Great News from HMRC
In recognition of the very high insulating performance of our system, we qualify for the government incentive lower 5% VAT rate.
This is because the system has been proven to provide impressive energy savings and is helping to significantly reduce the carbon footprint.
Since January 2011, rival systems are VAT rated as 20%, adding an extra £150 per £1000 spent. Would you want to spend so much more on systems that are not recognised as a genuine solution to the temperature control of your conservatory? You will end up paying twice, firstly to install an inferior system, and secondly for the much higher VAT levy that these lesser systems have to charge.

Is climate change affecting the way you use your home?
We’ve all suffered one of the coldest and snowiest winters in recent records, with Meteorologists predicting that extreme weather conditions will be characteristic of UK weather in forthcoming years. Climate change means we are likely to experience more flooding, faster coastal erosion, more heatwaves, droughts and extreme weather events than ever before.
For those of you suffering with a cold conservatory, your quality of life when spending time at home is being needlessly affected by the temperatures outside. Recent snow caused all kinds of pressures in everyday life in regards to shopping and commuting, but did it also keep you feeling cold indoors in your conservatory?
However you use your conservatory, whether it’s as a study, additional living room or playroom, it cannot be fully utilised if it’s too cold in the winter or if your conservatory is too hot in summer.
Let’s face it, feeling comfortable in a cold conservatory is virtually impossible. A quick transition from hot to cold weather is also bad news for conservatory owners. The worst case scenario is that you may be abandoning use of your conservatory as a result of unpredictable weather changes throughout the year.
As home owners, taking action now to manage the impact of climate change makes practical sense. At The Roof Revive Company, we believe that there’s no reason why your conservatory can’t be used all year round, regardless of weather conditions. Conservatory roof insulation is the perfect solution to a cold conservatory and will help you to start enjoying quality time at home.
Our unique conservatory insulation solutions are effective in both the summer and winter and we ensure that our conservatory insulation makes minimum disruption to your existing conservatory roof.
Make your conservatory weather-proof and start using your conservatory in the way you originally intended to! After all, there’s no reason why climate change should change the way you use your home.
How do you use your conservatory?
Here at The Roof Revive Company, we’ve seen many different conservatories that all vary in terms of how homeowners use them. But what is the most popular use for a conservatory? We surveyed a cross-section of 100 people, both our customers and non-customers to find out.
Some of the results might not surprise you. Many of the parents we questioned found their conservatory to be a valuable playroom and felt it was useful to have a room that contained all of their children’s belongings and toys. Not least because it prevented them from stepping on small toys in their living room! Many found their conservatory to be a great, relaxing space to read or look into the garden, whilst nearly 30% used their conservatory as a practical home office.
45% of people said that they had purposefully installed their conservatory to serve as a dining room with one survey respondent commenting, “I often entertain for friends who love the experience of looking out into a stunning night’s sky whilst tucking into my latest culinary masterpiece!”
Other home owners had transformed their conservatory into beautiful and bespoke relaxed seating areas, open plan living spaces, family rooms, breakfast rooms, kitchen/diners, utility rooms, libraries, tea rooms and garden rooms. Plenty of thought had been given to planning the utilisation and decoration of conservatories, with decoration covering a range of classic and contemporary styles.
The people living within the home are obviously a key driver in terms of how a conservatory is used with one respondent stating, “The truth is that our family simply can’t agree on our TV viewing habits. By essentially creating two living rooms, we’ve saved ourselves hours of arguments.”
Some uses for a conservatory were more unusual with 15% of people surveyed stating that their conservatory helped them to undertake their hobbies and interests. The more unusual uses ranged from a piano room to a place to store a valuable antiques collection. One respondent even commented, “My conservatory is the ideal place for my classic railway model”.
Clearly, every conservatory provides its owners with the freedom and flexibility to use this living space in exactly the way they want. But what if your conservatory starts restricting the way in which you want to use it? The problem with many conservatories is that they can get too hot in the summer. Or perhaps you’re finding your conservatory too cold in winter? This occurs because standard polycarbonate roof systems have virtually no conservatory insulation properties.
