Conservatory Roof Insulation

Conservatories are a beautiful addition to any home. However, they have their downfalls. In most cases, a homeowner will agree that their conservatory is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Either extreme may eventually contribute to other problems, such as mould, glare, condensation, fading furniture, and high-energy bills. Insulation of the conservatory should address most of these issues.

A practical way to protect a glasshouse without covering up the lovely large windows is to insulate the roof. Here are some conservatory roof insulation options:

Insulated Panels

Insulated panels are a very effective long-term option for conservatory roof insulation. Homeowners can install them onto the existing framework of practically any kind of conservatory roof design and have a reflective coating underneath to maintain an airy and light feel of a conservatory.

Tiled Roofing

The tiled roofing option requires that a homeowner replace the conservatory roof with a roofing structure that can support roofing tiles. The result will be an aesthetically appealing option where the conservatory will look like an extension of the home. However, the framework of the glasshouse will need to be strong enough to support this kind of roofing.

Tinted Glass

Tinted glass is a cheaper option that reduces glare and therefore fading of the furniture and furnishings in the conservatory. It keeps the conservatory cool in summer without compromising the amount of light penetrating conservatory windows.


Some of these options are costly but more effective. Other options are cost-friendly but less effective, others offer effective insulation for summer weather, and others are more effective for winter weather. Therefore, the choice is really up to the preferences of a homeowner.
