The conservatory roof is a wonderful addition to any home. It offers an extra room for entertaining, and it provides the perfect place for plants or flowers to grow.
However, because of its location on your property, you may feel like there are some drawbacks when it comes to heating and cooling this space during the cold winter months. You can eliminate these problems by insulating your conservatory roof correctly!
Remove Existing Insulation
You will need to remove any existing insulation from the roof before you start. This is because if it isn’t removed, then the new insulation layers may not fit correctly or they may be too heavy for your roof to handle. It’s best just to get rid of anything that’s there and create a clean surface to work on.
Choose the Correct Insulation
Normal roofing insulation will not be suitable for a conservatory roof. You will need to use a special material that is designed for this type of space. This is because the insulation needs to be able to reflect heat and keep it trapped inside the roof, which isn’t something that normal materials do well.
A common material used is a reflective sheet to create a layer of insulation that reflects heat and keeps it inside.
Measure the Space
Before you start any work, make sure you have measured your conservatory roof to see how much space there is available for insulation layers. This will help with the planning and efficiency of the project and also what thickness each layer needs to be in order to cover all of the surface area.
Correctly Apply The Insulation Correctly
When installing the insulation for your conservatory roof, you will need to remember that the insulation must be able to evenly spread out. Make sure there are no gaps and that the insulation is not wrinkled.
This will ensure that your conservatory roof can be kept warm during the colder months of the year and also prevents heat from being lost through cracks in your conservatory roof or other places where air could leak into it.
