Promo code: COOL20







A conservatory is a fantastic way to bring the outdoors in, but a traditional sloping roof can feel a little dated. If you're looking to refresh your space and give it a sleeker, more modern look, you might have wondered if converting to a flat roof is the answer. But is it possible? And what exactly are you getting into?

At Ecozenic, we want to help you make the best choice for your conservatory. Below, we’ll explore everything you need to know about putting a flat roof on your existing sunroom, from its feasibility and benefits to the things you need to consider before taking the first step.

Is it possible to put a flat roof on a conservatory?

Absolutely! Replacing your existing conservatory roof with a flat roof is a straightforward process that can usually be completed in less than a week. It's a popular choice for homeowners across the UK because of the many benefits it comes with, which we’ve outlined in the next section.

What are the benefits of putting a flat roof on your conservatory?

Flat roofs are commonly chosen by homeowners looking for a modern and functional extension to their home. Here are some of the key benefits:

  • Flat roofs have a clean and sleek look that complements contemporary architectural styles.
  • Unlike pitched roofs that cut into headroom, flat roofs offer a more spacious and airy feel, creating a larger volume for you to utilise.
  • Flat roofs typically require less material and labour to install compared to pitched roofs, translating to lower costs. They’re also generally easier and cheaper to maintain.
  • Modern flat roof systems can be very well insulated, contributing to better heat retention in the winter and cooler temperatures in the summer.
  • Flat roofs can include skylights or roof lanterns, bringing in more natural light and creating a brighter and more open feel to your conservatory. You can also explore options for incorporating a roof terrace or garden.
  • The flat surface of a conservatory roof is easier to access for cleaning and repairs compared to a pitched roof.

What do you need to consider when planning a flat roof conversion for your conservatory?

Before diving into a new roof project, there are a few key things to think about. Talking them through with your installer will help ensure you get a roof that fits your needs and lasts for years to come:


Unlike pitched roofs that naturally shed water, flat roofs rely on a slight incline and a well-designed drainage system to prevent water from pooling and causing leaks. When discussing your project with a conservatory installer, make sure they have a proper drainage plan for your specific design.


Maintaining comfortable temperatures year-round is important in any conservatory. Modern flat roof systems use advanced insulation materials to keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but it's still a good idea to talk with your installer about insulation options during the consultation period. This will help make sure your conservatory is energy-efficient and comfortable all year round.

Maintenance needs

Flat roofs might need a bit more regular maintenance compared to pitched roofs, but their flat surface makes them easier to access and work on. This maintenance can include clearing debris like leaves and twigs and checking the drainage system to make sure it's working properly. Don’t forget to discuss maintenance with your installer to learn more about what’s needed.
