How Much Is A Conservatory Roof Conversion?

Conservatories have become very popular in the United Kingdom in recent years.  If you do it right, your conservatory will be an extension to your house, and you’ll get a room you can use all year round.

Unfortunately for most homeowners, this is far from the case, leaving an expensive white elephant, that requires additional sources to heat it.

The majority of conservatories are built with a glass or polycarbonate roof; one which does not allow adequate temperature regulation. So how can you combat this challenge?

In this article, we’ll take a look at both options in greater detail. Many of you are certainly in the situation where you have a UPVC conservatory, and you want to replace the roof with something better and more efficient.

A conservatory roof conversion will help you reduce rain noise, keep out the sun, keep out the heat, and reduce heat gain and heat loss.

Why Invest In A New Conservatory Roof?

Before we get to the prices, and the cost of a conservatory roof conversion, we’ll start by exploring the reasons why should people invest in a conservatory roof in the first place.

There are a number of things you can improve in your home, and we want to stress that you should not forget the conservatory.

Most people build and decorate their conservatory, and leave it as it is. Traditional conservatories are built with a glass or polycarbonate roof, which is one of the reasons why you cannot fully enjoy your conservatory.

Conservatories with glass or polycarbonate roofs are hot in the Summer, and freezing cold in Winter. With little to no hassle, you can hire a professional contractor that will transform your conservatory just by working on your roof.

There are two main options: you can replace the roof, or install insulation. We will look at both options. But first, here are the benefits of a new conservatory roof:

  • Your conservatory becomes energy efficient, allowing you to regulate temperature easier. The roof helps you maintain a comfortable temperature, one that is not too hot in the Summer, and not too cold in the Winter
  • Now that your conservatory is more energy efficient, your energy bills are lower. You can save money in the long run, and use the money for some other investment in your home
  • A conservatory that has insulation is easier to maintain. Solid roofs requires little maintenance.

When you add insulation, you will prevent heat gain during Summer, as well as heat loss during Winter. We’ve adapted and adjusted the same NASA system to provide a shockingly good solution to ensuring year round conservatory comfort, so that every homeowner can afford it!

Average Prices of Tiled Conservatory Roofs

If you have a conservatory with a polycarbonate or glass roof, one of your options is to replace it with a tiled roof. To understand the true cost of a conservatory roof conversion, let’s take a look at the average prices of tiled conservatory roofs:

  • Lean-to conservatory roof prices start at £2000 for 2.5 x 3m room, and go up to £3000 for a glass roof for 3 x 3.5m room
  • Victorian conservatory roof prices start at £3000 for 3 x 3m room, and can go as high as £7000 for 5 x 5m room
  • Edwardian conservatory roof prices start at £3000 for 3 x 3 room, and can go as high as £8000 for 5 x 5m room
  • Gable fronted conservatory roof prices start at £3500 for 3 x 3m room, and can go as high as £8000 for 5 x 5m room
  • Double hipped conservatory roof prices start at £4000 for 3 x 3m room, and can go as high as £8000 for a 5 x 5m room

Why Home Logic Conservatory Roof Insulation Does It Better

The best way to turn your conservatory into a habitable room is to add insulation. We cannot give you an exact answer to the question how much is a conservatory roof conversion, because it depends on so many different factors.

But if cost is the crux of the matter, insulation is a much better option than replacing the entire roof. But what’s the very best time on offer?

The insulation we recommend adapts a system used by NASA for the Apollo missions. Back then, NASA used this reflective foil insulation system to protect spaceships from the extreme temperature of outer space.

When you add insulation, you will prevent heat gain during Summer, as well as heat loss during Winter. We’ve adapted and adjusted the same NASA system, so that every homeowner can afford it. So what does the system include?

The insulation system is made out of six layers, with the first two, and last two, exactly the same.

The first layer is a true aluminum foil layer,comprising of lightweight material that can deflect 90% of radiant heat.

The second and the fifth layer is a ThermoWadding membrane, which is basically a layer with pockets of air that prevent conduction.

The third layer is a metabolised poly foil barrier, that basically serves as another heat barrier.

The fourth layer is a vapour control foam membrane, with the sole purpose of protecting your conservatory against condensation and damp.
