Will having a Supalite conservatory roof increase the value of my home?

What is the weight, per square meter, for a tiled roof?
The weight of the tiled roof is 48kg per sq. met, however, this may vary by roof style.
What type of materials are the roof tiles made from?
The tiles used on Supalite conservatory roofs are made of a steel base with a natural stone finish and an acrylic overgraze.
Will the tiled roof rust over time?
The tiled roof will not rust, as the Supalite roof is made of an aluminium structure. The advantage of using aluminium for conservatory roofing is the fact that this material does not rust
Do you stick the tiles onto marine plywood?
Yes, we use 12mm ‘Water Boil-Proof’ (WBP) marine exterior grade plywood. WBP plywood is the ultimate weather resistant plywood.
Why is the structure and support of the conservatory roof made of aluminium, rather than wood?
The Supalite roof is manufactured from structural aluminium, which is a system designed to be pre-fabricated in our factory with structural connections.
Will my existing window frames be strong enough to hold the Supalite tiled roof?
Supalite roofs do not greatly differ in weight to a traditional conservatory roof and therefore 9 out of 10 window frames are suitable to carry the weight. The responsibility to ensure the window frames are suitable to carry the Supalite Tiled Roof lies with the installation company/surveyor. They will carry out an assessment at the point of order. An upgrade is available where structural mullions can be supplied; these are designed to carry the weight of the roof directly to the foundations.
Once the roof is installed, is it strong enough to walk on?
Yes, the solid conservatory roof will be strong enough to walk on. However, we recommend that you use a ply sheet or board to spread the weight evenly over the tiles.
Will it be possible to replace my existing windows after a new Supalite conservatory roof has been fitted?
Yes, you can replace your current conservatory windows after your Supalite conservatory roof has been fitted providing structural mullions were fitted at point of installation of the roof
What is the best way to clean the tiled roof, without leaving marks?
We recommend that you use an airline to clean the roof or alternatively, you can hose it down with water.
Can I replace some of the windows with a brick wall after a Supalite conservatory roof has been installed?
Yes, you can still replace your conservatory windows with a brick wall once your Supalite conservatory roof has been fitted.
Will it be possible to remove the internal doors once the Supalite conservatory roof has been installed?

A sunroom is an added room that permits abundant sunlight and views of the landscape while sheltering from adverse weather. Sunrooms may feature passive solar building design to heat and illuminate them.
