What’s the Difference Between Solid & Tiled Conservatory Roofs?
For homeowners in Cheltenham & Gloucester looking to breathe life back into a conservatory, or add the final touch to an extension, it can be hard knowing what conservatory roof you can choose. There are several different options alongside the traditional polycarbonate and glass designs, with tiled and solid conservatory roofs now available. That’s why the High-Tech Windows team has created this advice article to help you understand the difference between tiled & solid conservatory roofs.
Aesthetically, both tiled & solid conservatory roofs look different. The solid conservatory roof uses composite panels, which are grey by colour. Although the direct replacement for polycarbonate, these roofs won’t deafen the homeowner during heavy rain. For Cheltenham homeowners that want to flood their property with light, glazing panels can be added to the design.
Tiled conservatory roofs are created to give your conservatory the look of a real extension. The roof tiles can be selected to match those of your Cheltenham home, further giving the look of a real extension. As with the solid design, of which these conservatory roofs can also be known, glazing panes can be added to the design.
Both the solid and tiled conservatory roofs offer a stunning look for the inside of your Cheltenham conservatory. These replacement roofs deliver a vaulted ceiling and an internal pelmet around the perimeter. Here, lights and speakers can be installed, creating a cosy atmosphere within your extension. Unlike the solid design, the tiled roof can be fitted with an optional external soffit, from which lights can be added.
Both solid and tiled conservatory roofs can be designed with decorative cornicing. This creates a tidy appearance for your roof, hiding the guttering and frame interface. A classic curved shape cornice looks great on the tiled conservatory roof, and three modern flat designs look stunning with the anthracite grey panels of the solid replacement roof.
Differ in Advantages
One of the main differences in the solid and tiled conservatory roof is the advantages they offer, and that is dependent upon your needs and priorities. Each roof can be added to Gable, Victorian, Georgian, Lean-To, P-Shape and T-Shape conservatories. Both designs are created using NASA satellite data, ensuring the roof will cope with the weather loads in and around your home.
