FAQs

Here's some of our most frequently asked questions...

Will my existing conservatory be strong enough to hold a solid roof?

Solid roofs do not greatly differ in weight to a traditional conservatory roof and therefore nine out of ten window frames are suitable to carry the weight.

At point of order, our technical surveyor will visit your home to ensure that your existing frames are suitable.

Do your products come with any guarantee?

SolarFrame offer a minimum of a 10 year guarantee on all products. SolarFrame replacement roofs are engineered and manufactured to exacting standards and carry a guarantee of 10 years from date of installation.

How long does it take to build a conservatory?

This depends on various factors as all conservatories from SolarFrame are bespoke and made to each customer’s specifications.

Once you receive a quote from one of our designers, we will provide you with an estimated date for installation and can give you an idea of the duration.

How long will it take to install a solid tiled roof?

Typically, it would take 3 days to install a solid tiled roof for a standard sized 4×4 Edwardian conservatory. We pride ourselves on offering the assurance of having the old roof removed and new roof installed within one day, weather depending. Following the installation, the electrician and plasterer would need to visit to complete the job.
