Insulated Conservatory Roofing Questions


No. Usually a couple of hours to do an in-depth survey and a day to install.

Usually you will not need to. In some situations where a lot of inside work needs doing you may prefer to move some of your furniture out of your conservatory.

Not considering the life-long return and the more use you will get out of your conservatory.
Also, compared to many alternative roof modifications, a Thermotec Insulated Roof is much more cost effective.

You will undoubtedly get less direct sunlight when the sun is directly above but you will not get less daylight into the conservatory because of the amount of glass that make up the sides. The key benefit is that you will get far less glare from the overhead sun and be able to enjoy the conservatory more than you ever did before.

Extremely unlikely. In the majority of cases we will be able to install a Thermotec roof without the need for any structural alteration to your conservatory or sun-lounge. This is because our system is compatible with all conservatories that have a rafter roof system, whether it is constructed from Timber, Aluminium or PVC-u. What this means to you is that it keeps the costs down and minimises disruption.

Sadly, no. A batten and plaster ceiling does more harm than good. 


I wouldn’t advise that you do anything with your existing roof now it has a revive ceiling, well, certainly not until the polycarbonate has had its day (about 15 years would be about the best).

If you attempt to change the polycarbonate the movement will cause the ceiling to crack as the rafters are not rigid enough.

You cannot remove the existing ceiling unless you renew the whole roof as the battens are screwed into the rafters and without renewing them you would see where the screws were.

Also, the rafters are a ‘W’ shape and channel any water that gets behind the gaskets into the gutter, so removing the screws will cause a leak.
