Insulated Conservatory Roofs: FAQs

Will there be any changes to the exterior of my conservatory?

No. We don't need to do anything to the exterior structure, and the existing glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof will remain in place. Insulated conservatory roofs offer home improvement without compromising on aesthetics.

Will we lose any headroom in the conservatory?

No. Overall the thickness of the ceiling with insulation is around 60mm.

Can you see the insulation from the outside of the conservatory?

No. Where necessary, opaque film is applied to the inside glazed roof. This is not usually necessary on a polycarbonate roof.

Do I need any kind of planning permission?

No. The exterior of the conservatory is not changed so planning permission is not required.

Is it a messy job and will you disrupt my house?

Plastering can be a messy job, but we have a highly skilled team of fitters and plasterers who will leave your conservatory clean and tidy before they leave, and remove all waste.

How long will it take?

Most conservatories are completed within 2 days, depending on the size of the conservatory. Larger conservatories may take longer. But we always discuss this with you after the survey and before the fitting appointment is arranged.

Will we lose any light once the ceiling is fitted?

There may be a modest amount of light loss, but you will still have all the original wall glazing. Additional lighting can be added if required.

Will the shape of my conservatory roof change?

Usually we are able to follow the existing roof shape for the fitting of the ceiling, but will discuss this with you after the survey.

Which area of the country do you cover?

Our HQ is in the historic City of York but our teams of skilled fitters work cover most of England.

Is it expensive to fit an insulated conservatory ceiling?

No. This is a cost effective solution that will enable you to use your conservatory in greater comfort for more of the year and save on energy bills. All our quotes are confirmed in writing after the survey.

Will there be condensation?

No. A ventilation gap is left above the insulation and the insulation is sealed and acts as a vapour barrier, preventing condensation.
