Add space, add value...
Solicon Conservatory Roofs can help replace your existing glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof, and install a solid warm roof to create an extra functional space to use all year round – maintenance free!
Imagine how much heat you are losing through your roof? Our Solicon conservatory roofs can save up to 97% of the heat loss, which will help you save money on your heating bills during winter.
Conservatories are renowned for being too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter. Replacing your conservatory roof with an insulated, tiled and solid roof helps keep interior climates balanced.
Reduce glare from the sun, harmful UV rays, and even noise from the elements including wind and rain will be reduced – enabling you to relax with a book, or watch television with no distractions.
Lots of our customers transform their conservatory into an extra room suited to any purpose – from a dining room or sitting room to a kitchen or games room.
The Transformation Process Explained
During the transformation process that we provide at Solicon Conservatory Roofs, on most occasions we retain the structural rafters of the existing roof. If there are any issues with the integrity of the unit, then the whole roof will be replaced, and remodelled with timber ring beam and full rafter system.
The glass or polycarbonate roofing panels are removed and recycled. In the space created we install a solid PIR (Polyisocyanurate) slab insulation either Quinn or Celotex brand, once secured in place a tanalised timber batten is secured under the rafter to which we attach the 40 mm Superquilt insulation blanket.
This is constructed of 19 layers of lightweight heat reflective multifoil, which is fireproof, BBA approved, NHBC and LABC certificated to give our customers both exceptional performance and total peace of mind. This is then cross battened again which increases the structural integrity of the roof and allows an air space between layers for air circulation which will prevent any condensation.
On this last batten we then secure the internal ceiling which can be in light reflecting UPVC tongue and groove panels or plasterboard and plastered. Externally the rafters are cover in an external OSB (oriented strand board) , breather membrane and the covered with our top quality Tapco tiles in a colour of choice.
The final touch is a new PVC fascia board to acommodate the additional depth, rainwater goods, lead flashing to all joints. Internally there remains a choice of mood LED lighting and the option of Velux opening windows.
Our installed roofs are built up layer upon layer, from the inside skin to the finished exterior tiled surface, with as many as nine layers,* which is why we can achieve outstanding U-Values on the finished product – as low as .13W/m2K, if desired.
To help you understand all this confusing jargon, the standard of .18W/m2K is twice as efficient as a cavity brick wall (.35W/m2K), so as you can see, our insulated warmroofs are incredibly efficient at both retaining and reflecting heat, therefore keeping you cool in summer, and warm in winter.
