Frequently Asked Questions
Once the roof is installed, is it strong enough to walk on?
Yes, the solid conservatory roof will be strong enough to walk on. However, we recommend that you use a ply sheet or board to spread the weight evenly over the tiles.

We recommend that you use an airline to clean the roof or alternatively, you can hose it down with water.
Will my existing window frames be strong enough to hold the Warm Roof?
