Conservatories are a great way to extend your home and living space.
They have many benefits from creating a living space that you and your family can enjoy in the warmer months, to having an extra space to host parties and gatherings.
But one of the many misleading factors is that conservatories are quite expensive and that you need planning permission in order to install one onto your home.
In this blog, we discuss everything you need to know about tiled roof conservatories.
What is a tiled roof conservatory?
A tiled roof conservatory is simply a conservatory that has been installed (or in some cases) upgraded to include a tiled roof.
This allows for the conservatory to be much more energy-efficient throughout the year.
With a lightweight roof that is easy to install, it allows the homeowner to enjoy the tiled roof and all its benefits from day one.
Not only that, but tiled roofs are quite contemporary and stylish, especially if you have an old conservatory, it can transform an old looking conservatory to appear brand new and recently installed.
How much is it to tile a conservatory roof?
It really depends on the size of the conservatory and how much work is needed to get the job done.
As tiled roofs are mostly lightweight and easy to install it may not be as expensive as you think, so we wouldn’t rule it out if you were thinking of upgrading your conservatory roof any time soon.

Can tiled roofs help bring energy costs down?
If you currently spend a lot of time in your conservatory but realise how cold it is, you’re probably used to keeping the heating on whilst you spend your time in there to stay warm.
What you probably don’t realise is that your conservatory is probably allowing the heat to escape through draughts and poorly thermal roofs and maybe even doors.
So it’s well worth considering upgrading to a tiled roof, just so that you can save on energy costs and promote thermal energy in the conservatory.
Whatsmore is that if you leave the door to the conservatory open, the rest of your home will then be less energy-efficient because heat then has a way of escaping and before you know it, your electric or gas bill will rise due to the fact that your heating has been on much longer and higher.
Therefore by installing a tiled roof, you don’t need to worry whether or not you’ve left the conservatory door to your home open or not, you don’t have to worry about keeping the heating on for most of the day whilst you spend your time in there as it’s highly energy efficient and makes the living space more cosy and comfortable to be in.
Do I need planning permission to replace my conservatory roof?
In most cases, you won’t need planning permission if you’re changing your conservatory roof. But we would advise checking with your local council, especially if your conservatory is currently attached to your house.
But if your conservatory is separate to your home and has its own heating system, then more than likely, you won’t need a building regulation for a tiled roof replacement or upgrade.
