Deciding Between Polycarbonate and Glass Roofs

Deciding Between Polycarbonate and Glass Roofs

A lot of homeowners are keen to add value to their properties whilst maximising their living space; which could include investing in a conservatory. These extensions consist of glass roofs and walls which are typically attached to a house on one side. They can fulfil many purposes and can be used as a greenhouse, a sunroom or even an extension of your existing kitchen.

Conservatories are incredibly functional, and visually pleasing, serving as a stunning addition to your home. If you have been thinking about buying a conservatory for your home, you will need to decide between a polycarbonate and glass roof.

For this blog, Natralight will let you know the difference between the two.

Comparing Polycarbonate and Glass Roofs

Polycarbonate roofs are often the choice of homeowners working on a tight budget. They do lack the natural insulation qualities of glass roofs and are not as aesthetically pleasing.

Glass, on the other hand, is energy efficient, retains heat and will be assured to keep you warm during the colder winter months. This will also help you to save money on energy bills meaning you won't need to use heating appliances such as electric heaters as much.

Another big benefit of using glass for your conservatory roof or your roof, in general, is that it is less prone to scratches plus it is weather resistant. This is increasingly important during the winter when environmental conditions can be harsh.
