It’s no surprise that conservatory sales are increasing. This is because a modern conservatory is an extension to the home that is no longer only for the summer months but a versatile space that is ideal for relaxing, dining and socialising in all year round.
Glass technology has improved significantly and there are now more solutions than ever before when it comes to maintaining a comfortable temperature in the home throughout the year. Not only that, a conservatory will add substantial value and space to your property. They are also a great home investment for someone needing extra living space but doesn’t want the costs and hassle associated with moving home.
There is also a rising trend within the UK to replace the roof on conservatories with a solid, tiled roof. This allows homeowners to make better use of the space as it reduces rain noise, appears cleaner and makes it easier to regulate the temperature. This type of roof also makes a conservatory look more like an extension of the home.
As a solid roof helps to solve temperature problems by providing effective insulation, it in turn reduces heating costs. Of course, having a solid roof will also reduce the brightness of the room, especially during the summer months, and there are options to add velux-style windows. This then means you can enjoy the brightness of a traditional glass-roof conservatory, but keep control of the temperature.
