Polycarbonate was a wonder material in its day but times have moved on and one of the best ways to ‘refresh’ your existing conservatory is to replace the polycarbonate roof with a new high performance glass replacement roofs.
High performance glass replacement roofs have three main properties – always ensure your roof features these properties;
Has great thermal performance. For roof glass, the target is to have a ‘U’ Value as low as possible, typically as low as 1.0 is possible in double glazed units.
Solar control – it is possible to exclude up to 83% of the suns energy with the correct specification
Self cleaning. The best high performance units use the energy of the sun to burn off organic deposits like bird droppings and fingerprints whilst the smooth coating allows water to ‘sheet off’ the surface, cleaning the dust and debris as it flows.
.A high performance glass roof allows a plentiful supply of natural light to come into your home whilst still being protected from the elements. A conservatory is a place in your home which can benefit from a great deal of natural light. Natural light is very good for moods, working and entertaining guests in sunnier months without having to tolerate harsh, unnatural light from bulbs. Not to mention the massive dose of vitamin D you will gain from exposure to all of that sunshine.
