Create a room that you can use all year-round
Looking to upgrade a glazed conservatory roof, or need to extend your property with a room that gives you that homely feel?
The Icotherm roof solutions offer you all the options you need for a standard conservatory roof replacement or a bespoke new build to match your property. Your Icotherm roof can include Velux windows, panoramic glass panels or lanterns.
Combining an effective breather membrane with ventilation above the insulation provides a belt and braces approach to prevent the risk of condensation occurring. Extreme changes in the weather and high humidity that can be caused during everyday activities in the home can increase the possibility of condensation building up in the roof structure that can lead to damp. The Icotherm System tackles the problem to remove any moisture to stop any condensation within the roof.
Using timber, a low thermal conductor, to build the Icotherm solid roof adds to the insulation benefits. This means the Icotherm solid roof achieves U-Values of just 0.18 W/m2k. This creates a comfortable all-year round living space, that’s up to 90 percent warmer in the winter and 70 percent cooler in the summer.
We can help you choose from a range of tile and facia colours, ensuring
your space will look as good from the outside as it does from the inside.
You will be able to select from a selection of lightweight tiles, all designed to blend in with your existing house roof.
We offer a range of lightweight tiles that beautifully replicate traditional stone, terracotta and slate.
With a wide range of colours, your chosen tiles will match and compliment your home. In addition, your choice of fascia and guttering will provide the finishing touches. Icotherm’s tiles options are UV protected as standard and have the additional benefit of being fire-rated for your peace of mind.

Why timber? Key benefits
A renewable building material, timber has been used in construction for centuries, starting in the Middle Ages. Early examples include the roof frame for Saint Paul’s Cathedral (17th Century). Most Romanesque buildings (1000 AD) were roofed using timber frames.
One of timber’s other key benefits is that it is naturally insulating, as opposed to aluminium—which is known to be highly conductive.
Timber has a very low thermal conductivity of 0.16 W/m2k (aluminium is 205.0 W/m2k, it is very good at conducting heat and cold*).
The completed Icotherm roof offers a U-value of 0.16W/m2k
(even better than an insulated house cavity wall: 0.41w/m2k**).
- Natural insulator - Timber is naturally insulating, as opposed to aluminium, which is known to be used for similar solutions.
- Premium quality materials - Icotherm select only the highest quality timber, using a premium C24 building grade material.
- FSC certified - All our structural timber is FSC certified. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) shall promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
All shapes and sizes...
Whether you are looking for a replacement or are planning a new build, you want the end result to be right for you. Our roof can be constructed in any of the typical conservatory shapes (Victorian, Edwardian, Lean-to, Gable, Combination), as shown below.
Thanks to the flexibility in design offered by a timber solution, you can opt to have a completely bespoke room, with an Icotherm roof to match.
