There are growing concerns within the solid conservatory roof market, mainly amongst industry professionals whom have a wealth of experience. This concern surrounds the growing volume of companies offering ‘Conservatory Solid Roofs’ with a named ‘Over-clad/ cover over or an Underclad method.’

If you are receiving a quotation for your replacement roof with the above method, please be vigilant and question the following:

  1. Is your existing conservatory roof structure suitable to take the weight of some of these methods.
  2. Is the overall system structurally tested and is there reports to state the structural integrity, wind loads and snow loads.
  3. Is there any guarantee with the over clad / cover over, if so, ask to see it and what does the guarantee cover?
  4. Has the roof undergone a condensation risk assessment, spanning 12 full months and if so, ask to see it?
  5. Is a clad over / cover over or under-clad suitable and compliant with building control?
  6. Above all is the job safe and can the safety of the roof be provided in writing.
