When looking to improve and update your home, it is essential to consider whether these renovations will meet planning permissions. Glass conservatory roofs are perfectly okay as it used to be that a certain percentage of the roof had to be transparent or translucent.
Due to recent changes in building regulations, you may not need to apply for planning permission when installing a solid or tiled conservatory roof. However, we would advise that you should check with your local planning permission to see whether or not you can have a new conservatory roof fitted.
You may have neighbour consultation schemes which goes through your local planning council and allows your neighbours to raise objections within 21 days. If they don’t, your conservatory roof is good to go.
As stated before however, please check with your local planning council and building regulations to see if your home improvement project fits into their guidelines.
Benefits of a New Conservatory Roof
Are you looking for a way to save money on your energy bills? Why not consider a new conservatory roof. A lot of our heating is lost through insufficient insulation from either a polycarbonate roof or merely an old roofing system that requires replacement. Save money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint with one of our replacement conservatory roofs.
We understand the need to have a design that matches not only the aesthetics of your home but also one that reflects your personality. We as a company will guide you through the whole process of getting your new replacement roof. We have a wide range of colours and styles for you to choose from for all our styles – tiled, solid or glass.
Another excellent benefit of updating your conservatory roof is the fact that you will regain use of your conservatory. Gone are the days when it would be far too hot to use in the summer and bitterly cold to use in the winter. You will be able to use this new space as a study if you work from home often, or as a new living room or any other use, you can think of.
Improved Market Value
Whether you’re looking to have a solid, tiled or glass conservatory roof, you will be significantly improving the market value of your property. It is important to think about how prospective buyers may view your home. A thermally efficient conservatory can be the perfect way to boost the value without having to fork out a lot of money.
Conservatory Roof Styles
Tiled Conservatory Roof
This style is a unique and interesting way to update your conservatory without the traditional aesthetic. This style can come with optional glazing to brighten up your glass extension. However, you can opt for your roof to be fully tiled so you can guarantee your privacy.
This lightweight solution is more than easy to manoeuvre meaning that we won’t take long to install it. This will also save you money as we won’t need to be on site for very long.
Not only this but the lightweight design ensures that your existing foundations and frames will not experience extreme pressure.
This means that it will meet the strict requirements that come with planning permission and building regulations. However, please be sure to check with your local planning council to be 100% sure.
Solid Conservatory Roof
Our solid conservatory roofs may seem incredibly similar to our tiled offering. However, these two do differ. Our solid roof system allows us to install glazing wherever you want and in whatever shape or style.
This means that you can optimise how and where natural light floods into your home, beautifully illuminating your interior. You can make any area within your conservatory a fantastic feature; one that is sure to catch any guests’ eye.
Get in contact today to see whether solid conservatory roofs meet UK planning permissions.
Glass Conservatory Roof
For those looking to brighten their home to its fullest potential, look no further than our glass conservatory roof. Natural light will flood in and connect your home with the gorgeous British landscape.
As this roofing system can withstand wind speeds of up to 130mph, you can rest easy knowing that your glass extension has no weak points.
It is even possible to customise your glass roof by choosing from a wide range of colours that can come either painted or as foiled aluminium. You can be sure that your glass conservatory roof will look beautiful for many years to come — no fading or cracking colours in sight.
