Conservatory Roof Conversion Installation Process…
We have completed conservatory roof conversions across Nottingham, Derby, Newark, Mansfield and surrounding areas. Below are photographs from a finished job to show a typical installation processs, please note our lightweight, solid, insulated conservatory roofs are bespoke and made to measure for every job…
1. Take Out The Existing Roof
First the existing conservatory roof is removed and disposed of, we can remove all types of existing conservatory roofs including polycarbonate and glass..
GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) rafters are installed creating the structural frame for the new solid roof. The GRP rafters include a structural ring beam, rafters and ridge. GRP is structurally tested and not prone to wood worm, condensation or rotting like typical timber structures and also is not at risk of cold bridging/sweating like aluminium. It is also very lightweight putting less strain on the conservatory structure underneath.
Next, 100% waterproof sheets are added under the GRP rafters. The sheets are very lightweight (about one third of the weight of plasterboard) and allow for a traditional plaster skim finish ideal for painting.
Insulation is then inserted with a small gap from the waterproof sheets and will massively improve your conservatories efficiency in retaining heat.
Outer sheets are now added, which reduce the number of roofing bars and increase the efficiency of the conservatory.
These sheets are very strong, load bearing and insulated. They are a structural alternative to plywood and are much lighter than any other type of roofing board.
The sheets also have a 100% waterproof outer covering.
The final step is to add the tiles, w use Tapco lightweight synthetic tiles which look authentic and are available in a range of colour and styles and are currently guaranteed by Tapco for 40 years.
