Replace Your Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof With Glass
We've been established for over 20 years and in that time have seen a real evolution in the standard of materials and conservatory designs available. The biggest leap forward in recent years has been in the standard of glazing. Advances in nano-coating technology have meant that almost transparent coatings can be applied to glass that have absolutely revolutionised the achievable thermal performance of a glass roof conservatory. It now makes real sense to replace a polycarbonate conservatory roof with glass.
The Benefits of Replacing a Polycarbonate Roof With Glass
Replacing an existing polycarbonate roof with glass will provide the following benefits:
Improved Heat Retention - Latest technology glass coating can provide heat retention performance 63% better than triple wall polycarbonate sheeting
Reduced Solar Heat Gain - For South facing conservatories the very latest sealed units reject up to 80% of solar heat, this optional coating should not be used on North facing projects
Reduced rain noise
Improved light transmission
Convenience of self-cleaning glass
The Complications of a Project To Replace a Polycarbonate Roof With Glass
Of course a project to replace a polycarbonate roof with high performance glass has complications, not least the fact that glass is much heavier than polycarbonate sheeting. The additional applied load means that the existing roof structure is unlikely to be adequate. At Vivaldi Construction we structurally prove every project we build to withstand winds in excess of 130mph. Mostly this type of project will need an entirely new roof, designed specifically for glass.
Our glass roofs benefit from a number of unique safety features, for example the glass retainers at the end of every rafter. We only install safety glass manufactured to BS EN 12600 class 1, installed in accordance with BS6262.
