Is a glass conservatory roof really the best?

Perfect for homeowners seeking to either reinvent or restore their property’s extended living space, a conservatory roof replacement is far more inexpensive than building a while new structure. Despite this, it maintains the same effect. One question we at Albion Windows get asked a lot, however, is which replacement roof solution is the best: Glass, Tiled or Warm? Thankfully we can give you the answer, actively offering all three.

The best conservatory roof is relative to your personal ambitions

First thing’s first, we firmly believe that there is no ‘best’ conservatory roof option. There might be a choice that’s best for you. In fact, we hope there is. But the fact of the matter is that all three roof systems we install each have their own perks, all suiting the specific homeowners each with their own ambitions and preferences. Now’s the time to explore these perks, and who knows? It might be the case that a glass conservatory roof is the best for you!

Breaking down the perks of Glass, Tiled, and Warm roofs

Glass roofs – Light-enhancing and natural

An illuminating conservatory roof option that helps provide extended living spaces with a light, airy, and natural feel, glass roofs can be installed in any thickness size between 24mm and 35mm. Tinted glass options can be integrated to always keep glare at an absolute minimum and a triple layer storm shield means that winds up to 130mph can be accounted for. The perfect choice for homeowners looking to shed more light on the situation.

  • Large influxes of natural sunlight entry for natural feel
  • Self-cleaning glass to break down dirt and stay crystal clear
  • Tinted glass option keeps glare to an absolute minimum
  • Thermally efficient system for lower heating bills
