the right roof for the job
Celsius solid roof
We’ve partnered with companies known as the best in their fields to offer you the best solid roof solution available.
A Celsius Solid Roof – an innovative tiled roof system for conservatory retro fits, as well as new tiled conservatory style extensions. Celsius Solid Roof is constructed using highly insulated SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels), deliberately avoiding the use of an aluminium framework to create a truly warm solid roof construction – with no possibility of cold bridging.
Celsius Solid Roofs are bespoke manufactured to precisely meet project requirements and come supplied in kit form for convenient and speedy assembly on site.
The system has been designed using proven, high quality components, supplied by the leading companies in their fields: Synseal Envirotiles (available in Black, Dark Brown or Terracotta colours), Kingspan TEK Building System structural insulated panels (SIPs), Rapierstar stainless steel fixings and optional VELUX roof windows.
Designed to be fast to fit, Celsius Solid Roof can be weathertight in a few hours, and using a patented and environmentally-friendly tile system that does not require battening, installations can be finished quickly, with the minimum of disruption for the homeowner.
An exclusive range of ridge and hip covers complement Synseal’s Envirotiles range. Precisely colour-matched, they are custom-made to exacting Synseal specifications from 100% recycled polypropylene. This uniquely complete roof tiling system means that there is the ideal component for every part of the roof – leading to finished roofs that look better and are complete in less time.
Standard PVC-U fascia and guttering can be used to finish the Celsius Solid Roof – in a range of colours, all supplied as part of the roof kit. However the system can accommodate most fascias and guttering styles if required.
Warmth and comfort
The superior thermal performance of Celsius Solid Roof creates a high quality living space that ensures warmth and comfort, helping to insulate the home, and saving on heating bills.
24/7, 365 days a year use
Celsius Solid Roof, new or replacement building extensions are usable 24/7, 365 days a year, whatever the season, thanks to the high levels of thermal insulation achieved. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, Celsius Solid Roof gives homeowners a true ‘year round room’.
Speed of installation
Custom-made to exact project requirements and delivered in kit form for on-site assembly, Celsius Solid Roof has been carefully designed to be quick and straightforward to install, meaning less homeowner disruption during the building phase and smaller labour costs for the installer.
Inside and outside living
A well-built tiled extension is the design solution that can unlock the potential for both inside and outside living, seamlessly linking homes to gardens to make the most of outdoor spaces.
Value for money
Using proven quality assured roofing components to create a true warm roof construction, Celsius Solid Roof is a solid home improvement investment, delivering excellent value for money.
A contemporary look is guaranteed by fitting a Celsius Solid Roof, transforming the visual impact of an existing traditional-styled glazed roof conservatory.
In the example below the conservatory is north facing and therefore too cold in the winter, By installing a solid tiled roof we have improved the energy efficiency to 0.15W/m2k U-Value as well as converting the building to an impressive extension.
Warm roof construction
The Celsius Solid Roof is constructed using Kingspan TEK Building System SIPS panels. This proven method of warm roof construction eliminates many of the issues that face aluminium skeleton based solutions, as cold bridging has been designed out from inception.
Utilising Synseal’s installation experience, Celsius Solid Roof has been designed to go together easily on-site and help installers deliver a first class, thermally efficient roof in the minimum of time.
Unlike rival systems which employ aluminium rafters, aluminium ridge beams, aluminium eaves ring beams, aluminium valleys and aluminium box gutters similar in design to glazed conservatory roofs, Celsius Solid Roof is a truly warm roof, featuring all timber construction without any metallic ‘cold spots’.
All timber construction
No aluminium skeleton
No chance of condensation build-up
Quick & easy to install
High quality materials guaranteed
Timber thermal conductivity = 0.15W/m2K
Established in 1965, Kingspan is a global leader in high performance insulation, building fabric and solar integrated building envelopes.
Kingspan TEK Building System panels consist of a high performance rigid urethane insulation core, manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP), sandwiched between two layers of oriented strand board type 3 (OSB/3). During manufacture, the insulation core is bonded by autohesion to the OSB/3 facings. This process provides more reliable and superior adhesion than the secondary bonding process used in the manufacture of most other SIPs.
Kingspan Insulation Ltd has secured BBA and NSAI Agrément certifcation for the Kingspan TEK Building System.
Kingspan TEK panel specifcation:
142mm thick structural insulated panels (SIPs)
15mm oriented strand board (OSB)
High performance CFC/HCFC free rigid thermoset urethane foam
Thermal conductivity: Insulation core – 0.023 W/m.K OSB/3 facings – 0.13 W/m.K
Eco conservatory solutions understands that time on-site is money. That is why Celsius Solid Roof is designed to go up fast, with the minimum of fuss. Celsius Solid Roof is weathertight in hours, constructed using SIPs panels that interlock to form both the structure and insulation of the roof as one complete component.
A unique full tile system incorporating ‘Synseal only’ hip and radius end components that don’t require battening or counter-battening, coupled with an internal surface ready for plasterboarding, means that installations are finished quickly, and with as little disruption as possible for homeowners.
Zero to weatherproof in under 3 hours! 3.5 x 3.5m Georgian roof installed by a 2 man installation team.
Celsius Solid Roofs are supplied in purpose-made kits for speed and convenience of installation. Celsius roof framework including the window walling eaves beam is constructed from timber, specially engineered to receive the interlocking SIPs panels. Breather membrane then covers the SIPs panels before the starter soaker and flashing is fitted into place. Interlocking Envirotiles are then quickly fitted into position with a mechanical fixing at each tile head for added security. Envirotiles can also be conveniently mitre cut on-site, before covers are fixed.
