Why do we use Leka?

We often get asked why we use the Leka conservatory roof system. It’s a good question because we spent a lot of time finding the right solution and there are a number of reasons why Leka ticked all the right boxes.

Support the Ukraine

Help Ukraine now!      Ukrainian cities are being bombed and civilians are being killed.  Millions of Ukrainians have become hostages in their own country. They urgently need emergency humanitarian...

Conservatory Health Check

When did you last give your conservatory a health check? If you haven’t checked on your conservatory lately, or perhaps aren’t even sure what a conservatory check involves, we’ve got news: it’s easy, it won’t take long and it could save you money!

Leka Xi – Modular Conservatory Walls & Base

To complete the Leka suite of products, the Leka Xi can provide a warm, sustainable alternative to a traditional block/brick built conservatory base/wall.

How big is your footprint?

What most people don’t realise is that the biggest source of the carbon footprint you leave, is your home and household emissions. According to Nesta, “domestic energy use accounts for more than 21 % of UK greenhouse gas emissions each year.” The Office for National Statistics claim that households have been the single biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the UK since 2015 and account for almost 28% of the UK’s total emissions.

The glass in my conservatory keeps cracking or breaking!

The last few years have been extraordinary for so many reasons, not least because of Brexit, Covid and climate change. Of course, we’ve all been affected by these massive events and in our world of conservatories, we’ve really noticed the effects of climate change recently. And if you’re having trouble with cracked, broken or damaged glass in your conservatory, it may be that you have too.

To tile or not to tile?

If you’re thinking of refurbishing your conservatory, one of the questions you may have are whether you can tile the roof and if so, whether it’s advisable to do so? So we thought it might be helpful to run through some of the main points to consider:

Is the rain getting you down?

Yup, it’s getting a bit boring now. After all, with summer travel still difficult and all the challenges of the last 18 months, we do all really need some warm sunny weather and some long balmy days spent in the garden.

Check your seals

As the sun finally comes out after weeks of rain, there’s been a collective sigh of relief across the UK. Summer is here at last and if we can’t go on holiday, we can at least enjoy some long sunny days. But that said, if you’re a traditional conservatory owner, things might look a little different.

Where did the sun go?

This time last week we were writing about how to keep cool in a heatwave as temperatures were set to soar over the weekend. Roll forward to today, and we’ve just dug out our flippers and wetsuit! But hey, that’s British weather for you.

Flat Roofs

How do you reduce the noise made by rain in your conservatory?

It’s so frustrating isn’t it? It’s raining and grey outside, so you’ve snuggled up in your conservatory. But the sound of rain on the roof is so loud, you can’t hear the TV, you can’t hear your family speak and at times, it feels like you can’t even hear yourself think.

With tighter COVID 19 restrictions  Can I still get my conservatory roof replaced?

With tighter COVID 19 restrictions Can I still get my conservatory roof replaced?

And is it safe to do so?
This is another question we get asked a lot at the moment and even as we write this, the Government are holding a COBRA meeting agreeing what new restrictions need to be brought in. It would now appear obvious (if it didn’t already) that our lives are going to continue to be restricted for many months to come. So what does that mean in terms of getting work done on your house?

Pros and cons of a replacement conservatory roof

Pros and cons of a replacement conservatory roof

Most traditional conservatories have a glass roof because historically, strict regulations meant conservatories had to have a glass or polycarbonate roof. But in 2010, the regulations were changed to allow other materials to be used. As a result, if you’re not happy with your conservatory at the moment, you now have the option to replace it with a stylish and practical new roof, rather than just demolish it.
