Don’t buy a replacement conservatory roof until you’ve read this!
With homeowners realising the benefits of replacing their original polycarbonate or glass roof, such as the conservatory becoming a more comfortable and usable space, and feeling like a true extension of the home. However, it is vital to make the right choice when it comes to deciding which conservatory roof system to go with in order to access these benefits long-term.
Choose a quality replacement roof
Unfortunately, there are several conservatory roof installers out there who offer cheap clad over roof systems. This usually means they are not actually replacing your conservatory roof, but are (as the name suggests) cladding over your original conservatory roof with a mixture of timber, tiles, plasterboard and an insulation material. Although the roof may initially look good quality, this shoddy method can lead to disastrous consequences down the line, as a conservatory frame just isn’t strong enough to bear the weight of what are essentially two roofs.
However, there are precautions you can take to confirm that you are choosing a suitable, safe and excellent quality replacement roof. Before you decide on which installer and system to go with, ensure you’ve asked these crucial questions…
