Replacement Conservatory Roofs

A conservatory is more than just an extension to a home; it’s a valuable asset to a property. But all too often, tired and ill-insulated conservatories leave homeowners with a redundant room that can only be utilised during certain times in the year – hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

Proven to be more energy-efficient than polycarbonate, glass is now being widely specified for conservatory roofs and is now more regularly specified as a replacement for old polycarbonate conservatory roofs.Chosen for its enhanced performance, high performance glazing is now the favoured solution due to a variety of additional properties such as: self-cleaning, solar control, noise control and enhanced thermal insulation – a simple step that can have a tremendous effect on the way a conservatory looks, feels and sounds.By replacing your old conservatory roof with insulating glass units (IGUs) you can help to reduce heating bills and create an inviting space that will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.To achieve the optimum performance levels in terms of self-cleaning, solar control and thermal insulation, combine a glass from the Pilkington Activ™ range with an inner pane of low-emissivity glass from the Pilkington K Glass™ range.Upgrading Your Conservatory with Replacement Conservatory RoofsInstead of replacing the whole structure, a process that is both expensive and disruptive, homeowners can upgrade their conservatory by simply replacing the old roof with a new glass roof, incorporating one of the products from the Pilkington Activ™ range.This will eliminate many of the problems associated with even modern, plastic-roofed conservatories at a fraction of the cost of a new conservatory.
