install Velux windows in your new solid tiled roof conservatory. These windows are available in a wide range of sizes, glazing options and interior finishes to suit your taste. They can also be customised to match the style of your conservatory and are ideal for bringing more natural light into your room.
A tiled conservatory roof is far more insulative than a polycarbonate roof and as such will reduce the amount of energy you have to spend on heating your home in winter. It is also more weather resistant than glass or polycarbonate and as such will protect your conservatory from a number of issues that can affect these types of roofs including fading, discolouration and heat loss.
The u-value of a conservatory with a tiled roof is considerably lower than that of a glass or polycarbonate roof, this means that less heat will escape your home which can dramatically cut down your energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint. This is one of the most significant benefits of a solid tiled roof over a glass or polycarbonate conservatory.
An added benefit is that because the roof will have a solid surface you will get a good deal more sound insulation. This can be particularly useful if you plan on using your conservatory as a bedroom, office or playroom.
It is important to note that a solid roof can be installed only on a conservatory that has been designed and built with this type of structure in mind. A qualified professional will be able to assess your existing conservatory and ensure that it is able to support the additional weight of a solid roof. If not, then you will need to have it strengthened or rebuilt in order to accommodate a solid roof. This will increase the cost but is a much cheaper and quicker option than building a brand new conservatory from scratch.
