Will an insulated ceiling reduce outside noise from rain?
Will an insulated ceiling eradicate condensation and damp?
2Hot2Cold insulated ceilings are specifically designed to include discreet air vents and space to allow your conservatory to breathe. It will also keep the warmth in your conservatory all year round greatly reducing the opportunity for damp and condensation to form. And because your conservatory is nice and snug in the winter, you don’t feel the need to have to shut the doors so much.
How long does it take to fit an insulated ceiling?
How should I check the condition of my conservatory
Check that your roof panels are well fitted and form a level and uniform surface which doesn’t lift up.
Ensure your roof joists are of equal depth to allow a level ceiling to be fitted. This is particularly important if your conservatory is a self-build, so please check that it has not been built using different sized joists.
If you have any doubt about the condition of your conservatory please email us photographs. We can carry out a free survey to put your mind at rest.
In our experience, a conservatory is unlikely to be in good condition if it’s 15+ years old and hasn’t been maintained. If the conservatory is in a poor condition when we arrive on site and we cannot install your ceiling, we will not be able to return your deposit.

What ventilation does an insulated conservatory ceiling require?
When installing a 2Hot2Cold ceiling on a timber framed conservatory our fitters install air vents into internal ceiling support joists. These air vents allow air to freely circulate between the conservatory roof and 2Hot2Cold’s PVC-U ceiling panels. Airflow is necessary because timber frames allow heat to be absorbed into the ceiling cavity and this can build up into hotspots. Air vents allow this heat to be evenly distributed across the entire ceiling cavity preventing a build-up of heat in one area.
