Signs Your Conservatory Needs a Refurbishment

Your conservatory should be a relaxing room that extends your living area and increases your property’s value. However, all too often, it can become a neglected space that no longer meets your needs. If your conservatory is in need of some TLC but you don’t have the funds for a complete rebuild, a conservatory refurbishment could be the answer. From upgrading doors and windows to carrying out a conservatory roof replacement, a conservatory refurbishment can help you make the most of this space all year round.

But how do you know when a refurbishment is necessary? Here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions, we’ve compiled a list of the warning signs that indicate it’s time for a change.

old conservatory - signs that it needs refurbishment



Mould is typically caused by excessive condensation creating a damp environment that provides the perfect conditions for mould spores to grow. Not only is this unpleasant to look at, but it can also cause serious health complications and lead to respiratory problems.

If you’ve noticed mould in your conservatory, this could be because your windows and doors are poorly insulated, making them particularly prone to condensation. In this situation, you must act quickly to prevent further damage and it may be best to replace your conservatory doors and windows with a modern, energy-efficient alternative.



If the doors and windows of your conservatory are poorly sealed or single-glazed, this could be allowing cold air to infiltrate your home. Not only does this mean there’s a constant chill in the air, but it also reduces energy efficiency, contributes towards mould growth and makes your conservatory an unpleasant place to spend time.

If your conservatory is fitted with a polycarbonate roof, this could also be allowing draughts inside. UV rays can cause this material to degrade, meaning it becomes brittle and prone to gaps and cracks. If you’ve noticed that your conservatory feels colder than usual, or you can hear the telltale whistles and rattling noises that indicate a draught, the time may have come to think about a conservatory refurbishment.


It looks worn

Over time, constant exposure to the elements and UV rays can take its toll on your conservatory, particularly if it’s fitted with a polycarbonate roof. If your conservatory is beginning to look a little tired and shabby, it may benefit from a refurbishment. Not only would this revitalise the space and make it a room that you actually want to spend time in, but it could prevent these worn areas from developing into significant damage further down the line.


No longer using the space

Adding a conservatory to your home is a big investment, so naturally you’ll want to make the most of it and spend as much time in there as possible. However, if your conservatory is fitted with a polycarbonate roof or single-glazed doors and windows, this lack of insulation may lead you to avoid this space as it’s too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. A conservatory refurbishment can help you combat this problem and, by replacing the doors, windows and roof, ensure your conservatory remains at a comfortable temperature all year round.


Increased energy bills

As mentioned above, polycarbonate conservatory roofs offer very little in the way of insulation. This can result in your conservatory being freezing cold in the winter, meaning you have to pay extra to heat the space. By refurbishing your conservatory with a solid conservatory roof replacement from Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions, the U-value of your roof is slashed right down to 0.14W/m²K, offering exceptional temperature regulation and leading to a decrease in energy bills.
