Conservatory roof panels can be a perfect way to add an extra layer of protection from the elements while still allowing plenty of natural light into your home. These systems are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be fixed or operable.
There are many benefits to using conservatory roof panels, including the fact that they can help reduce the amount of heat that escapes into your home. This can make your rooms much more comfortable during the warmer months and ensure that you are not overheating in the winter.
The most common roofing materials used for these structures are polycarbonate and glass. Both of these materials are durable, lightweight, and can withstand extreme temperatures. However, it isn’t practical to cover a house’s entire roof in one of these materials.
Glass is another great option for a conservatory roof, and there are many types of glass that can be installed. Some of these include multi-wall and transparent glass. They are also available in a variety of tints and thicknesses, so you can find the best fit for your needs.
A clear glass roof is often a popular choice for conservatories, as it offers plenty of natural light without sacrificing thermal efficiency. In addition, this type of roofing can be customized to match your existing home’s style.
Another popular choice for conservatories is polycarbonate. This type of roofing is a strong thermoplastic material that is resistant to both boiling and freezing temperatures, as well as hail and falling branches.
When installed with reflective insulation, this type of roof can be an excellent solution to keeping your conservatory or orangery cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This is because polycarbonate reflects the sun’s heat back out of your conservatory or summer room, keeping it cooler inside and making it more comfortable for you to use.
The downside to these types of roofs is that they are often quite noisy, especially during rain. However, we have a system called Quietguard that can be retrofitted onto your polycarbonate roof to eliminate the noise.
This system is made by a company in Wales that specializes in manufacturing sound-reducing sheets. They are designed to be placed on top of glazing bars and can be fitted within a day, depending on the roof design.
We recommend using these sheets when a new conservatory is built, or when it is being replaced on an existing structure. They are simple to install and require a few tools.
An elastomeric sheet can be placed under the roof of a polycarbonate conservatory to reduce noise and vibrations caused by rain and hail. This patented technology can be used to reduce the frequency and volume of these sounds by up to 90%, allowing you to use your conservatory at a comfortable level all year round.
There are a number of options for conservatory roof panels, but we recommend combining them with the right insulation for your needs. Our team can help you find the right combination of polycarbonate, insulated glass, and additional materials to keep your conservatory comfortable year-round.
