How long will my conservatory last?

If you're considering a conservatory for your home this year, you probably have a few questions. The big one being- how long will my conservatory actually last? This obviously depends on several factors, the largest factor being which type of roof you decide to go for. We install our Smart Roofs across Northampton. 

Conservatory Roofs

Choosing the roof that will last the longest means it may not always be the cheapest option but, as with everything, you get what you pay for- and the higher grade of materials used, the longer it will last. 

For a cheaper, less durable option- there's polycarbonate. A slight step up from this is glass, which costs slightly more but will last longer and be more resistant to wear over the years.

However, for the best value for money, the best option is a Warm Roof. This is a tiled roof that comes with endless benefits for your conservatory. It regulates the temperature, so you can use it all year round, reduces the need for so much heating in the winter months, and helps your conservatory look more pleasing, as the tiles can match your home roof tiles. Having a tiled roof has no drawbacks- it doesn't even restrict the amount of daylight in your conservatory, as the walls will still be glass/polycarbonate, and skylights can easily be fitted.

Conservatory Frames

Conservatory frames tend to come in wood, aluminium or PVC, which can all last for a long time if looked after properly. PVC is the hardest wearing option and can give your conservatory the longest life span, especially when teamed with a Smart Roof.

Conservatory Doors

The best option for conservatory doors is PVC, as this offers structural strength, as well as looking more pleasing than other materials. Not only this, but they are compatible with several reliable locking systems, to keep your conservator safe and secure.
