Conservatory roof replacements or new build installations? Which dominates?

Neglected, old, tarnished conservatory roofs have provided a lucrative market for both the PVCu/Ali conservatory roof and the tiled conservatory roof replacement sector, but is that reflected by fabricators and installers?

The third part of Insight Data’s research project relating to the market of PVCu/Ali conservatory roofs and tiled conservatory roofs first of contact fabricators and asked, ‘what is your split between replacement conservatory roofs and new builds?

Fabricators on average revealed that replacement roofs slightly out do new build projects, a 58% to 42% split. Interestingly, when asked the same question, installers came back with new build at 54% and replacements at 46%.

Jade Greenhow, Operations Director at Insight Data comments,

“Its intriguing that although similar, both fabricators and installers have disagreed on which split is bigger. It does render the question are both fabricators and installers either not communicating trends, or are they both neglecting opposing markets?”

The current UK government has a current target of 300,000 homes annually, this alongside a increase in private housing builds suggests there is a fruitful market out there to explore.
