Conservatory Roofing Systems: What Are My Choices for A Conservatory Transformation?

Posted by Clare Whitehall on Dec 30, 2021

Decisions, decisions, decisions!

We know it can be hard when faced with so much choice, but if you’re looking for a way to improve your converted conservatory but don’t know where to start, we have the perfect solution. 

A conservatory roofing system is vital for the structure and longevity of your conservatory.

Yet, with a variety of options available, you might be asking yourself which is the right roof that will suit your needs, and that will depend on your existing roof style.

But don't worry about a thing, Projects4Roofing provides expert advice to help you make an informed decision for you to transform your conservatory roof and complete that perfect conservatory transformation.

Your conservatory transformation must have style!

Your converted conservatory can be an excellent place to host any event by undergoing a complete conservatory transformation.

But what style do you choose?

The most important thing to keep in mind when you are looking for a solid roof conservatory is the existing style of your home-roof and conservatory. 

Luckily, Guardian Warm Roofs offer a wide range of roofing solutions with many different styles, but ultimately, the roof that you'll get will depend on your current top. So, if you have an Edwardian conservatory, the roof will be an Edwardian and cannot be changed when you install a Guardian Warm Roof. The same will happen with the Victorian and T & P, you'll get the Victorian and T & P respectively. 

But, in another hand, if you have a Lean To, you can change it to a Double Hipped or an Edwardian when you install a Guardian Warm Roof. And if you have a Gable Fronted, it can be changed to an Edwardian.

Benefits of each Guardian Warm Roof style:


The Edwardian Tiled Roof is classic and timeless. The design of the roof is versatile, as it can be adapted, giving the illusion of space as it maximises the room within your converted conservatory.

The contemporary Victorian Tiled Roof allows you to choose where the doors of your converted conservatory are going to be positioned. This can be a great option depending on your conservatory uses and gives an elegant modern style to your house.

Lean To:

Lean-to roofs are a type of roofing configuration that can easily fit existing conservatory roof designs. With its ability to maximise space, this is an excellent solution for room extensions such as kitchens, living or entertainment rooms.

Gable Fronted: 

The Gable Fronted Tiled Roof is a frequently requested style due to the continuous height it brings to your converted conservatory. Making it ideal for getting the most from the roof windows of your conservatory; creating an airy and luminous space.

Double Hipped:

A modern and innovative construction, the Double Hipped Tiled Roof is an excellent alternative to the Lean-to Roof. This type of roof is known for providing a high level of comfort and flexibility and is ideal for a bungalow or house where height is an issue.

Lighting is the key to conservatory transformation ambience

Lighting is one of the most important add-ons for setting a specific mood in a room. 

It can change the whole space and create the perfect atmosphere within your conservatory transformation. 

Lighting can make your conservatory more relaxing or exciting, gloomy or romantic. It can also give the optical illusion of space when fixtures are specifically placed.

Lighting is an easy way to improve your space and be the finishing touch to your conservatory transformation.

It has varied effects on different people, but there are some general lighting tips that everyone should know to use lighting to its full potential.

You may want to consider the colour of your light bulbs. Colours range from warm yellow tones of morning light to cool blue shades at night. 

The colour of your light bulbs will change the whole environment so you might want to experiment with this.

You also need to think about the size of your room and how much space you have available for light fixtures and if you need them to be attentively placed to make your conservatory conversion appear bigger.

With so much choice of lighting, lest we not forget natural lighting options too!

Lighting options for your conservatory transformation:

LED lights

You could use LED lights, which are controlled by a dimmer switch. A dimmer switch is a simple way to control the amount of light that illuminates your converted conservatory. 

There are different types of dimmers you can use, but the most common are rotary dimmers and slide dimmers. But if you want to get flashy, more advanced technologies involve the use of remote control or a smartphone app.

Skylights (Velux or Solstice windows)

Skylights (Velux or Solstice windows) is an effective way to bring more natural light into your conservatory and elegant touch to your conservatory transformation. 

Double glazed for heat and sound protection, skylights are a brilliant lighting option that's both practical and aesthetically appealing. 

Helping with ventilation you also have the added option to install easy use blinds to control the light intensity entering your conservatory.
