Conservatory roof replacements
Is a conservatory roof replacement worth the cost?
Nowadays, changes in Planning Permission and Building Regulations mean that you now have more conservatory options than ever before.
This relaxation in the rules also means you can replace your conservatory’s roof with something more substantial, which is why a number of different insulated conservatory roof options are available in the UK. If you don’t want to pay for a new conservatory but you have one which leaks, suffers from mould and condensation or that doesn’t maintain a steady temperature all year round, installing a new insulated roof could provide the perfect solution.

Does a replacement conservatory roof need planning permission?
Planning permission is not normally needed for a replacement conservatory roof because it has already been obtained when the structure was previously put in place, meaning the roof can be replaced without any hassle. However, if you are re-roofing an existing conservatory by installing a solid roof rather than a glass or translucent roof, a Building Regulation Application will be required.
