Replacing your outdated conservatory roof with a new insulated tiled roof will not only improve the appearance of your home, but it can also help to keep it warmer, reduce damp and condensation and even cut down those dreaded winter heating bills.
Knowing when it’s time to get your roof refurbished isn’t easy, but with more and more homeowners upgrading to solid warm conservatory roofing, it is worth to look out for the tell-tale signs.
If you have noticed an excessive build-up of condensation in your conservatory, then chances are, there is an issue with the performance of your roof. The issue is most likely to be with the sealant between the glass or uPVC.
A quick fix can be to keep your windows open or use a dehumidifier to keep a flow of clean air through the property, however sometimes this is not enough. If condensation is a persistent problem in your conservatory, it can lead to mould growth and damp. This can not only cause damage to your furniture, but it can put your health at risk too. This is a certain tell-tale sign that it’s time to replace your roof.
If you avoid spending time in your conservatory, because of the extreme temperature fluctuations throughout the year, then this is another indication that you need to refurbish your conservatory roof. A tiled warm roof is a great insulation solution, ensuring that you can make the most of your conservatory every day of the year.
Draughts are an obvious indication that your conservatory is suffering with insulation issues. If you can feel draughts that are not coming in through the doors and windows, it is likely there’s a crack in your roof allowing cold air to enter. If there is an increase in draughts in your conservatory, this may occur due to the age of your conservatory or due to issues with the sealant fittings. By replacing your roof with a new warm roof, you can eliminate the problem of draughts and contain the heat in your home.
Noticeable Exterior Damage
If you spot cracks or damage to your conservatory’s roof, along with algae and scum build-up, this is a sure sign that your conservatory roof needs replacing. This usually signals that there is a damage to the structure and insulation of your conservatory, that needs to be addressed before further problems occur. Opting for a solid warm roof replacement is guaranteed to prolong the lifespan of your conservatory.
If you notice signs of leaking or water damage in your conservatory, you need to inspect the roof carefully to try and locate the leak. If the leak is coming from the roof, rather than from the conservatory frame, then it is possible that the damage has built up gradually over time due to sealant problems, leaking vents, loose panels or disconnected cappings. Consider updating your conservatory with a tiled roof, which is much less likely to leak and cause further future damage to your conservatory.
