Since the late 90s, conservatory roofs have gained popularity in the UK, mainly because they are cheap to install, and offer aesthetic appeal to any home. But, one of the many problems that conservatories face is that they get too cold during winter, too hot in summer, and noisy during rainy season. This means that even a new conservatory roof can only be at a temperature that’s comfortable to live in for a few hours a day, unless you insulate it. Those who are considering replacing their old conservatory roofs or getting their roofs insulated often worry about conservatory roof replacement cost. But, that should be the least of your problems. If you are contemplating a conservatory roof conversion then you should know the following.
This depends on your budget, the available space, and more importantly, what you are going to use the room for. Whether you want to create your living space into a living room, a dining room or an extension of your kitchen, getting a conservatory roof replacement that comes with either a traditional glass or polycarbonate ceiling will ensure that you are able to create the perfect space for relaxation. Getting your conservatory properly insulated will keep the heat out during the summer and keep the conservatory warm during the winter. An orangery will require piers made from brick, with a lantern style roof that rises up from a parapet wall. Roof extensions is another option that allows you to control the amount of light that enters the room. The only problem is that both orangery and extensions are considered to be more expensive options, whereas, a conservatory roof conversion is cheaper, and more advanced in design and build. What’s more, a conservatory is not only comfortable, but also more energy efficient as compared to orangeries or extensions.
When your existing conservatory roof gets old it is always advised to get a new conservatory roof installed. While you can fit insulation or plasterboard on the insides of your existing glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof, they are certain risks involved that homeowners should be aware of. One of the problems of doing that is homeowners often find a build-up of condensation on the underside of the glazing in winter, which can result to dripping on the insulation and damaging the plasterboard ceiling. Furthermore, regardless of conservatory roof insulation cost, a conservatory roof is not build to last forever. All conservatory roofs tend to have a total lifespan of around ten years, which means if the conservatory roof you have was installed for more than a decade, chances are, it has fallen victim to the elements and is probably damaged. After more than ten years of use, the rubber gaskets of glass roofs also deteriorate, which means your conservatory roof is no longer watertight. In this scenario, getting a new conservatory roof is advised.
Some people just can’t afford the costs of getting a new conservatory roof, in which case, insulating your existing roof is another effective option. But, for those who are looking for a lasting solution, getting a new conservatory roof is a better option. That’s because while materials used in traditional conservatory roofs proved to be problematic, modern conservatory roofs are made with more robust and lightweight materials that offer a bespoke design and much better quality. Some of the benefits of conservatory roof conversion are:
• Keeps the conservatory cool during the summer and warm during the winter.
• Easy and hassle free installation.
• Much better insulation ensuring a reduction in energy bills.
• Excellent protection against extreme weather.
• You can maintain the aesthetic appeal of the traditional roof without the strain on the conservatory’s structure.
• Stylish design and finish.
One of the problems with conservatory roofs that haven’t been insulated properly is their efficiency to heat up during the hot summer months. This heat can sometimes become unbearable, reducing the time which can be spent comfortably in your conservatory to just a couple of hours each day. Fortunately, the modern conservatory designs offers ways in which the temperature of the conservatory can be regulated. Some of the modern designs reject ultra violate rays and visible glare which leads to the temperature in your conservatory rising during peak summer months. Also, rather than opting for the traditional glass design, you can get a new conservatory roof made from polycarbonate, which offers a glazed finish, or a solid conservatory roof system that keeps the glare from penetrating the conservatory. The heat that can build up in a conservatory during the hot summer months can be regulated by proper ventilation, extractor fans, blinds and conservatory design.
Conservatories made from glass or polycarbonate are great for soaking up the sun and making the most out of bright sunshine during the summer, but certain measures need to be taken so that your conservatory can be kept warm and comfortable during the harsh winter months. Luckily for you, it is possible for you to enjoy your conservatory during the cold winter months as well by getting a conservatory roof conversion or by simply getting your conservatory roof properly insulated. The use of under-floor heating, radiators and proper insulation are efficient and economical solutions for keeping the cold outside during winter months.
Conservatory roof insulation such as those provided by Warm Conservatory Roofs can easily keep your conservatory roof warm and comfortable all year round without using much energy, which leads to better energy consumption, and cost saving.
A conservatory is a great place to spend time all year round, but only if the necessary precautions are taken and the conservatory roof is well maintained to keep the temperature inside properly regulated at all times. Luckily, you can create the ideal space in your home by getting conservatory roof insulation at an affordable cost.
