Synopsis: An article explaining how to chose the material for your new DIY Conservatory.

Pick your roof material.

Now that you have chosen your perfect style conservatory / orangery you need to decide what material you want your roof to be. Adding a conservatory or orangery will enhance your home in many ways, they give you that extra space and style and increase your kerb appeal, but it is important to make sure you choose the right roof material to make it just right.

Lets have a look at the options.....

Solid Roof: Solid roof's are becoming more and more popular, people are choosing these instead of going for the more expensive home extensions and others have started replacing their old traditional conservatory roof with a new solid version. They look great with Velux style windows added to give extra light and ventilation and come tiled in either black, terracotta or brown.

Glass Roof: A glass roof is the ultimate conservatory or orangery roof. They look great on a Capella style orangery and you can choose the specification of glass required. Glass roof's range from the standard double glazed to the Elite Activ Blue self cleaning models. All glass options have their own performance qualities and you should bear in mind how you want to use your conservatory to decide which is the best option for you. Take a look at the chart on our website to help you make that decision: https://www.diy2go.com/glass-roof-conservatories.html

Polycarbonate Roof: The polycarbonate is the traditional conservatory roof, giving that extra light at a fraction of the price. However, the performance of the polycarbonate can be on parr with that of the glass roof. Polycarbonate has come a long way in recent years and can now be supplied in 25mm or 35mm thickness and in a choice of colours.
