Why Our Warmer Roofs Have the Lowest U-Values on the Market
As energy costs continue to rise, having an energy-efficient home is now more important than ever. To save money on your bills and reduce your eco impact, you should use insulated materials and energy-efficient design options wherever possible – and that goes for the roof of your new conservatory or extension, too.
Although any tiled roof will provide more insulation than a glass or polycarbonate roof, none can match the outstanding efficiency offered by our Warmer Roofs. With top-level insulation and an unrivalled U-value of 0.12Wm²K, they stand at the pinnacle of energy-efficient roof designs.
We’ve taken a closer look at why our roofs are so well-insulated below. Keep reading to find out why choosing one for your conservatory or extension is a fantastic way to improve its energy efficiency and enjoy a comfortable space all year long!
1. Premium Multi-Foil Insulation
The remarkable energy efficiency of our roofs comes down to what’s inside them: the insulation.
Our roofs contain 125mm of HYBRIS, a premium insulation material made from polyethylene foams bonded to aluminium-coated polyethylene foils. It has an innovative honeycomb structure composed of low emissivity cavities, which are shielded from dust and excessive air movement. The cavities team up with low emissivity external films to provide even more thermal resistance. With a core declared thermal conductivity (λD) as low as 0.033 W/mK, HYBRIS provides a thermal resistance as high as 6.20 m²K/W – more than enough to keep your home cosy in the winter and cool in the summer.
2. Insulated Plasterboard
HYBRIS insulation is effective enough on its own, but it goes even further when paired with 53mm insulated plasterboard.
Installed beneath the insulation, the plasterboard boosts thermal efficiency while acting as a protective shield against moisture. It works hand in hand with the tile breather mesh to keep your conservatory or extension free from condensation build-up, so there’s no risk of damp or mould creeping in.
3. Naturally Insulated Timber
We make our roof frames from timber, one of the most naturally insulated materials on the planet.
Timber is made up of tiny, elongated cells that are packed closely together. These cells contain air pockets, which provide natural insulation. The air trapped within the wood’s cells acts as a barrier to heat transfer, reducing the flow of heat energy through the material and helping keep your conservatory or extension warmer.
Even better? We make sure to only use timber from sustainable sources and incorporate recycled materials in our production process. This helps us dramatically reduce waste that ends up in landfills, and results in your roof being as eco-friendly as it can be.
