5 signs it’s time to think about a roof replacement

Supalite Tiled Conservatory Roof Replacement

Conservatory roofs play a key role in helping homeowners get the most out of their conservatories. Poor roofing can prevent you from performing hobbies, reading or even just relaxing in there. Fortunately, a roof replacement from us at Spectra can rectify that. So if you’ve noticed any of the following signs, consider one for yourself.

1. Uncomfortable temperatures

Does your conservatory feel swelteringly hot in the summer yet hideously cold in the winter? If so, it might be time for a conservatory roof replacement. Conservatory roofing plays a major part in a conservatory’s ability to sustain a comfortable temperature. However, an inability to maintain a consistent temperature is particularly prolific with old glazed and polycarbonate roofs. In such cases, Spectra recommends a tiled conservatory roof; it performs incredibly well in terms of thermal efficiency, creating a conservatory space that is supremely comfortable.

2. Leakage

If there is water visibly making its way through your roof, it’s definitely time a you considered a replacement. A leak can lead to a range of issues within your conservatory, including damaged flooring, walls and furniture, to electrical faults. Leaving these problems unattended can also lead to costly repairs down the line.

3. You’re fed up with how it looks

Over time, a conservatory roof will be subjected to a number of adverse weather conditions, causing colour discolouration, cracks, or even chips in the tiling – such problems are not exactly pleasing on the eye. However, a roof replacement can inject a new lease of life into your conservatory, leaving you with a space that you smile and not grimace at the thought of.

4. Not as much light coming in as you’d like

This can be a particular problem with polycarbonate roofs, as they are often opaque. A lack of transparency means less light will be making its way in, causing your conservatory to appear more dimly lit. Consider a fully glazed replacement, which utilises Celsius performance glass, to create a beautiful and bright space. Or if you have a flat roof that doesn’t allow in enough light, consider a Stratus Thermal Lantern Roof.

5. The rain is causing you pain

If you’re someone who can’t stand the sound of raindrops beating down on your conservatory roof, it’s time to consider a replacement. Polycarbonates are the biggest culprits for noise from rainfall, however raindrops are still faintly audible with glass roofs. Conversely, fitting a tiled roof replacement will eliminate this problem entirely.
