Ultraroof and Livinroof in Focus: Making Your New Room Brighter and More Comfortable with Solid Roofs

Although Livinroof and Ultraroof are solid roofs, their designs differ slightly. Both provide superb levels of thermal performance and block out unwanted noise, while also letting in plenty of light.

Your Ultra Installer will help with your design - and liaise with your local authority or another relevant body - to get Building Regulations approval.

Solid replacement roofs for conservatories will provide you with a comfortable space that's like an extension of your home and act as a long-term investment.

Conservatory or Extension? The Choice is Yours with Livinroof or Ultraroof

Many scenarios could have brought you here today. Maybe you have an existing conservatory or extension that’s being let down by a poorly performing roof. On the other hand, you may be at the planning stage – in which case a conservatory roof conversion that’s also suitable for house extensions will be ideal.

If you’ve been researching house extensions, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Ultraroof Extension will suit your needs. Using a more simplified design that’s suited to the shape of an extension, it also includes brick or super insulated columns and allows for the inclusion of stunning bi-fold doors.

The Livinroof extension is also worth a closer look if you want a solid roof that’s suitable for an extension. Super-insulated columns are included with this system too, which has been designed to make cutting through legislative red tape easy – so your new room should comply with building regulations.

Benefits of a Solid Roof

Comfort Guaranteed

Why should I replace the roof on my conservatory? 

A new solid roof will keep your home warm and comfortable. The Livinroof system benefits from high-performing slab insulation and externally positioned composite panels. Its internal ceiling pelmet is filled with mineral wool insulation for your additional comfort and will help keep you warm during colder weather.

Similar thermal technology powers the Ultraroof, which means both these solid roofs provide low U-values. In other words, the materials used in their design will be especially efficient at preventing heat loss. The high-performing glass included in both will block out most UV rays and further improve heat retention.

A Compatible Replacement

The Livinroof and Ultraroof have been designed to work with all existing window systems. This is especially important if you are about to replace your existing conservatory roof and want reassurance that your new replacement system is compatible, no matter your current build we'll be able to accommodate. This means that you'll be able to find your ideal option sooner.

Whatever the size or shape of your current conservatory, the Livinroof or Ultraroof will integrate with your existing system seamlessly and upgrade the performance of your new room. You'll be able to enjoy a standard of comfort and protection that can't be found in any other conservatory roof design. Don't settle for less when you don't have to!
