Glass Conservatory vs Tiled Conservatory Roofs

There’s no doubt about it that a conservatory can give you that little bit more space or provide a pleasant indoor space that also connects with the outside. If your conservatory is 15 years or older it is most likely that it will need to either be replaced or have maintenance work done. Conservatories are the one part of your home that you can completely design yourself from scratch and can give your home a new lease of life. The main considerations when choosing a conservatory is whether you go for a glass or tiled roof. Obviously, each of them has its pros and cons when we compare them together. It mainly depends on the style you are going for, are you looking for a more modern and fresh look or the more traditional look. Below we have gone through benefits for both to help make the process easier for you.

Do you need a new conservatory roof? If you have a conservatory roof that you want to replace it can be tricky to know what to go for tiles or glass.

Benefits of a glass conservatory roof

One way that you can have your conservatory is with a glass roof. This is seen as the more modern option of the conservatory, glass roofing comes with the following advantages:

Energy efficiency

Insulating glass roofs can reduce heating bills and create a conducive living space, therefore, keeping the room hotter during the winter seasons and cooler during summertime. Glass roofing reflects most of the sun rays away from the glass keeping it cooler during the summer.

Noise reduction

When it is raining the glass conservatory roof provides a quiet and peaceful environment in the conservatory. Glass roofing has great sound absorption, which offers over 50 per cent noise reduction.

Benefits of Tiled Conservatory Roofs

Both roofs obviously offer durability and will last a long time, but some people have found that they prefer a tiled roof. Here is an explanation on the benefits of tiled conservatory roofs:

  • Well cured tiles are rock solid and when used for roofing purposes, are likely to serve you for a period of between 40 and 60 years.
  • With fewer worries about possible breakages, tiled conservatory roofs are also very easy to install.
  • Tiles hold more heat and therefore are suitable in cold weather when the quality of heat retention in roofs is of high necessity.
  • The roof will need very little maintenance

Conservatories are a great addition to any home, making use of the outdoor space to create an amazing room to make memories. Some also see it as bringing the outdoors indoors due to the fact conservatories always give a light, fresh and calming feel.
