How much does it cost to replace a conservatory roof?

The Ideal Window Solutions team is great at repairing conservatories and conservatory roofs throughout Hampshire and West Sussex, so much so that the service has become really popular. The repair team will need to come out and check your conservatory to see if it can be repaired and, if it can, they’ll give you an individual quote. Even better, Dad says once your conservatory is fixed, he can guarantee the repair for 10 years!

What is the lifespan of a conservatory?

Modern, high performance uPVC conservatories tend to last around 25-35 years - so, if your uPVC conservatory was installed decades ago, it may be time to upgrade it. Aluminium conservatories can last between 30 to 40 years and timber conservatories can last up to 60 years with the right care. Furthermore, contemporary tiled conservatory roofs can last over 50 years with virtually no maintenance involved.

Can uPVC conservatories be repaired?

Quite simply, yes, they can! Unlike other double glazing companies in the area, we have a strict ‘repair before replacement’ policy. Specialising in high-quality uPVC conservatory repairs, our dedicated team are confident they can lengthen the life of your damaged or faulty conservatory without going over budget.

Do you need planning permission for conservatory repairs in a conservation area?

Unless you live in a listed building or your property is subject to an Article 4 direction, it's unlikely you'll need to get planning permission for conservatory repairs. Historic windows and doors of interest should be retained wherever possible. At Ideal Windows, we use careful matching repair techniques to meet and exceed your expectations when it comes to timeless timber or aluminium window and door repairs.
