You’ve been looking forward to transforming your conservatory into your perfect space. An extra room in your home that you can use all year round that doesn’t suffer from extremes of temperatures and keeps out external noises so you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity you need.

If you’re about to finally invest in a conservatory roof replacement, you’re bound to be feeling excited.

But you might also feel slightly apprehensive about the impact on your home and the disruption to your daily life while your conservatory roof replacement is being installed.

In this post, we’ll run through some hints and tips on preparing and caring for your home while your conservatory is being transformed into the room of your dreams.

Plan ahead and understand the schedule

As with a lot of things in life, preparation is the key to success when you’re looking after your home during a conservatory roof replacement.

By clearly understanding what to expect, you’ll be able to adjust your routine so that there is minimum disruption to your daily life.

It’s important to speak with your conservatory roof replacement specialist to understand your transformation's timeline, the work schedule, and the people that are likely to be working on your property.

You might want to ask your conservatory roof replacement partner which days are likely to be the noisiest or most disruptive so you can plan to be away from the house during those periods.

At Projects4Roofing, before we start any solid roof conservatory project, we share a detailed day-by-day schedule. This includes a breakdown of the work that will be completed on each day and the people you can expect on-site.

This helps you gain a clear understanding of what to expect so you can plan accordingly.

Dust will try and reach every corner

Any conservatory renovation creates dust. There’s no way around it. But there are things you can do to prevent the dust from your insulated conservatory roof installation from reaching other areas of your home.

The first thing to do is to try and separate your conservatory from the rest of your home. If there are doors that connect your conservatory to other rooms in the house, try to make sure they remain closed during your solid conservatory roof installation.

If there is a gap between your doors and the floor, consider blocking it with a towel, cloth, or draught excluder. This can help prevent dust from sneaking in through the cracks.

You should also make sure the installation team is aware of your wishes for doors to remain closed during the conservatory roof replacement project so they don’t open them by mistake.

If you have an open-plan conservatory, preventing dust from your conservatory renovation from reaching other areas of your home can be more challenging.

One cost-effective solution to limit the impact of dust is to hang plastic sheets as a temporary barrier between your conservatory and other rooms in your home. You’ll want to make sure the plastic is securely fastened at the top and bottom to avoid any dust sneaking through.

At Projects4Roofing, we help homeowners separate their conservatory from the other rooms in the house during the site set-up phase of our installations.

You might also consider discussing boundaries with your conservatory roof replacement installation team to ensure they know which areas of your home are off-limits during the project.

Look out for your furniture

You may be planning on a whole new suite of furniture once your conservatory roof replacement project is completed.

Or you may already have a beautifully decorated conservatory with the furniture of your dreams.

Either way, removing all furniture from your conservatory is essential before our roofing specialists get to work.

Not only does this prevent your furniture from being damaged during your conservatory transformation, but it also gives the installation team the space and freedom to focus on delivering the highest quality work without having to navigate obstacles.

If you need help moving your furniture into another area of your home during your conservatory roof replacement, the team at Projects4Roofing can assist you during the site set-up stage.

If you don’t have space in your house or garage for your conservatory furniture, there are often low-cost storage pods available that can store your furniture temporarily on your driveway or in your garden.

Be prepared for the unexpected, and approach things one day at a time

No matter how well prepared you are, having any kind of conservatory renovation work completed can be disruptive to your daily life.

It’s one of the reasons we deliver a high-quality conservatory transformation as quickly as possible – often in as little as eight days.

But during this short period, you might find that the noise of drilling or construction is more bothersome than you anticipated. Or that having a team of roofing specialists in your house distracts you from calls in your home office.

It’s worth having ‘backup’ options like working from a co-working space or visiting friends and family if you find that staying in your home during the day throughout the project is distracting.

Despite all your careful preparation, you may also find dust entering other rooms in your home during the conservatory renovation. A quick vacuum at the end of every day can often be enough to help keep on top of the issue.

Remember that the renovation work is only for a short time, and at the end of it, you’ll have the solid roof conservatory of your dreams that you can use all year round!
