A tiled conservatory roofs can give your home a beautiful new look and transform it into a more usable space that will increase its value. A tiled conservatory roof is also less expensive and quicker to install than a new conservatory or an extension.
The traditional conservatory is made up of transparent glazed panels that can be either metal-framed or uPVC. These are a great choice for budgeting purposes but don’t offer the same insulation as a solid roof.
Choosing the right type of replacement conservatory roof can be tricky, especially when you’re not sure which is best for your property. A few things to consider include the style of your home, what you want to get out of a conservatory and whether or not it’s worth the investment.
Glass and Polycarbonate Roofs
If you’re looking for a lightweight alternative to a solid conservatory roof, a polycarbonate roof can be a great option. These are available in a range of colours and styles to suit the design of your home. They’re also incredibly thermally efficient and are 200x stronger than glass.
These are cheaper than a solid conservatory roof and will last longer too, often up to 20 years or more. They’re also easier to maintain, with a lot fewer maintenance problems than a tiled roof.
They’re very easy to install, too, and can be done in just a few days. They’re designed to fit on top of your existing window frames, without putting them under too much strain, so you can start using your new room sooner.
You’ll also need to apply for building regulations approval from your local council before you can install a solid tiled conservatory roof. This will involve a survey of your home, to make sure that your conservatory is suitable for the weight of a solid tiled roof and complies with building regulations.
How long will a tiled conservatory roof take to install?

There are many different tiling options available, including Tapco Slate and Extralight. Both are very durable and come in a wide range of colour options. They can be painted to match the colour of your home or left natural for a more rustic aesthetic.
They’re also a good choice for boosting natural light intake into your conservatory. However, they will allow less light in than a solid roof, so you’ll need to think about getting glazed roof lights for this reason.
You can also add skylights to a solid roof if you’re looking to let in as much light as possible. This is especially useful if your property is situated in a very sunny area, as they will help to reduce heat loss from the roof.
There are many other benefits to a solid tiled conservatory roof, too. They’re insulated so they can be kept warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, making them an extremely valuable addition to any home. They’re also incredibly energy efficient, so you can save money on your heating bills as well. They’re also very quiet, and can even be fitted with a number of different features like Velux windows or roof lights to increase ventilation in your conservatory.
