How Much Does a Tiled Conservatory Roof Cost?

The true cost of a new conservatory roof could be as much as the existing conservatory had cost in the first place. For example, a fully compliant system from Ploughcroft starts at around £7000. But our tiled conservatory roofs provide a U-Value of less than 0.18, a 10-year workmanship guarantee, and more. There are plenty of factors involved, which we’ll go into soon.

A conservatory roof replacement is the must-have home improvement of the day. Replacing your glass conservatory roof with a tiled one will allow you to enjoy your conservatory all year round and make better use of your living space. We know it’s a big deal, a big investment to make, so it needs thinking about.

Don’t Be Fooled by Low Prices

“Cheap and cheerful” isn’t always so cheerful. It may be tempting to go for a cheap ‘clad over’ option for your conservatory. This way, homeowners hope to cut the cost by keeping their old roof structure and still benefit. Unfortunately, it’s bad practice not to remove the old structure, so we highly recommend seeking out a high standard when making changes to your home.

What to Watch Out For

Some important things to look out for when replacing your conservatory roof include:

1. Building Regulations

Systems that comply with Building Regulations involve removing the old conservatory roof structure. A cheap ‘clad over’ system will never do.

2. Condensation Issues

Clad-over systems often suffer from condensation issues.

3. Scaffolding

The removal of your conservatory roof should involve scaffolding to comply with the Work at Height Regulations.

4. Fire Safety

Any replacement roof should be fire tested and carry a fire safety certificate for the entire roof system. Clad-over systems cannot be properly fire tested because they still include the old roof structure. To comply with BS 476-3:2004, a solid roof must have a classification of AC, AB or AA.

5. Local Building Control

Your local authority’s building control needs to be informed before the roof replacement begins.

6. 10-Year Guarantee

The new roof should have a 10-year, insurance-backed guarantee, with evidence of the warranty — e.g. Competent Roofer Guarantee or equivalent.

7. Handling All Weathers

Systems should be engineered to handle harsh winds and heavy snow loads. Some roofing systems are up to standard, but others are not.
