When you’re considering replacing your conservatory roof, you may be wondering what options you have, and which is the best for you. Two of the most popular replacement roof options are tiled and glass conservatory roofs. Although they would both make fantastic additions to your Buckinghamshire home, they do offer completely different looks and their own range of benefits. Our comprehensive guide will help you make an informed decision about your replacement roof.

Tiled roof vs glass roof: Energy efficiency

Our glass conservatory roofs have been expertly manufactured using state-of-the-art solar control glass. The glass reduces the amount of heat that enters your home by reflecting and absorbing heat and filtering light to reduce harsh glare. Achieving exceptional U-values as low as 1.0W/m2k, you’re guaranteed year-round comfort. You’ll notice an immediate difference in the temperature retention of your conservatory. It’ll no longer get too warm in the summer or too cold in the winter.

Our tiled conservatory roofs offer outstanding thermal performance, achieving U-values as low as 0.14W/m2k! You’ll receive a comfortable living space that you can use all year round. The hardwearing tiles prevent your home from overheating in the summer whilst keeping the cold at bay during the winter. Your roof will be completely weatherproof and can actually eliminate the sound of rainfall in your conservatory.

Tiled roof vs glass roof: Durability & maintenance

A glass roof is a long-term investment that will refresh your conservatory for years to come. Our glass conservatory roofs are sure to last between 20-30 years, we do recommend that you perform regular cleaning and maintenance checks on your roof in order to prolong its lifespan. Our roofs are always manufactured with self-cleaning glass to ensure your roof stays perfect. Self-cleaning glass uses natural UV rays from the sun to break down organic dirt that has gathered on your roof. Rainfall will evenly wash small debris away ensuring your roof is clean and streak free.

Tiled roofs are generally longer lasting with an average lifespan of over 50 years with absolutely no maintenance required! We do suggest performing regular maintenance checks to remove large bits of debris that may have fallen onto your roof.

All our conservatory roof replacements have been rigorously tested to ensure they surpass industry security standards. They are all compliant with current building regulations and we ensure to install them within the same regulations.

Tiled roof vs glass: Aesthetics

There are very few differences between the performance of our tiled and glass conservatory roofs, which is why we recommend you make your choice based on the aesthetics.

If you’re wanting a traditional or like-for-like conservatory replacement a glass roof is the perfect solution for you. It provides a modern twist on a classic style; glass roofs are a versatile solution that suits traditional and contemporary properties. To further complement your home, you can customise your frame’s colour. We have a large collection of RAL colours for you to choose from including popular shades such as Chartwell green, natural oak and slate grey.

Glass roofs flood your conservatory with natural light, brightening up your home to create a comfortable and positive environment to be in. A clear roof will create the illusion of a lifted ceiling which makes it look like you have more space than you do.
