Lightweight Conservatory

Roof Specialists

Covering Essex & Ipswich

Conservatories look great on houses but most homeowners do not use them nearly as often as they would like because the roof makes the feature overly hot in summer and too cold in winter.

Here at NB Contracts, we can replace that roof with an energy-efficient alternative that will resolve both problems and fix the other common issue of rain pounding loudly on the glass during inclement weather.

Our NB Contracts replacement conservatory roof uses a ‘warm roof’ system comprising of solid tiles that allow you to maintain the ideal ambient temperature in all weather conditions, saving on fuel bills and ensuring the conservatory can be used all-year around.

Lightweight Conservatory Roofs

We offer the choice of one of two tiling designs. The first combines limestone and PVC to create a slate effect, while the other uses a coat of aluminium-stone powder to create the look of concrete. Both come in a range of colours, allowing you to match conservatory roof to your home, so that it looks like an extension of the property.

Suitable for existing conservatories, new-build conservatories and orangeries, the roof takes a relatively short time to install, is sold with a 40-year guarantee and complies with the industry’s thermal and structural standards – following insulation testing, it has been given U-values of 0.18 (England and Wales) and 0.15 (Scotland), making it better at retaining heat than any of the rival products on the market.

A member of our team would be happy to visit you to help on any aspect of its design or installation.

Lightweight Conservatory Roof Styles

Our lightweight conservatory roofs can be supplied and fitted in a range of shapes and sizes to replace your existing conservatory roofs, and an array of colours to compliment your home.


The Victorian conservatory is one of the most popular designs on the market and loses none of its aesthetic appeal when the glass or polycarbonate roof is replaced with our more efficient alternative.


The elegant Edwardian conservatory is popular for the way in which it uses a high ceiling and large floor space to maximise the interior space.

Lean To

Our replacement lean-to roof suits all types of property from bungalows to terraced houses, including those with restricted space under the eaves, which made it impossible to accommodate a conservatory.

Apex / Gable

Inspired by the roof most commonly used on houses, our energy-efficient apex or gable conservatory roof maximises the space within the conservatory through its high-vaulted design.

P-Shape / T-Shape

We can also provide individually designed roofs tailored to your conservatory.

Orangeries / Bespoke

Create a living space with the wow factor! Our Orangeries are bespoke and amazingly affordable.



Fall in love with your conservatory again, save money on fuel bills, increase the value of your home, and have a room that you can enjoy all year round, whatever the weather.
