Will a Comfortable Conservatories conservatory ceiling keep the temperature in my conservatory down in summer, or does it only help keep it warm in winter?
It will do both equally well. Between the existing roof of your conservatory, and the UPVC panels of your new ceiling, we line the ceiling with a specially designed slim panel material made up of multiple reflective and thermally insulating layers, with all layers and exterior surfaces thermally welded together.
This highly efficient insulator stops heat from escaping in winter, keeping your conservatory warm. Then, in summer, it both reflects away the sun, and prevents warm air from outside from raising the temperature inside your conservatory.
You can read more about conservatory ceiling lining in our brochure.
Would a Comfortable Conservatory Ceiling cut down the level of outside noise in my conservatory?
Absolutely. The lining material we use not only provides superb thermal insulation; it provides an excellent sound insulation too. This is because of the sandwiching of seven layers of material inside a welded ‘pack’, with one of these layers consisting of encapsulated air pockets. With your new ceiling installed, both the sound of rain and hale impacting directly on the roof, and the noises made by traffic, aircraft and other outside agents will both be reduced.
Does a Comfortable Conservatory Ceilings affect the external appearance of a conservatory?
Firstly, nothing is actually altered on the exterior of your conservatory in any way. If you have a conservatory with a clear glass roof and look down into it, you will see a flat expanse of neutrally coloured ceiling lining, which looks similar to the appearance of a ceiling blind. If you have a translucent polycarbonate roof, you will see almost no difference at all if you look down into the conservatory, as the neutral ceiling lining will make little or no change to the diffuse appearance of the polycarbonate.
Can you install my Comfortable Conservatory Ceiling in a day?
We can indeed. All our conservatory ceiling installations are completed in one day. Two of our installers will complete most sizes and shapes of conservatory in that time, but if you have an unusually large conservatory then we simply send more fitters. Whatever happens, your new ceiling will be in by the end of the day.
My Comfortable Conservatory Ceiling won’t help solve my condensation problem will it?
Condensation occurs when warm, moist air, such as that in your conservatory, rises and hits a cold surface, such as the roof of your conservatory. The warm air condenses on the cold surface, forming moisture. our 19 layer insulation material forms a barrier that prevents the warm air in your conservatory from condensing on the roof and, as it provides such an excellent thermal barrier above the new ceiling panels, it prevents them from ever being cold enough for vapour to condense on.
What ventilation does an insulated conservatory ceilings require?
None! Whereas other types of conservatory ceiling may create a void which needs ventilating, Our insulated conservatory ceilings are constructed in a way that requires no ventilation gaps and results in a slimmest possible ceiling profile.
What kind of a guarantee do I get?
We guarantee the workmanship of our installation for 5 years. No quibble. If anything goes wrong, we come back and fix it. Our panels and lining are also fully guaranteed for 5 years by the manufacturer.
How much does an Comfortable Conservatory Ceiling cost?
Naturally, this depends on the size and style of your conservatory. If you would like a quote, please use our contact form. Measure the length and width of your conservatory as accurately as you are able and tell us the style, if you know it. This could be lean-to, Edwardian or Victorian, say. If it has an unusual shape floor plan, try to tell us the overall floor area, which you can usually work out by treating the plan as a number of rectangles joined together. As soon as we have this information from you, we will work out a quote and send this back to you.
I live in Scotland/Wales/Cornwall. Will you install a ceiling at my home?
We try to accommodate all customers, wherever they live in the UK. Occasionally, it may prove impractically costly to undertake an installation in, say, the north of Scotland, but we are always happy to assess what would be involved and quote accordingly. Once we have provided a quote, if you are interested in progressing your enquiry we will arrange a no-obligation visit to your home to show you the materials we use, to check your conservatory is indeed suitable and that the space matches the quote we have provided, and to answer any questions you may have.
Are you able to send me the Comfortable Conservatories brochure?
Of course. Please call us on 0800 772 3318 or complete the send me a brochure form on our contact us page providing your name and address and we will be pleased to send a copy to you with our compliments.
Will a Pilkington Activ Blue glass roof keep the temperature in my conservatory down in summer, or does it only help keep it warm in winter?
This type of glass has been specially designed to give your conservatory teperature control. It reflects harmful UV rays and dramatically reduces the heat build up through solar control.
As it is highly energy efficient, it does not allow heat to leave through it, so keeps any heat in during the winter months by creating convection.
Would a glass roof cut down the level of outside noise in my conservatory?
Indeed, as opposed to polycarbonate, which effectively amplifies the noise of rain, a glass roof dampens the noise almost completely.
Is it a big messy job changing my whole roof?
A full conversion from a polycarbonate roof to a new Pilkington Activ Blue glass roof is generally carried out in one day. Our fully trained and
experienced installers remove your old roof down to the window level before installaing a brand new roof from the ring beam upwards. All of the
roof has already been assembled in the factroy to ensure everything is in place. New guttering and crest and finials are also installed.
Your old roofalong with any debris is taken away at the end of the job and disposed of responsibly.
Can I change the design of my roof?
If you have a lean to roof, or a design of roof you are not happy with, you should be able to change the design with a new glass roof. There are a
couple of limitation, but generally, a new roof can be redesigned. Our experienced representatives will be pleased to offer advice on all of your
options and give you a quotation on your chosen design.
What type of materials are used on my new Tiled Effect Roof
Comfortable Conservatories only use Tapco Slates for the very best aesthetic looks and weather proofing on our tiled effect roofs. These synthetics slates have a lifetime (50year) manufacturer backed guarantee and come in a range of colours to compliment any style of home.
Will a Tiled Conservatory Roof upgrade my conservatory?
Replacing either your glass or poly roof with a tiled effect roof will most definitely give you an all year round living space. They are insulated to Building Control approval which in turn will cut down hugely on your heating bills. It will also contribute greatly to the overall SAP Calculations on your house.
Is the roof noisy?
A lot of householders that have either a glass or poly roof would complain about the noise level from the outside elements but with a Tiled Effect Roof you will not be affected by these as it has its own roof tile and the depth of insulation involved is so great.
What is the guarantee on a Conservatory Tiled Effect Roof?
The roof tile guarantee is 40 years but we also give a full 10 year guarantee on the overall roof workmanship and installation.
How long from start to finish?
On a roof size up to and including 16m2 it should take no longer than 4 working days and on a larger size or bespoke shape it should take no longer than 5 days.Your conservatory will always be watertight during the installation process.
Will it match my existing house tile or slate?
ATiled Effect roof tile is very sympathetic to all existing house finishes and with its slimline ridges and end caps you will not have the very cumbersome look of mortar on a low level extension.
Do I Need Planning Permission?
The simple answer is No. Unless you intend to remove the doors between your house and your conservatory, planning permission is
not required for any of our insulation solutions. However, your local authority may require you to apply for Building Control,
