The roof is one of the most important features of a conservatory. It can dramatically influence the amount of light that can enter the room and it can also affect how well a conservatory retains heat. It is therefore vital that a conservatory roof is properly insulated. Previously all conservatory roofs were made from glass or polycarbonate but since the regulations have been relaxed there are now many different insulated conservatory roof options to choose from.
A new conservatory roof will improve the thermal efficiency of your room significantly and will ensure that it is a comfortable space all year round. It will also help to reduce noise and condensation. However, you should bear in mind that not all roofs are the same and it is important to get your chosen roof from a reputable supplier who is a member of The Conservatory Association.
The most popular choice for a conservatory roof is still glass. This material is available in a wide range of tints and opacities and it can be shaped to create a unique style for your conservatory. Glass is very durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions such as extreme heatwaves, cold winters or snow and ice. However, it is important to note that glass does not provide as much insulation as other materials.
Another option for a conservatory roof is polycarbonate which is less expensive than glass and provides good insulation. Polycarbonate is also shatterproof which means that it can withstand a lot of force. However, it does not offer as much natural light transmission as glass.
An even more insulated option for your conservatory is a tiled roof. This cutting edge roof from conservatory pioneers Ultraframe can be installed on both existing and new conservatories. It is designed to be inserted into any shape of conservatory and can even be fitted with internal plastered vaulted ceilings. It can be matched with contemporary Velux windows and will transform the appearance of your conservatory whilst actively resisting condensation, reducing energy bills and acoustic improvement.
It is worth noting that if you are replacing an existing conservatory with a solid roof then you will need to submit a Building Regulation application. It is best to check with your local council for details on this. A new Guardian warm roof will make your conservatory a much more usable space and will add a significant amount of value to your property.
