Why Lots Of Homeowners Upgrade To A Slate Roof Conservatory

More and more homeowners these days are choosing to upgrade their current polycarbonate conservatory roof to a solid roof option to transform their conservatory into the room they’ve always wanted. A standard polycarbonate roof isn’t always the best option available, and many experience frequent issues with their conservatory which are usually caused by this roofing solution.

When upgrading a conservatory roof, you have lots of different options to choose from, but one that is becoming increasingly popular is a slate roof conservatory. If you don’t know much about this option and you’d like to find out more, keep reading today. Below our team here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions have put together a simple guide covering all of the basics. You can see for yourself why lots of homeowners choose to upgrade to a slate roof conservatory.

What is a slate roof conservatory?

As the name suggests, a slate roof conservatory is a solid roof conservatory that is created using slate. When upgrading your roof, you will keep the foundations of your current conservatory and simply remove the old polycarbonate roof to replace it with a slate option.

To prevent any worry regarding weight and to ensure that your conservatory can hold the new slate roof, at Nu-Look, we use TapcoSlate. This roofing solution looks like traditional slate but is lightweight, as low as 12kg per square metre, making it the perfect material to use.

Why is TapcoSlate so popular among homeowners?

Aside from the fact that TapcoSlate is incredibly lightweight, there are also many additional benefits to choosing this material for your slate roof conservatory;

Authentic look

TapcoSlate is indistinguishable to the untrained eye from natural slate, and it is highly unlikely that once installed, anyone will notice that it isn’t traditional slate. It is manufactured to look as authentic as possible, so the surface is textured, and the edges are riven moulded.

Variety of colours

When you choose TapcoSlate you can choose between six standard colours; chestnut brown, red rock, brick red, pewter grey, plum and stone black, so it is easy to find a colour that perfectly complements you home. These colours are stocked for immediate availability to prevent any delay too.

Increased durability

Unlike traditional slate, TapcoSlate won’t crack or break either. The manufacturing process is designed to make this material incredibly durable, and you can trust that it will provide high performance and longevity for many years to come.

Fully tested

TapcoSlate has been thoroughly tested to BBA, ETA and CE standards, so you can trust that it can withstand everything from wind and rain to driven snow. It is worthwhile pointing out that when testing wind-driven rain, BRW found that TapoSlate performed better than all equivalent materials tested as well.


Because TapcoSlate is so lightweight and an easily-installed product, you can expect the conservatory roof replacement to be completed much quicker. You may even find that installation costs are lower too.

Environmentally friendly

Lastly, homeowners tend to choose TapcoSlate because it is manufactured from recyclable virgin limestone and polypropylene. When selecting this roofing solution, you will be doing your bit for the environment.
