LivinRoof is a thermally efficient conservatory roof
What is LivinRoof?
LivinRoof is an alternative to the glass or polycarbonate roof which many conservatories have been built with. It is one of the first roofing systems to seamlessly combine solid and glazed roofing which allows the conservatory to be more thermally efficient, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It is constructed from Kingspan insulation and insulated composite external panels. The roof system can also be tailored to insert glass panels wherever you like, to maximise the light entering into the room. Outside the roof is finished in a grey colour but inside the room still has plenty of natural light.
Will LivinRoof fit onto my existing conservatory?
Yes, LivinRoof can act as a roof replacement for any conservatory. It can also be used when constructing a living and light-space extension, so anyone can benefit from this new roofing system.

• Bring light into rooms in the house that would otherwise be darker with a solid roof
• You can TV in the LivinRoof extension without suffering problems with glare whilst having the benefit of natural light
