If your conservatory is fitted with glass or polycarbonate roofing, you may notice that it gets unbearably cold throughout the winter months and ridiculously hot in the summer. This is mainly because of the poor quality of roofing which does not retain or reflect heat when you need it most, causing an uncomfortable conservatory to be in.
Solid roof replacement
The solution to this, and to stay warm throughout the year, is a conservatory roof replacement. A solid roof over your conservatory will provide a much more usable space, not just in the milder weather conditions, and let you make the most out of the extra room in your home.
A lightweight solid roof is essentially an insulated roof which acts as an extra layer of insulation in your conservatory. This will be much better at retaining heat when it’s cold as it’s essentially the same roofing as the rest of your home, but lightweight enough to rest on your conservatory structure without any strain on its foundations.
A U-value rating is the measurement of heat transfer. A really low U-value means that the item in question will resist spreading heat. A typical polycarbonate or glass roof has a U-value in the range of 3.0 – 1.0 whereas a solid ThermeRoof roof can achieve a U-value as low as 0.18! A U-value that low means no boiling hot conservatory in the height of the summer, but a warm and temperature regulated space that you can relax in and enjoy.
Extra room for your home
As well as keeping it warm, a conservatory roof replacement can transform your conservatory into an extra room of your home. A solid roof is less likely to develop condensation or mould from a poor quality uPVC roof plus will benefit from reduced noise from the outside.
