Solid conservatory roofs turn a drab, chilly space into a cosy living area that you can use all year round. They improve acoustics, reduce heat loss, and help prevent condensation from forming in the room. Plus they add value to your home and save you money in energy bills.
Why you should choose a solid roof
If your conservatory is not insulated properly it can be very uncomfortable to spend time in and can cause problems with your heating bills. It can also be a source of noise from the outside and if your house is located near busy roads or train lines, this can be an issue.
A well-insulated conservatory will be much warmer in the winter and will keep out the sun’s strongest rays in summer. This will mean that you won’t have to turn on your central heating, reducing the cost of your monthly energy bills.
Insulated conservatories are worth their weight in gold!
One of the main problems with many older conservatories is that they are not well insulated. This causes the room to get too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. It also means that the conservatory is very likely to leak money through your energy bills – even if you don’t notice it.
Conservatory roofs that are poorly insulated can lead to problems such as high condensation levels, poor air quality, and an unpleasant odour inside the room. All of these can have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing.
Replacing a conservatory with a solid roof can improve your overall energy efficiency, which is the best way to lower your heating bill and make your house more affordable in the long run. It can also make your conservatory a more appealing feature for potential buyers and could increase your property’s value, if you decide to sell it in the future.
How to choose a solid roof
There are plenty of different styles of conservatory roof available, so it’s important to choose the right one for your home and budget. For example, if you’re looking for a conservatory that can be used as a dining room or lounge then it might be worth considering a glass or polycarbonate roof.
Similarly, if you want to convert your existing conservatory into an extra bedroom or study then a solid roof is likely to be the best option for you. It’s an extremely cost-effective solution, and can be fitted in just a few days!
