Conservatories are a popular way to add space, value and a whole new look to a home. Unfortunately, as the years go by and they age, their roofs can start to show signs of wear and tear. Whether this is from water or even from extreme weather conditions, it might be time to consider upgrading your conservatory with a replacement roof.
The good news is that replacing your existing conservatory roof with a solid tiled roof will save you money in the long run because it will be much more thermally efficient. Not only that but it will also improve light levels and make the room more comfortable on a cold winter’s day or a warm summer’s evening.
Depending on the size of your conservatory, the material used and the style of roof that you choose the cost will vary. For example, a gable conservatory roof will be more expensive than a lean-to due to the higher structural work required to support the additional weight.
There is also the choice of tiles to consider – concrete, slate or clay. Clay tiles offer a classic, recognisable and attractive look and are fire resistant, whereas slate offers a more traditional option with a lifespan of up to 100 years. Whichever type of roof you decide on, an accredited tradesperson or company will be able to advise you and take care of the paperwork that is required. This includes a Building Regulations approval certificate. conservatory roof replacement cost
