Polycarbonate Roof Prices
Polycarbonate conservatory roof prices range between £3200 & £8115 incl. VAT & Installation.
Polycarbonate is used to construct conservatory roofs because it is a strong and lightweight thermoplastic material. The polycarbonate panels are made up of lots of thin sheets of plastic with air sections to enable the final product to insulate and withstand extreme temperatures.The more layers used to construct the sheets the greater the insulation value. These panels are also available in various tints to reflect heat and add extra shade to your space,making them ideal for conservatories.
Most polycarbonate conservatory roofs are less expensive and easier to handle than the glass versions. As polycarbonate is heat and rain resistant, the panels won’t fade or discolour over time.They’re also virtually unbreakable and should last around 10 to 15 years.
A polycarbonate roof is suitable for a wide variety of conservatory style including
- Gable Fronted
- Double Hipped
The amount you will need to spend on a new polycarbonate roof will depend on the size and style of your conservatory, as well as any extra design features. However, we can tell you that you will pay anything between £3200 and £8115 for an ideal solution.

There is no doubt that polycarbonate conservatory roofs are more affordable but that isn’t the only thing that makes them so desirable. The choice of numerous protective film layers (tints) is another major selling point among homeowners. While all polycarbonate roofs offer the same level of heat retention, the light and solar transmission values vary depending on the finish you go with. That means you can choose how much or little protection you have from heat and sunlight, which is something you don’t get with various other roof types.
A favourable factor with polycarbonate roofs is their excellent resistance to heat and cold. Regardless of how harsh the environment, they will stay their best for an extremely long time. They’re also resistant to snow, rain and sunlight, making them perfect for covering a conservatory.
Another plus point with polycarbonate roofs is their ability to block out ultraviolet rays. Your conservatory will still be flooded with plenty of heat and natural light but you’ll experience less glare. Whether you’re light sensitive or love being surrounded by sunlight, you can prioritise how much light you allow into your room. Just remember the more light you allow the more heat you will gain.
Polycarbonate roofs are cheaper to manufacture and those savings are passed onto you, the consumer. As polycarbonate is easier to handle, transport and install compared to glass and other roof types, the labour costs will be less expensive too.
The polycarbonate panels are available in translucent and opaque shades for better control of light transmission and heat. From clear, bronze and opal to heatguard and bronze/opal, there are plenty of shades to be taken into consideration. You can also select from an extensive range of frames to match the panels or create a contrasting look. White, brown and woodgrain finishes tend to be the most popular but there are other coloured finishes offered by manufacturers.
