It’s no secret that conservatories make the perfect addition to a home because not only do they add space to your home in Lincoln, but they also add a great deal of value.
However, traditional conservatories are built from polycarbonate glass which unfortunately means this extra space becomes unusable for most of the year. With poor thermal performance, polycarbonate glass isn’t able to regulate the temperature in extreme weather, making a conservatory too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
A great solution for many Lincoln homeowners is replacing the more traditional glass conservatory roof with a solid roof. Made from either tiles or slate, solid roof replacements totally transform a conservatory into an extra room in the house that can be used all year round.
If you’re wondering whether it’s worth investing in putting a solid roof on your conservatory and want to find out which one would be the most suitable for your home, keep reading.
We’ve explored the true benefits of a solid conservatory roof replacement and have compared some of the different roof options available.
What is a solid conservatory roof?
A solid conservatory roof replaces traditional polycarbonate or glass roofs and is made of specialist roofing material which is built to last. Available in a wide choice of styles and colours, the solid roof coverings can make it a true extension of your home.
Replacing your old conservatory roof is a fantastic investment that can help to improve the overall look of your home and make you feel like you have a brand-new conservatory.
The benefits of a solid conservatory roof
If your existing conservatory is like a sunroom in the summer, the space isn’t well insulated and is unattractive to look at, a solid conservatory roof is a fantastic replacement for a polycarbonate roof. Here are some of the many benefits they add to your home:
1: More energy efficient
Solid roof replacements are incredibly thermally efficient which means that not only can they keep the temperature of the conservatory regulated during the summer and winter, they also help to make savings on heating bills by retaining a huge amount of heat, keeping the space well insulted.
2: Usable all-year long
Traditional conservatories become unbearable when the weather is too hot or too cold. But a solid roof replacement regulates the temperature which means, no matter the weather, the space can be used all year round.
For the first time, homeowners in Lincoln will be able to make the most of the additional space by fully transforming their conservatory into a home office, second living room, dining room or even home gym. The possibilities are endless with a solid conservatory roof replacement.
3: Improved security for your conservatory
With their robust design solid conservatory roofs offer an increased amount of security when compared with a polycarbonate or glass roof. The solid panels make them strong and secure helping to deter burglars.
4: Your conservatory blends to your home
Typically, conservatories are very unlikely to match the roof of your home. But with a wide range of styles and colours to choose from, which look very similar to traditional slate roofing, you can pick a style that compliments your house.
5: Adds value to your home
As a solid roof replacement makes a conservatory useable for 365 days per year, you have an additional functional living space in your home. This will most likely increase the value of your property, particularly if buyers can see you’ve fully transformed the interior and use the room regularly.
