GRP WARM ROOF
STEP 1 -REMOVE OLD ROOF AND INSTALL NEW GRP RAFTERS
First, 'Glass Reinforced Plastic' rafters are added to your existing conservatory window frames, including a GRP structural ring beam, rafters and ridge. GRP is not prone to:
moisture absorption such as traditional timber
thermal bridging such as bulky Aluminium alternatives.
The beginning of your improved conservatory roof insulation.
STEP 3 - CELOTEX INSULATION
Insulated Celotex sheets are snugly fitted with a 15mm gap from the internal Leka sheets. Celotex is one of the UK's leading insulation specialists, providing high value thermal efficiency and BBA certified and a significant benefit in achieving a better conservatory roof insulation efficiency level.
STEP 5 - ROOF TILING
Finally, a high quality Tapco or Metrotile roof is added.
Both Tapco and Metrotile offer a classic roof finish dependant on your property and required cosmetic look.
These lightweight alternatives to concrete tiles or slate really do make the LEKA systems overall finish stand out as much as the main structures attributes do
PRICE MATCH GUARANTEE
Offering the rooftop quality and style for which Metrotile is renowned, Metrotile Shingle, Bond and Roman have been designed with a unique “hidden fix: system that also enables the product to double as an excellent vertical cladding solution.
This is because the hidden-fix design leaves no nail exposed, preventing rainwater from corroding the nails, a common weakness of traditional vertical cladding.Metrotile is available in a variety of colours, and can be fixed from vertical, down to a minimum pitch of 15°.
It is the ideal profile for those looking for a simple and elegant roofing solution.
STEP 2 - INTERNAL LEKA BOARDS
Next, internal Leka sheets are added underneath the GRP rafters. The Leka sheets are 100% waterproof and one third the weight of plasterboard.
These sheets have unique thermal qualities as well, but allow for a traditional plaster skim finish to provide a nice visual aspect ready for painting afterwards.
Leka systems has chosen to utilize the Tapco Slate product range through careful evaluation of all leading brands not just in the UK but throughout the Globe when matching a Slate tile house roof.
Choosing a Tapco material to complete the overall look of your new conservatory roof is as important as the quality and technology beneath the surface and we are proud to work with Tapco to provide this to you.
