Here at Great Harwood Windows, we get asked a lot of questions about conservatory roofs, from ‘is it worth replacing my conservatory roof?’ through to ‘what different replacement conservatory roof options do Great Harwood offer?’.

So, let us answer some of your most frequently asked questions about conservatory roofs.

Can I replace my polycarbonate conservatory roof?

Yes, you can. Although polycarbonate conservatory roofs were state-of-the-art at the time they were installed, they have since become dated and dreary designs that are notorious for heat loss. Replacing your conservatory roof with one of our three replacement roofing solutions: glass conservatory roof replacement, LivinRoof replacement conservatory roofs, or tiled conservatory roofs, is the best way to makeover your old conservatory.

Do conservatory roofs require building regulations?

Yes, replacing your conservatory roof will require building regulation approval which you will need to obtain from your local council. This is to ensure the structure of your conservatory is safe to support the weight of your new conservatory roof.

How long should a conservatory roof last?

Typically speaking most conservatory roof types have an average lifespan of between 10 and 15 years. To keep your conservatory roof in the best condition and prolong its life expectancy, we would recommend regular upkeep and maintenance. For extra peace of mind, all our conservatory roofs come with a 10-year insurance backed guarantee as standard.

What is the best colour for a conservatory roof?

All our replacement conservatory roofs are available in a variety of colour and style options to suit your home. How about opting for classic cream to match the colour of your integral blinds? Integral blinds sit between two panes of glass featured in your double glazed units and offer you the ability to easily adjust natural light entry while retaining a sense of privacy.

Or perhaps opting for a traditional sage green? Whatever your colour preference, we are confident that we have a colour for you.
