Get the Best of Both Worlds with the Ultraframe Livinroof

Adding a conservatory to your home is a relatively quick and inexpensive way to extend your living area and let more light in. A traditional conservatory will tend to become freezing cold in the winter, rendering it unusable, while, in sunny weather, its glass roof is like a magnifying glass on the back of your head.

Wouldn’t you prefer to have the best of both worlds? With Livinroof you can. This is a replacement conservatory roof with a difference, in that, to all extents and purposes it looks like a solid roof. The aluminium tiles that characterise its design can be replaced at any juncture with shaped segments of glazing. 

This means you’ll benefit from a tiled roof that will keep you warm, but without making your conservatory feel claustrophobic. Instead, your new room will be filled with plenty of space-creating light – which means you’ll be able to use your conservatory as an all-year-round space, whatever the weather.

The Livinroof features an internal ceiling pelmet that can include speakers and lights. This accentuates the idea of a room that’s more than an occasional space to spend time in during warmer weather. You can opt for a vaulted ceiling to create a sense of space, or a suspended one to make your conservatory feel cosy.

The Livinroof:

  • Can incorporate our Classic cornice, which will improve the sightline of your conservatory by hiding your guttering;
  • Comes in an ever-enduring urban grey that will complement the style of any house and imbue it with a modern effect;
  • Will arrive at your home in a pre-fabricated format that will preclude the need for cutting and reduce installation time.

How Does the Livinroof Work?

The Livinroof combines traditional conservatory glazing with thermally efficient solid roofing. We use insulated panels and Kingspan insulation to allow the roof to lock in solar heat, making it suitable for use all year round.

How is it Installed?

Ultraframe’s Livinroof has been designed for quick and easy installation. Our engineers can assemble the roof and make it watertight in just a couple of hours. The entire project will be finished within two days, ensuring minimal disruption to your home life.

What Does It Look Like?

How your Livinroof looks is entirely up to you. We offer a bespoke service where you can choose exactly how many glass panels you want to include in your conservatory roof, and how the ceiling will appear on the inside. 

Smaller spaces may benefit from just one or two glass roof panels, while larger conservatory rooms may prefer alternate glass and solid panels. The Livinroof design is able to accommodate any shape and style you can think of.

Is it Energy Efficient?

Due to the design of the Livinroof, it will conserve heat and light for far longer than most other conservatory designs. Not only that but by making your conservatory more user-friendly you are reducing the formerly wasted space that was in your home.

Why Choose Livinroof?

Adaptability and Performance

Livinroof is a versatile replacement conservatory roof system that can be used to serve a range of purposes. If you want to add value to your home – by adding an extension or conservatory – the Livinroof will give you the design flexibility you need to create a product that’s aesthetically and performatively outstanding. 

If your existing extension or conservatory roof is no longer performing, your room will suffer from reduced functionality. It is probably too cold to spend time in during autumn and winter and may have already been relegated to a storage area. Livinroof will rectify this problem by providing you with a space that’s warm and comfortable. It is also fitted as standard on our range of Garden Rooms, delivering exceptionally insulated and cosy living spaces. 

Compatibility and Regulations

The Livinroof system is compatible with all roofing systems. This means you won’t have to worry about how compatible it is with your existing roof. It is also extremely light in weight, which means it won’t place undue stress on your extension’s or conservatory’s frames – so you are unlikely to run into issues with planning permission later on.

To ensure your replacement conservatory roof is safe and complies in full with regulations, we use specialist industry software that will use your postcode to factor in issues like snow loading into its design. This means your roof will be able to tolerate additional weight, instead of collapsing due to the extra strain placed on its frames.
