Has any one replaced their poly carbon conservatory roof with one of the new tiled ones currently being advertised which are supposed to help it keep cool in summer and warmer in the winter? If so does it work and was it worth the money?
We boil in summer (south facing) and freeze in winter but its a lovely place to be in the rest of the time. just would like to be able to be in there more! perspective I didn't know glass ones were any better than the polycarbon ones? Is it special solar glass or something? and how much is not cheap? Ours is a lean to type across the back of our house 6m by 3m approx
I have a friend with a glass roof and the conservatory is only a degree or two cooler than the rest of the house. We have been quoted 11K ( big room 5 m x 3m). The roof is insulated with some special stuff and reflects light back and is designed to be warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Still humming and ha- ing.
I have a conservatory that has a polarised glass roof. It's useable all year round as we had it built as a playroom. Also warm enough in the winter . Do it, I don't know who designed plastic roofs , they are noisy and ugly.
I had a glass roof on my south facing conservatory. It was fine during the day in both summer and winter as the sun heated the room and the rest of the house. We made the mistake of open plan to the kitchen and as soon as it got dark in the winter we froze. Never again!
