A solid conservatory roof is a great way to make your conservatory an all-weather space to enjoy all year round. It is important that you take the time to fully understand the benefits and cost before making a decision. This article will look at some of the common myths surrounding this type of roof replacement so you can make an informed choice.
Myth: A solid conservatory roof will be too dark
Adding a solid tiled conservatory roof to an existing conservatory will transform it into a room that feels like an extension of your home. This is the perfect place to relax, unwind and entertain friends and family. With a choice of different finishes and colours to choose from you can create the perfect space to suit your lifestyle.
The glazed sections of the conservatory can be fitted sparingly, keeping the space bright and giving it a feeling of openness. Double glazed panels are also extremely energy efficient, keeping the room warm and helping to reduce your energy bills.
Myth: A solid roof isn’t insulated enough
A lot of people are worried that a solid conservatory roof will not be able to keep their room as warm as they would like. However, the truth is that solid conservatory roofs are highly insulated and have excellent U-values. This means that they can reduce heat loss by as much as 75% and retain as much warmth as possible in winter.
Myth: A solid conservatory is too expensive
In reality, the opposite is true, a solid conservatory roof will actually save you money over the long term as it will be able to be used for much more of the year than a glass or polycarbonate conservatory. This is because you won’t need to use as much heating during the winter and will find that your electricity bills are reduced due to improved energy efficiency.
Myth: A solid roof will require a substantial amount of work to install
It is a common misconception that fitting a new solid conservatory roof will be a major renovation project. However, in many cases this isn’t the case as the majority of the work is done from inside the house, meaning that you don’t have to worry about disrupting your everyday life.
