Sometimes all that is needed is an upgrade to your current roofing system. Perhaps you have a glass roof conservatory that you would like to put a tiled roof on. Or maybe you would like to include a lantern style roof to an extension. Alpha Windows will be on hand to help with the various options that you can choose to revitalise an existing conservatory or include in your new extension.

Glass Roofs

By changing your old polycarbonate or glass roof to a newer style glass roof you will reap the benefit of the more modern energy efficient glass that is now used. This will help with temperature control so that you can enjoy your conservatory all year round. Special glass can also be chosen too which reflects and filters the sun’s rays keeping the room cooler.

Solid Tiled Roofs

Adding a solid tiled roof to your conservatory can offer several benefits, transforming the space into a more functional, comfortable, and energy-efficient part of your home. Solid tiled roofs provide superior thermal insulation compared to traditional glass or polycarbonate roofs. They keep the conservatory warmer in winter by retaining heat and cooler in summer by preventing excessive heat buildup, ensuring a comfortable environment year-round. Tiled roofs can also reduce external noise, thermal efficiency, increase privacy and reduce glare. Add on the fact that they are relevant low maintenance and last for years due to their weather resistant qualities they really are the elite choice in roof.

Lantern Roofs

This roof will really add a focal point to any living space. The central raised section of a lantern roof allows sunlight to flood in, creating a bright and airy space. The additional height created by a lantern roof can make the living space feel more spacious and open. This feeling of expansiveness can be particularly advantageous if your space is small or if you want to create a sense of grandeur. Lantern roofs can be designed in various shapes and sizes, allowing for customization based on your specific preferences and the available space. This versatility ensures that the conservatory can be tailored to meet your aesthetic and functional requirements.
