Yes. We have several solutions to this problem, from installing a very efficient climate control system to installing an insulated roofing system. One of our assessors will be able to advise the best solution for your property.
Yes. Converting a glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof to a solid roof is deemed as the creation of an extension, so a building warrant is always required.
That depends on the size of the conservatory and what shape of roof you have. Typically all roof conversions are completed within the week. However follow on trades such as ames taping, plastering, decoration and electrics will be required to complete the project.
Some conservatories may not be able to withstand the weight of a new solid roof. Our technical assessors have been trained to identify whether your conservatory is suitable and can advise you during their visit. A Structural Engineering Report is always required as part of the building warrant process, giving you peace of mind that the new structure will be there to last.

A gasket is the rubber seal that goes around the window or door to provide weather protection between the frame and glass or sash. If this deteriorates it can cause leaks, so it’s always a good idea to get them checked if you are concerned.
Yes. Typically when seals are worn they need to be replaced. Our assessor will identify what kind of seal or gasket you require so that our technicians can replace them.
Internal condensation usually occurs in the winter, when the warm moist air comes in to contact with the glass, which is typically colder. The best solution to minimise internal condensation is to increase ventilation. It may be possible to retrospectively fit trickle vents in older windows, which will help reduce condensation.
Condensation in between two panes is due to the failure of the seal around the window. to solve this problem you don’t need to replace the whole window, just the double glazed unit which is a straight forward job and costs from as little as £150, supplied and fitted.
