Self-cleaning glass roofs are a great choice if you are looking for a roof that is low maintenance. It removes the trouble of cleaning or paying someone to clean the roof regularly, and saves you time and money in the long run.
If one of your main concerns is the regulation of heat in your conservatory, you can opt for thermally efficient glass. This will help to keep the heat in during the winter and keep the room cool during the summer. The glass panels are double glazed, and you can have layering to stop excessive sun rays from entering the room, as this might be an annoyance if you are working or reading in the conservatory.
If you plan to use your conservatory to complete tasks or enjoy leisure time, tinted glass would be a great choice for you. For example, if you plan to read, work, watch TV or use your computer in the conservatory, then the sunlight might affect this. However, tinted glass reduces the harshness of the sun, leaving you with subtle light. You can add layering to other types of glass to get this effect.
Toughened glass is an affordable, durable and visually pleasing option. It requires more maintenance than the other options, however, it is still easier to maintain than tiling.
