The LivinROOF roofing system is constructed from insulated composite external panels and Kingspan slab insulation, which are strong and robust yet extremely thermally efficient.


The Structure of the roof utilises a Classic roof system to provide strength and rigidity.


At Durham Design, we understand the importance of natural light in any home extension. The great feature of LivinROOF is that it can incorporate one, or a number of glazed panels that allows daylight to penetrate deep into your room, making the space instantly brighter.


The glass panels can be inserted to replace any of the aluminium roofing panels, in any shape enabling you to maximise the light in your room to produce a very contemporary design not easily achievable with other types of roofing system.


Internally the LivinROOF is stunning. It can deliver a magnificent vaulted ceiling and incorporate an Orangery soffit around the perimeter, where down lights can be installed.


If a vaulted ceiling isn't for you then there is an option of a suspended ceiling, allowing you to continue the ceiling height from an adjoining room or to give your room a more 'cosy' feel.

Glass Roof

Times have moved on from the typical polycarbonate roofs, which were quite efficient in their day. One of the best ways to 'refresh' your existing conservatory is to replace the polycarbonate roof with a new high performance glass roof.


High performance glass has three main properties always ensure your roof features these properties;


  • Has great thermal performance. For roof glass, the target is to have a 'U' Value as low as possible, typically as low as 1.0 is possible in double glazed units.


  • Solar control - it is possible to exclude up to 83% of the suns energy with the correct specification.


  • Self cleaning. The best high performance units use the energy of the sun to burn off organic deposits like bird poo and fingerprints whilst the smooth coating allows water to 'sheet off' the surface, cleaning the dust and debris as it flows.


  • Advances in glass technology mean that a conservatory is not just a 'greenhouse' attached to the back of your property. The glass can be very thermally efficient and can reduce sun glare enabling you to use your conservatory all year round.
