A tiled conservatory roof allows you to create a space that feels like an extension of your home. It will add value to your property as well as provide numerous benefits including improved insulation and soundproofing. A solid conservatory roof can be added to any existing structure as long as it meets Building Regulations. It is a quick and easy way to transform your conservatory. Improved insulation Conservatories can be a relaxing and comfortable space to sit back in but, as they’re often made from polycarbonate sheeting, outside noise can echo around the room. This can be disruptive, particularly for homeowners who use their conservatory as a home office, and may also be uncomfortable on blustery or rainy days. A new tiled roof will provide significantly better insulation, keeping your conservatory warm in winter and cooler in summer. This will allow you to reduce your dependence on artificial heating techniques, saving energy and money. A solid conservatory roof will also offer greater privacy compared to a fully glazed structure, especially if you live on a busy street or overlook neighbouring properties. This feature can be further enhanced with the incorporation of roof windows and skylights, allowing you to enjoy natural light without losing valuable privacy. As a result, it can boost the overall energy efficiency of your property and add to its resale value. Reduced noise As they are so insulated, a tiled conservatory roof will prevent noise from entering the space. This is especially true for stormy weather, as the sound will not be able to get through like it would with a glass or polycarbonate roof. This can make a conservatory space feel more of an extension of the home, making it ideal for use as a relaxing room or an office. It also makes it easier to enjoy the space all year round, as the temperature will be much more controlled and cosy in the winter. Because of their solid design, tiled conservatory roofs allow slightly less natural light into a space than a glass or polycarbonate one. However, this can easily be mitigated by the inclusion of glazed roof lights. The Equinox roof system, for example, features a number of glazed panels in different sizes, allowing for light to enter the space whilst still providing market-leading insulation levels. Increased aesthetics Many UK homeowners struggle to make the most of their conservatories, wasting valuable space with a glass or polycarbonate roof that makes it too hot in Summer and cold in Winter. A Supalite tiled conservatory roof will solve this problem, offering a comfortable living space all year round. Using an insulated plasterboard, exterior PIR insulating board, a breathable membrane and tiles or slates, tiled conservatory roofs can achieve market-leading insulation levels. This will help to keep your home warmer, reduce condensation, cut your heating bills and lower your carbon footprint. In addition to the practical benefits, tiled conservatory roofs look beautiful too. Available in a range of colours, including black, brown and terracotta, homeowners can find a design that perfectly matches their existing property. This helps to give their conservatory a more permanent feel, increasing its kerb appeal and potentially adding value to the property in the process. To maintain a beautiful appearance, periodic cleaning to remove moss and debris is recommended. Easy maintenance When compared to polycarbonate roofs, tiled conservatory roofs are far easier to maintain. A regular inspection can help prevent the formation of moss and algae, which can cause leaks and dampness within the conservatory. This can be remedied by applying a fungicide to the surface of the tiles. A new tiled conservatory roof can instantly make the space more energy efficient, reducing heating costs and allowing homeowners to reduce their reliance on artificial methods of keeping warm. The improved insulation also helps to keep spaces cooler in the summer, making them ideal for use all year round. Whether you use your conservatory as a dining room, lounge or office, you can enjoy the benefits of a comfortable space all year round with a new tiled roof. Most local councils do not require planning permission to install a solid conservatory roof, provided that the space is kept separate from your home and does not have an opening into it.
