Conservatory Roof Material
Choosing the appropriate roof for your conservatory is an important decision and with all the issues that need to be considered, not an easy one to make. Conservatory designers will concern themselves with the appearance, architects with specification and builders with what they are familiar with or what is easiest for them to install.
So try to get some independent advice. it’s a good idea to discuss with friends and neighbours the experiences they may have had with a conservatory roof or with an installation company that works with different materials and has no axe to grind over a specific solution. Also think about the conservatory positioning as this should influence the decision you will make over the type of conservatory roof you will install.
The appearance of the roof will be the most important issue for many people and if your conservatory is a major investment, don’t penny-pinch by installing a cheap roof especially if you want to use your conservatory all year round. A low cost roof might be cheaper to install, but in the long-term your running costs may be more expensive as your heating bills will be higher in the winter. What’s more, during hot summer months the conservatory may become too hot and uncomfortable to spend time in, especially if you have a south-facing conservatory.
