Why re-roofing your conservatory may cost less than you think
Have you moved into a house with a conservatory which hasn’t been well maintained?
If this is the case, you’re probably all too aware of the problems that a poorly maintained conservatory can face. Blown double glazing panels with moisture inside. Leaks which cause damage. Draughts which make the conservatory unbearably cold. The list is so long that you may well consider just having it torn down.
However, you may be surprised to find that re-roofing your conservatory is a much wiser choice.
Here are three reasons why:
A properly insulated solid roof conservatory can be hugely energy efficient and can actually save you money on your bills in the long run. This is because it allows less heat to escape, which helps to raise the temperature of your whole property. With energy prices at an all-time high - and rising - now is the time to plug those leaks.
Whether you’ve got carpet, wood or another type of floor in your conservatory, a leaky roof is going to cause damage. Also, many people with glass roof conservatories find that the constant direct light makes their flooring fade quickly. Patching your conservatory up with a solid roof will protect whatever flooring you have and the re-roofed conservatory cost may well be lower than you think.
Add to value of property
Many people love the idea of a conservatory and house buyers will often have it on their list of “wants”. However, some people find the glass roof structures off-putting and even a little dated. A tiled roof conservatory is a much more modern addition to a home and it can even add to the overall value of your property.
It has the advantages of adding a room. often with less planning involved, and you can opt for any number of shapes, sizes and styles to fit your needs and your budget.
