A solid conservatory roof is a great way to make your conservatory usable all year round. With U-values significantly lower than glass or polycarbonate, a solid conservatory roof will retain heat much better meaning your conservatory is less likely to become sweltering in summer and freezing in winter.
A conservatory with a solid roof is also more energy efficient which will help to reduce your home energy bills. Similarly, a solid roof will provide you with more protection for your conservatory’s contents. Extreme fluctuations in temperature (as experienced with glass or polycarbonate roofs) can cause damage to furniture and electrical items. However, a solid conservatory roof will keep the temperature inside your conservatory much more consistent which will protect these valuables.
It is also worth noting that solid conservatory roofs will not only protect your property from extreme temperatures but they will also reduce noise levels in your conservatory. This is because solid roofs are more dense than glass or polycarbonate.
The roof tiles used for a solid conservatory roof are extremely durable and come in a range of colours which makes it easy to match them up with the colour scheme of your house. This is important because the conservatory will feel more like a part of your home rather than an outbuilding which may detract from its overall appeal.
There are a number of other benefits to choosing a solid roof including the fact that they will provide you with far more privacy than a conservatory with a glass or polycarbonate roof. Furthermore, a solid conservatory roof will allow for more natural light to enter the room which can really lift a space making it feel brighter and bigger.
Finally, solid roofs can be fitted with Velux-style windows which will further add to the overall appearance of your conservatory. If you decide to go for this option then be sure to get quotes from a few national and local installers who specialise in this type of work. Competition amongst installers is a good thing as it raises standards and drives prices down for consumers.
