Conservatory Roof Replacement Costs and Grants
I have just had the leaky polycarbonate roof replaced by Jay and his excellent team on my 15 year old conservatory. I chose the Ultraroof system and their brochures don’t lie, it has made such an improvement! Customer liaison was excellent and Jay is always available to discuss minor adjustments to the plan as they developed. I would recommend Best Glaze without question; you won’t be disappointed!

The Benefits Of A Conservatory Roof Replacement
A conservatory roof may suffer from problems as it gets older. Leaks, mould and condensation are common. If this sounds like your conservatory, then a conservatory repair or a conservatory roof replacement can transform your conservatory into a beautiful room at much less cost than a completely new build. A conservatory roof replacement can save money on heating bills whilst also adding value to your home in Cornwall. Make your conservatory or orangery more comfortable, attractive, and valuable with a new roof.
Older conservatories are usually not very thermally efficient because they use polycarbonate roofs. These are notorious for allowing heat to escape and costing money on energy bills. Our conservatory roof replacement options have amazing thermal efficiency thanks to the built-in insulation and thermally broken design. Replacing your conservatory roof with a new solid conservatory roof design can make your conservatory a warmer room in the winter, a cooler room in the summer, and a more valuable part of your home.

Is it worth replacing a conservatory roof?
A conservatory roof replacement is absolutely worth the expenditure. A conservatory adds at least 5% to the value of your property. Keeping your conservatory in excellent condition protects this investment.
Older polycarbonate or glass roofs are simply not fit for purpose. Older conservatories struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature. They are often too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Because older conservatory roofs are poor at regulating temperature, secondary issues may arise such as dampness because of condensation, mould, twisting frames, or slipping panels that cause leaks.
A replacement conservatory roof will totally transform a tired old conservatory into a useable living space, add value to your home, and save you money on energy bills.
