Conservatories have long been a popular addition to British homes, providing a peaceful spot to enjoy the outdoor views while protecting against harsh weather. As homeowners seek to increase the practicality and comfort of their conservatories, many are considering replacing the usual glass or solid roofs with tiled roofs.

Will I need new Windows and Doors Fitted Along With A Tiled Roof?

While new windows and doors are not necessary to be retrofitted to a conservatory with a tiled roof, if your conservatory’s windows and doors are quite old, you might not get the full benefits of your new roof. This is because outdated windows and doors are unlikely to be energy efficient, which will limit the tile roof’s insulation benefits. 

When choosing Castle Conservatories for your tiled roof replacement, we will recommend the best solution for your property.

Understanding Tiled Conservatory Roofs

Tiled conservatory roofs have gained popularity in recent years due to their greater thermal performance, increased durability, and visual appeal. Compared to standard roofing materials like glass or solid roofs, tiled roofs provide higher insulation, helping to moderate extreme temperatures and reduce energy usage throughout the year. 

Castle Conservatories understands the value of providing a space that can be enjoyed all year around, which is why we provide bespoke solutions for tiled conservatory roofs. Castle Conservatories can design a tiled roof solution to match your requirements, whether you want to make your conservatory an inviting shelter in the winter or a refreshing place in the summer.

Benefits of Tiled Conservatory Roofs

There are several advantages of using tiled roofs for your conservatory:

Thermal Efficiency

Compared to standard roofing materials, tiled roofs provide excellent insulation, allowing you to keep your conservatory at a suitable temperature all year. This can lead to savings on your energy bills. 


Tiled roofs are extremely strong and durable, requiring very little maintenance over their lifetime. Castle Conservatories provides a wide range of high quality roofing tiles in a variety of shapes and colours to fit the design of your home.

Privacy and Sound Insulation

Tiled roofs provide excellent privacy and sound insulation compared to clear and translucent roofing materials, ensuring quiet and peace in your conservatory, regardless of the exterior noise levels. 


Castle Conservatories offers a variety of customisation choices for tiled conservatory roofs, allowing you to select the ideal combination of tiles, colours and finishes to complement your home architecture.

Will Changing My Conservatory Roof To Tiles Require Planning Permission?

It’s unlikely that you’ll need planning permission to change the roof of your conservatory. Regardless of design, homeowners can enjoy the benefits of a tiled roof replacement without having to deal with the standard planning permission issues. We understand that these governmental laws are in place for safety and environmental reasons and we are happy to work with local council authorities as needed. However we strongly believe that tiled roof replacements should only be required on rare cases.
