Glass Conservatory Roof Replacement

Traditionally, old conservatories were built with glass or polycarbonate roof systems. Glass has many appealing qualities, and with advancements in glazing technology, modern homeowners can now enjoy a glass conservatory roof replacement without any performance issues. 

In the past, poor quality glazing meant that conservatory roofs were unable to provide adequate temperature control all year round. A low performance glass conservatory roof will not be able to retain heat inside during the winter effectively and will also cause the space below to overheat throughout the summer. It is not uncommon for older conservatories to be unusable for periods of the year due to these heat control issues.

Glass Panel Conservatory Roof 

A full glass conservatory roof replacement will provide your conservatory with a traditional appearance, but unless you invest in a system with the latest technology, such as the Ultraframe Glass Roof, you may find your space struggles to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year. The Ultraframe Glass Roof can benefit from further insulation and the look and feel of an extension with the addition of an internal pelmet. Pelmets are available at any depth between 300mm and 1200mm, providing a choice in terms of look and insulation.

The Ultraframe glass conservatory roof replacement provides excellent temperature control during every season, but not all homeowners like the full glass aesthetic - this is where the Ultraroof tiled roof system or the Livinroof hybrid roof may be the ideal choice.

When you choose either the Livinroof or Ultraroof, glass panels can be installed into the roof, allowing you to take control of how much natural light floods into your space. Both systems feature an internal plastered vaulted ceiling which provides additional insulation and creates a space for speakers and spotlights to be installed. 

Solid roof conservatories with glass panels in the roof often feel cosier than those with a full glass installation. Your conservatory will feel more like a true extension of your home as it will have a plastered ceiling and a more room-like atmosphere. Solid conservatory roofs with glass panels provide homeowners with the best of both worlds: extra natural light and outstanding thermal performance all year round.
