How a Tiled Roof Improves the Comfort of Your Conservatory
Although glass and polycarbonate roofs have long been the go-to choice for conservatories, the arrival of tiled roofs has led to them facing some serious competition.
Tiled roofs, as the name suggests, are roofs made from a combination of tiles, timber, and insulation. While they might not offer the expansive views of traditional conservatory roofs, they make up for it with a host of benefits that can greatly enhance the comfort of your home. That’s why more and more people are choosing to swap their existing glass roofs for tiled ones, with some even opting to include them in their conservatory’s design right from the start.
At Trade Price Warmer Living, we’ve been specialising in self-build conservatories and extensions for nearly two decades. In the next section, we’ll dive into the three key ways a tiled roof will make your conservatory cosier all year round.
1. Regulates Temperature
Traditional glass or polycarbonate roofs are often chosen for the light and views they allow in, but they come with one major drawback: a lack of insulation. This means that heat can easily pass through them, turning your conservatory into a sauna in the summer and an icebox in the winter. In real-life terms, this limits your conservatory’s comfort to just the mild spring and autumn seasons, leaving it unused for virtually half of the year.
Tiled roofs, on the other hand, are excellent at regulating the temperature inside your conservatory. They’re often made from natural insulators like timber, which do a fantastic job of trapping warmth in the winter and keeping things cool in the summer. This means you’ll enjoy a more comfortable living space all year round and, as a bonus, save on energy bills since you won’t need to crank up the heating or air conditioning as much.
2. Reduces Noise
It’s hard to relax in your conservatory when you’re constantly bombarded by honking cars, barking dogs, and the hustle and bustle of daily life outside. While glass and polycarbonate roofs muffle some of the noise, they tend to let most in. As a result, your peaceful moments are limited to certain times of the day (or when you have a pair of noise-cancelling headphones on hand).
In comparison, tiled roofs are excellent at keeping external noise at bay. This is because their thicker and better-insulated materials make it tougher for noise to intrude. This noise reduction can turn your conservatory into a calm, quiet oasis where you can escape the chaos of the day, no matter how noisy it is outside.
3. Protects Against UV Rays
Glass and polycarbonate roofs are, of course, known for their transparency, which is fantastic for welcoming natural light into your space. However, this can backfire by leaving you and your furniture vulnerable to UV rays. Excessive exposure, especially during the hot summer months, can increase the risk of sunburn and heatstroke. Your furniture is also bound to experience fading over time due to constant UV exposure, requiring you to replace it a lot earlier than you’d hoped.
Choosing a tiled roof is a great way to protect your conservatory from the sun’s harsh UV rays. It effectively blocks them from reaching the interior of your home, which not only prevents your furnishings and decor from fading, but also helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
If you’re worried about not having enough light in your tiled roof conservatory, there’s a simple way to enjoy the best of both worlds: upgrading your roof with a skylight. This will give you more shade while still letting in plenty of natural light. Plus, you can even have it integrated with blinds to have total control over the lighting in your room!
