What is a Conservatory Roof?

A conservatory roof is arguably the most important part of any conservatory or extension. This roofing system sits on the window and door frames, keeping out the changeable Gloucestershire weather. In the 1980s, a common conservatory roof profile was the glass design. This style has been refined over the years to meet the standards of the modern homeowner.

For the modern Cheltenham homeowner, there is more than one roof option you can decide for your property. As well as the glass conservatory roof option, there is the basic polycarbonate conservatory roofs. You can now also choose tiled designs, roofs with solid composite panels, and roof lanterns for your conservatory. Each one offers a range of different benefits to your conservatory.

What’s the Best Type of Conservatory Roof?

This question can only be answered by what you’re looking for from a new conservatory roof. If you’re wanting a space that you can flood with light, a glass design is the better option. This roof option allows the Cheltenham homeowner to take in the changeable seasons from the comfort of indoors.

For homeowners wanting to make more of an extension from their conservatory, a solid or tiled conservatory roof is the perfect option. These roofing options allow you to make full use of your extension throughout the year, no matter what the seasons outside are doing. Both options can have an internal pelmet included within the design, which can be plastered to make your conservatory look like a real room.

Solid Roof Conservatory

A solid conservatory roof is a perfect upgrade to old polycarbonate designs. Panes of glazing can be incorporated into the profile, flooding your Cheltenham home with light. Unlike polycarbonate conservatory roofs, you won’t be deafened in heavy rain. This roof profile is more robust by its design, providing more protection for your property.

The tile conservatory roofs have customisable tile colours. These match the existing tiles of your Cheltenham property, blending into the rest of the extension. As with the solid design, this roof can have panels of glazing incorporated into the design, and can be fit with an internal pelmet. This option will truly give your conservatory the feel of a real extension.
