Is a glass conservatory roof better?
A glass roof is significantly better than a polycarbonate roof in many ways. Double glazing will help to keep your conservatory warm during the winter months, saving you money on your energy bills in the long run. Furthermore, double glazing will allow natural light in your conservatory extension. Choose from several different double glazing options.

Self Cleaning Glass
• Reacts with UV rays in sunlight to generate a photocatalytic process (loosens and breaks down organic dirt particles on the surface of the glass)
• The surface coating is hydrophilic (attracts water so that it spreads and forms a thin ﬁ lm that ‘sheets’ away quickly, and dries off without leaving unsightly ‘drying spots’)
• Self-cleaning glass leaves (less dirt and grime adhering to the glass resulting in the glass staying cleaner for longer, meaning less maintenance is needed)
• Air-to-air heat transmission (loss or gain due to thermal conductance and the difference in indoor and outdoor temperatures)
• U-Value decreases (the amount of heat that is transferred through the glazing material)
• Lower the U-Value, the more restrictive the fenestration product is to heat transfer (Reciprocal of the R-Value)
• Strikes an optimum balance between economy and ecology (the lower the U-Value, the more efficient the insulation)
• Solar control glass helps regulate the amount of solar energy that enters a building
• Solar control glass saves money by reducing the amount of energy used (heating and air conditioning systems, and boosts comfort levels inside the building by controlling indoor temperatures and light levels)
• Measures light passing through the glass. Too much light can create an uncomfortable environment with glare becoming a particular problem. Insufficient light transmittance can result in reduced visibility.
