Best Conservatory Roof Replacement

If you’re thinking about replacing the roof of your conservatory, you might be wondering what the best conservatory roof replacement is. There are lots of different options to choose from, and each has its own pros and cons.

At Pure Conservatories, we favour the LEKA conservatory roof system. This is because of its high energy rating, durability and its ease of fitting.

In this article, we’ll talk you through the different options available when it comes to conservatory roof replacement. We’ll also tell you more about the LEKA conservatory roof system, including how it could reduce your energy bills and transform your conservatory into a room that you can use all year round.

Why Should You Change Your Conservatory Roof?

Older conservatory roofs were typically built from polycarbonate or glass and had a limited lifespan. This means that many older conservatories now require a roof replacement.

Some of the reasons that you might choose to replace your conservatory roof include:

What Are The Different Types Of Conservatory Roofs?

There are a number of different options available when it comes to conservatory roof replacement, and each has its own pros and cons. Here is a rundown of the most common types:

Glass Conservatory Roof

Glass roofs are very popular because they allow in lots of natural light into your conservatory. However, these roofs can be quite heavy which means they require a strong supporting structure. This can be expensive and time-consuming to install, and it’s important that your conservatory has been designed with the new roof in mind.

Glass roofs are available in different thicknesses, from 4mm up to 10mm thick. The thicker the glass roof is, the more energy efficient it will be.

Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof

Another popular option is a polycarbonate conservatory roof. The advantage of this type of roof is that it’s lightweight and durable – perfect for areas with strong winds as it won’t blow off in high winds.

The downside to using polycarbonate as a replacement roof is that it can become discoloured over time, and it doesn’t insulate your conservatory as well as other roofing materials.

Fibreglass Conservatory Roof

Fibreglass roofs are very similar to glass roofs, but they are less expensive and easier to maintain. They are also lighter than glass roofs, which makes them quick and easy to install. However, fibreglass roofs are only available in a maximum thickness of 4mm, which makes them less energy efficient.

Solid Conservatory Roof

Solid conservatory roofs are becoming a popular option, and there are many different options available. For example, the LEKA system is made from glass reinforced plastic (GRP), making it extremely lightweight, as well as being energy efficient.

Conservatory Roof Replacement Options

There are two main options for conservatory roof replacement:

  • Replacing your existing conservatory roof directly
  • Replacing your existing conservatory roof with a solid roof (for example LEKA)

Replacing your conservatory roof like-for-like is usually the cheapest option. This is the option that is often chosen to repair storm damage. However, it may not be the most cost-effective option in the long run, so it’s important to carefully consider your options.

Opting for a solid conservatory roof such as the LEKA system can vastly improve your energy efficiency, keeping your conservatory warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This means that you’ll be able to use your conservatory throughout the year.

Not only that, but a quality solid roof will last for many more years than a standard polycarbonate conservatory roof. This means that you won’t need to replace it for a longer time period, so you’re securing better value for money, as well as peace of mind.

The best option for conservatory roof replacement will depend on your individual circumstances and what you’re hoping to achieve, as well as your budget.

Pros And Cons Of Solid Conservatory Roofs

Upgrading your conservatory to a solid roof is an excellent option if you want to use your conservatory all year round. However, there are both pros and cons of installing a solid roof that you will need to weigh up before making your decision.

Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of solid conservatory roofs.

Advantages Of Solid Conservatory Roofs

  • They can drastically increase energy efficiency, keeping your conservatory warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Solid roofs such as LEKA are highly durable when compared to standard polycarbonate roofs. They also provide greater protection from strong winds and heavy rainfall, reducing damage caused by storms.
  • Reduce noise from rainfall or nearby roads.
  • Incorporate interior design features such as spotlights or roof lanterns.
  • Transform your conservatory into a usable room, all year round.

Disadvantages Of Solid Conservatory Roofs

  • Solid roofs can be more expensive than standard conservatory roofs. They are also heavier, meaning it may be more complex to install them.
  • They can also reduce natural light, as the roof is mainly plastered rather than being transparent.
  • Not all solid roofs are created equal, so it’s important to do your research when choosing a solid conservatory roof system.

