1. Will my existing conservatory be strong enough to hold a Solid Roof?
2. Do you have a showroom?
Solid 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.
At point of order, our technical surveyor will visit your home to ensure that your existing frames are suitable.

SolarFrame has the largest conservatory showsite in the region - come and say hello! Barrowfield Road, Goldthorpe, Rotherham, S63 0JF.

Typically, it would take 3 days to install a Solid Tiled roof for a standard sized 4×4 Edwardian conservatory.

Following the installation, the electrician and plasterer would need to visit to complete the job.
