Updating Your Space: How To Put a Roof On A Conservatory

December 4, 2023|News

Our homes are in a constant state of flux and revision – we redecorate, add extensions and constantly adapt our properties to meet our ever-changing needs.

Conservatories are an often overlooked feature of our homes that go neglected for much of the year when the weather isn’t optimal. Immensely popular during the 1980s and 1990s and often built with a thermally-inefficient polycarbonate roof, many conservatories have not been updated to keep up with modern trends.

A conservatory roof replacement can make all the difference in transforming your living space and revitalising your existing conservatory.

How can you make sure that your conservatory space evolves alongside your home? How can you adapt your conservatory to make sure that it is a practical but also stylish space?


Why is a conservatory roof so important?

You might be wondering why there is so much importance placed on a conservatory roof, but the truth is that your roof will play a huge role in the usability of your space.

Picking a type of roof that balances style with practicality and energy efficiency is a great way to modernising the appearance of your conservatory while ensuring that it is a versatile, usable living area all year round.

What type of conservatory roof should I choose?

Conservatory roofs vary wildly in terms of style and material, a choosing the right roof is essential for ensuring that you are able to get the most use out of your space.

Some conservatory roofs are what you might think of as a ‘traditional’ style – i.e. a glass conservatory roof that is designed to let in large amounts of light.

Tiled conservatory roofs, such as the Supalite roof system are crafted with lightweight modern tiles that are designed to be durable, weatherproof and offer outstanding thermal efficiency thanks to high performance insulation. While not allowing as much natural light into the space, these tiled roofs offer exceptional energy efficiency and are great for transforming outdated conservatories into well-loved and useable spaces.


Choosing your conservatory style

There are many different conservatory styles to choose from, ranging from contemporary to traditional styles. Designs such as a Victorian or Edwardian style roof offer classic charm, or you can opt for something more contemporary like a lean-to or P-shaped conservatory.
