What is a Warm Roof Conservatory?

Conservatories are excellent ways to create more living space in your home. With the right design, a conservatory can become a second lounge, dining area, games room or even a kitchen.

One of the most important elements of the design is the roof. With a warm roof, you can drastically change your conservatory’s look, feel and overall utilisation.

So, what is a warm roof conservatory – and should you get one?

If you’re thinking about replacing your conservatory roof, here’s a quick guide to explain what a warm roof conservatory is and what types you can get.

What is a Warm Roof Conservatory?

Put simply, a warm roof conservatory is a conservatory with a solid, durable, and fully insulated roof. Because of its design, it’s one of the best roofing options available.

Unlike polycarbonate or glazed conservatory roofs (which are always too hot or too cold!), a warm roof regulates temperatures and provides a fully functional living space that can be used all year round.

Even though warm roofs are solid, you don’t lose any natural light after replacement. Through Velux windows, skylights, and downlights, your space can remain bright and sunny.

Should I Get a Warm Roof for my Conservatory?

Replacing your roof is an excellent choice for many homeowners.

With a warm roof, you can:

  • Boost the energy efficiency of your home – and save as much as £200 a year on heating bills!
  • Create a more practical home extension – with a warm roof, your space can be used for anything, all year round!
  • Quickly create more space for living – in over half the time a full home extension would take!
  • Let more natural light flood your home – with innovative roof lanterns and solstice skylights, your home can be brighter than ever!
  • Enjoy less maintenance long-term – unlike polycarbonate or glazed conservatory roofs, which require frequent cleaning to look their best
