Conservatory Roofing Materials:

When the time comes that you decide to invest in replacing the roof on your conservatory, it is important to choose the best conservatory roofing material for your needs. We have provided you with everything you will need to consider before replacing your conservatory roofing material.

The first decision you need to make when choosing a conservatory roofing material is to check that it will provide you with long-term functionality.

With conservatory roofing materials, you get what you pay for. Whilst polycarbonate conservatory roofs are cheap, but they are also hydroscopic, which means that algae grows in between the sheeting layers, making the polycarbonate become dirty quickly. Polycarbonate is also a brittle material which means that it is prone to cracking and this leads to leaking. Polycarbonate also has very poor insulating performance.

Glass or tiled roofing materials tend to outperform polycarbonate on every level because they are made from a better quality material. In fact, Refresh’s conservatory roof materials come with a ten-year guarantee.

You can add value to your property by investing in a high quality conservatory roof material. Did you know, for example that investments in conservatories lead to the highest returns on investment when selling a property?

Not only do you need to consider which roofing material will provide you with the functional attributes, such as making sure the roof will remain leak free for years to come and well insulated in winter, the second decision you need to make is which style roof you want.

About Glass Roofs:

If it is important to you that you get  a great deal of natural light into your conservatory, without the glare, then opting for Refresh glass roof is the best option. The Refresh glass conservatory roofing material is one of the best quality glass money can buy because not only does it look great, the advanced technology used in the manufacturing process of the glass makes it perform excellently. Self-cleaning, high UV resistance and a U-value of 1.0W per m²K all contribute to ensuring you get a conservatory you can use 365 days in a year, whatever the weather.

About Tiled Roofs:

If it is important to you that you get more privacy from your neighbours or that your conservatory feels more like an extension to your home, the Refresh Tiled Conservatory roof is the best option. The Refresh tiled conservatory roofing material is made using a special tile called envirotile, which has unique insulating properties. The high performance tiles will insulate your conservatory in the winter and keep out the heat in the summer.

About Duo Combination Roofs:

If it is important that you get a great deal of natural sunshine into your conservatory, but still want your conservatory to feel more like an extension to your home rather than a sun room, then the Refresh duo conservatory roof is the best solution for you. The Refresh duo conservatory roof combines solid and glass panels to create your unique conservatory design.

The final decision you need to make is which extras you wish to add on to customise your conservatory design. Your conservatory roofing material will limit which finishing touches you can add on, for example, if you want a dramatic central lighting panel you will need to choose either the Refresh glass conservatory roof or the Refresh duo conservatory roof. For more information on the finishing touches, please visit our conservatory extras page.
