The benefits of upgrading your dated conservatory

We’re seeing more and more requests from clients who would like to upgrade their conservatories.

Many of them are between 20 and 30 years old and consist of a uPVC framed glazed structure. Whilst these were a very popular way to extend a home, they are clearly unable to retain heat in the Winter and become very warm and bright in the Summer.

A current trend is to upgrade old conservatories into ‘Sun Rooms’ by replacing the original structure with a fully insulated roof, insulated floor and insulated walls to meet the current building regulations. This allows the room to become thermally efficient allowing comfortable use all year around.

By adding a lantern roof-light within the flat roof structure, the natural light gained from a conservatory can be maintained with the option for further ventilation.

The benefits include:

  • The room becomes thermally efficient
  • Comfortable use of the room all year around because the temperature is stabilised
  • Heating bills may be reduced
  • Future proofing the building
  • Lantern roof-lights can maintain the light achieved by the original conservatory and add additional ventilation.
