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.
Faster Build Speeds
An advantage to our lightweight conservatory roof has over the competition is it is MFA approved, which allows building applications to be fast-tracked in most cases. This speeds up the build and is one of the reasons why installers love our system.
Increased Efficiency & Longevity
The Leka, tiled conservatory roof is far superior to competitor systems. It delivers the performance, efficiency and longevity of your normal roof, and crucially, a material match. You can have a concrete effect or slate effect tile in a wide range of colours.
Why Choose A Leka Conservatory Roof Conversion?
A truly lightweight tiled conservatory roofing system (no smoke screens). We do not brand the new LEKA System as a lightweight roofing system without having the facts to back it up, whilst other products/materials actually weigh nearly double that of a traditional glass conservatory roof.
No outer plywood needed
Removing the usual need for an outer plywood material which again is open to deterioration over a period of time and replacing with the new LEKA structural, 100% weatherproof, lightweight and insulated boarding system reduces the overall weight of the roofing system and improves the overall U values of the finished product. This is complemented with a breathable membrane for additional weather proofing.
Using either a Metrotile OR Britmet lightweight sheet for your outer finish of your new sunroom or a Tapco OR Britmet Lite slate alternative you can rest assured that the product provides a better lifespan to a heavy alternative tile and is lighter than that of concrete or traditional slate.
AND COMES WITH A 40 YEAR WARRANTY
More innovation less complexity
With innovative products throughout and combining insulated sheets with PIR insulation the LEKA system has less elements to install onsite which speeds up your installation timings with average installation only taking 2-3 days including removal of your old conservatory roof.
Glass reinforced plastic
Using GRP or glass reinforced plastic allows a structurally tested, lighter alternative to aluminium and timber when providing the main structural roof rafters. GRP is not at risk of sweating /condensation or cold bridging like aluminium. Nor is GRP open to wood worm, moisture absorption or potential rotting such as timber. The Leka System Structural profiles are manufactured and comply with BS EN13706.
Leka insulated board
With our own Leka insulated finishing board replacing the need for plasterboard as the internal finish prior to plastering, this new innovative board is a third the weight of a plasterboard and insulated at the same time. 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.
Weighing within 10-12% of a traditional glass roof
Average Leka system roofs weigh within 10-12% of a traditional glass conservatory roof which allows (in most cases) your existing conservatory frames to take the weight of your new Leka roofing system.
Improved energy efficiency
Having a load bearing structural insulated and weatherproof outer sheet allows the use of less roofing bars and so our roof bars can be spaced further apart which reduces weight and also improves energy efficiency levels.
The Leka Roof is designed to outperform as well as outlast common glass and polycarbonate roofing systems. It’s so good it has been approved by MFA, the approved building inspector licenced by the Government, and their patented technologies lead the way for innovation in the industry.
