If you have a conservatory on your property in Basildon, you may have noticed that you aren’t getting the best out of it in either thermal efficiency or in overall performance. In fact, conservatories are often unused during the winter and colder months simply because they do not hold in heat, and can even go unused in the summer as they can become muggy and humid because of the greenhouse effect. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Your conservatory is meant to be a space useable all year round, as anything from a kitchen extension, an office or a relaxation room, but is being let down by its roof.
You may not think it, but a roof can make or break a conservatory in terms of performance and its heat loss and humidity during warm and cold weather is often down to the fact that up until recently all conservatories came with a polycarbonate roof fitted as standard. Polycarbonate roofs have been proven again and again to be very poor in thermal performance, security and strength, being a cause for massive heat-loss through the ceiling of your conservatory can causing you excessive heating bills during the winter.
However, here at SWD Essex, we are able to supply you with a conservatory roof that isn’t just thermally efficient, but also perfectly replicates the roof of your original property. Our tiled roofs are solid and secure, being made in much the same way as your house’s roof but in much less time and for a much more affordable price.
All of the roofs we supply use the most recent technology for both double glazing and home improvements, ensuring that your home is warm, secure and structurally sound against even the worst kinds of weather. Our designs are also highly fashionable and, should you ever choose to sell on, can increase both the desirability and the overall value of your property.
Tiled Conservatory Roofs to Complement Your Basildon Home
While glass roofs are the more common option next to polycarbonate for conservatories, creating a greenhouse-like appearance, getting a tiled roof is much more energy efficient and secure against both weather and any potential break-ins. Glass roofs often need additional work to improve the levels of insulation in order to maximize the amount of heat being held in, as well as additional upkeep should there be a breakage, but the solid nature of a tiled roof means that there is not just a layer of one or two panes of glass but full on structural supports. If there is any damage at all, it will only be cosmetic, with at most a couple of tiles needing replacing, but only after years of hard-wearing service.
The appearance of your conservatory matters very much to the overall desirability of your property, as well as its value. So, it is important that the roof that you get for your conservatory either blends in and matches with the original roof of your house, or offsets and contrasts it in a fashionable way. With tiled roofs, this can mean the difference in colours or materials for the tiles, as well as what kind of interior detailing you may want. A tiled roof can also have additional skylights installed in in, meaning that you won’t have to compromise on a lack of natural light coming in through the ceiling, while also having control over how much enters and where from.
Increase the Value of Your Basildon Home
No matter if you are considering on selling at some point in the future, or are planning on living in your property for a long time coming, a tiled conservatory roof can be an amazing way of increasing the value of your property.
Not only is it beneficial in outward aesthetic, but the fact that the conservatory can now be used as anything from a study, childrens room, living room or even a workshop can mean that the desirability of your property goes up. Any potential future owner will be able to use it as anything, being a multi-purpose room, and have it be much more than a simple conservatory that is only used in the summertime.

A tiled roof has a lot of benefits not afforded to a conservatory by a glass roof. While these double glazed roofing systems may be the most popular, giving the conservatory a more modern, sleek appearance, tiled roofs aren’t just reserved for traditional or period homes.
Unlike uPVC roofs, tiled roofs can either be fitted with a flat ceiling on the interior, giving the conservatory the appearance of a traditional room rather than a purely glass conservatory, or they can be hollow, with the sloping sides making a triangular ceiling space. This creates more room and allows for skylights to the fitted at a slant to promote rain runoff and not obscuring the view because of pooling water or collected dirt.
Whichever option you choose, a tiled conservatory roof will give your conservatory the illusion and appearance as if it is a natural continuation of your original property, rather than a tacked on afterthought. On the outside, it also gives your conservatory the appearance of a much more expensive extension.
