Is your conservatory roof performing as it should?
Q Is it time to replace my conservatory roof?
A A conservatory is one of the most desired home improvements and it’s a shame when it can’t be used all year round – particularly as our homes have become even more important due to the challenges faced during lockdown.
The problem with ageing conservatories is that they don’t hold heat in, making them extremely cold in the winter, and the main culprit for this is polycarbonate or old glass roofs.
These also do not keep the sun out, making a conservatory unbearably hot in the summer, they provide poor sound insulation and are prone to leaking as they get to the end of their natural life.
If you are experiencing any of the above then it’s a clear sign that your roof needs to be replaced with either a solid conservatory roof, or Solar Self-Cleaning glass roof.
Made up of tiles, with highly insulated panels, or modern energy efficient and solar controlled glass, you will benefit from impressive levels of thermal efficiency – keeping your conservatory warm in the winter and cool in the summer – and it will also come with increased noise reduction, which will lead to a supremely comfortable home environment.
You will also notice a big saving on your energy bills, and an added value to your house price as it will act as an extra room that can be used all year round, whether you make it a dining room, kitchen, study, office or even a ground floor bedroom.
If you want to use your conservatory as a comfortable living space, then don’t despair that you will need to invest in a completely new one. Often, all a conservatory needs to get it performing to its maximum again is a modern replacement roof.
