What is the Roof Revive system and how does it work?
If you want to know how efficient a building is in terms of retaining heat you have to look at its "U" value, also known as the overall heat transfer coefficient.
The better the building is insulated, the lower the "U" value.
The u-values for standard polycarbonate and glazed roofs are very high. This is why most conservatories are uncomfortably hot in the summer, when solar heat is conducted into the room, and cold in the winter, when all the heat disappears off outside.
But a conservatory with the Roof Revive Conservatory Roof system has a low "U" value; so it will be cooler when it is warm outside, and easier to heat during the winter.
We achieve this stunning result using a lightweight 28 mm high performance composite insulation made up of 19 layers of reflective and insulating materials. Cross ventilation prevents condensation, or ‘sweating’, of the structure.
Following careful installation, the roof is finished with 10 mm plasterboard and skim finish. The customer can then apply a decorative finish to complete the installation.
No alteration is made to the existing conservatory roof or to its vaulted profile and only a minor 50mm (approx) reduction in headroom is incurred.

How does Roof Revive SuperQuilt Work?
Due to the special composition of multi-layers of insulation, Roof Revive SuperQuilt effectively deals with all forms of energy transfer (i.e. conduction, convection and radiation). Roof Revive SuperQuilt works most effectively by reflecting infra-red radiation. This means that not only is Roof Revive SuperQuilt effective in winter by reflecting heat back into the building and cold out, but also in summer, Roof Revive SuperQuilt is a very effective solar over-heating barrier reducing the need for artificial cooling systems, preventing uncomfortable build up of heat in the building.
Polycarbonate Roof Application
Glass Roof Application
Roof Revive SuperQuilt is applied directly from the roll either vertically or horizontally depending on rafter spacing, pulled tight and stapled at min 300mm centres.
Roof Revive SuperQuilt will be overlapped at each joint by approx 50mm and stapled to temporarily hold insulation in place. The joints sealed using foil tape. Additionally at the eaves the Roof Revive SuperQuilt will be cut and sealed to the plastic fascia with foil tape.
The plaster board is fixed over the Roof Revive SuperQuilt and onto the timber battens in the usual manner.
