TapcoSlate Classic roof tiles mirror the desirability and natural detail of slate but have all the benefits and practicality of a modern product. They are authentically shaped with textured surfaces and edges moulded from authentic slates, this makes them almost indistinguishable from natural slate. They do not crack, break or delaminate and provide durability, performance, and longevity. With their authentic appearance, durability and lightweight nature they are an ideal roof tile for a new Oakdene insulated conservatory roof.
U-values express the rate of heat transfer through any element of a building, such as a wall, roof or window. The units used to express U-values are watts per m² Kelvin (W/m²K). This means that if a roof had a U-value of 1.0 W/m²K, for every degree of temperature difference between the air on the surface inside the roof and the air on the surface outside, 1 watt of heat would pass through any m² of the roof.
The lower the U-value is, the better the insulation provided by the material. Read more
Research at Cranfield University has shown that the average south-facing conservatory reaches a comfortable temperature for only two hours a day
The linked article from the Property Advice section from The Telegraph gives some interesting information on the usefulness of a conservatory and urges caution on the practice of under and over cladding an existing roof, for multiple reasons.
They advise removing the glazing altogether and fitting a proper roof, which is exactly what we do at Oakdene Roofs!
We recently attended a GRP Waterproofing System training course held by Cure It, the UK’s leading GRP flat roofing system provider.
This course has helped develop our extensive knowledge of flat roofing techniques, enabling us to provide a range of new rainwater gulley’s to eliminate the need for a box guttering which are intrusive into the conservatory. This seamless system looks like a traditional lead gulley yet has all the benefits of a modern fibreglass system.
