Why Solid Roofs Are A Growing Trend

Solid roofs have become a big selling product for home improvement specialists like us in recent times as conservatory owners look to make their extension habitable in all weathers.

Thousands of conservatories sit empty during the summer and winter months as they offer insufficient thermal efficiency, causing their interiors to feel disproportionately warm or cold – a waste of money and space. The finger of blame can largely be pointed at the roof covering.  

So long as you have Permitted Development Rights, Building Regulation Approval, and planning permission when necessary, you can replace the existing roof with a solid roof.

Composed of lightweight tiles or lightweight slates, a solid roof provides various benefits:

Enhanced thermal efficiency

The weather will never again scupper any plans you have to use your conservatory as a solid roof will hugely enhance thermal efficiency. It has layers of insulation within it and can keep all conditions out.

Enhanced acoustics

The many layers of insulation in a solid roof will also help to enhance acoustics as external noise will be less likely to be heard. Even noisy neighbours and heavy rain striking the roof will be unable to disturb the enjoyment you get out of the space.

Enhanced aesthetics

Solid roofs come in a choice of styles and colours making it easy for you to find a solid roof that complements the conservatory design itself and the rest of your home. They’re also weather-resistant, so there’s no possibility of the colour wearing away over time.

Enhanced value

Once a solid roof has been integrated into your conservatory, suddenly it will become valuable again and boost the resale cost of your house. Put yourself in the shoes of a prospective buyer of your house – would you be more inclined to buy a property with a conservatory that does or doesn’t supply sufficient thermal efficiency?

Enhanced light

It is well-known that a solid roof installation can cause a loss of natural light, but you can always include skylights in the roof design to draw light in. Skylights also come in useful for ventilation purposes when the inside of the space could do with a fresh injection of air.
