A solid roof gable conservatory is a highly popular home solution due to its rectangular shape, which provides an abundance of space, but also plenty of natural light to flood the area. A Gable conservatory with an UltraRoof can provide homeowners with high levels of thermal insulation and comfort all year round. This solid roof also features a plastered internal finish, which can come with glazing so you still have views of the outside. The simple 2-facet design of a gable conservatory allows a simple and quick installation of the UltraRoof slates. These slates are available in grey, brown and red to complement your home perfectly. You can also customise your UltraRoof with its glass panels, which can be positioned centrally or offset according to your tastes. However, you can also choose to have no glass panels if you’d like to create a comfier ambience.
Lean-to conservatories have a sloping roof which provides an expanse of space that is ideal for an UltraRoof. This 1-facet roof design can proudly display your chosen roof slates, while allowing extensive sky views. Our roof slates for a lean-to conservatory are available in grey, brown or red, and each reveal the authentic texture and plateaux of the engineered, low-maintenance roof covering. If you opt for glazing to be incorporated in your UltraRoof, we have different tints for you to choose from, including clear, aqua, blue and bronze to complement your home. Each type of glass we offer is specifically designed to retain heat, keeping you warm throughout winter but not too hot during the summer months.
Edwardian conservatories have a traditional rectangular structure which echoes the style of the Edwardian era. When accompanied with a typical polycarbonate or glass conservatory roof, this style tends to look a little archaic. An easy solution to revitalise an Edwardian conservatory is to install an UltraRoof. This can replace your existing conservatory roof, while allowing you to still keep your current windows, doors and base. With an Edwardian conservatory, the front facet of the UltraRoof usually consists of the solid roof tiling, while the sides can feature glass panels of your choosing. This combination of slates and glass gives you both thermal insulation and natural light, as well as sky views that you can enjoy all year round. Where your conservatory facets meet, ridge caps are installed. Our ridge caps also offer you further variety, as you can choose from a sleek and smooth aluminium or an ‘armadillo’ slate ridge cap to match the colour and texture of your roof slates.
Victorian conservatories typically feature a 3-bay or 5-bay front, creating a more rounded space with a curved front to allow panoramic view. Whether 3 or 5 bays, a Victorian conservatory is ideal for an UltraRoof. For the front facing bays brown, grey or red slates add an unparalleled level of thermal insulation, which can keep you warm throughout winter yet cool in the summer. The slates are exclusively designed for the UltraRoof system to resist expansion and retraction and they can therefore cracking and splitting. Glass panels can also be incorporated into your UltraRoof within the two rectangular sections of your Victorian conservatory. This allows sky views as well as natural light to flood the space. Each section of your UltraRoof is connected by a sleek aluminium ridge cap, or a traditional ‘armadillo’ ridge cap which can complement your chosen roof slates.
UltraRoof helps you maintain the ideal temperature all year round.
UltraRoof offers outstanding levels of thermal efficiency and manages to overcome the issues of your conservatory being too hot in summer and too cold in winter. This is one of the main reasons behind UltraRoof’s popularity, as homeowners can relax and even entertain guests in their home extension’s all year round. With older conservatories, the typical polycarbonate roof that they feature can struggle to regulate your conservatory’s temperature. Although glass conservatory roofs are an improvement, they do not come close to the thermal efficiency offered with an UltraRoof.
The u-value (heat loss value) of UltraRoofs are only 0.12 W/m²K, making them one of most lightweight and thermally efficient roofing systems available. The addition of glazing panels create an outdoor ambience without taking away from the warmth. To see the u-values of our various glazing, please see our Glazing Options.

If on the other hand, you’d like to change everything, including the shape and size of your conservatory we can help you with a completely new project.
