Metrotile is Europe’s No.1 choice for conservatory solid roof conversions

From small conservatory roofs to larger spaces on heritage homes, many people are finding that a Metrotile roof can turn what is traditionally a summertime space into an area that can be enjoyed all year round! Leading conservatory fabricators across the UK continually use Metrotile as a roofing material supplier while contractors are using Metrotile to convert existing conservatory roofs in a drive to keep home energy costs down. So, whether your project is a refurbishment or to be built from the ground up, Metrotile has it covered.

To see how you could benefit from a conservatory roof conversion, fill in our contact form or give our team a call on 01249 658514.

Lightweight steel conservatory roofing

As a Metrotile roof weighs up to one seventh of ‘traditional’ roofing materials, a uPVC frame conservatory is now able to have a Metrotile roof installed upon it without posing a risk to the existing structure. From Rafters and VPU for insulation to double glazed Velux windows for natural light, a Metrotile tiled roof makes this all possible and means you don’t lose the space of your conservatory to the cold, winter months. With a Metrotile conservatory roof conversion, keeping the sliding doors sealed shut through the winter is a thing of the past.

Improved insulation for the space

It’s no secret that UK energy prices have been increasing annually, squeezing UK residents out of more money in exchange for less energy. A Metrotile solid conservatory roof replacement can drastically improve the insulation and increase energy efficiency. This means you can keep your home warm at less expense while ensuring less of the money spent on energy is wasted. Building regulations state that you don’t need planning permission to replace your conservatory roof, making it a simple solution to saving money in the long run.

Low pitch roofing

When constructing your new conservatory or orangery, it’s important to give some clearance between the conservatory roofing and the upstairs windows of your home. Metrotile low pitch roof tiles can be installed as low as 10° which accounts for any windows above your home, giving leeway while matching the rest of your home exterior.
