Tiled Conservatory Roofs – Are You Getting The Most Out of Your Conservatory?

A conservatory can be a fantastic investment and a great addition to your home. The problem is, we don’t always get as much use out of our conservatory as we would like to. Due to large glass windows and glass roof panels, you might find your conservatory unbearably hot in the summer and really cold in the winter. There are many benefits to a replacement tiled roof:

1

Choice of tiles, fittings and internal ceiling finishes

Choice of tiles, fittings and internal ceiling finishes

Conservatory roof tiles are available in a wide range of colours to match the roofwork of your house, or if you prefer, your brickwork. Facias, soffits and guttering can also be colour matched to your existing uPVC fittings. In addition to the outside aesthetics, internal ceiling finishes for tiled conservatory roofs are also available in a number of choices to suit your home, for example, plaster or tongue and groove timber effects. You can even include some glass panels or install large roof lights to ensure that plenty of light fills your space.

Reduce noise

Reduce noise

Another major problem with conservatories is just how loud the rain can sound as it beats down on a glass or polycarbonate roof. In the UK, it rains often so we have to put up with the sounds on a regular basis – this can be quite off-putting when you are trying to relax with a book or watch the television. By installing a new tiled roof for your conservatory, the noise levels when it rains will be considerably less, comparable with the rain on normal roof materials.

Reduce your energy bills

Reduce your energy bills

As conservatories with glass roofs are well known for being too warm on hot, sunny days as well as too cold in the winter, it stands to reason that to get full use out of this space, the air conditioning or heating needs to be turned on for long periods of time. As a result, spending a lot of time in your conservatory can lead to big energy bills.

In the winter, heat rises and escapes through glass or polycarbonate roofs. In contrast, in the summer, a transparent or translucent roof increases glare from the sun, almost like being sat under a giant magnifying glass. By installing a new tiled roof with a layer of insulation, your energy bills will likely drop considerably as heat will be retained better and the sun’s glare from above will be reduced.

Use your conservatory all year round

When you have invested so much money in a fantastic extension for your home, it’s a real shame if you don’t feel you can use the extra space all year round. Choosing a conservatory with a tiled roof, or replacing your existing roof with a new insulated, lightweight tiled roof allows you to take full advantage of looking out into your garden in every season. Get the most out of your investment without having to crank up the heating or air conditioning.
