Transform an old extension or create a brand new one

Our roofing options are suitable for fitting to new conservatories, orangeries, and other types of home extension. However, it’s also possible for them to be retrofitted to existing structures, and this can be an excellent way to transform a tired extension into a year-round usable space. However, as each of them has such differing characteristics, it’s important to learn more about which is right for you.

For example, because they have more glazing, glass roofs let in more natural light than tiled roofs. Tiled roofs, however, have internal ceilings that can be fitted with recessed lighting. Working with our friendly team of expert designers, you can tell us what you’re hoping to achieve for your home and we’ll work with you to determine the best way of achieving it.


What is the best material for a conservatory roof?

Glass is still a popular option for conservatory roofs because it creates an airy and bright environment. However, it is commonly thought that glass conservatories are not very thermally efficient. Well, advances in glazing technology mean not only are modern glass conservatories aesthetically pleasing but they are also very thermally efficient and can help prevent heat loss.  Tiled conservatory roofs, however, give your home a completely different aesthetic. They make your conservatory look like more of a traditional home extension! Expected to last around 50 years, the solid tiling used on our roofs ensures excellent thermal performance, ensuring you can use your extended space all year round!

So to answer the question, the best material will be down to personal preferences as all our roof options are high performing choices. With superior energy-efficiency and durability, both our glass and tiled roofs are sound investments.
