Your uPVC ceiling option

Conservatory ceiling insulation with a uPVC finish can add a light, airy, open look while retaining the 'feel' of a traditional glass conservatory.

So, what is uPVC?

The 'PVC' in uPVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride - a chemical compound derived from naturally occurring raw materials of natural gas, petroleum and common salt.

The 'u' stands for 'unplasticised'. This means that no chemical plasticizers have been added to soften the material. uPVC is widely used in conservatories because it's easily shaped under heat. Also when extra support is needed, metal rods can be incorporated within the structure. And it looks great!

The benefits of uPVC for you

When you choose uPVC as a cover for your insulated conservatory ceiling, you'll enjoy a bright, light and airy space created by sunlight reflected from the uPVC surface. Plus, uPVC is a very low-maintenance material that will only need minimal attention after installation.

The uPVC-panel ceiling will be installed inside your existing conservatory roof, hiding the insulation from the interior and helping dramatically decrease seasonal temperature fluctuations.

Installing your uPVC ceiling

When we arrive at your home, our installation works will look like this:

  1. Our skilled fitters will start by conducting a Conservatory Health Check/Survey when they arrive at your property.
  2. For glass roof panels, we'll attach Protective UV Window Film to the underside. If you have a polycarbonate roof, this step is not necessary.
  3. Next, we'll attach a set of treated timber batten frames to the existing conservatory roof framework.
  4. We'll then apply our top-of-the-line 'Ecohome EcoQuilt Expert' or 'EcoQuilt 45' insulation, which has 11 multiple layers of foils and wadding. This helps prevent condensation and reduces heat loss by up to 95%. It also provides excellent sound insulation.
  5. This upgrade to our premium 11 layer EcoQuilt45 multi-foil insulation is absolutely free from March 1st to 31st May 2024!
  6. To secure the insulation in place, we'll attach a second set of timber batten frames, ensuring a tight and sag-free fit.
  7. For the finishing touch, we'll add lightweight uPVC Plastic Tongue and Groove Panelling in white, or if you prefer, a plaster finish ready for painting. Please note that a plaster finish is not recommended for conservatories with polycarbonate panels.
  8. With a UPVC finish, you'll receive a 10-year guarantee. A plasterboard finish comes with a 5-year guarantee.
  9. Finally, we'll clean up after ourselves by thoroughly vacuuming and wiping down all sides and removing all waste and rubbish.
  10. When we leave, we will have transformed your conservatory into a cozy living space that you can enjoy all year round. No planning permission is required for internal insulation and our work is LABC and BBA approved for your peace of mind.
  11. If you have any questions about the process, please just ask us or one of the fitters on the day.
