Should I Still Consider Glass Conservatory Roofs?
For customers in Cheltenham & Gloucester wanting to replace a glass conservatory roof, it can be difficult to know what option to choose. Glass conservatory roofs are no longer a default option in the market alongside tiled conservatory roofs, solid conservatory roofs and roof lanterns. In some corners, the glass design is seen as outdated and one that is no longer a good replacement for a conservatory. That’s why High-Tech Windows has created this advice article on glass conservatory roofs and why they can still offer great performance for your Gloucestershire home.
Eliminating the Issues of the Past
Old glass conservatory roofs had a history of becoming unusable for the Cheltenham homeowner. In the summer months, these roof profiles would make your conservatory an unusable space. The harsh UV rays can cause damage to your home. In the winter, these roofs can let the elements in, and require excess central heating to warm your extension.
With modern glass conservatory roofs, these issues can be eliminated. Most glass profiles can be fitted with smart glazing, stopping your Cheltenham conservatory from overheating in the warm months and retaining heat in the winter. This means you can use your extension throughout the year, no matter what the weather outside is doing.
The changeable Gloucestershire weather had a reputation of making its way through old glass conservatory roof profiles. Now, some conservatory roof manufacturers use NASA satellite data to ensure the replacement roof can cope with the weather loads in and around your property. Modern glass conservatory roofs are fitted with gaskets and adjustable unique top caps. This provides water tightness in winds of up to 130mph.
Cheltenham customers no longer just have to choose just one type of glazing for glass conservatory roofs. These replacement roof profiles can be fitted with different glazing options in a selection of colours, offering the best fit for their home. Other customisable features include optional insulated pelmets, columns, finials, crestings and a choice of four unique cornices. With modern glass conservatory roofs, you don’t just have to settle for the same old colours.
Modern glass conservatory roofs won’t disrupt the day-to-day life of the Cheltenham homeowner to install. Newer designs are created for a fast fit, the first time. Cutting and drilling is done-off site, with click-sit speed locks and top-caps allowing the frame to just click into place onto the existing frame of your conservatory or extension.
