Replacement Conservatory Roof
Leka Roof to outperform as well as outlast common glass and polycarbonate roofing systems. It’s so good it has been approved by JHAI, the approved building inspector licenced by the Government, and our patent-pending technologies lead the way for innovation in the industry.
Below you will find a detailed system break down of the Leka System. This simply provides better conservatory roof insulation and explained in simple terms to help you understand for yourself, how the only roof system of its kind in the world can transform your existing conservatory or enhance your proposed new conservatory project.
Step 1 – GRP Rafters
First, ‘Glass Reinforced Plastic’ rafters are added to your existing conservatory window frames, including a GRP structural ring beam, rafters and ridge. GRP is not prone to:
- wood worm
- moisture absorption such as traditional timber
- thermal bridging such as bulky Aluminium alternatives.
The beginning of your improved conservatory roof insulation.
Step 2 – Internal Leka Boards
Next, internal Leka sheets are added underneath the GRP rafters. The Leka sheets are 100% waterproof and one third the weight of plasterboard.
These sheets have unique thermal qualities as well, but allow for a traditional plaster skim finish to provide a nice visual aspect ready for painting afterwards.
For a more traditional cost effective finish, standard 12.5mm plasterboards can also be utilised as part of the Leka ECO range which (in most cases) doesn’t affect our exceptional U values of 0.15.
Step 3 – Celotex Insulation
Insulated Celotex sheets are snugly fitted with a 15mm gap from the internal Leka sheets. Celotex is one of the UK’s leading insulation specialists, providing high value thermal efficiency and BBA certified and a significant benefit in achieving a better conservatory roof insulation efficiency level.
Step 4 – Outer Sheets
Next, strong, load-bearing and insulated outer sheets are added. These ensure less roofing bars and higher efficiency.
Our Leka outer boards have been engineered to offer:
- A structural alternative to plywood
- A significantly lighter alternative to any other roof covering board
- A 100% waterproof outer covering
- A thermally efficient board
Step 5 – Tiling
Finally, a high quality Tapco or Metrotile roof is added.
Both Tapco and Metrotile offer a classic roof finish dependant on your property and required cosmetic look.
These lightweight alternatives to concrete tiles or slate really do make the LEKA systems overall finish stand out as much as the main structures attributes do.

We may be bias, but we honestly believe that a conservatory can be a great place for celebrating Christmas, whether that’s by setting up a table and inviting family members for Christmas lunch or by gathering round a tree to open your presents.
It’s still only November but excitement about Christmas is building, probably because Covid meant that last year, well, Christmas was a bit of a damp squid for a lot of people.
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.
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.
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:
We often get asked why we use Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) products and what’s so special about them. So we thought it would be helpful to explain.
