Why is my conservatory too cold?

Grey Solid Tile Roof

When the tempting concept of “chilling out” in your home’s extended living space comes to mind, the last thing you want is to do this in the literal sense. Sadly, for most homeowners with a conservatory, a frosty and unwelcome environment will be an all too familiar occurrence. But it doesn’t have to be.

If you’re someone who frequently asks themselves “Why is my conservatory too cold?”, we at Evaroof can help shed some light on the situation.

Your conservatory’s roof is the most likely candidate

In most cases, the cause for coldness within a conservatory can be traced back to the roof. This is because heat rises by its very nature, and therefore will escape if the structure’s existing roof is of poor quality or not well fitted. Especially if you’re still sporting a polycarbonate roof widely used in conservatories throughout the 90s and early 2000s, the cold will almost certainly set in. Polycarbonate has little to no insulation capability, meaning that any heat present will be wasted.


Other reasons for a cold conservatory could be due to lack of double glazing in the space’s surrounding windows and doors. A conservatory finds itself constantly needing to face off the elements, this includes wind and air, and therefore some form of resistance should be implemented by way of one or two more layers of glass.

What can you do to resolve this?

Thankfully, resolving a conservatory’s coldness is a relatively straightforward and understandable endeavour. A replacement roof that is fitted to be watertight and intricately layered will do just the trick, retaining any precious heat naturally or artificially generated in the space. Thanks to the combination of aluminium, PIR insulation boards, and lightweight tiles all work together to maintain a balanced temperature 365 days a year.

Improved acoustic and thermal insulation almost instantly

A new solid tiled conservatory roof not only reduces energy bills and improves comfort, but also renders rainfall noise a thing of the past. Whereas with a plastic polycarbonate the pitter-patter of the water drops can sometimes sound like your conservatory is coming under enemy fire, the lightweight tiles used with a solid roof replacement absorbs the impact much better.

Would Highly Recommend Evaroof!

Being from a roofing/building background I was a bit dubious to go with a slate roof but it’s made such a difference due to the insulation qualities. During the recent heatwave, we have been able to spend all day in the room now whereas before it would have been too hot. Excellent installation carried out by the fitting team with nothing being too much trouble, very clean workers. Would highly recommend Eva roof!
