Internal pelmets are a fantastic way of adding insulation to a conservatory and a great feature where downlighting and even speakers can be placed.

A solid roof is an ultimate way to revamp your conservatory especially when you choose the Livinroof replacement conservatory roof which is a hybrid solid roof. Livinroof offers homeowners flexibility through design, glass roof panels can be put anywhere in the roof system along with solid aluminium insulated panels to create a contemporary looking conservatory externally.
The Livinroof is perfect for conservatory roof replacements due to only weighing 31kg/m2. This is one of the lightest solid conservatory roofs on the market with a weight about the same as a glass roof of a similar size, it is lighter than other solid roofs. This is why it can sit on the original window frames with no issues, however, we do carry out a full survey to ensure that the windows are structurally sound.
Inside, the Livinroof creates beautiful vaulted ceilings with a plaster finish. The shaped glass panels create an attractive focal point and allow natural light to enter the room exactly where needed.

The Ultraroof stands out from the crowd of solid roofs due to its amazing integral strength which is why the Ultraroof can be configured into any shape or style and will not ever need tiebars to maintain its shape. Another unique feature that this conservatory roof system has is a built-in 380mm pelmet on the eaves beam which sits around the perimeter of the window frames.
Inside beautiful vaulted ceilings with a plastered finish, LED downlighters in the ceiling or around the pelmet create a stunning space that is more like a modern extension than a revamped conservatory. This super thermally efficient replacement conservatory roof will create a safe, secure and cosy room that can be enjoyed the whole year-round.
Full-length glazing panels can be installed on the Ultraroof or Velux windows if you prefer an opening window in the roof. Full-length glazing panels not only look amazing from inside and out creating a focal point, but you will also have total control over the design of the roof and how and where natural light enters the living space. Ultraroof also meets fire regulations – B-roof, according to EN 13501-5:2016; and AC, according to BS476-3:2004.
Upgrade the glazing:
It’s no secret that older conservatories are not very energy efficient which is why you are probably thinking about revamping your conservatory right? If your old conservatory fluctuates in temperature it is most likely because of the roof, if your conservatory roof is not thermally efficient or is leaking, replacing the conservatory roof is one way of making it thermally efficient, the other option is replacing the glass panels to increase the thermal performance and lifespan of the conservatory.
Modern technological advances in glazing mean that new glass panels perform much better than older glass, modern glazing is able to regulate temperature by retaining heat and reflecting the suns harmful UV rays and heat away from the roof, much more effectively than panels installed years ago. Replacement glass panels can improve thermal efficiency by up to 33% – which could save you money on your energy bills and provide you with a room that can be enjoyed no matter what the weather or season.
Make your home flow into the garden:
Another way to revamp your conservatory is with a new set of doors such as bi-folds or full glass sliding doors allowing you to bring the outdoors indoors, perfect for entertaining during the warm summer months.
Not only does adding a set of feature doors like bi-folds revamp your conservatory and give it a new lease of life, it completely changes the dynamic of the room and the way it’s used. By opening up the space between your conservatory and garden you will make the whole lower floor feel so much bigger and brighter, whilst creating a new area to spend time with the family, a place to entertain and chill.
Refurnish your conservatory for summer:
The simplest way to revamp your conservatory is with new furnishings for summer. Choose conservatory furniture which creates space, light and adds bright, vivid colour to the room, large bulky and dark furniture can make the room feel dark and gloomy and may also be subject to fading. You can, however, prevent conservatory furniture from fading by replacing the glass with high-performance glass which has a built-in a UV filter.
