Why do you need a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof? With the conservatory landscape drastically evolving in the last couple of years, other replacement conservatory roof options have become available. So consumers are looking at a range of options these days, with solid and glass conservatory roofs increasing in popularity – as well as hybrid alternatives, such as Ultraframe’s Livinroof and Ultraroof.

When asked, ‘Why do you need a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof?’ we try to steer our customers toward newer alternatives. Polycarbonate is an opaque material that obscures views of the outside and can make a conservatory feel enclosed – an important fact to bear in mind if your construction is likely to be small.

So, how do you decide if you need a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof? If your current system is underperforming – but your foundations, frames, and door are sound – we’d recommend that you investigate glass or tiled replacement conservatory roofs or our hybrid systems: Livinroof and Ultraroof.

A replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof might suffer from leaking, condensation and water ingress – leading to issues such as dampness, mould and mildew. Ultraframe offers a viable alternative to the polycarbonate roof system that is cost effective and will provide great performance all year round!

Your Alternative to a Replacement Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof

By simply replacing your polycarbonate conservatory roof with a glazed roof by Ultraframe, you will be rewarded with a whole host of benefits. These include improved heat retention, reduced solar heat gain, reduced noise, and improved light transmission. It's also a low maintenance solution.

Another advantage of choosing an Ultraframe glass based system instead of a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof is that your structure will burn off organic deposits such as fingerprints, grime and bird droppings. The smooth coating used in your product will allow water to cleanse the surface, removing dust and debris easily.

Instead of researching the benefits of a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof, talk to Ultraframe. Our systems have been carefully researched and developed and will reward you with high performance standards, standout aesthetics, and durability.

All our systems are fully compliant with Building Regulations and have JHAI system approval, which will give you peace of mind that your new conservatory roof is the best investment for your home.

Our Products Instead of a Replacement Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof

Selecting an alternative to a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof is easy when you choose Ultraframe.


Our Livinroof is a hybrid system that’s both solid and glazed. Having voted against installing a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof, you’ll benefit instead from a system that allows for the installation of glazing shaped to your requirements and which can be placed where desired – meaning you can control where you want the light to fall. Internally, an insulated pelmet delivers a cosy real room feel by allowing for the inclusion of spotlights and speakers.

Classic Roof

The Classic Roof is a natural alternative that you should explore if you’ve decided against a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof. Weather-tested for water tightness and wind speeds up to 130mph, this system is incredibly strong, especially when compared to replacement polycarbonate roofs. It’s also highly configurable, as evidenced by its low pitch eaves beam and variable ridges that allow it to fit anywhere between 2.5-40.9°.


Like the Livinroofits, the Ultraroof is a hybrid system that combines tiling and glass - unlike a replacement polycarbonate conservatory roof. Most notably, its flexible design is compatible with full height glazing or Velux windows, which means you have complete control over its design. It’s also the lightest tiled roof available, enabling it to overcome issues commonly encountered with planning permission and building regulation schemas.

For your additional peace of mind, the Ultraroof has been tested by Warrington Fire as a complete system to meet the following guidelines B-Roof according to EN 13501-5:2016 and AC according to BS476-3:2004.
