Replacing Conservatory Roof with Solid Roof – Guardian Roofs UK

Here at Guardian Roofs UK we have a lot of enquiries from customers who complain about two main things. Firstly their conservatories are too hot during the summer months. This is due to poor reflection from their glass or polycarbonate roof allowing heat to penetrate and increase the temperature of the conservatory. Secondly, in the winter months their conservatories are too cold because of the poor insulation provided by glass and polycarbonate roofs. The answer to these two questions is Solid Conservatory Roofs. This article will explain why Replacing a Conservatory Roof With a Solid Roof is a good decision for your conservatory.

What is a Solid Conservatory Roof?


A Solid Conservatory Roof is a Conservatory Roof that is often tiled and used to replace the traditional conservatory roofing system which is a glass or polycarbonate roof. A Solid Conservatory Roof provides insulation and heat reflection like no other roof. Our Guardian Warm Roof systems are one of the industries leading Replacement Roofs and offer our customers year-round use of their conservatory. The installation that comes with Solid Conservatory Roofs is extremely fast and requires a minimal amount of preparation.

We ensure that our service conforms to all the building regulations set by the government and tailor our roofs to suit your needs. Since the change in the law in 2010 you no longer need planning permission to replace your conservatory roof with a solid roof. You do however need to get in touch with the Neighbour Consultation scheme. Laws do however change and they are different in varying areas. We recommend you check the Planning Portals Website for the most recent rules and regulations.


Is Replacing your Conservatory Roof with a Solid Roof Right For You?


Conservatories that have been built in the past 20 years or so will probably have been built using a polycarbonate or glass roofing system. These two roofing methods present a lot of problems for conservatories and provide little insulation during the winter months. Because of this your heating bills may be higher and you may not be able to use the conservatory. When thinking about replacing your conservatory roof for a solid alternative ask yourself two main questions.


  1. Is your conservatory too hot during summer and too cold during winter?
  2. Does your conservatory feel like an ‘add on’ as appose to an additional room?


These two questions will help you decide that it is in fact time to change your conservatory roof and transform your current conservatory into a room that you can use year-round in all four seasons.
