Replacing a conservatory roof

If you have an existing conservatory, you may find that it is cold in winter and too warm in summer. You may also have had an older-style polycarbonate roofing system on the conservatory which can start to lose it's looks after a number of years. Glass roof conservatories can also act like a greenhouse in summer and face condensation problems during the winter.

Rather than replace your whole conservatory, it's worth while considering replacing the roofing system for a solid roof. There are several advantages of having a solid roof system on your conservatory these include:

  • aesthetically - they look good and will bring your existing conservatory back to life
  • The roofing system will help to save energy,they have a U-value of 0.18 so there will be less energy being wasted through the room.
  • Year round use of your space
  • Dramatically reduces the noise of rainfall on your conservatory
  • Increases the value of your home

    Choosing a solid roof for your new conservatory?

    The benefits of choosing a solid roof

    Guardian Roof System on a new conservatory

    If you are planning a new conservatory or extension to your home. The Guardian Solid Roof System is a great choice. Research has found that a solid roof conservatory adds more value to your home than a traditional polycarbonate or glass roof alternative.

    The Guardian Roof System is based on an insulated lightweight tiled roof that is not only beautiful but it will keep your room at an ambient temperature all year round.

    Along with better energy efficiency, the roof system offers a range of finishes for the inside of the room. You could choose from a plaster finish or have a wood-effect UPVc lining for the roof. There's also a choice of finishing touches such as the lighting within the roof system to create the brighter, warmer and more beautiful conservatory of your dreams.

    You can also choose to have a roof window installed to increase the amount of light into the conservatory. The system can also be used on other areas of your home, for example we have used the Guardian Roof System on several of our front porch projects.

    If you would like to include a solid roof on your new conservatory or extension then please discuss this with the Celsius Team on 0151 545 1400
