3 Signs That It's Time To Buy A Solid Roof


Does your conservatory or orangery need a roof upgrade? If you’re not using your living space at certain times of the year, it could be time to take action.

Replacement Roof Solutions

Planet can replace your current glass roof with a solid tiled roof, quickly and efficiently transforming the usability of your space.

There are some clear signs it may be time to invest in a solid roof from Planet:

Your living space is overheating in summer

Summer should be the ideal time to enjoy your conservatory or orangery. With extended daylight hours, it’s the perfect place to relax in the evenings and on weekends.

However, for homeowners with an ageing, glass roof on their living space, it can be too unbearably hot to sit inside on sunny days.

Replacing a current glass roof with a thermally efficient solid roof will ensure homeowners can make the most out of their conservatory or orangery all summer long. Just as it should be.

You experience draughts during winter

If you avoid sitting in your living space during the coldest months of the year, it could be another clue to the poor thermal efficiency of the roof.

Energy bills are always expected to be higher in winter, especially due to the rising energy price cap, but rising bills could also be a sign that you should replace your ageing glass roof.

An energy-efficient replacement roof will ensure your living space remains comfortably warm all winter, in addition to potentially saving you money.

You are constantly disturbed by the sound of rain

It rains a lot in Cumbria, and that’s a big factor in why we have such beautiful scenery around us. If your conservatory is too loud at times of high rainfall, you probably aren’t making the most out of your space.

The sound of rain can be particularly loud on outdated polycarbonate roofs, and the solution is a replacement solid roof.

A solid roof would reduce the noise you hear, ensuring your space stays feeling calm and tranquil at all times.

Upon installation of a solid roof, it’s likely you will experience a reduction in natural light but this can be rectified by fitting roof windows.
