Replace your existing conservatory roof

Replacement Conservatory Roofs

You might be wondering why you might need a new roof – especially if your existing roof isn’t damaged.

Well, there are a variety of reasons why it could be a good investment. The first reason concerns the temperature of your conservatory.

Is it freezing cold in winter?

If so, you could be losing lots of the heat you generate through the roof. If the roof is old or damaged – there is a distinct possibility that this might be the case.

Is your conservatory unbearably hot in summer?

The amount of sunlight that your conservatory in the summer months can make it prone to overheating. New sophisticated roofing technologies like solar control glazing can help mitigate this problem.

If you have a dated polycarbonate roof, the sound of rain and hail can give you a headache. Once again, new advancements prevent loud noises like this, so you can actually hear yourself think.

The good news about all of this – is that we can help. Conservatory Land is able to provide high-quality, durable and affordable replacement conservatory roofs to your specific needs.

With a replacement roof, you can transform your extension into a more comfortable living space – whatever the weather.

If you’d like to see some examples of our conservatory roofs, then check out the gallery below.

We actually manufacture and supply your brand new DIY conservatory roof to your exact specifications. This could also include self-cleaning solar control class if you want it.

As with a full conservatory, we’ll deliver it to you for free, with easy-to-follow instructions. If you need any assistance during the installation, we’re only a phone call away.

It should only take you a day to install the replacement roof. Obviously, we’d recommend choosing a day when it isn’t raining to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible.

And, once it’s done – you’ll have it guaranteed for the next ten years.

Customise Your Conservatory Roof

When purchasing a replacement roof from ConservatoryLand, we can tailor your order to meet your exact needs.

The first is the roof type – which means picking between polycarbonate and glass. We’d recommend the latter, as it generally offers better clarity.

This means you can take in everything that the outdoors has to offer.

Rain won’t make as much noise upon impact with glass, either. And, as we touched on earlier – certain types of glazing can offer protection from the sun.

After that, it’s time to decide which (if any) roof vent you need. The options are:

  • Manual – this requires a long pole in order to operate it.
  • Wall-mounted switch – this opens and closes the vent electronically.
  • Climate control – this opens the vent automatically based on the room temperature of your conservatory, and closes if rain is detected.

Finally, you need to choose the colour of the roof frame. Choices are plain white, rosewood, golden oak, grey – or a combination of white and one of the other colour options.

Building a Conservatory Roof

Now it’s time to crack on with the exciting part – installing your replacement conservatory roof.

This task is relatively straightforward if you follow a few simple step-by-step instructions.

Once you’ve disassembled your existing roof, you need to ensure that the new roof is ready to go as soon as possible.

We all know how quickly the weather can turn. So, it’s important to make sure you don’t waste too much time getting the new roof in place.

Step 1: Roof ridge

This is a custom-made part made to the exact measurements you need. It should sit above the conservatory frames – ready to accommodate the new roof sections.

Step 2: Glazing bars

From a structural point of view – this is arguably the most important part to get right.

Step 3: Glazing panels

Obviously, you need to handle these carefully. Especially if you’re fitting glass panels!

Step 4: Guttering

Gutters are a must in order to keep your roof well-maintained. These are fairly simple to fix.

Step 5: Lead flashing

Have a final look around to make sure everything is fixed as it should be. The last thing you want is for you new roof to start leaking. The process of  fitting lead flashing is an important final step.

This is a logical approach to building your new conservatory roof. However, how you actually decide to go about it is entirely up to you.

Do you need planning permission to change a conservatory roof?

As long as you follow conservatory planning permission guidelines, it’s likely that you won’t need to consider planning permission.

If the conservatory is a single-storey extension that does not exceed four metres in height – planning permission isn’t needed.

So, as long as you’re not replacing your old roof with an outlandishly tall new roof – you should be fine.

That being said, you’ll want to double-check that your new roof still meets planned development rules. If the new roof takes your conservatory’s height even slightly over the permitted height, there may be a problem.

Building and planning authorities can order you to take the roof off again. Or, if you ever decide to sell your house in the future – this might be scrutinised.

It’s best to protect yourself – and knowing the rules certainly won’t harm you.

How much does it cost to replace a conservatory roof?

The cost of replacing your roof depends on a few different things.

First of all, are you going to pay someone to disassemble the old roof and put the new one on? Or, are you going to do it all yourself?

The DIY route might take you more time – but should alleviate some of the overall cost.

Then, you need to consider the materials used to make your new replacement roof. Our guide on the different conservatory roof types is a good place to start,

Polycarbonate is generally less expensive than glass. You’ll obviously pay more of a premium for self cleaning solar control glass if you’re really keen to upgrade.

If you want to talk rough ‘ballpark’ figures with us – we’re more than happy to help.

We like to get an understanding of your specific wants and needs. And, we do our best to make them a reality – with a DIY replacement conservatory roof you’ll be proud of.