Built to last
Synseal’s Celsius Solid Roof system is comprised of 9 standard timber sections
Sections are machined from C24 construction grade structural timber (German white wood)
Standard timber sections are used to form both ridge and hip components
These are bonded with timber adhesive and mechanically fixed in the factory, then cut to length to suit each individual project
The mechanical fixings at the heart of Celsius Solid Roof’s timber construction are Rapierstar low torque universal woodscrews which are specially engineered to reduce wood splitting. These high quality components feature a unique StarformTM thread for quicker screw penetration with no drilling of pilot holes required.
The lean-to is an ever-popular British conservatory style, with a pleasing simplicity to its design providing a spacious and practical building extension solution. Commonly fitted to Houses, lean-to conservatories can be installed with a range of roof pitches from as low as 12.5 ̊ right up to 35 ̊.
The addition of a lean-to extension measuring 5m x 3m to this terraced townhouse is the perfect solution for urban living. With a choice of full height window frames to ensure the homeowner fully benefits from external light, this installation offers many of the benefits of a conservatory (light weight, fast installation) whilst avoiding some of the inconveniences of a full extension project (higher cost, lengthy building work disruptions).
Used as a kitchen, this room has become the hub of the home, an ideal place to bring the family together as the sun starts to set in the early evening. The use of large double doors / bi-folds will transform the room on those days where – weather allowing – they can be fully opened, blending the outside and inside into one beautiful entertainment area.
Gable conservatory designs provide a satisfyingly high internal ceiling height to give an added sense of grandeur and space. Installations can span up to 6 metres in width to deliver a truly spacious extension. Consisting of pitched sides and distinguishable by its elevated at-faced frontage, Gable style conservatories look sensational when fitted with a Celsius Solid Roof.
Contemporary and airy
With its Black tiled roof, this 4m x 5m gabled style extension is both airy and cosy. The high ceiling, glazing right to the ridge on the front face coupled with the dwarf wall, help to maximise the use of space within the extension.
This modern open living space is welcoming to guests and ensures a grand setting for dining, while still being an integral part of the house. The convenient adjacent kitchen area ensures that the hosts can carry on entertaining their guests, even when not seated at the dinner table. Two VELUX roof windows, situated either side of the ridge, are both an attractive feature and a practical design addition, providing some flexible ventilation during warm summer months. Feature lighting has been suspended from the ridge apex – an optional design feature available with Celsius Solid Roof, and provides a focal point to this grand living space.
A Georgian or Edwardian conservatory offers plenty of living space with its practical square or rectangular footprint, which explains why it remains the most popular conservatory style. Older Georgian-style conservatories are ideal for upgrading with a stylish Celsius Solid Roof, giving a much-loved yet tired part of the home a new lease of life.
Some impressive homes feature sizeable conservatories that don’t quite make the grade. However practical, these extensions are now let down by their age and generally downgrade the overall look and value of the property.
This finished conversion of an ageing 5m x 5m Georgian-style conservatory shows what can be achieved with Celsius Solid Roof, without having to start the building from scratch.
Gone is the tired and noisy polycarbonate roof, replaced with attractive tiles that give the impression that this room was part of the house all along. A plastered pelmet running around the perimeter of the room allows for mood lighting and enhances the pleasing size and shape of the installation.
Victorian conservatories, typically featuring three or five shaped facets to the front of the roof and are able to span up to 6 metres in width, present an appealing design that for many of us is the quintessential English-style conservatory. Although the Victorian shape adds complexity, this design can be easily upgraded with a Celsius Solid Roof.
Restoring Victorian splendour
This 4m x 3.5m Victorian-style conservatory might have been a useful addition to the home some years ago, but the passing of time has made it tired. The homeowners found themselves using the room less and less, and generally only when the weather was ‘just about right’, which can prove seldom or not at all, depending on the season. However, with the addition of a retro- fit Solid tiled Roof this installation has now created the perfect living room extension, where adults and children alike can come and relax in total comfort, providing the homeowners with the true ‘year-round’ extra room that they dreamt of.
This installation uses Black tiles to match the property’s original tiled roof, ensuring it blends in perfectly from the outside, and a VELUX roof vent has been added to provide added natural light as well as ventilation during the summer months.
For more than 70 years VELUX has led the world in the development of energy-efficient roof windows of the highest quality and durability
VELUX roof windows
High quality is assured with VELUX, the familiar brand name that is synonymous with roof windows. Our Celsius Solid Roof system is designed to incorporate standard-sized VELUX roof windows finished externally in discreet Anthracite Grey, with an internal finish choice of standard White Polyurethane (perfect for modern interiors and white ceilings) or optional Natural Pine (ideal for traditional interiors) which is protected with triple-coat clear lacquer to preserve the timber of the window.
VELUX roof windows help to maximise the quantity and quality of natural light and ventilation:
- Roof windows provide twice as much daylight as vertical windows and up to three times more daylight than dormer windows (source: Daylight study, Danish Building and Urban Research, 2003).
- As they are angled more directly to the sun,VELUX roof windows (minimum roof pitch 15 ̊) provide direct light with less risk of overshadowing from adjacent buildings.
- Additional ventilation and light can be delivered deep into extensions, to keep the interior spaces bright and airy.
- 10 Year Guarantee.
