The modular design of all three roof systems allows glass panels to be added in any configuration allowing natural light to flood the room.

You can create a stunning effect with downlighting LEDs, you can even add a sound system by integrating speakers into the ceiling pelmet.

When we install a replacement conservatory roof we overhaul the rest of the conservatory to create a room that looks brand new. Maybe you are at the planning stage – if that’s the case a conservatory roof conversion which is also suitable for house extensions is perfect.
Solid Roofs Building Regulations
If you are considering a solid roof replacement, it is important to check that your proposed conservatory replacement roof system complies with Building Regulations. Our GRP Warm Roofs, Ultraroof and Livinroof conservatory roofs all come under the solid roof category, and as such, they will need to comply with building regulations.
Best Glaze can help you with your design and liaise with the local authority to get Building Regulations approval should they be required.
The Department for Communities and Local Government, state that in order to avoid needing building regulations a conservatory must comply with:
• The structure must be at ground level.
• The floor area cannot exceed 30 m².
• The glass used needs to comply with Parts K4, K 5.1, K 5.2, K 5.3 and K 5.4 of Schedule 1.
• The conservatory must be “thermally separate” from the rest of the building i.e, external doors seperate the conservatory from the rest of your house.
• The conservatory must have standalone heating seperate from the house.
• The correct amount of glazing is required to be considered a conservatory
