If you’ve spent a substantial amount of money building a conservatory, it’s important that you know how to care for it properly. Read the following tips to ensure that your conservatory roof remains in tiptop condition for years to come.
- The most important rule when it comes to conservatory roofs is that you should never climb on top of it! If there is an urgent problem, call out a roofing specialist who will have the necessary equipment to fix your roof without damaging it.
- Condensation can be a major issue when it comes to conservatories. Changing seasons and other temporary conditions, such as other building work, can cause condensation to appear. It’s important that you use tools such as roof vents, fans and windows in summer, and heaters in winter, to keep temperatures stable and to reduce condensation.
- Check the guttering regularly. You may occasionally notice standing water in your guttering. Ensure that any debris is removed to prevent a build-up as this will affect your roof if it is not dealt with.
Make caring for your conservatory roof simple
Glass and PVC roofs let in plenty of light but they have considerable drawbacks. As well as being difficult to keep clean, they can make your conservatory very cold in winter and very hot in summer. They are prone to condensation and some are unable to stand severe weather conditions.
A ThermeRoof insulated conservatory roof, on the other hand, will help you maintain comfortable temperatures all year round while also helping to reduce energy prices. It is extremely lightweight, highly weatherproof and secure, while also reducing external noise. Best of all, it is affordable, comes in a range of styles and is fully guaranteed.
