When it comes to replacing your conservatory roof panels, you have a variety of options to choose from. Whether you want to add value to your home or simply make your conservatory a room that can be used all year round, the right roof panel material is essential.
Here at Roofing Megastore we can provide you with a wide range of options to suit all budgets, including the incredibly affordable CosyPanels. These roof panels are insulated and are available in a range of colours, styles and thicknesses. They are a popular choice for homeowners who want to save money on energy costs and can be installed without the need for any structural changes to your existing roof.
Another popular option for a replacement conservatory roof is a glass roof. Glass roofs are available in a number of different varieties, including tinted and Celsius performance glass. These types of glass offer a host of benefits, including improved thermal qualities, low maintenance and reduced glare. They also allow natural light to flood into your conservatory, making them ideal for homeowners who want to use their conservatory throughout the day.
However, the biggest downside of a glass conservatory roof is that it can be quite costly to install. Glass is incredibly heavy, which means that the roof structure will need to be built with a solid frame. In addition, a glass roof can be quite difficult to clean and is prone to stains from severe hail. If you want a glass roof, it is recommended that you invest in one that is coated with UV protection to prevent the panels discolouring or becoming stained.
Polycarbonate is a cheap and durable roof material that is commonly used for conservatory roofs. Unlike glass and tiles, polycarbonate is able to withstand prolonged extreme temperatures without sustaining damage or breaking. However, standard polycarbonate is often noisy in bad weather and has a tendency to gather grime more easily than other materials. It is also less effective than glass at diffusing natural sunlight, as it has an opaque finish.
Tiled roofs are a popular choice for many homeowners, as they can create a very aesthetically pleasing look to your conservatory. However, a tiled conservatory roof is also very expensive to install. In addition, a tiled roof can be noisy in bad weather and will not allow natural light to enter your conservatory.
Lastly, a solar panel roof is a great way to make the most of your conservatory space and save on energy bills. Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity that can be used in your home or even sold back to the grid! If you’re interested in a solar panel conservatory roof, it’s important to check out your local building regulations before installing one, as they will likely require planning permission.
