What’s the benefit of a hard or solid conservatory roof?

It’s likely that you are reading this, because it’s got to the point where you find that too often when you want to enjoy the space your conservatory offers – you simply can’t!

do you need a hard conservatory roof?

A conservatory offers up an opportunity to add valuable extra space to your home whilst still being able to enjoy plenty of natural light.  However, the reality often ends up being:

  • that it’s too hot in summer and too cold in winter,
  • the repairs (once they start) can seem to be never ending,
  • condensation makes the space feel damp and causes mould,
  • the glare from the sun can be unbearable,
  • and cleaning can be hazardous or cost a fortune.

the benefits of a hard conservatory roof

There are different options available to tackling some of the problems above.  The only solution that’s going to help with all of them though over an extended period of time, is to replace the existing glass or polycarbonate roof with a hard conservatory roof.

  • a hard conservatory roof eliminates many of the materials that conduct the heat/cold – ensuring this is a long term solution for your home.
  • insulation is added offering thermal efficiencies – allowing you to enjoy your room throughout the year.
  • hard roofs will use products that are not only lightweight but have typically over 10years guarantee.
  • eliminate the problem of condensation and mould – no longer will you have to spend time cleaning the inside of your windows, worrying about the damage to your furniture or your families health!
  • the natural light lost with the installation of a hard conservatory roof is minimal – in fact many customers that opt for a replacement conservatory roof comment that they can now enjoy more leisure activities such as reading and TV in the room.  In addition with your choice of lighting installed many also say that they are enjoying the room in the evenings more than ever before!
  • from the inside the hard conservatory roof is finished to a plastered finish and the outside tiles/guttering and new frames (if required) can be customised to suit your taste and style – giving you a sunroom to be proud of!
