With the nights getting longer, and Christmas just around the corner, you want your conservatory to be as cosy as possible. Far too many conservatories in the UK suffer from being too hot in the Summer and too cold in the Winter. At Wolverhampton Glass, we want your conservatory to be a quiet, warm place to relax this Winter. Ways to achieve this in the short and long term include:

  • Investing in better glazing
  • Replacing your old polycarbonate roof
  • Glass conservatory roofs
  • Tiled conservatory roofs

Replace your conservatory roof

A faulty, outdated conservatory roof is one of the prime causes of a cold conservatory. Old polycarbonate roofs are particularly vulnerable to draughts and loss of heat-retention after their first few years. Of course, they could also prove vulnerable to leaking and severely damaging your home.

To improve your conservatory’s thermal performance, replace your conservatory roof before the harsh Winter months set in. A new glass roof or tiled roof will dramatically enhance the conservatory’s heat retention. Thanks to our glass roofs’ solar control panels, and our lightweight, draught-proofed tiles, either roofing solution will retain heat superbly, and transform your neglected conservatory into a much more comfortable living space.

Glass conservatory roofs

At Wolverhampton Glass, our glass conservatory roofs are made with solar-control glass. These state-of-the-art panels limit the entry of the sun’s powerful UV rays during Summer, preventing the space from becoming too hot. In Winter, they absorb and retain the sun’s heat and do a fantastic job of stopping heat from escaping. While also offering beautiful views, glass conservatory roofs do a great job of keeping your conservatory toasty and enjoyable to relax in all through Winter.

Tiled conservatory roof

For optimal thermal performance, however, tiled conservatory roofs are the best choice. Thanks to their opaque, lightweight material, they are exceptionally good at maintaining heat inside your conservatory. With U-Values as low as just 0.14W/m²k, their outstanding thermal performance is certain to keep your conservatory warm throughout Winter.

In addition to this, tiled conservatory roofs offer properties the look of a more permanent extension. Available in a range of popular colours, including Red Brick, Burnt Ember and Charcoal, these stunning tiles will enhance your home’s aesthetics as well as its thermal performance.

Upgrade your conservatory windows and doors

Older windows and doors that are starting to underperform are sure to make your conservatory a draughty and uncomfortable space. Without quality, efficient glazing, the glass will allow draughts to pass through, and your home’s heat to escape. This often happens with old, single-glazed windows, or windows that have been poorly installed. Gaps in the mechanism allow for air to leak in and out of your home.

your conservatory is becoming a cold and unused space, consider upgrading to double and triple glazed windows with low U-Values. These will achieve low rates of thermal transmittance, preventing the outside cold from getting in, and the inside heat from getting out. The results? A conservatory that maintains a cosy temperature all through Winter and helps you to save on your energy bills.

We supply a full range of uPVCaluminium, and timber windows and doors that can be made to measure for any conservatory. With a full choice of materials, you can choose an option that suits the aesthetic character of your home.

Could I just put on record how impressed we have been with Mick and the team who came to lay the base last week.
They arrived promptly, worked very hard and efficiently, left everything tidy, and above all they have done an excellent job in just a few days.
I assume we were lucky enough to have had your A team working here. If they are not recognised as such, well they should be!
Please thank them on our behalf for doing an excellent job.
Thanks again

Mr and Mrs Pilkington

Just wanted to thank you all for the installations carried out at my house last week. The window fitters were great, and I have to pass on an extra special thanks for the chap who came in on the Friday to single handedly fit the doors. He was brilliant and did an amazing job. All your fitters kept me informed what was going on and left no mess. So happy with the result. Many thanks to you too Matt, for juggling jobs to keep my kitchen refit on schedule. Much appreciated.

Ms Chambers

I would like to thank all at Wolverhampton Glass for an exceptionally professional and satisfactory Warmer Roof installation carried out by Carl, Alan, and Brian over the last few days. Even though the weather was less than ideal the guys worked tirelessly to ensure that all aspects of the installation went smoothly. Where there were issues, they were sorted with the minimum of fuss and their tidiness and attention to detail was impressive and greatly appreciated.
