5 Key Benefits Of Replacing Conservatory Roof


Are you living with a conservatory which is unfit for purpose or considering to build one?


Have you heard that replacement conservatory roofs can make your conservatory usable; perhaps you’ve heard of some of the other benefits too.

Here we take a look at the key benefits of replacement conservatory roofs, and specifically the Guardian Conservatory Roof.

Get a conservatory which is usable:

This is the key benefit, you have a conservatory which isn’t usable on the hottest days of the year that is unless you enjoy sitting in what is essentially a sauna.

The main flaw of conservatories is the roof – be it glass or polycarbonate as neither is fit for purpose.

A replacement conservatory roof replaces that with a solid, tiled roof and with this one change, the flaw of conservatories disappears.

The room becomes a pleasant temperature all-year round. No longer will the room be off-limits, or usable only as expensive storage. Instead, it will become the space you always hoped it would be.

A roof which blends in:

Let’s be honest, a glass or polycarbonate roof doesn’t exactly blend in with the rest of the house. At best, conservatories look acceptable, at worst they can be a bit of an eyesore.

However, the Guardian Roof comes in a full range of styles and colours, so whether it’s Victorian, Edwardian, lean-to or another style there is a replacement roof to match. The conservatory will look like a sympathetic extension rather than a bolt-on. You can visit our office or contact us for more specifications range.

Save on heating bills:

A replacement roof has the practical benefit of being far more thermo-efficient, this means it keeps the temperature down in the summer, but also keeps any warmth in during the winter.

Of course many people with a conservatory simply don’t bother using it in winter as the heating is too expensive, but with a replacement roof the heating burden is greatly reduced, independent research by AECON finding the savings amount to around £200 per year on a typical property.

With energy costs only going one way, these savings will grow further still.

Add value to your property:

Admittedly this one varies by postcode, property and the prevailing conditions in the housing market.

However, it is a truism that by upgrading to a replacement roof you are turning your flawed conservatory into what is effectively a sympathetic extension, and so this is work that adds value to the property.

Often, the work more than pays for itself, you can enjoy a conservatory which is now fit for purpose, and then, should you ever wish to sell, potentially more than recuperate the money spent.

A home improvement with almost no disruption:

Even a job as simple as a knock through between lounge and dining room typically takes around a week.

However, removing the old conservatory roof and installing the new solid, tiled roof take just three days on a typical installation.

We are not aware of other home improvements to have so profound an effect in so short a space of time or with so little disruption.
