How Much Does a Solid Conservatory Roof Cost?

Posted by Clare Whitehall on Apr 21, 2020

A solid conservatory roof, also known as a tiled or slate conservatory roof involves the complete removal of the current polycarbonate or glass roof structure, as opposed to fitting the new roof over the top of your existing conservatory roof which can cause many complications.

By replacing the existing roof with a solid conservatory roof you don’t just improve the appearance, you now have a fully insulated, vented roof that is no longer too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter - a space you can enjoy all year round.

The cost of a solid conservatory roof depends on a number of factors:

1. The shape/style of your conservatory

Your conservatory will generally be one of the following shapes/styles:

  • Victorian
  • Edwardian
  • Lean-To
  • Gable-Fronted
  • P-Shaped/a Combination Style

2. The size of your conservatory

3. Your chosen roof finish

The outside finish and colour are very important elements when replacing your conservatory roof.  We offer 2 different materials to choose from for your new Conservatory Roof Coversion, both of which are available in a wide variety of colours to best match your home.  These include the Metrotile Esprit Tile and Guardian Tapco Composite Slates, see our guide to Roof finishes here.

4. Inclusion of roof skylights

When replacing your conservatory roof many people are under the assumption that the new ‘garden room’ will be much darker than before, although this is a misconception you may choose to include roof skylights in your new roof. We offer 2 different roof skylight styles to include in your newly refurbished conservatory roof.  These include the Solstice Skylight System and the more traditional Velux Window, see our guide to Roof windows here.

5. Inclusion of Electrics

Lighting can effect the atmosphere and ambiance of a room.  We recommend you include LED Spot Lights in your new plastered ceiling.  You can choose to have as many individual down-lights as you want and you can include dimmer switches or even have more than one switch to alter the number of lights that are on at any one time.

Although for these reasons you will told that it is impossible to provide you with actual prices, at Projects4Roofing we are different.
