Many people find their existing conservatory, especially if it has an old polycarbonate roof, too hot to in Summer and too Cold in Winter meaning the room only has limited times of year when it can be used. For more than two decades we have worked to develop products that can transform an existing conservatory in to a room that can be enjoyed all year round. We have a choice of replacement conservatory options, and take care of the entire project, as a Local Authority Building Control partner we even take care of building regulations if required.
Replacement Conservatory with a Solid Roof - a conservatory becomes an extension
The above example project features a modern lightweight solid roof with inset glazing, the product featured on our modern single storey extension webpage. We have two lightweight solid roof options, one with an authentic tile/slate external look, and the other with grey aluminium panles. On this project the client not only wanted a replacement conservatory with a solid roof to transform the thermal performance of the room, but wanted to open up the side of the room on to their patio, so we ammended the brickwork and included aluminium bifold doors in our design. Glazed sections were included in the replacement conservatory solid roof to allow natural light in to the room leading in from the house. Changing from a glass or polycarbonate roof to a solid roof changes the status of the room, which can not be defined as a conservatory, which is a room with a minimum of 75% of its roof glazed, there is no such thing as a solid roofed conservatory. This project needed building regulation approval, from checking the suitability of the existing foundations, installing reinforced side frames to take the additional applied dead load of the roof, through to final certification, we took care of everything.
