    I've been getting quotes to replace my converseratory's polycarbonate roof with a solid one.

    Is a Buidling Regs certificate required for this? (especially if I come to move house).

    Some of the companies say yes and some say no o_O

    Also, some of the companies want to replace the current "rafters" with stronger aluminium ones and others will just attach a wooden batten to the existing ones (the insulation and plastering is the same for both).

    Is using the current rafters ok?

    I emailed them and got a reply saying it would definitely require building regs.
    They said when it was originally built as a conservatory it wouldn't have needed building regs, so no checks would have been carried out to ensure the current structure would adequately support a solid roof.

    I asked the company would said it wouldn't need a certificate how much it would cost for them to get one, they've never replied :);)
