Customer Feedback

I am very happy with the work carried out on my new conservatory roof and would not hesitate to recommend the company to other people and the 2 guys Steve & Simon who did a good job.

The Project

This conversion wasn't just converting a Conservatory Roof, it is about converting the whole Conservatory into a Sunroom, a new room in their home.

We started by removing everything above the base brick-layer. This included the conservatory windows and roof. As the conservatory was being completely converted to a sunroom, all of this had to go.

We built up from the existing brick-layer to the required height and added in uPVC windows to let in the light. We also added new uPVC doors at the entrance to their garden. The uPVC used for the windows and doors are thermally efficient and will allow the sunroom to keep the heat inside while still looking sleek and beautiful.

After the sunroom structure was built, we added on the Warm Roof. This tiled roof protected the room from overheating in summer and keeps the heat during winter. An additional window was added into the warm roof to allow that extra bit of light in. 

We thoroughly enjoyed this project and are happy that Mr & Mrs Brown are over the moon with their new sunroom. It is always nice having a new room and imagining all the different possibilties of what it can be.

How long does installation of a Warm Roof take?

Usually, a Warm Roof takes 2 - 3 days to install. 

Day 1: We remove your old conservatory roof and lay down the supports for the new warm roof to be installed. We add the weather-proof plyboard on top of the supports soon after.

Day 2: We apply a waterproof membrane on top of the plyboard and secure it tightly. Afterwards, we use the tile of your choice and add them to the roof ensuring there are no gaps for weather tightness.

Day 3: We add insulation inside in multiple layers to ensure high energy efficiency. We secure the insulation to ensure airtightness so you won't get any drafts.

This is just a brief overview of the process. For more detailed information, get in touch with a showroom today.

Is planning permission required?

Most new-build Conservatories do not need planning permission. This is a general rule of thumb and therefore is not guaranteed to be the same for you. We handle any planning permission for you so get in touch with us and let us help you.

Does putting a roof on a conservatory make it warmer?

The short answer is Yes! A thermally efficient roof will keep the heat inside your conservatory resulting in warmer temperatures inside. There are variations of a conservatory warm roof, the most popular being a replacement tiled roof.

We have our own Timber based conservatory roof which we like to call the Thermoroof! We are very proud of our Thermoroof and the results of having one installed.

Do you offer a free design service?

We offer a Free No Obligation design service either in-store or from the comfort of your own home.

Will there be a lot of mess?

Depending on the work, they may be some mess. Some projects are naturally messy (i.e. removing a wall for an extension) however we have rubbish collection after each day picking up the rubbish for you so you don't have to worry about any mess that is created.

What are the advantages of a Warm Roof?

A Warm Roof is designed to stop too much sunlight from coming into your conservatory. This makes it cooler in the scorching hot summers outside. The Warm Roof is tiled as well as protecting you from the harsh weather as well as being energy efficient. In winter this makes it so that the heat stays inside, keeping the Conservatory warm and keeping your heating bills low.
