If you’re investigating for resolutions to a leaking conservatory roof, you’ve landed in the right place. Read on to discover how you can update your conservatory and ensure that your leaky conservatory roof is a thing of the past.

There are 3 choices available that address a leaking conservatory roof depending on your funds, the condition and age of your conservatory:

  • Repair the leaking conservatory roof
  • Conservatory roof replacement
  • Transform your conservatory into an extension

If your conservatory roof is leaking, you may be able to get the leak repaired. Firstly, you need to determine why the roof is leaking. At Realistic ware are your local experts who are here to help. Your leaking conservatory roof may be due to a defective installation or product (if the conservatory is new), or perhaps the glazing has relocated over time. Realistic use Ultraframe conservatory roof systems, which prevent leaks by using robust glazing systems that do not slip over time. Ultraframe roofs are also come with a warranty for up to 10 years, so if on the off chance, there is an issue, your local Ultra Installer (us) will repair any faulty parts within the period. 

If, however, the glazing has moved, other panels may likely begin to beak down, and it might be better to look at other more long-term selections as follows.   



You can also opt for a replacement conservatory roof. Replacing the roof can have a dramatic effect on the thermal performance of the conservatory. As heat rises, the majority of heat loss in a conservatory occurs through the roof. Similarly, most of the heat gain will happen through the roof as the sun shines down through the glass or polycarbonate panels. Glass technology has advanced in recent years and continues to do so. No matter what age your conservatory is, there will be a better specification of glass that will reduce temperature fluctuations – or you could choose a solid roof. As your local Ultra Installer, we will assist you in selecting the right glazing combination. Whether you choose an entirely glass roof or glazed panels in a solid roof to replace your leaking conservatory roof. 



Many people choose to transform their conservatory into an extension. After the lockdown, we all needed more space at home, with many looking for a working space, so transforming a leaking conservatory into an all-year-round usable extension that could be opened to the rest of your house is a cost-effective way to do this.

With the right conservatory extension design, your room can be the same temperature as the rest of the house as you re-design your room from the base up. Replace dwarf walls, or build on top of them with the New Hup system, replace old window frames with high performance glass, add super insulated columns that will have a dramatic impact on the energy efficiency of the walls and windows and you can then choose a high performance glass roof or a solid roof. 

The design options are endless, add bifolding or Patio sliding doors or French Doors that bring the outside into opening walls to a kitchen to create a lovely kitchen extension.    



The Ultraframe classic roof collection is ideal for replacing a leaking conservatory roof as it is highly configurable. This means it can be engineered to be installed on any conservatory shape or style, no matter how complex. The UK’s preferred glass roof is simple to install and comes with a range of high performing glass choices, extremely robust glazing stops and gaskets to prevent a conservatory roof leaking ever again. 

Adding an extra element of cosiness to your conservatory, you can combine the roof with an internal insulated pelmet. Plaster boarded then skimmed on the inside, the pelmet reduces heat loss whilst providing a useful place for spotlights and speakers too.



If you have a leaking conservatory roof and really want to improve the energy efficiency of your conservatory yet keep plenty of natural light, then the hybrid Livinroof could well be the answer. Looking more like a traditional conservatory roof from the outside, you can specify which panels are solid insulated and which ones you would like to be glazed. This provides natural light where it is required ensuring your updated conservatory is both warm and bright.



If you’re looking at your leaking conservatory roof and prefer it to be a tiled roof like the rest of the house, then look no further than Ultraroof. This tiled roof is light enough to fit onto your existing frames or can be combined as part of a complete room transformation. This solid roof is highly insulate also allowing full height glass panels to ensure your room and adjoining rooms are well lit. Unlike other solid roofs, Ultraroof never needs a tie bar, it has a pelmet lifting the design into a beautiful, vaulted ceiling. Your old leaking conservatory roof can be transformed into a tiled roof in just a matter of days.
