Glazing & Glass – Why is it Important?
More than twice as much natural light comes through a roof windows vs a side window of the same size, so rooflights determine how much natural light enters your conservatory.
A lack of, or small glazing panels will mean less light can enter your conservatory. Unsurprisingly, this will mean a darker space, both for your conservatory and the adjoining rooms. On the other hand, more large glass panels in the roof will make for a brighter, lighter and more inviting interior for your conservatory.
Flood Your Conservatory with Natural light – Full Length Glazing
If you want to invite lots of natural light into your home, you’ll probably want to pick a conservatory roof that uses full length glazing panels as rooflights. These light inducing panels fit neatly into your solid conservatory roof, from the ridge at the top to the eaves at the bottom.
Depending on your roof shape there may be restrictions on where these can be placed. These large areas catch as much sunlight as possible, inviting it to stay in your conservatory. As a result, your conservatory will be a bright room perfect for curling up with a book while admiring the garden.
Want to get even more benefits from your solid conservatory roof’s full length glazing? Well then, take a look at the performance glazing options that each conservatory roof offers to keep a constant comfortable temperature, reduce glare from the sun and even protect your furniture with high UV protection. With some systems you can also choose to have an opening roof light by adding a ‘vent’ to the glass panel where a small window opens inside the larger glass panel.
If a bright, modern style is your thing, full length glazing will also grant you a contemporary looking conservatory, inside and out.
Little Windows, Flexible Placement - Velux Style Windows
Not so keen on having large glass panels in your solid conservatory roof? Don’t sweat; there are other options out there for you, including Velux style windows.
These are typically smaller windows or rooflights that fit inside your solid conservatory roof, surrounded by the tiles or finish you choose. Pretty much being able to be placed anywhere on your new solid conservatory roof, they’re a very flexible way of bringing light into your conservatory. As you might expect, they’re often much smaller than full length glazing, but be warned, sometimes these can be more expensive than the full height glazing option.
Being smaller, velux style roof lights are more limited in the amount of natural light they can provide for your conservatory. That could affect the neighbouring rooms, too, creating a less bright environment. Glass choices are often more limited on velux style roof lights too. However on the plus side you can choose an opening style window if you want the whole window to be able to open.
What if I Don’t Want any Glazing?
Not a fan of glazing or glass panels in your solid conservatory roof? That’s fine too! You can, of course, choose not to have any glass in your conservatory roof. That’ll give you a totally solid roof with no rooflights or glass panels.
Choosing the Right Performance Glass for Your Conservatory
If you want the choice for flexible glazing options, full length glass panels are the way to go, but we recommend you discuss these options with your solid conservatory roof installer.
Do you live in a shaded spot that likes to hide from the sun? If so, heat retention will be a big deal for you, so make sure you choose a glazing option with a low U-value and lots of light transmission.
However, if your conservatory is in a sun trap, you might want glass that provides the perfect mix of solar rejection and UV protection.
There’s even self cleaning glass if you want to remove every ounce of hassle from your routines!