At Roof Revive, we are experts in conservatory roof insulations systems. Thanks to our innovative conservatory insulation solutions, our clients don’t need to restrict how they use their conservatory in any way.

Conservatory too cold? How the coldest spring on record affects living standards
Incredibly, spring has been colder than winter for first time since 1949. March 2013 was also colder than any month since the ‘big freeze’ of December 2010. In addition, Met Office figures have confirmed that, across the UK, the average 2.5C (36F) temperature was colder than all three winter months for the first time since 1975. Easter Sunday was even confirmed as the coldest Easter on record.
With temperatures below zero in many regions during this time, the freezing conditions disrupted transport and Easter plans for many of us. This unpredictable weather, a direct consequence of climate change, is difficult for even experts to predict long-term.
Although such unusual weather in the UK is impacting us all, unfortunately meteorologists suggest that strange weather patterns may be an aspect of life in the UK that is here to stay.
Such cold weather adversely affects outdoor activities but is also likely to impact day to day living standards too. Many calls we receive here at Roof Revive are from customers who are finding their conservatory too cold to enjoy to its fullest.
This universal problem is being reported by customers of all ages and backgrounds. After making considerable investments in installing, re-decorating or updating their conservatories, pro-longed spells of cold weather mean that people just can’t fully utilise or enjoy their conservatory as a living space. Many conservatories are purpose-built to be used as an extended part of a house, possibly as a dining room, sitting room or play room. Frustrated at not being able to use a cold conservatory, people are fascinated to learn that conservatory insulation is the cost-effective solution.
If your conservatory is too cold, we highly recommend our conservatory insulation solutions. Utilising superior technology, our insulation stabilises the temperature inside a conservatory to keep it comfortably warm in cold weather – no matter what time of year that cold weather spell may occur.
Sparkling spring cleaning tips for your conservatory
If you’re planning a spring clean to banish clutter and get your home back in shape, Roof Revive have some top tips to leave your conservatory sparkling.
A conservatory can be a truly beautiful, tranquil and relaxing living space but not if it’s becoming untidy. Start off by considering your current approach to storage. Are you using storage items or furniture to its best advantage? An effective storage item such as a dresser for crockery or a stool that hides your DVD collection might be just what you need to create additional tidiness whilst adding smart, new decorative touches.
Often ignored are the corners of your conservatory. Could you use a corner to carefully store garden equipment, meaning such items are easily at hand if you need them but are kept out of the way at other times? For other storage solutions, consider investing in some new lightweight garden furniture that offers additional storage features or a new bookshelf that can be positioned against a wall to take up less of your valuable conservatory space.
You may also wish to re-arrange your furniture to maximise your existing space, replace old furniture or add some small new accessories such as pictures, ornaments or lamps to create a new and vibrant feel and give your conservatory a mini ‘face lift’. After all, a conservatory is an important extension of your home.
Spring is also the ideal time to give your conservatory a thorough cleaning. Keeping glass spotless is often an important concern for those with conservatories. There is lots of specialist cleaning products on the market, although plain old vinegar has proved itself to be highly effective. You will be amazed at how just cleaning the glass will provide a brighter appearance. Give the exterior of your conservatory, including the roof and gutters, a clean too to prevent against weather damage.
We also recommend the start of spring and end of autumn as the best times to clean your conservatory to keep it in the best possible condition. This is to clear away all dirt caused by weather conditions and ensure you maximise the amount of light you are letting in.
And whilst you’re thinking of home improvement, consider how comfortable you are with the temperature within your conservatory. If like many conservatory owners, you experience a conservatory too hot in summer and too cold in winter; Roof Revive can offer the perfect conservatory insulation solutions for your home. We pride ourselves on innovative conservatory roof systems that offer superior insulating properties, keeping you comfortable in your conservatory during spring and beyond.
