What You Need To Know About Conservatory Bespoke Glazed RoofsWhat You Need To Know About Conservatory Bespoke Glazed Roofs

What do you think of a sunroom or conservatory at home? This is an additional room where you can enjoy more sunlight than in any other part of your house. Having this room extended at home will surely mean that you are going to spend more but it will all be worth it. This conservatory can be converted into your greenhouse or a little garden inside the house. This room can also have an uninterrupted view of your beautiful garden. Conservatories could be the best part of your house when you have it designed so well.

It is important though that your conservatory should be energy saving. The use of bespoke glazed roofs will make the place look good and save you energy as well. These types of glazed roofs can be purchased commercially. You may opt to install them on your own but it might be safer if you have the professionals do it. There are certain things that you can do and execute perfectly but if you are not used to doing this, you may just obtain disappointing results. Proper installation will ensure that the roof will function the way it is intended to.

These bespoke glazed roofs can be made out of polycarbonate. This is a type of plastic that is best characterised for being translucent. Polycarbonate is also the most popular material that is used in conservatory roofs. The material is popularly used because it is affordable, lightweight, and easy to install, which are its advantages over glass. Moreover, it also offers the same standard double glazing, light transmission, and insulation as glass roofs. Depending on the conservatory roof provider that you have gone to, you may be offered this polycarbonate material with different millimetres of thickness. The thicker the material is, the better it is expected to perform.

If you can find extra thick polycarbonate, it will be better for your conservatory roof even if you may have to pay extra for it. You can expect to have a higher level of insulation. It can give you the temperature that you need to feel at home, cold during summer and warm during winter. When you can find this type of roof, you do not really have to think of your electrical bills as your burden. Another benefit from polycarbonate is that it helps make your sunroom soundproof and reduce the glare of the sun. It does not demand high maintenance cleaning but performs with high standards.

There are different polycarbonate finishes too. Clear finish lets the most amount of light in though it does not have the same effect as glass. Bronze finish has a slight tint that blocks the edge of sunlight. Opal finish helps block out direct light that you do not need blinds. This is ideal for north-facing conservatories. Bronze on opal finish is a hybrid with opal inside and bronze outside. This is ideal for wood-grained conservatories. Smart polycarbonate finish has excellent U-values and protects conservatories from solar gain. It reflects 90% of solar gain that makes it ideal for south-facing conservatories.
