Site Assessment and Preparation
Before commencing the installation, our team will conduct a thorough site assessment of your existing conservatory structure. We’ll take the time to understand your specific requirements and preferences, ensuring a seamless fit and integration with your current setup. Whether it’s a tiled or flat roof design, our experts will plan the installation process accordingly.
Once the assessment is complete, we’ll prepare the site for the installation. This includes clearing the area, protecting your furniture and delicate items, and erecting temporary barriers or screens to minimize dust and debris in your living space. Our meticulous attention to detail guarantees a clean and organized work environment, creating a stress-free experience for you throughout the installation process.
Removal of Existing Roof
If you currently have a conservatory roof in place, our skilled installation team will carefully remove it before proceeding. We understand the importance of precision and care to avoid any damage to the structure or surrounding elements. Rest assured that we will handle the removal process responsibly, adhering to environmentally friendly practices. Our goal is to ensure a seamless transition from your existing roof to the new tiled conservatory roof of your choice, be it an Edwardian, Victorian, or flat roof design.
Installation of Structural Framework
To provide support and stability for your tiled conservatory roof, our team will begin by erecting the necessary structural framework. Depending on your specific requirements, we will install lightweight and durable materials such as timber or aluminium. Our expertise extends to various conservatory roof styles, ensuring that the framework aligns perfectly with the chosen design, whether it’s an Edwardian, Victorian, or flat roof.
We take great care to position and securely fasten the framework to your existing conservatory structure. This step is vital in establishing a solid foundation for your new tiled roof. With our attention to detail and commitment to excellence, you can trust us to create a structurally sound and visually stunning roof for your conservatory.
Insulation and Breathable Membrane
To maximize energy efficiency and create a comfortable living space, our next step involves installing insulation and a breathable membrane. Our team will expertly install the insulation material, ensuring complete coverage and a snug fit. This layer helps regulate temperature, keeping your conservatory warm in winter and cool in summer.
We also incorporate a breathable membrane into the installation process. This membrane allows for proper ventilation, preventing condensation and maintaining a healthy indoor environment. It allows moisture to escape while effectively preventing the ingress of water, ensuring your conservatory remains a comfortable and enjoyable space year-round.
Placement of Roof Tiles
Now comes the exciting part—installing the roof tiles that will give your conservatory a stylish and durable finish. The installation team will expertly position each tile, interlocking them to create a secure and weather-resistant roof. They will take great care to maintain a uniform appearance and align the tiles properly.
We provide lightweight synthetic slate specially designed for conservatory roofs called Tapco slate. It is an excellent option for our customers and has several benefits some of which are:
- Lightweight: Tapco Slate is much lighter than natural slate, making it easier to handle and install. This can save on labour costs and make the roof more accessible for maintenance.
- Durable: Tapco Slate is very durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions. It is also resistant to cracking, delaminating, and fading.
- Low-maintenance: Tapco Slate is a low-maintenance roofing material that requires little upkeep. It is not necessary to seal or paint Tapco Slate, and it can last for many years without needing to be replaced.
Finishing Touches and Quality Checks
With the tiles in place, the installation team will focus on the finishing touches. They will add ridge tiles, fascias, and soffits to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your tiled conservatory roof. These elements provide a polished and seamless look while ensuring proper ventilation and weather protection.
Following the completion of the installation, the team will conduct a series of quality checks. This includes inspecting the new roof to ensure everything is as it should be.
