Sustainability and Style: How a Flat Roof Can Modernise Your Conservatory

November 17, 2023|News

Many mistakenly believe that a conservatory is only suitable for period properties and historic homes. While Victorian and Edwardian-style glazed conservatories are typically found in older properties, there are many conservatory roof styles that perfectly complement a more modern home.

Many conservatories typically feature a highly-pitched glass roof, but tiled flat roofing can modernise your conservatory and create a versatile, contemporary structure that extends the useable living space of your home.

Sleek contemporary style

Traditional styles such as Edwardian and Victorian conservatories might not suit newbuilds or contemporary properties – but there are plenty of other options available!

A flat or low-pitch conservatory roof replacement is a great way to refresh and rejuvenate an existing space.

Lean-to conservatory styles can be constructed with a low-pitch roof, adding sleek, modern style to your home. Contemporary and sophisticated, lean-to conservatories are increasingly popular with newbuilds. When combined with patio doors, this style of conservatory offers a seamless transition between inside and outside space.

A lean-to style is also relatively easy to install compared to other styles, meaning you can transform your home in no time!

A flat conservatory roof can also help your conservatory ‘blend in’ more with your existing home, making it a seamless additional part of your living space.

Optimal thermal efficiency

We offer a range of conservatory roof styles using the SupaLite roofing system – unlike outdated polycarbonate conservatory roofs, the SupaLite system contains clever insulating technology and offers enhanced thermal efficiency, meaning you can enjoy a comfortable space in any season.

An incredibly energy-efficient roofing system, installing a SupaLite roof onto your existing conservatory can also help you keep your energy bills low in the long term as less-energy is needed to maintain a comfortable temperature in your conservatory.

Perfect for low-pitch conservatories

Available with either Lightweight Tiles or Tapco slates, the high quality SupaLite conservatory roof also comes in a range of colours and is compatible with any type of conservatory.

Because of the lightweight design of the Extralight Tiles, the SupaLite system is perfect for those wanting a flat or low-pitch conservatory roof!


Let the light in with a skylight

A flat or low-pitch roof can be customised with Sky Vista glass panels to allow as much or as little natural light as you choose. This means that you can create a sunlit, modern space to perfectly complement your existing home’s style!
