Can you put a solid roof on an existing conservatory?

In short, yes. You can put a solid roof onto an existing conservatory.  

This is called a ‘retrofit’ within the industry and is becoming increasingly popular amongst homeowners who have older conservatories and are looking to upgrade (as well as add value to their home).

It could be that your existing polycarbonate roof is leaking or that it’s just starting to look dated. Another common complaint of older conservatories is that they are ‘too cold in winter’ and ‘too warm in the summer’.

A solid tiled roof will eliminate all these issues, making the room an ‘all year round’ room

The other benefit of a solid roof is that it looks more like an extension than a traditional conservatory. A solid roof can give your conservatory a whole new lease of life and make a vast improvement to the external appearance of your home.

With a choice of lightweight tiles in different colours, you can ensure the new roof blends in with your home.

Things to consider when choosing a solid tiled roof

Although installing a solid roof can improve the energy efficiency of your conservatory, if the frames, windows and doors are old and inefficient, you might not get the full benefits of your new roof.

A reliable installer will send out a surveyor out to check that your existing frames are suitable. It’s not a problem if they aren’t, they can easily be replaced ready for your new roof. Whilst this is an additional cost it will benefit you in the long run.