Conservatory Roof Replacement: The Leading Solution

According to The Conservatory Association, the main priorities when looking for a conservatory roof solution should be UV reduction, visible glare reduction, insulation qualities, ventilation requirements and all-round comfort levels so that a conservatory can be used in all seasons. Unfortunately, both glass and polycarbonate lack in one or two areas of these ideal qualities, meaning that you have to make adjustments to correct them.

That’s why, at Pure Conservatories, we recommend the unique LEKA roof system. This is a tiled and plastered solid conservatory roof replacement which enables you to transform your conservatory into a functional and versatile room of your home that can be enjoyed all year round.

The LEKA roof system is a sturdy yet lightweight roof that will transform your old conservatory into a modern, energy-efficient environment. Not only that, but you’ll be able to use it all year round, no matter what the weather. You’ll notice that it remains cool and glare-free in the summer, warm and cosy during winter, and so quiet that you won’t have to worry about noise on the rainiest days.

Why Choose LEKA?

If this is the first time you’ve heard about the LEKA roof system, you might still be wondering whether this is the right choice for your conservatory. Here are some of the reasons why we think you should choose LEKA for your conservatory roof replacement.

Innovative And Modern

Glass and polycarbonate conservatory roofs have been used for many years and are often seen as the default option. However, they have many disadvantages, including poor energy efficiency and a comparatively short lifespan.

The LEKA system is a new, innovative and modern advancement in roofing materials. It combines the benefits of glass and polycarbonate roofs whilst overcoming their disadvantages. This is a conservatory roof system that has been designed to correct the disadvantages of the traditional conservatory roofing materials, transforming your conservatory into a versatile and usable space.

Energy Saving

The roof is the primary source of heat loss in the home, but you don’t have to worry about that with the LEKA roof system. With a U-value of 0.15 – the lowest in the market right now – the LEKA solid roof system has better heat preservation than polycarbonate and glass.

Whilst glass roofs are renowned for making your conservatory too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter, the LEKA system combats this. This is thanks to the solid roof that blocks out the heat radiation during summer, whilst its thermal insulation properties ensure that heat is conserved during winter. Add all these together, and it means you will be saving a ton on energy consumption and bills.

Noise Reduction

You may also have noticed that traditional conservatory roofs can be noisy. After all, it’s hard to miss the sound of rain hitting a glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof! This can make it difficult to relax in your conservatory.

The LEKA roof system helps to protect against external noise through sound insulation. This means that you can use your conservatory for reading, Zoom meetings or meditation, even on the rainiest of days.

Save Time And Money

Many people wonder whether it’s worth taking down their conservatory to build an extension. With the LEKA roof system, there’s no need to dismantle your conservatory – simply install a LEKA roof and you’ll discover a new versatile space in your home that you can enjoy all year round.

The LEKA roof system can be installed in as little as three days, depending on the size and shape of your conservatory. This makes it much quicker than extending your home, as well as most cost-effective.

Style And Aesthetics

There’s no reason why a conservatory roof replacement should be an eyesore. The LEKA system combines stylish design with modern technology to give you a distinctive, aesthetically-pleasing look for your conservatory.

The ceiling of your new conservatory will be plastered to match your home’s interior, while the exterior will be tiled to match your property. You can also choose to add internal features such as spotlights and roof lanterns to suit your tastes and style.

Built To Last

The Leka roof system is made to last, with a 40 year guarantee that gives you complete peace of mind. You can relax and enjoy your conservatory knowing that your new conservatory roof is in safe hands.

In Summary

Choosing a conservatory roof replacement can be a difficult decision – especially if you’ve been disappointed by other products in the past. The innovative LEKA system is different from its alternatives, which makes it a popular choice.

The solid roof provides a high level of insulation and noise reduction. It’s quick and easy to install and looks great too, with internal features that can match your style and decor. All these benefits combine to give you the beautiful, versatile living space you’ve always wanted – one that will last for years to come!
