As the Lightweight Tiled Roof market grows, there are companies springing up dubbed “clad under clad over merchants”. The method of cladding existing conservatory roofs with insulated plaster boards, quilts, slate lath’s, plywood, and tiles is sighted by the LABC as “something that could become a real danger when snow and wind loads are applied to a structure incapable of carrying the additional weight”.
The LABC readings can be found in the LABC document “Householders guide to re-roofing Conservatories and Porches”. Contained in this document is cautionary advice relating to clad under clad over regarding structural stability and “condensation problems that will inevitability occur by applying plasterboards to the inside of a conservatory with little or no insulation above it.”
