Replacement Conservatory Roof

Leka 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
  • condensation
  • 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:

  1. A structural alternative to plywood
  2. A significantly lighter alternative to any other roof covering board
  3. A 100% waterproof outer covering
  4. 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.

Improved Insulation & Reduced Glare

If you have a glazed or polycarbonate roofing system on your conservatory, you may find the space too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. The reason for this is poor roof insulation. It is also common for homeowners to find glare in the winter and summer unbearable. The Leka System solves both these issues with proper insulation set into a solid, tiled conservatory roof. This creates a more usable space year-round.
All of our Leka Systems installers have taken part in an approved installer course that ensures they are fully qualified and conversant with how the system goes together as well as the key component structure requirements to ensure the 40 year warranty is provided.
