Installing a new tiled roof onto a conservatory is a very technical job. You will need to install a new frame, one that is suitable for tiles, to replace the existing frame, and as this new system is most likely going to add weight to the structure. As such your conservatory may require some work done on its walls and foundations to be able to support the new tiled roof.
To eliminate any risk, we highly recommend getting professional help from a reputable specialist such as TCR to check if your conservatory’s existing roof frame is suitable. If it isn’t, it can easily be replaced with a new frame ready for your new tiled roof. While this incurs an extra expense, the peace of mind will be priceless.
