Installing a new conservatory or upgrading an existing one is a great way of improving your home. Whatever type of conservatory,
orangery or garden room you get, you will have more space to live – something which is especially valuable as working from home continues to become more popular.
What type of conservatory should you get? It will depend on your individual circumstances, but there are some options which give you the best result no matter what they are. The best example of this is choosing a tiled conservatory roof.
A tiled conservatory roof comes with a whole range of benefits which you will love. You can find out more about the main advantages by
The main benefit of a solid conservatory roof over a glass or polycarbonate version is the improved insulation that it offers.
A tiled roof offers an improved u-value, meaning that heat transfers through it more slowly, and its insulative performance is improved. This is the key to turning your conservatory into a truly year-round space which can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
As well as making your conservatory a more useful space and addition to your home, this will also reduce your heating bills and improve the property’s overall EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) – adding value to your home and making a tiled conservatory roof an excellent investment.

In the same way as a tiled conservatory roof is a better insulator, it will also give you a more impressive acoustic performance. Conservatories can suffer from poor acoustics and be overly noisy when the weather is bad. This noise can make it less appealing to spend time in and therefore a less useful or desirable part of your home.
By choosing a lightweight conservatory roof, you can escape this issue. The tiles and solid construction act like any other roof and keep your conservatory calm, peaceful and enjoyable. Along with the insulating qualities described above, this goes a long way towards making your conservatory a place you can enjoy all year round.
A glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof system will often be complex and have many points of failure. Each individual pane of glass is a separate risk, and the whole system can quickly become unattractive thanks to the build-up of dirt.
By choosing tiles instead, you will not have to think about maintenance in the same way. The tiles are easier to keep clean and are more resistant to damage. Likewise, the system as a whole is designed to stay watertight for longer – and all of our tiles come with a 40-year guarantee to demonstrate this toughness.
A tiled conservatory roof is an attractive addition to the home which can be designed to suit any property. Unlike glass or polycarbonate, tiles come in a range of styles and colours which can be matched to your existing roof for a seamless, modern addition to the home. This is the case for both new and existing conservatories.
We offer two different types of lightweight tiles for your solid conservatory roof which come in a wide variety of colours and finishes to suit your home. Every tile has been hand selected for its attractiveness and durability so we can provide a solution which is both aesthetically pleasing and practical at the same time.

Replacing a roof is cheaper
If you have an existing conservatory with a glass or polycarbonate roof, it is significantly cheaper to replace the roof than to replace the entire conservatory. Older-style roofs come with many downsides – as described previously in this article – and it is no surprise that more and more people are turning away from them in favour of tiles.
By replacing the roof only, you can make the most of a cheaper option which will unlock the potential of your conservatory. The process of changing the roof is fast and you will be able to enjoy the benefits far quicker than if you decided to build a whole new conservatory.
Overall, no matter what size and shape your conservatory is, it will benefit from having a solid tiled roof. Are you looking to add an all-weather space to your home? Get in touch with the T25 team today to learn more about our tiled roof conservatories by clicking here.
