Geoghegan Conservatory Conversions have fitted countless conservatory roof conversions throughout every corner of Ireland over the past 6 years, to every shape and size of conservatory. During this time we have found through our customers that, in general, most conservatories are simply too cold in winter and too hot in summer to be usable year round. This leads to unnecessary wasted space within the home. A Geoghegan Conservatory Roof Conversion is a proper roof, rather than simply the thermal blinds or poly-carbonate roof inserts that are on the market to improve the usability of your conservatory.
The roofing system’s insulating properties are far superior and with it, the control of the temperature inside your conservatory becomes easy. Each Geoghegan Conservatory Roof Conversion is accompanied by a full Structural Engineers Report, and uses only high performance materials throughout, from the advanced lightweight, tiled roofing system to the fully insulated and finished interior ceiling.
