Andy Davies from Solicon Conservatory Roofs explains how you can transform your conservatory into a ‘365-day-a-year’ comfortable living area, with relaxing lounge temperatures, whatever the weather - allowing you to use the space as an extra dining room, home office, or even a second living room.

Q: What are some common problems people often have with their conservatories?

A: The biggest problem is that people can’t use the space as much as they’d like as it’s often unbearably hot during the summer, and freezing cold during winter.

This sadly leaves very few weeks in the year for people to enjoy their conservatory as intended.

Often this leads to people using the conservatory as nothing more than storage space which can feel like a wasted investment.

Replacing your conservatory roof with one of our solid options will help regulate internal temperatures to make your conservatory a beautiful liveable space all year round.

It will help to keep it nice and cool in the summer, and warm and cosy in the winter, as well as dramatically reducing heat loss in the colder months, helping you save money on energy bills.

We also install soundproofing which reduces external noise as well as disturbance from the rain and wind, helping you to relax and unwind with no distractions. It will also reduce glare from the sun and protect you against harmful UV rays.

Q: What can I use my conservatory for?

A: Practically anything once converted. We have many customers transform the space into a dining room large enough to host the whole family, as a playroom for the children or as an extension of your garden.

Use it as a place to spend some much-needed alone time and unwind with a book at the end of a long day.

With many people now working from home, it’s also a great place to set up a home office and give you a dedicated, organised space that will enable you to work efficiently from home.

Q: Is it worth replacing my conservatory roof?

A: It can help you make the most of the space your existing home has to offer.

In the future, if you consider selling your property, having one of our roofs can help increase your home’s value and create an additional functional space that will appeal to potential buyers.

Q: Is there anything I need to consider before buying a replacement roof?

A: It’s important to work with an installer you can trust. I’d recommend researching customer reviews to help you make your decision.
