Should you upgrade your conservatory roof or consider a complete conservatory roof replacement
Fed up of the mould, noise and heat escaping from your conservatory roof, but aren’t sure if you should invest in a new conservatory roof replacement or simply upgrade?
Here at Warm Conservatory roofs, we explore the pros and cons of both options, helping you decide on the roof that’s right for you.
Conservatory roof solutions
Upgrading or replacing your conservatory roof will make an enormous difference to the overlook and feel of your home.
Whether you chose to replace, or upgrade will depend on lots of factors.
These include the size of your budget, whether you want to make any big changes to the style of your roof and how badly your roof is degraded or not fit for purpose.
Re-use your existing conservatory roof
If your budget won’t stretch to a completely new roof then re-using your current roof a brilliant option, which is virtually the same as a full replacement.
Potentially saving you hundreds of pounds, here we remove all polycarbonate or glass capping and as much of the plastic covers as possible.
This leaves us with your original roof, in its bare state, which is still as structurally sound as the day it was built, complete with compliance to British standards.
Bearing in mind that aluminium doesn’t rust or degrade, this is the perfect skeleton for your wonderful new roof.
We will then work with you to plan and install the perfect roof, incorporating the right shape, tiles and extras, like roof windows and LED lighting.

A conservatory roof replacement
In some cases, only a completely new conservatory roof replacement do.
If your original roof is damaged or you want to transform the look of your conservatory then consider having your roof being rebuilt in timber and then fully insulated.
Just like with re-using your existing roof, we will then work to integrate the exact look and feel that you want to achieve, whether that’s a laid back and modern lean-to, or a classic Edwardian or Victorian shape.
Do you need planning permission for a replacement of your conservatory roof?
Whatever option that you go for, you may be wondering whether you need planning permission to upgrade your conservatory roof.
Planning permission is not normally required for a replacement conservatory roof because it was originally obtained when the full structure was built, meaning the roof can be easily replaced.
If you are, however, replacing an existing conservatory roof with a solid roof rather than a glass or translucent roof, then a Building Regulation Application will be required.
More details can be found from the Local Authority Building Control for England and Wales or contact your local Building Control department to seek advice.
