Replacement insulated solid roof.

Our insulated solid roof is a modern alternative to a traditional build which features lightweight composite tiles or slates. It will provide insulation and shading, giving you a comfortable and ambient space to use all year round.

It can be constructed in any of the typical conservatory shapes such as Victorian, Edwardian, lean-to and gable – so will perfectly replace roof you already have. On the inside the roof is fully vaulted making it a real feature, plus there are various glazing options available to maximise natural light in your new room.

Replacement Smartglass roof.

If you like the idea of your living space being flooded with natural light, why not upgrade to Smartglass® roof. It is far more aesthetically pleasing than the polycarbonate equivalent and provides much better sound insulation, especially during bad weather.

The roof itself is an extruded aluminium clad design which is finished with PVCu on the inside to match the windows. Its engineered construction means the roof is fully built and tested prior to installation which carries British Board of Agrément accreditation. The aluminium design will remain colour-fast and gives it additional rigidity and strength, unlike PVCu roofs. Each roof has a unique wind and snow loading specification, calculated prior to manufacture.

The ultimate Lorimer conservatory renovation.

As part of a Lorimer renovation package, not only will we change your existing conservatory roof, but we can also replace your conservatory windows and doors as well. 

We reuse your existing foundations and builder work, then fit new energy A-rated Lorimer windows and doors, and your choice of either a super-efficient Smartglass® roof with optional orangerie detailing, or an insulated solid roof. 

If opting for a glass roof we would recommend fitting our A+++ rated energy efficient climate control system to ensure you get the best out of the space all year round. 

We’ll give the inside a complete makeover:

  • New electrics and heating
  • New plasterboard
  • New timber sills and skirtings
  • New engineered timber flooring
  • Professionally painted and varnished
  • 10-year guarantee

Polycarbonate roof.

Where conservatory roofs have a very 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 HeatGuard™ which reduces solar gain by over half, compared to clear material. This also minimises glare and reduces yellowing on the uPVC.
