Whether you’re looking to create the perfect place for the kids to play or that tranquil space where you can relax and watch the clouds roll by, a conservatory is a great addition to any home.
Make the most of your home improvement project and turn your conservatory into a truly functional living area with a solid replacement roof.
Tiled Conservatory Roofs
When your conservatory’s glass or polycarbonate roof starts to show signs of age, you can replace it with a new tiled one. This will transform the space and make it much more usable at any time of year.
These roofs are insulated like the main roof of your home, meaning they keep the room at a comfortable temperature all year round. This means that you can rely less on central heating in the winter, which also helps to lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
A new conservatory with a solid tiled roof can become the office you’ve always wanted, the extra bedroom for guests or that chillout area to practise yoga and arts and crafts. A new conservatory with a solid roof is so cosy that it can be used at any time of day, no matter the weather. This is why it’s a popular choice for homeowners across South Wales. It also looks great.
A roof vent allows fresh air into the roof/building space, it then mixes with the warmer air in the roof cavity and escapes through the ridge vent. This process is called natural ventilation and helps to regulate the temperature of your conservatory in summer. It also reduces reliance on the heating system in winter, saving energy and money.
It is important to use the correct vent size to allow for sufficient airflow and to comply with building regulations. Using a non-setting sealant is recommended (Sika 522 or Soudal butyrub).
Special roof vents have been installed in 19th century gate lodges at Tredegar House after evidence of protected whiskered bat guano was found. This conservation work is part of a wider scheme to refurbish the historic estate in Newport. The project is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The work will restore the buildings to their former glory and improve their thermal efficiency, allowing them to be used year round.
Often homeowners love their conservatory but find it unusable all year round because it’s too hot, too cold or too noisy. This can all be down to one element, the roof! When you replace your old glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof with a solid tiled conservatory roof, it will transform your extension into a cosy room that you can enjoy 365 days a year.
Tiled conservatory roofs come in a range of colours to suit the existing Cardiff home and can be colour-matched to replicate a traditional slate finish. This will help the conservatory blend in to the rest of the property and raise its value.
All our tiled conservatory roofs are LABC Approved. This means that they have passed rigorous testing to ensure that your new conservatory roof is compliant with building regulations across England, Wales and Scotland. This also makes the application process for planning permission faster and simpler. It’s also fully vented, preventing the build-up of condensation that can lead to damp patches and structural problems.
A replacement conservatory roof with a Leka system is the perfect solution for older conservatories that find themselves hot in the summer and cold in the winter. The solid construction is insulated like the roof on your house which means that you can enjoy your conservatory all year round with a more consistent temperate and reduce energy bills.
Leka systems use innovative methods, highly technical design protocols and enormous investment to create the world’s best conservatory roof insulation. They can be fitted to new and existing conservatories alike and will transform them into a room that you can genuinely enjoy all year round.
With composite slate and metal shingle concrete effect tiles available, a re-roof with a Leka system can be aesthetically pleasing and will look like a brand new conservatory. It is also more energy efficient and will help to reduce carbon footprints. All of our replacement conservatory roofs are built to comply with local authority building regulations (Jhai Building Control certification) so you won’t have any hassle in obtaining your planning permission. conservatory roofs south wales
