Q. Will i loose much light?
No the standard polycarbonate roof is opaque and limits light intrusion,with the majority of light delivered into the conservatory through the windows and doors. The new painted white roof also brightens up the space and reflects the light that comes through the windows & doors. it is considered that the installation of this system on average only results in a modest light loss of about 5%.
Q. Will it look different?
Inside Yes, externally it will look the same if you want an internal conservatory conversion, if its a full tiled conservatory roof conversion it will look more like a sunroom, extension. Internally you`ll have a solid vaulted plastered ceiling.
Q. I have some roof window openings,will i loose them?
Some customers want roof openings leaving in, some want the roof openings covered. So its entirely the customers choice.
Q. Will the roof require cross ventilation?
Yes an air gap is retained which is hidden within the depths of the system, also behind the external guttering ventilation is installed ensuring that there is enough air circulation to prevent condensation being formed.
Q. What effect will the additional weight do to the roof?
The roofs are all either galvanised mild steel, aluminium or timber, they are designed to withstand wind loads, snow loads and human traffic, with huge tolerances.
Q. Will i loose much head height?
No because our conservatory roof conversion system follows the existing profile of the vaulted roof.
