There really is no overestimating the value of a good conservatory roof. Even cavemen – who first walked this world thousands of years ago – appreciated the value of having a roof over their head. Starting with the Romans, there began a huge shift in the function of a roof as the design became just as much about style as it did about shelter.

To this day, many people still understand just how much a roof can transform a building. However, the importance of finding the perfect conservatory roof has only started to grow over the past few decades. Modern innovations and contemporary materials allow conservatory roofs to completely surpass their traditional counterparts.

The Benefits of a New Conservatory Roof

When it comes to choosing a new conservatory roof, there are more options than ever before. It really just depends on what exactly you are looking for. People have already clocked onto many of the benefits of changing their conservatory roof, from cutting down their energy bills to modernising their home.

It's one reason that there has been a huge shift away from using polycarbonate materials. Our investment into research and development has enabled us to offer a conservatory roof design that stands at the forefront of performance, allowing you to bring an unrivalled standard of quality to your home.

Which Conservatory Roof Should You Choose?

We offer several popular options – often leaving our customers spoilt for choice. Firstly, there is the glazed Classic conservatory, a glass conservatory roof which is extremely thermally efficient with excellent solar control and is also self-cleaning. Over 1 million of thee conservatory roofs have been installed, a testimony to their quality.

Another fantastic product, Livinroof combines solid and glazed roofing, which allows natural light to enter without the temperature dropping at a rapid pace. These options are well-liked by those who want to use their conservatory all year round rather than in just the summer months, offering a living space that constantly delivers.

Then there is Ultraroof, which uses lightweight tiles to look super sleek outside while feeling extremely comfortable on the inside. This conservatory roofs expertly combines a timeless, traditional aesthetic with all the benefits of modern design to deliver the very best of both worlds for homeowners.

What Are the Benefits of Glass Conservatory Roofs and Tiled Conservatory Roofs?

Many people are ditching their polycarbonate conservatory roof. For starters, the design now looks extremely dated. Then there is also the fact that polycarbonate roofs are harder to clean and offer a lot fewer thermal benefits. Like polycarbonate roofs, glass roofs promote sunlight all year round but update it with modern benefits.

They have a much better thermal performance and – with the right specification – can exclude more than 80% of the sun’s energy. Glass conservatory roofs also collect a lot less dirt and are much easier to clean especially if you choose to use the self-cleaning glass. Not only does these roofs deliver exceptional quality, they do it in a practical way.

Then there are solid conservatory roofs, which offer the best of both worlds. Light can still flood into the conservatory through its windows, and systems like Livinroof allow for you to insert full glass panels and shaped glazing. These innovative designs also feature a vaulted ceiling for an increased degree of spaciousness.

The Ultraroof also consists of solid roof tiles and can also have fully glazed glass panels inserted to allow for as much natural light as possible. This makes the room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Tiled conservatory roofs aren’t anywhere near as high maintenance as a polycarbonate roof and usually won’t need cleaning for many years.
