Glass Roof Replacement

If you speak to the experts, they will tell you that there are many reasons why a glass conservatory roof is superior to a polycarbonate one.

 

To start with they are less vulnerable to leaks as well as noise from rainwater. Also, as long as the correct types of glass are used, glass conservatory roofs will result in a far cooler conservatory in the summer as well as a warmer one in summer - generally they are more thermally efficient. Finally, they are much simpler to clean than polycarbonate roofs, especially if they are made using specialist self cleaning glass.

 

For safety, toughened or laminated glass must be used throughout. Toughened Glass offers added security benefits against break-ins and cuts out around 90% of the sun's UV rays. Not only does this provide protection against fading furniture and fabrics but also will help protect you and your family from skin damage from UV rays.

In order to prevent your conservatory from getting too hot, especially if it is south facing, it is advisable to use solar control glass. This special type of glass can save you money by decreasing the amount of energy that is needed to heat or cool your conservatory and makes the inside of the conservatory more comfortable by controlling heat and light levels. This is the key to being able to use your conservatory all year round.

 

Glass also offers dramatically improved sound reduction compared to polycarbonate sheets. Polycarbonate roof panels may be less expensive, but they are far noisier than glass when it rains, and can be real conversation stoppers in a downpour. If you want to use your conservatory as a main living room it is worth upgrading to a glass roof.
