Replacement Conservatory Roof vs Conservatory Blinds

Typically, homeowners have two options for when re-designing the look and feel of their conservatory; install conservatory blinds or install a replacement tiled roof. In this blog post we want to help you make the right decision...

Blinds vs tiled conservatory roofs

Blinds have their own advantages and disadvantages

Blinds are great for providing shade from the sun during the summer months, but they do little to protect against the temperature and struggle to properly regulate heat. 

Solid roofs deliver on heating

Having a solid conservatory roof allows you to avoid fluctuating house/conservatory temperatures during the summer and winters seasons. If regulating room temperature is a priority, then a replacement solid roof wins against installing blinds. 

The appearance of blinds vs tiled roofs

With regards to the aesthetic qualities of blinds and tiled conservatory roofs; both offer an improvement on the aesthetic of an otherwise bland and blind-less conservatory with a polycarbonate/glass roof. However, the two have different aesthetic features; for instance, blinds offer more of a finishing touch, whereas a replacement roof offers an entire change to the structure of the room. 

In addition to this, there's plenty you can achieve with a replacement roof with ample designs and colours available. If you'd like to see some examples of a solid roof, head over to our gallery page - hopefully this will help you make your decision. 

The cost 

Our final point refers to the cost of. Whilst blinds are cheaper, tiled conservatory roofs pay for themselves in many ways. Firstly, they add value to your property if you ever choose to sell your home and secondly, they help you save money on your energy bills in the long-run.
