Are solid conservatory roofs worth it?

A conservatory can make a home bigger, brighter and more practical, opening up to the surrounding landscape. They can also add to the re-sale value of a home, with views from inside and outside boosting curb appeal. There is, however, one very obvious potential problem; energy efficiency. Traditional glass and polycarbonate conservatories are simply not as well insulated as the other rooms in a house. It’s a simple fact that glass and polycarbonate retain less heat than a well-insulated tiled roof and wall cavity.


Is a solid roof the best option?

If your conservatory is too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer, it’s sensible to consider a tiled roof. With a solid conservatory roof you’re essentially able to make the room feel like a part of your home, rather than an add-on that doesn’t get used for much of the year. That said, you will likely lose a small amount of natural light, and you’ll no longer have sky views, unless of course you incorporate skylights. It’s important to consider how you plan to use the room in the future, whether that be a snug, gym, living area, dining room, garden room or home office. There have been many improvements made with glass conservatories in recent years, however, only a tiled roof delivers all of the following advantages:


  • You can use the space all year round
  • Improves acoustics so it’s much quieter when it rains
  • Can be made to complement your home’s existing architecture
  • Very little light loss
  • Plants do not wilt so quickly
  • Less glare from the sun
  • Reduced UV rays, making safer for young children
  • Reduced energy bills
  • Extremely durable
  • Reduce cleaning and maintenance costs
  • Minimal loss of ceiling height
  • Can be installed on almost all conservatory types


The best way to make your conservatory warm and comfortable

Rather than starting again with a completely new conservatory, a tiled roof allows you to maintain your existing structures, frames and basework. The installation process can be completed in just a few days, so it’s certainly the fastest and most effective solution for uplifting and enhancing your property. The final result is a more permanent and ‘extension-like’ feel to the room, yet it can also provide extra support to the structure, so you reap the rewards without a large investment.
