Raising the standard for solid conservatory roofs in South Wales
Solid conservatory roofs have become an incredibly popular home improvement across South Wales in recent times – and for good reason.
The roofs, which can be retro-fitted to most existing conservatories, make a significant difference to the appearance and way people use the room.
To date there have been two main choices for solid conservatory roofs, one is traditionally styled with a tiled effect, while the second is unashamedly modern, with a smooth, grey exterior and the ability to add large glass panels.
However, brand new to the market is a conservatory roof that offers the best of both worlds.
With a tiled effect, the roof suits the architecture of most traditionally constructed south Wales homes. It has also been designed to incorporate rectangular glass panels anywhere on the roof, allowing you to zone the areas that you would like most light.
Designed and manufactured by one of the leading conservatory roof companies in the UK, the roof is strong yet lightweight enough to be fitted onto an existing conservatory.
It also offers the same thermal efficiency as a traditionally constructed roof.
Nigel Hocking of Securahome explained: “This is the first solid conservatory roof that has been designed from scratch and it offers great versatility.
“It weighs little more than a glass roof so can be fitted to most conservatories and has full building regulations approval.
“The option to add glass panels means you can still have light flooding in, but the rest of the roof is highly-insulated for thermal efficiency.
“It makes for a very flexible roof that really can transform a conservatory into a year-round room.”
In fact, such is the insulation qualities of the roof that, combined with thermally efficient glass, it can mean there is no requirement to separate your conservatory from the main room with a door.
“The ability to have the conservatory flow into an existing kitchen or family room creates a very versatile space,” Nigel added. “So many of us today want extra dining of family space, particularly on a kitchen, and this roof helps you achieve that while using an existing conservatory structure.”
As with all of Securahome’s solid conservatory roofs, the interior ceiling is finished with plasterboard with options to include downlights if wanted.
Each roof is bespoke and manufactured to your specified size, tile choice and glass panels, before being fitted to the conservatory.
While the fitting is relatively quick, the design and manufacturing process, together with any building approvals needed, means it’s wise to plan ahead for a roof installation project. The finished result will transform the way you use your conservatory and add a real ‘wow factor’ to your home.
