Wendland Roofing Vs Timber Roofing: what are the differences?
Wendland conservatory roofs are designed to be a high-performing replacement roof system or part of a new build conservatory. Wendland roofing systems offer a fully glazed roof to maximise natural light intake or a tiled roof system to boost privacy and optimise thermal performance. At TDK Frames, we also provide a selection of Wendland roof lanterns, a popular choice for orangeries and flat roof extensions.
But is Wendland roofing better than timber roofing for your conservatory? Let’s look at the details and discover the best option for your customers.
What are the benefits of Wendland roofing?
The main benefit of using Wendland replacement roofs is flexibility. These replacement roof systems cope and accommodate any roof design and shape.

Can I use a timber roof on a conservatory?
Yes, you can use a timber roof, but despite timber being a prime choice of construction material, it still has flaws. It is essential to consider a timber frame replacement before purchasing and installing a new timber roof.
What are some potential problems with using timber conservatory roofs?
While uncommon, wood rot is still a problem with any timber construction. Any condensation in a conservatory roof could cause timbers to start to rot. Wendland systems don’t have any issues with rot.
Timber is a weighty building material compared to a Wendland roofing system and may not be suitable for a conservatory. If the conservatory is not in the best shape, a timber roof could cause structural problems, as a Wendland replacement roof would be appropriate.
You can treat wood to reduce the fire risk, but the timber will still be flammable. Wendland systems are fully fire tested for your peace of mind and safety.
Doesn’t Solve Insulation Issues
One of the main reasons homeowners are looking for a conservatory roof replacement is to reduce heat loss but changing to a timber roof won’t help much. A timber roof replacement won’t fix the problem if a conservatory roof is inefficient, as a Wendland system is proven to be thermally efficient.
