So… What Are The Different Types?
Glass Conservatory Roofing
This type of conservatory roofing is extremely popular. It represents the pinnacle of modern design and can be sleek or sophisticated in layout. As the majority of the roof is transparent, it is perfect to allow natural light to flood through into the space below and create a very bright and airy atmosphere. The glass is usually double-glazed but triple-glazing options are available. Depending on how you would like it to look, you can opt for either plain glass or a frosted or patterned option. The smaller bezels on this type of installation allows for panoramic views so you can enjoy your garden, patio and other surroundings. With advances in technology, modern glass conservatory roofing is not only highly durable but is also very energy-efficient with special thermal layering and also has self-cleaning properties.
Polycarbonate Conservatory Roofing
For those who might be on a slightly smaller budget but still dream of having the perfect conservatory to relax in, uPVC conservatory roofing is another option which in recent years has gained popularity and widespread use. It is a lightweight material that provides excellent insulation, protecting your area from the elements. Unlike glass, you can get a variety of different colours and bezel profiles and thicknesses – all to suit your aesthetic tastes. They are also resistant to UV radiation, offering protection to you and your furniture.
Tiled Conservatory Roofing
One of the more traditional approaches to conservatory roofing is a tiled system. Unlike the previous options there is little to no natural light to shine down on your living area, however they are extremely durable and long lasting and provide excellent insulation against the elements. The colour of the tiles enables the conservatory roofing to seamlessly blend in with the rest of the property brickwork, which combines uniformity and style. Depending on the type of tile used, these can be very expensive to install but in the long run can save you money on your energy and maintenance bills.
