Benefits of upgrading your old conservatory
Like all things in life, your conservatory roof won’t last forever. Over time the windows and roof have to handle with all the harsh weather conditions and not look as nice as you want them too. Upgrading your conservatory roof doesn’t just improve the aesthetic and feel of your home but can also help keep your home warmer, reduce damp and condensation, as well as even reducing your energy bills.
Top signs that it’s time to upgrade your conservatory
If you’re noticing that condensation has started to form between the panes of the glass, it is a major sign that double glazing has failed and it will no longer perform efficiently. Meaning a lot of the home’s heat is going escaping through the window.
– Draughts coming in
The conservatory act as a shield to keep cold air out of the house and hold the warmth inside throughout the winter months. If your conservatory is fairly cold and has a breeze, it suggests that the windows and roof might not be working as they should and could be been costing you more in your heating bills.
The roof takes the most beating from the harsh weather conditions we face in the UK. Hefty rain and extreme wind can have major impacts on the roof and its fitting over time. It’s best to check your conservatory roof frequently to make sure it is clear of slush and any build up.
– Your conservatory roof is 20+ years old
Conservatory roofs face a lot over their lifetime, bad weather being one of the main cause when it comes to your conservatory roof. This can mean the roof takes a fair bit of battering when it comes down to the weather. We recommend that the roof is changed after 20+ years. This would also give you the opportunity to change the roof to a different style such as glass, tiled or even a hybrid conservatory roof which is part solid and part glass.
