Lightweight Conservatory Roof Replacement Cost

When considering a lightweight conservatory roof replacement cost, planning permission and disruption must all be considered.

It’s not an easy or a quick job having your conservatory roof replaced, and you need something lightweight so that the existing frame and structure can support it.

Here, we list out some of the considerations you need to make in purchasing a lightweight roof replacement for your conservatory...

Cost Of Installation

When you shop for a lightweight conservatory roof replacement, cost will likely be your main consideration.

You’ll have to pay for materials, installation and a builder’s fee, and could easily be looking at upwards of £20,000 – which may well be more expensive than your conservatory was to be installed to begin with! It may be worth you having your existing conservatory torn down, and a new one built altogether.

Home Logic Conservatory Insulation can form an effective lightweight roof at up to 50% of the cost of having a full roof replacement.

When buying a lightweight roof replacement for your conservatory, you will need to consult with your local council, authority or parish, to investigate any permissions you may need, admin you may have to complete, or regulations you may need to adhere to!

Planning Permission and Building Regulations

A lightweight conservatory roof may require additional planning permission, even if you already have a conservatory in place.

Building regulations and permission depend on the local authority in which you live, and the percentage of the building that will be converted from glass to opaque material. In some cases, this could change the legal status of the room from a conservatory.

As Home Logic Conservatory Insulation is applied onto your existing roof on the interior of the conservatory, no planning permission is required in any locale and there’s no lengthy admin to complete – always a bonus!

Disruption To Your Conservatory Usage

Dependent on what type of conservatory roof replacement you purchase, it may be that your conservatory is out of use for days or weeks, as a team of builders take down and remove your existing conservatory roof, before installing a new one.

There may also be a ‘cooling off’ period for building materials and chemicals to settle once it’s been fitted, wherein you can’t use the room for a day or two.

In contrast, Home Logic Conservatory Insulation can be installed within just a few hours and once the technicians have cleaned up after themselves, you can start using the room again right away. There’s no chemicals to dry and no building material to ‘settle’.

Heating And Cooling Costs

Your roof may be replaced with something new, but does it have a tangible impact on the comfort levels of your conservatory? Southern-facing conservatories are still prone to overheating, and in the UK, all conservatories are likely to get cold in the Winter.

This means that if you wish to use your conservatory in all seasons, the room will need to be heated and cooled to keep it comfortable enough to use all year round.

The Risk Of Damp

Whilst conservatories with glass roofs can be difficult to clean, they don’t tend to carry the direct risk of damp setting in compared to those with solid roofs (lightweight or otherwise). Glass roof conservatories will impose an indirect risk of damp in a form of a condensation problem.

There is no risk of condensation or damp with Home Logic Conservatory Insulation: it forms an effective barrier against not just liquid such as rain but any residual moisture in the air that may try to pass through the conservatory.
