How To Make Your Conservatory Useable Again

The frustration of local homeowners’ unable to utilise their old conservatory over Christmas and New Year has seemingly boiled over in many instances.

Since the turn of the year, we have had several householders express interest in our solid roof product as they look to restore thermal insulation in their extension.

Roof performance is integral in conservatory design. When a conservatory roof fails to do its job properly the likelihood is that the structure will become extremely hot in summer and too cold in winter. This forces conservatory owners to abandon its glamorous surrounds for lounging/relaxing/dining when this is what they initially bought it for; it literally becomes a waste of space.

Our first solid roof customer was from Walderslade who had obviously made reviving their existing conservatory (see image below) a major priority for 2016.

Despite a very rainy start to the project, our fitters Martin and Graham managed to make the conservatory watertight on the first day.

The work continued until what you see above, a totally transformed conservatory containing a gorgeous solid roof. All that then was left to do was complete the plastering and electrics on the inside to complete the job to enable the family to make it the primary room of the house once again.

Upon entering the conservatory you can instantly feel and see the difference that the solid roof installation has made. You would hardly believe that it was the same conservatory as the draughts that you could previously feel have completely disappeared and won’t be returning due to its effectiveness at keeping out the weather.

Martin and Graham have since been booked to add the Guardian roof systems to more inefficient conservatories throughout the eden.

We have a fully assembled solid roof conservatory installed in our Kent showroom if your interest has been piqued.
