Choosing a suitable roof structure is an important part of any conservatory and perhaps even more so in a timber walled conservatory. Traditionally in a timber walled conservatory the roof would be constructed from timber rafters which are finished externally with an aluminium cap and push fit glazing gasket, hip rafters are often lead flashed to weather proof. A Quantal conservatory roof offers so much more to homeowners; because the roof is a complete conservatory roof system no push fit gaskets or lead flashings are required for weather proofing the roof structure. (The roof would still require lead flashing to weather proof against a house wall). Externally the roof has a powder coated finish which is tailored to match the colour of the conservatory, white, cream, green etc. Internally the roof has a unique timber clad, Natural. This internal finish can be stained, varnished or painted just like any ordinary timber to perfectly patch the side frame. The cappings are stained and clipped into place at final fix eliminating any damage.
The roof system has a variety of additional features such as a system specific box valley gutter, valley sections and roof vents.
The roof can be glazed with polycarbonate or glass. In a timber walled conservatory glass is the most popular roof glazing and for this we use Pilkington Active Blue, a self cleaning glass that keeps you warm in winter an cool in summer. (click the Pilkington down load icon for further details).
