Conservatories are amongst the most popular home extensions in the UK, as they are a fantastic way to add light, space, and great practicality to your home.

However, conservatory roofs can deteriorate over time, just like any other part of the home. This is especially the case with polycarbonate roofs, which can be prone to leaking, poor insulation, noise pollution, and other issues.

These issues aren’t exclusive to polycarbonate of course, which may lead you to consider replacing your conservatory roof.

In which case, you may be wondering which variables affect the total cost. There are several factors, including materials, size, style, choice of finish, and many more, which this blog will cover in depth.

What impacts the cost of a conservatory roof replacement?


One factor that will alter replacement conservatory roof prices is the material.

At Double Glazing Direct, we are proud to offer glass and tiled roof replacements.

Both have their unique perks, but in general, glass roofs are a more budget-friendly option. However, that’s not to say you’re compromising on quality, as our glass conservatory roofs boast great energy efficiency, are durable, and allow you to enjoy panoramic views of your garden, being a great way to allow natural light into your home in the process.

Tiled roof replacements act as more of an extension of the home, are incredibly tough and weather-resistant, insulate sound effectively, and offer a sophisticated aesthetic.

Both are brilliant options and the one that’s best for you in the long run depends on your unique circumstances.


Your conservatory style may also impact the cost of a new roof.

For example, the solid roof on a Lean-To conservatory is a simple replacement, as its single-sloped design makes it more straightforward.

Victorian or Edwardian styles on the other hand usually have more ridges, facets, and structures that can take longer to dismantle, as well as installation techniques and more intricate cutting if you choose to re-install a similar style.

Our team at Double Glazing Direct replace conservatory roofs between 3 and 5 metres in both depth and width.

As expected, the larger the installation is, the more expensive the average cost will be.

This is down to an increased number of materials required and in some cases more labour.

Choice of finish

We have a strong offering of 21 striking shades at Double Glazing Direct, as well as 3 slate and tile collections.

Basic paint finishes are usually the cheapest, though this isn’t always the case.

As for the glass, we have an attractive range of decorative glazing, with more transparent finishes such as Warwick and Reeded opposed to the more private Tribal and Pelerine.

We can install temperature-moderating, Low-E glass to protect against overheating, and our Fakro glass panels or roof windows can help attract more natural light and ventilation – you can also rest assured that our conservatory roof installations can achieve outstanding U-values as low as 0.18.
