    Any views on this mechanism of insulating conservatory roof? Have been looking at replacement roof but perhaps this may be more economical? What are the disadvantages?

    It's all the rage.

    There are slightly differing systems, some involve changing the roof sheets instead or in addition to under insulation. It depends on the loads and the existing roof and wall frame sections being able to take the additional loading.

    Just having to look at it is a major disadvantage with that system. :sick:

    I have a double glazed glass roof on my conservatory. I really can't see the point of having a conservatory if you're going to have a non-transparent roof.

    I like sitting in there in the evenings looking at the stars while having a relaxing drink. Sure it gets a but chilly in there in the winter, but I have an Far Infrared Red (FIR) panel heater which I put on while I'm in there - Really effective and very economical on power.
