The roofing system you choose for your conservatory can have an impact on the style and feel of the room. A solid tiled roof can give a room a more traditional appearance, while a glass or polycarbonate roof will add a more modern aesthetic. It’s also important to consider how the roof will complement your existing property and whether planning permission is required.
The type of material used and the glazing options are also important. If you’re looking for a conservatory with minimal maintenance, uPVC is an ideal choice. It is a low cost option that can be finished in a variety of styles. If you’re after a more modern look, then opt for aluminum or timber-effect uPVC panels.
A solid tiled roof is a great way to improve the aesthetic of your conservatory and make it feel more like an extension to your home. They’re also easy to maintain and have a long life span.
They’re also great for keeping your conservatory cool in the summer and warm in winter. They have thermo performance capabilities comparable to no other material and will ensure your conservatory is insulated throughout the year, helping to reduce energy costs.
If you’re not sure about what roofing system to choose for your new conservatory, talk to a professional. There are many different styles of conservatory roof panels and a skilled installer will be able to advise you on the best one for your needs.
For example, the WARMroof system from Andy Glass Windows is a good choice for clients who want year-round comfort. It is insulated at the eaves and above the rafters, preventing interstitial condensation. It also has a choice of Velux(r) windows to increase the amount of natural light in the room.
Alternatively, we recommend our Planitherm 4S panel for maximum solar protection and thermal efficiency. This highly reflective panel reflects up to 57% of the sun’s heat, which can help to keep your conservatory cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
This is another popular option for reducing your energy bills and making your conservatory more comfortable to use. It is a lightweight, transparent and affordable alternative to traditional glazing systems such as polycarbonate.
It is available in a wide range of thicknesses and colours, and offers excellent insulation values. In addition, it’s very tough and is suitable for outdoor use.
As with all glass, the type of glazing that you choose can have an impact on the aesthetic and function of your conservatory. There are a number of options to choose from including self-cleaning surfaces that reduce dirt particles and soft coat inner layers that enhance the insulation of your roof.
You can also opt for a sound reducing roof sheet that will cut down the resonant frequency of the noise that rain makes when it hits your conservatory. These sheets are simple to fit and can be completed within a day.
You can also opt for a solid roof to improve the overall insulation of your conservatory and help to keep it warmer in the winter. This can help to lower your heating bills and increase the value of your home.
