Rooves as a plural for of roof is dated, but not incorrect. The Oxford English Dictionary lists ďroovesĒ as an alternate to roofs, one of several outdated spellings used in the UK, and in New England as late as the 19th century. :P

I have a conservatory, I insulated the walls etc l, with kingspan stuff, added proper radiator.

Problem is conservatoryís are shite, foundations tend to be crap and floor is not insulated either. Itís like trying to heat a kitchen cullender.

Iím now favouring bulldozing it and building a proper extension.

Mine has proper foundations, 100mm insulated floor, underfloor heating, and radiators, (I was site foreman), but of course still loses heat through the double glazing. There are several companies offering either internal, effectively, ceilings, or external insulated roof panels. :y

Sounds better than mine then, I did look at replacement roofs either whole and tiled type or panels. Mine is double glazed roof.

Seriously expensive for what they are, If foundations are strong enough it would probably be similar price to build normal extension, they are that pricey!

Conservatories should be banned in my view, horrible things. Hate mine with a passion.

Does the same apply to 'hoofs 'and 'hooves'?

I see a lot of the word your incorrectly used in place of you are or you're on this forum.  :)

Roofs.

Mr Shackeng was a pilot for forty years. He won't take kindly to being lectured on the finer points of spelling and punctuation by an errant scouser. :)

Some friends of mine looked into this for their conservatory and came to the conclusion that by the time you'd paid out on the ceiling you may as well have demolished and built an extension in its place.

I'd seriously look at that instead, particularly if the foundations are good enough to support it already.

Please do NOT insult the honorable gentleman ... he never was past of the "drivers, airframe, for the use of" branch of Her Majesty's Royal Air Force ..... please note his screenname .. shackENG ....

However as a Master Engineer of some seniority he would have often taught junior pilots the intricacies of correct Service Writing ...
