Any home would be better off with a conservatory. Most conservatory owners discover, however, that their all-year family room is not an all-glass or polycarbonate structure. In Summer, a standard conservatory roof can be unbearably hot; in Winter, it can be unbearably cold. A standard roof would be too good for those who hoped to ‘bring the elements inside’. In strong sunlight and heavy rain, their conservatory is full of glare and noise. There is a simple solution to these problems: switch to a fully insulated tiled conservatory roof. This is what we do at SureSeal. We convert old conservatory roofs into insulated, solid roofs. The right conservatory roof will keep you cool in Summer, warm in Winter, and reduce weather noise and glare dramatically. The result give your conservatory and new lease of life with year round usage conservatory conversions conservatory roof conversion Conservatory Roof Conversion design & fit
A tiled roof can offer better insulation for your conservatory. The tiled material has a lower U-value, meaning heat transmits through it at a much lower rate. So all that rising heat in your home is going nowhere, while the heat from the sun is staying outdoors.
This of course makes your conservatory more energy efficient and reduces your heating bills, but it also helps to create a space that is usable and high-performing all year round! With a tiled conservatory roof, there’s no more sweltering in the summer or freezing in the winter.
Is your conservatory at risk of being damaged by the weather? Conservatories with solid roofs are able to keep their contents dry and usable throughout the year, regardless of the weather conditions. It is our goal to provide strong roofs that can withstand harsh weather conditions and have passed building regulations. Using a solid conservatory roof will enable you to take advantage of your conservatory year round, no matter what the weather is like. No matter what happens, your conservatory will be dry and warm – it doesn’t matter if it rains or snows.
How many times have you been in a home with a conservatory and heard rain thundering down onto the roof? You can barely think above the noise, let alone relax. Luckily, tiled roofs insulate noise as well as they insulate heat. SureSeal offer conservatory tile roofs made from standard lightweight steel, authentic GRP sheet slate, and hardy composite materials, all of which absorb sound excellently. So now you can enjoy your upgraded conservatory in peace and quiet.
If your conservatory is badly insulated or prone to leaking, then it can actually take value off your property. The higher performance of a tiled conservatory roof can make your conservatory a more viable living space, thereby increasing its market value. So, when the time comes for you to sell up, your conservatory will work in your favour rather than hold you back!
With a badly installed glass roof, there is always the risk of leaks, as there are multiple frames and panels that can potentially faulter. In fact, on many glass-roofed conservatories, the rubber gasket deteriorates in just 10 years. Many polycarbonate roofs also stop being watertight after a decade. A leaking conservatory can lead to all sorts of problems, from ruined furniture, to spreading mould, to the complete collapse of the roof.
One of the greatest risks associated with outdated transparent conservatory roofs is harsh glare and strong rays from the sun piercing through the glass. Strong glares in small doses can be distracting, but extended exposure can be very damaging for your eyes.
With a tiled conservatory roof, any risk of glare is eliminated. You can sit back and relax, sheltered from the sun on even the brightest of days.
