WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL WITH...Cladding For Conservatory Roofs?

cladding for conservatory roofs

When you walk into a conservatory, there are some things that you expect to see, like copious amounts of glass and conservatory furniture. Then there are things that you certainly don’t expect to see - like cladding!

Some design fads come and go, either because they simply didn’t work or because the general consensus says that they never should have worked in the first place. When it comes to cladding though, the fad is very likely here to stay, and for good reason.

While some types of conservatory cladding are solely for decoration or to hide problems with the roof, other types of cladding are hiding something quite special. 

If you own a conservatory, then this is one secret that you’re going to want to get in on!

So, what’s the big deal with cladding for conservatory? Let’s find out…

Originally used by NASA to assist in the Apollo space missions, this insulation is a world away from your standard home insulation materials - even the most innovative ones, like spray foam insulation

What’s Behind All That Cladding?

For many conservatories the length and breadth of the UK, once you peel away the cladding you’re left with something that would almost be right at home in a sci-fi movie, or at the very least, something that you would discover in a NASA lab. 

The cladding is hiding a very unique form of conservatory insulation known as multi-foil insulation. 

Originally used by NASA to aid in the Apollo space missions, this insulation is a world away from your standard home insulation materials - even the most innovative ones, like spray foam insulation.

Multi-foil insulation is compromised of specialist layers of insulation material, each with their own unique abilities. 

Layer One: True Aluminium Foil

The first layer is true aluminium foil, an exceptional product that is designed to stop around 95% of radient heat. The layer keeps summer heat at bay whilst still helping to prevent heat loss in the colder months of the year.

This layer is partly responsible for the reduction in energy bills that the insulation system provides. Less heating means less energy consumption which equals a nice saving on your monthly heating bills!

With the multi-season protection afforded by the metalized poly foil, your conservatory will be able to become a relaxing, year-round retreat! 

Layer Two: Thermowadding Membrane

Next up is the thermowadding membrane, a highly useful addition to the system that helps to combat radient energy conduction. 

With this layer in place, the temperature in your conservatory will be beautifully regulated for use all year round. 

Layer Three: Metalized Poly Foil

The third layer is another foil layer, this time designed to keep the insulation airtight, protecting your conservatory from heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. 

With the multi-season protection afforded by the metalized poly foil, your conservatory will be able to become a year-round retreat. 

Layer Four: Vapour Control

The final layer is vapour control, an essential component to keep a conservatory protected agaisnt moisture damage. 

This layer helps to stop condensation build-up and reduce the risk of harmful damp and mould forming in the conservatory.

Cladding may not be the first thing that you expect to see in a conservatory, but it’s certainly something that you’re going to want to see in the future!

Why the Cladding Disguise?

You may be wondering what’s the deal with the cladding when the insulation is doing all the hard work? Well, the cladding serves many purposes, including keeping the insulation safe. 

One of the biggest reasons for the cladding is because insulation doesn’t particularly look great. Whether it’s spray foam on your walls or foil on your roof, insulation is a long way off being a fashionable design feature. 

The cladding steps in to provide a fresh look to the conservatory. The design of the cladding keeps the conservatory looking and feeling bright, despite the fact that the insulation takes care of troublesome sun glare. 

Without detracting from the exterior aesthetics of a conservatory, the cladding provides interior privacy whilst perfecting complimenting the design on both modern and traditional conservatory styles.

Cladding may not be the first thing that you expect to see in a conservatory, but it’s certainly something that you’re going to want to see in the future!
