If you find that your Victorian conservatory roof is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter it may be time to upgrade and change your roof.
If your conservatory is over 10years old then you probably missed the performance glass revolution that transformed the conservatory roof industry. At www.diyconservatoryquotes.co.uk we can now design and supply you with a replacement performance glass roof at a fraction of the cost of renewing the complete conservatory.
Our solar improved solar control roofs if selected contain Pilkington active blue K heat saving glass with a U value of 1.2U. If this is compared to a normal glass roof the U value of a standard toughened glass 24mm roof would be around 2.5u ( The lower the U value the better its heat saving properties.)
Pilkington Active is a blue tint glass that has a double action that combines true self-cleaning properties with a medium solar control to create a more useable room space for more of the year. The unique classic blue tint helps to keep the internal temperatures cooler whilst the self cleaning properties make the Pilkington Activ Victorian roof glass system ideal for use in hard to reach places.
How It Works
The unique dual-action self-cleaning coating is located on the external pane of glass.
The coating has revolutionary photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties, and works in two stages:
Stage 1 - The coating reacts with natural daylight to break down and loosen organic dirt.
Stage 2 - When it rains, instead of forming droplets, the water spreads evenly over the surface of the glass, helping to wash away any dirt and reduce streaking.
Self cleaning glass reduces the need for manual cleaning
Additional medium solar control properties , reducing solar heat
Sleek Rafters and glass lines along with a stylish blue tint modernise and improve your conservatories look
Low exterior reflections improve aesthetics
Toughened Safety Glass (Victorian Conservatory)
All our replacement conservatory roofs are toughened safety glass ensuring that in the event of a breakage the glass will shatter into tiny pieces just like a car window screen
Our replacement glass conservatory roofs are significantly quieter than a polycarbonate roof. Maybe you have changed the way you want to use your conservatory and that previous kids playroom now needs to a an adult retreat to watch the TV or read the Sunday paper. If you have sat in your polycarbonate roofed conservatory even with the thicker 35mm polycarbonate you will know how noisy it can be.
We have a list of recommended fitters that will take care of your Victorian glass replacement roof. With the exception of large roofs (4500mm and over ) most of our replacement roofs are fitted in a day to minimise disruption to you.
