Glass Conservatory Roof Conversions
Should you have an old glass conservatory roof, the likelihood is that you would be best suited considering either a polycarbonate or tiled alternative. Solid polycarbonate is a particularly good choice, as you will likely not need to source new glazing bars and it provides a similar appearance.
Those who would like to replace their existing glass panels with new glass ensure you consider the different variants available today. In particular you should consider double glazed panels with an argon filling, which is shown to prevent heat escaping during cooler months. This also helps to keep cold air out.
If glare is an issue during summer, you'll find tinted glass panels too. Solid polycarbonate is also available in tinted varieties, providing you with an ideal alternative to glass whilst maintaining the same appearance.

Tiled Conservatory Roof Conversions
Those looking to minimise heat loss through their conservatory may want to consider a tiled conservatory roof. Not only do tiles provide greater insulation but they also allow you to achieve a gorgeous finish when completing a conservatory roof replacement.
Whilst roof tiles are typically thinner than both glass and polycarbonate, the overall build-up of a tiled conservatory roof provides superb insulation. With glazing bars not being required, there is also less chance of drafts and cold air seeping through small gaps.
Traditional concrete and slate roof tiles provide brilliant insulation, although demand greater structural support. Plastic or metal tiles provide similar insulating capabilities whilst being considerably more lightweight at approximately 15kg per square meter.
When choosing conservatory roof tiles you have a choice of profiles. You can also choose from individual tiles or panels, with the latter being easier to fit by homeowners and tradesman. Tiles are also wonderfully easy to fit onto a lean-to conservatory, with a traditional Edwardian or Victorian conservatory requiring a few additional flashings.
A tiled conservatory roof will typically last in excess of 50 years with little maintenance being required. Most manufacturers also offer up to 40 years guarantee on their roof tiles, providing you with confidence in your conservatory roof replacement.
