Replacing conservatory roofs with solid roofs

Replacing a conservatory roof is a great way to transform your existing conservatory to make it a comfortable room for all the family to enjoy.

Many homes in Stamford, Peterborough and Corby have conservatories that are lying unloved and unused. They have given the property much-needed extra space, but the old polycarbonate and traditional glazed roofs create uncomfortable living environments.

Too warm in summer, too cold in winter

These old conservatory roofs can create a greenhouse effect in the summer. When we are lucky to have sunshine, the heat from the sun beaming through the roof makes the space far too hot to enjoy.

In winter, the lack of insulation creates the opposite effect. The rooms are draughty and too cold to sit in. Bad ventilation can also lead to condensation issues which can cause damp. And add to that the noise of heavy rain on a polycarbonate roof…

But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Replacing conservatory roofs

Replacing your old glazed or polycarbonate roof with a solid roof alternative is a great way to improve the efficiency and comfort of your conservatory, without starting from scratch. If you have a sound conservatory structure and frames, we can replace your old roof with a lightweight, Ultraframe solid roof.

If you want to know if your conservatory roof can be replaced, book a free survey.

Energy efficient conservatory roof

Replacing your conservatory roof with an Ultraframe solid roof will transform your space into a room that can be used all year round. You could create the perfect playroom for the children, or transform your conservatory into an adults-only haven, perfect for movie nights or catching up with a good book and a cup of tea after bedtime.

The conservatory roof system we use offers standard U-Values of just 0.17 W/m2K, with the additional option to reduce that to 0.13 W/m2K. It is a complete ‘warm roof’ system which means there is no risk of cold bridging – which is where a gap in the insulation can lead to condensation. Your new roof will fully insulate your conservatory to make it the perfect temperature for your family.

Choose your perfect conservatory roof design

There are plenty of design options to create the conservatory that works best for your home. Authentic-look replica tiles perfectly suite with the roof of your home. Colour options include Carbon Grey, Harvest Brown and Terra Brick.

If you’re concerned about the room being too dark, you can choose to have full-length glazed panels in your new roof, to let in extra daylight.

Internally, you will have a perfectly finished, plastered ceiling, so your new conservatory will feel more like an extension of your home. There is also an insulated pelmet, that is perfect for installing spotlights and even speakers, if you’re looking for a surround-sound cinematic experiences, or want an ultra-connected smart-home.

Any style conservatory

Conservatory roof replacements are available for all types of conservatory styles including:

  • Gable-end conservatory
  • Lean-to conservatory
  • Victorian conservatory
  • P-Shape conservatory
  • T-Shape conservatory

Our warm conservatory roof is suitable for pitches as low as 5 degrees, so even low-pitch lean-to conservatories can be converted into a more usable space.

New windows and doors for your conservatory

If you’re looking for a really impressive transformation, talk to our team about replacing the doors or windows in your new solid roof conservatory. The strength of the solid conservatory roof structure means that bi-folding doors up to 4 metres wide can be installed, to connect your conservatory to the garden. It creates the perfect entertaining space with extra cover during the Great British summer showers.

A solid roof replacement is a much quicker process than having a new one built, so there is minimal disruption to your home life.
