Conservatory Roofing Options

conservatory insulation solutions conservatory roofing options

Although once used simply for growing tropical plants, today’s conservatories are often used as additional living space all year round. Perhaps your conservatory is an office, a dining room-or even a playroom for the kids!

Using your conservatory throughout the year means you need to think about how warm it will be. Nobody wants to spend more than they need to on energy bills, and by making some sensible decisions, you can choose the right style, shape and size of conservatory, to suit your family’s needs.

When it comes to conservatory roofing options, you’re spoiled for choice, although the type of conservatory you choose can often affect your conservatory roofing options. We’ve compiled the following guide to the best conservatory roofing choices available…

What are the Best Conservatory Roofing Options?

When it comes to conservatory roofing options, these are the most popular choices:

Glass Roof

This brings more light into your conservatory, and you can choose from different types of glass, including: self-cleaning, thermally efficient and tinted glass.

Polycarbonate Roof

Although cheaper than glass, polycarbonate is less thermally efficient, and allows less natural light in, so glass may be a better long-term investment overall.

Solid Roof

This provides effective insulation, ensuring your conservatory stays cool in Summer, and warm in Winter. If you’re concerned about lack of light, you can add Velux windows to the existing structure.

Tiled Roof

This requires less cleaning than glass, and offers excellent insulation to boot. The choice is ultimately yours, and will depend on a variety of factors including: your budget, your available space, and the style of your existing property.

You should also take time to think about what you intend to use your conservatory for. For many families, a conservatory provides extra living or dining space, or somewhere for the kids to play.

You want to ensure that your conservatory stays warm in the Winter, and cool during the Summer– that’s where internal roof insulation can help!

Conservatory Roof Insulation – Why Is It Important?

If you do have a glass roof, you can add a roof cover, which helps to regulate temperature, and reduce the glare from the sun. We can install internal conservatory roof insulation, which also gives you privacy from your neighbours.

When it comes to conservatory roofing options, glass is the most popular choice, but glass roofs can intensify heat from the sun, raising the temperature to an uncomfortable level, and, in some cases, causing sunburn as well.

Keeps Your Conservatory Cosy The Easy Way!

Home Logic Conservatory Insulation is constructed from aluminium, foam and padding, with tiny air pockets that prevent up to 91% of heat loss through your conservatory roof.

Whatever type of roof you ultimately decide to choose for your conservatory, it makes sense to choose a professional contractor to install your insulation. What’s more, it is at least 50% cheaper to install our insulation, compared to purchasing a brand new conservatory roof.

So how exactly is the product applied?

First, we fill the space between the conservatory roof rafters with insulation material, trapping heat, yet ensuring the building can still breathe. Then you have two options: either cover the insulation completely with boarding, or have a new ceiling applied on top.

Both options entirely block light through the roof, giving you total privacy, as well as trapping heat.

The Benefits of Conservatory Roof Insulation

There are a number of benefits associated with installing conservatory roof insulation. Here are just a few to get you started:

  • It adds value to your home – how much value will depend on the type of conservatory you install, and how well insulated it is
  • It means you can use your garden all year round – for example, hayfever sufferers can still enjoy natural light in the Summer months
  • You can enjoy extra work or living space throughout the year, as your conservatory will be a constant temperature
