Lightweight Roof Systems for Conservatories

Conservatories can easily overheat in the summer, particularly if they’re south-facing of if you can’t or don’t want to open the windows. As a replacement of a glass roof, there are lightweight roof systems for conservatories available, and we look at the best around.

A solid roof can make your conservatory feel like more of an orangery than a conservatory, but there’s no need for it to be any darker than it was before.

Conservatory Insulation offers a great lightweight roof solution that helps maintain your conservatory’s steady temperature levels better than a glass or solid roof. Here's how it works its magic...

Lightweight Roof Systems Conservatories- How Is It Built?

Conservatory Insulation by Home Logic is a specialist insulation system for conservatories and was initially developed by NASA for the Apollo space missions!

Now firmly back down to Earth, the unique system is used for conservatory insulation but in a way that maintains temperature between extreme changes; rather than just keeping everything warm.

The insulation is made up of material layers that each have a different purpose. The six layers of material hold in heat whilst allowing the moisture in the air to pass through and out.

Laboratory testing by unbiased third party organisations has shown that this alone keeps out up to 95% of radiant heat – a ridiculously successful result!

Layers one and six, the outermost, are True Aluminium Foil.

The second and fifth layers are both a specialist ThermoWadding Membrane, which hold pockets of air to prevent the absorption of radiant energy and maintain an even temperature. The other two layers are a Metalised PolyFoil Barrier and a Vapour Control Foam Membrane.

The Metalised PolyFoil Barrier is an additional heat barrier, and the Vapour Control layer keeps out any moisture, so unlike traditional insulation and roofs, there’s no danger of condensation or damp build up. Read more here about conservatory lightweight roof system.

These layers all together make up the finished product used in UK homes, which can be applied by a specialist technician over your glass roof for a lightweight roofing solution. 

The Benefits of Lightweight Roof Systems Conservatories

The great thing about conservatory roof insulation is that the job can be done within a day, and you won’t need to wait after the installation to use your conservatory again; you can be straight back in within 24hrs!

As opposed to glass, the insulation becomes a lightweight roof for your conservatory, and a functional one: maintaining temperature to help cut down on your energy bills and keep your indoors-outdoors living space more comfortable.

Not having a glass roof also prevents glare from the sun on your devices, and can reduce noise levels from outside.

Also, if you find your conservatory chilly during colder days, you should seriously consider a lightweight roof system instead of glass.

It’s also not a case of having to have a crew of builders round to completely replace what you already have. We have a team of specialist technicians that can install conservatory roof insulation and will give you a free, no-obligation chat and quote based entirely on your requirements and property.

The job can be done within a day, and you won’t need to wait after the installation to use your conservatory again; you can be straight back in within 24hrs!

If you already have a solid roof on your conservatory, Home Logic lightweight roof insulation system can instead line it as a roof reinforcement.

Using a lightweight roof system keeps up to 95% of heat loss escaping your room, which, in turn, will have a really positive impact on your heating bills and help maintain an ambient living environment. Read more here.

It’s the market leading product in conservatory insulation and part of the reason for that is its versatility.
