There are an estimated 1.5 million conservatories in the UK with a Low Pitch. This is generally accepted as an angle lower than 10-12 degrees. For the owners of this type of conservatory roof, it can be very costly to convert them to a tiled or solid roof and take advantage of the benefits of an insulated conservatory roof conversion.
The reason for this, is that the majority of conservatory warm roof systems offer only metrotiles or tapco slates as options. Although outstanding products, with excellent guarantees and appearance, these tile and slate options are manufactured to require an absolute minimum pitch for the tiles and slates to operate effectively. An owner of a Low Pitched Lean To or other Low Pitched Conservatory roof, would have to consider a full roof redesign to a double hipped edwardian ( incorporating box guttering ) , an upstand at the rear of the roof, or even the new roof being cut into their existing house roof. All of these options involve considerable extra expense and may also require the window frames to be removed and replaced to facilitate a new roof being installed. Britmet Tileform have a perfect solution to this issue, that is suitable for all conservatory roofs with pitches as low as 5 degrees! The Pantile 2000
