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 a good reason.
What are Solid Conservatory Roofs?
Solid Conservatory Roofs are roofs which can be retro-fitted to most existing conservatories. It makes a significant difference to the appearance and way people use the room.
Are there different types of conservatory roofs ?
There are two main choices for solid conservatory roofs. The first is in a traditional style with a tiled effect. The second option is modern, with a smooth, grey exterior and the ability to add large glass panels.
However we now have a third option. New to the market is a conservatory roof that offers the best of both worlds.
Offering a tiled effect, the roof suits the architecture of most traditionally constructed south Wales homes. Yet it is allows you to incorporate rectangular glass panels anywhere on the roof. This enables you to zone the areas where 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.
However, it is important to know it offers the same thermal efficiency as a traditionally constructed roof.
Nigel Hocking of Securahome says : “This is the first solid conservatory roof which offers great versatility.”
“It weighs roughly the same as 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.”
Are they thermally efficient?
The insulation qualities of this modern roof and thermal glass is extremely efficient. In fact, this means there is no need 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 this tends to be in the kitchen area. So, this roof helps you achieve that while using an existing conservatory structure.”
As with all of Securahome’s solid conservatory roofs, the interior ceiling has plasterboard so that downlights can be included.
Each roof is bespoke and manufactured to your specified size, tile choice and glass panels, before being fitted to the conservatory.
How long does the process take?
While the fitting is relatively quick, the design and manufacturing process, along with any building approvals can take time. This means it’s wise to plan ahead for a roof installation project.
What is the final result?
Finally, we believe a solid conservatory roof will transform the way you use your conservatory whilst adding a real ‘wow factor’ to your home.
