More homeowners are now recognising how a solid conservatory roof can transform their home. David Gallagher, MD of Connaught Conservatory Roofs explains why: “Quite simply, a solid tiled conservatory roof has a lot to offer different sectors of the market.” The solid tiled conservatory roof is often sold as a solution to an ageing, inefficient conservatory and that’s still a major market. It’s equally useful for solving the problem of a north or south facing conservatory that is either too hot or too cold for large parts of the year. It’s also finding increased interest from homeowners wanting to extend their home but not wanting the upheaval or expense of a traditional brick-built extension – a tiled roof on a conservatory is the perfect compromise. Connaught Conservatory Roofs offers three tiled roof. The Guardian Roof is a lightweight, thermally efficient solution that can be configured for all conservatory styles. Ultraframe’s RealRoof is one of the most thermally efficient roofs on the market and allows the homeowner to specify any traditional tile finish, so the conservatory can match in with the existing property. Finally, there is the LivinRoof from Ultraframe, which utilises the best-selling Classic Roof system as the basis for the conversion, and is aimed at the replacement and New conservatory sector of the market. One of the many excellent features of the LivinRoof is the ability to mix Solid and Glazed panels on the same roof. All three are covered by Connaught’s partnership with Rotherham Building Control Consultancy and the independent consultancy JHAI which gives installers nationwide a quick, straightforward way to gain approval for an installation for £300 or less + VAT. The solid tiled roofs are part of a comprehensive portfolio of conservatory products that Connaught Fabricate and supply that help installers tap into the potential that the market offers such as the Loggia Prestige and LivinRoom and Cornice from Ultraframe – a cost-effective package that transforms a standard conservatory into something very special and improves thermal efficiency by up to 30 percent. David adds, “We know there are plenty of opportunities out there because we have seen a 20 percent year-on-year sales increase. The key is in offering products that fill a market need which is why we work with our customers to meet that need.” We are now a one stop shop for a variety of Conservatory roofs and accessories.
