What are the benefits of a glass conservatory roof?
Installing a conservatory allows you to enjoy your garden all year round and embrace indoor-outdoor living to the maximum. To get the most out of it, you’ll want to allow as much natural light in as possible and there’s no better way to do that than with a glass conservatory roof. We’ve put together this list of benefits to help you decide whether a glass roof is the right option for your home. Our high-performing glass offers incredibly low U values that surpass building regulations for greater thermal performance, saving you money on heating bills in the winter and reducing the carbon footprint of your conservatory.
The glass we use for our conservatory roofs is also solar controlled which means it deflects the heat of the sun when it reaches a comfortable temperature, meaning you won’t need to worry about your conservatory turning into a greenhouse during the summer. Our glass conservatory roofs transform your conservatory into a space you can enjoy all year round. We utilise self-cleaning glass in our roofing solutions which means you don’t need to worry about spending time maintaining your conservatory roof. This advanced self-cleaning process uses the sun’s energy to burn off any dirt, and the invisible coating aids water in removing any debris that has built up.
You’ll soon stop wondering if glass roofs are any good when you see the huge amount of natural light that they bring into your conservatory and your adjoining rooms. We all want more natural light in our homes as it makes rooms feel larger, more airy, and generally more enjoyable to spend time in. This alone is a great reason to consider having a glass conservatory roof.
One other benefit of glass conservatory roofs is that they give a beautiful view of the sky above. Enjoy watching the clouds, blue skies, birds flying by, and even the snow and rain, all from the comfort of your home. A glass conservatory roof is a window to the world above!
Why Choose a Glass Roof?
Not only is the roof an integral part of the installation for stability and strength, when made from glass you’ll be able to get even more out of your investment.
Conservatories are often seen as a room to be used during summer but it seems a shame to only enjoy such a big investment a few months of the year. Glass is able to retain heat which will help to keep the conservatory warm through the winter, helping to make it a usable space all year round.
The conservatory should be the brightest room in the home, somewhere you can feel outdoors without actually having to step outside. A glass roof allows you to maximise the amount of natural light making it into the conservatory.
The last thing you want is a noisy conservatory; one more reason why glass is a great option. Outdoor noise making its way into the conservatory when you have a glass roof is greatly reduced, especially compared to a polycarbonate roof when it’s raining.
Best Glass for Conservatory Roof
There are several types of glass, each with its own benefits, find out which sounds best for your home using the information below.
During the winter, you want to keep heat in your home and thermally efficient glass will do this better than any other type of glass. The panels are double glazed and can even be coated to reduce glare.
Self-cleaning glass takes the hassle out of attempting to clean the conservatory roof – a challenge at the best of times. Thanks to a coating that reacts with sunlight, any dirt is broken down to help keep them clean.
Summer is the best time to enjoy your conservatory but direct sunlight can sometimes make it tough to relax. Tinted windows can help to drastically reduce the intensity of the sunlight making it into the conservatory.
