Many homeowners in the UK are choosing to get a conservatory rather than building an extension. This is because conservatories are quicker to install, and they allow more natural light into your home. They also allow homeowners to enjoy their gardens more often. 
Traditionally, conservatory roofs are made from polycarbonate or glass to let in more light. Unfortunately, this also means homeowners can’t enjoy their conservatories all year round. 

What issues come with having a polycarbonate  or glass roof? 

Although you will benefit from more natural light, you may find that you can’t comfortably relax in your conservatory all year round. Polycarbonate and glass roofs fail to regulate temperature effectively. This will lead to your conservatory becoming unbearably hot in the summer and uncomfortably cold in the winter. 
Other factors to consider are longevity and maintenance. Polycarbonate roofs can damage easily, making them look tired and unsightly after a while. Glass roofs are more durable but will need regular maintenance. Glass will become murky over time from rainwater, and debris can start to accumulate on the roof. 
If you’re looking for a quiet space to relax, then we don’t recommend polycarbonate roofs. When it rains, you will know about it. It can become very loud. Glass roofs are a better option, but a solid conservatory roof will provide more serenity and quiet.

Better insulation and heat retention in your conservatory
