What is a Solid Conservatory Roof?

At its most simple, a solid conservatory roof is any roof that isn’t made of glass panels or polycarbonate and is finished with either tiles or a solid surface instead. Filled with insulation, solid conservatory roofs provide excellent levels of thermal efficiency, weather resistance and durability, but systems can vary and perform at different levels.

Crunching the Numbers

So, what exactly do we compare when it comes to solid conservatory roofs?

Well, we compare many of the most important aspects of replacement conservatory roofs. Here are a few things we consider:

Conservatory Roof Replacement


"What's that?" You may be asking, but don’t worry. While the name is cryptic, U-values are actually very easy to understand. U-values measure the transfer of heat from your home, a fancy way of saying how much heat stays in or leaves. Basically, the lower the number, the more consistent a temperature your conservatory space will be.

Glass or polycarbonate conservatories, for example, had U-values around 1.5 - 1.8, but the solid roofs that we compare are almost ten times more energy efficient with U-values of between 0.13 and 0.18. If you choose a solid conservatory roof with the lowest U-value, you’re ensuring your space will be usable all year round, avoiding sweltering heat in the summer and freezing in winter.

Tiled Conservatory Roofs


When it comes to solid conservatory roofs, lighter is better if you're looking to replace an existing conservatory roof. The lighter the conservatory roof, the less weight will be put on your existing frames, making for a stronger, safer conservatory space. Light doesn’t mean weak either; in fact, far from it! Some of the lightest conservatory roofs are also the strongest, ensuring years of enjoyment from your new conservatory.

If you’re replacing any conservatory roof, you must check your window frames and foundations' quality. First, check with your installer that they are confident that the frames will support the new additional weight. For reference, a glass roof will typically weigh 30kg/m², and the solid roofs on our site vary between 31 and 67kg/m².

Installation Time

You’re now looking at as little as days for your new solid conservatory roof to be up and running. In fact, some of our solid conservatory roofs can be fitted in as little as two days! That means in the space of a weekend; you could have a whole new conservatory roof for your home!

More importantly, some of the best solid conservatory roofs can be watertight at the end of day one, ensuring your conservatory is suitably protected as soon as possible. A quicker installation time will mean less time where your conservatory is exposed to the elements.

With a lower pitch, you ensure your conservatory roof isn't going to affect your sightlines and home's windows, particularly modern homes with lower ceilings.
