What is the best way to insulate your conservatory?
Be aware of conservatory insulation and conservatory cladovers! The best way to keep your conservatory well insulated is by having a replacement conservatory roof installed.

Some companies offer conservatory insulation and cladovers as an option for improving the performance of your conservatory. However, while this may seem like a brilliant fix to your problems, there are numerous issues surrounding these techniques. This type of conservatory insulation uses a method of simply cladding an old conservatory roof.

Why you should be wary of conservatory insulation
Ther are many risks associated with this method of improving the thermal efficiency of your conservatory.
In a conservatory, you have glazing bars which, as the name suggests, hold the glazing in place within your conservatory roof. We use Ultraframe conservatory roofs, which, in their design, provide rigidity, assist with ventilation, and water drainage.
If a company is drilling into these bars, the functionality can be compromised. This means you lose vital stability and structural support that your glazing bars hold.
The next stage is adding timber bars to the glazing bars. Our conservatories are structurally designed not to have other components added, which can hinder its performance. Our conservatory roofs are built to withstand wind, rain, and snowfall. By adding timber to the structure of your conservatory, you are altering the calculations that have been made to keep your conservatory roof strong and weatherproof.
3. Thermal Barriers
After adding timber bars, a thermal quilt and uPVC cladding are added to the structure. Again, this makes a big contribution to the overall performance and structural identity of your conservatory. This stage also hinders the ventilation within your conservatory. It is natural for heat to build up in the summer months, and having these layers added to your conservatory means hot air can not escape from your home. This can lead to swelling or warping of the glazing bars, which will damage the structure of your conservatory roof.
4. Natural Light
Adding these layers to your conservatory roofs means that the amount of natural light is limited. This can lead to you having a darker and warmer room as a result of conservatory insulation. This is a very important factor to consider when you are deciding whether conservatory insulation is right for you or not. This is in contrast to our replacement conservatory roofs which can be installed with the addition of Velux windows, allowing natural light to flood your home.
5. Fire Safety
The addition of these materials, especially timber, can help to increase the risk of fire within your property. The original conservatory roof has gone through rigid testing for fire compliance and monitoring, but when additional substances are added to a structure, there is no doubt this will affect the results of testing.
Keep your home and family safe with our Ultraframe replacement conservatory roofs.
6. Your Guarantee
When you adapt the structure of your roof with conservatory insulation, you are also affecting your guarantee. As other components have been added to the original structure, your warranty becomes invalid.
