Yes. The addition of an Icotherm tiled roof can make your room up to 90 percent warmer in winter and 70 percent cooler in summer. Additional benefits include reduced noise pollution and no solar glare.

In most cases Yes. An Icotherm tiled roof is fully compliant to building control regulations. Icotherm is system approved with building inspectors to simplify the building certificate process. Talk to your installer for more information.

No. An Icotherm tiled roof conservatory is only marginally heavier than a glass roof. As per LABC guidelines (April 2016), if the structure shows no signs of distress, the existing foundations are likely to be adequate to carry the small additional loadings. Existing glazing and door support must also be reinforced.

There isn’t a style of roof Icotherm hasn’t been able to make and with a choice of both internal and external finishes we always have the solution for you.

As with all solid roofs, you might will lose between 5-10 percent of light. However, with a plaster ceiling painted white and the addition of ceiling lights, Velux roof windows, or the Icoview glass panel option it is unlikely you will notice any difference (other than not having to suffer through the unpleasant glare in the summer)

Very much so, which is why the Icotherm roofs are designed as a fully ventilated systems and use timber, which is both strong and has a low thermal conductivity.

Recent testing proved a 6.4m x 6.4m Icotherm roof could carry the weight of four modern Mini cars without showing any signs of movement. When standing on the roof take care of where you step or apply pressure to ensure tiles do not get damaged.
