Is it possible to replace a conservatory roof. The conservatory gets far
too hot in the summer, it doesn't get too cold in winter though. It is
south facing, we are on the south coast, so warm here in the summer. It was
here when we moved in , probably about 12 years old. Victorian design,
What you describe is a feature of conservatories. As far as I know, a new
roof will not make any difference to the summer heat problem. Some people
fit blinds to exclude direct sunlight but I don't know whether they have
much effect on the temperature inside the conservatory, they may just reduce
the glare of the sun.
Assuming your original roof panels are clear and are polycarbonate, you can
replace them with an opaque or bronze finish which will reduce direct heat
from the sun. But caution.! roof panels of that age are likely to be 16mm,
most modern types are either 25 or 32mm. Also because of age, it is highly
likely that the beadings which hold the panels in will be damaged by removal
so make sure they can strill be obtained. (unlikely) A roof vent and blinds
would be the most suitable answer IMHO.
