The 365 sunroom

The 365 sunroom.

Replace your old glass or polycarbonate roof with a new, lightweight, modern tile or slate effect composite roof. Available in various colours, the new roof will give your home an impressive modern look. Insulation and shading will provide you with a comfortable and ambient space. In addition, you can also upgrade your windows in your conservatory to A-rated Lorimer windows and completely transform the appearance and usability of your living space. We can even fit windows in the roof to make the most of the natural light.

Thermal efficiency

Thermal efficiency.

These two images show the difference in heat loss between a conventional roof and a CR Smith 365 Sunroom Roof. The contrast between the two is quite substantial. The CR Smith 365 Sunroom Roof has various layers of insulation that creates a thermally efficient living space, keeping warm air out in the summer and preventing the heat escaping in the winter, thus saving the amount of energy required to keep a room at an ambient temperature.

Regulations.

Converting a conservatory to a Sunroom is effectively the creation of an extension, so a building warrant is always required. Simply cladding over your existing roof does not comply with any current regulations. We will organise and carry out the whole application process including the building warrant and the Structural Engineers Report, removing the stress from your upgrade.

To comply with Scottish Building Regulations, all conservatory converted roofs and extensions should be thermally insulated to a maximum U-value of 0.18 W/m2k.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate.

Some conservatory roofs have such a low pitch it is not possible to fit a glass or solid roof. Therefore we have a range of high performance polycarbonate options.

Polycarbonate roofs come in three tints; clear, bronze and opal. You also have the option to include HeatGuardTM which reduces solar gain by over half, compared to clear material. This also minimises glare and reduces yellowing on the uPVC.
