How do you reduce the noise made by rain in your conservatory?

It’s so frustrating isn’t it? It’s raining and grey outside, so you’ve snuggled up in your conservatory. But the sound of rain on the roof is so loud, you can’t hear the TV, you can’t hear your family speak and at times, it feels like you can’t even hear yourself think.

A conservatory is a great addition to your home, giving you much needed extra space, so what can you do to help reduce the annoying sound of rain?

Replacing your conservatory roof

If the idea of replacing your conservatory roof feels like a big deal with a lot of work and a hefty price tag, let’s start by putting your mind at rest. Because it really isn’t. Most roof replacements take no more than two days and there is minimum mess and disruption to your home. You can shut the rest of your house off so that these days of COVID 19, you don’t have to have any contact with the roof installer and whilst we can’t vouch for all the installers out there, what we can say is that our installers are polite and never leave a mess behind them.

In fact, the whole process from getting a quote to completion is designed to be quick, easy and hassle free. And you’ll find our conservatory roofs are really competitively priced and much more affordable than moving to a new house, rebuilding your conservatory from scratch or having a home extension.

How do our conservatory roofs reduce rain noise?

Our replacement roof can significantly reduce rain noise because they are fitted with insulation panels. These are not only much more thermally efficient than a glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof, they instantly help reduce noise from outside and improve protection from other harsh weather conditions. The insulation panels are also waterproof and fire resistant. Our replacement roofs are super-lightweight glass fibre reinforced plastic and can be installed on to most old conservatory frames.  And they look great!

A tiled finish

Lightweight, imitation tiles are used to finish the roof. They come in a choice of colours, are very durable and again, help reduce noise as well as providing a smart finish.

A conservatory ceiling

An insulated conservatory ceiling will also reduce rain noise as well as reducing your heating bills and eliminating mould, condensation, drafts, sun glare and furniture fade.  With a choice of stylish finishes and the option to have a skylight it makes this a really appealing option.

The end result?

 

In no time at all, your noisy, drafty or leaky conservatory can be transformed in to a warm, dry and snug place where you can curl up with a book, get on with some work or just relax in the peace and quiet, undisturbed by whatever the weather outside is throwing at you!

Give us a call to find out more. And say goodbye to noise.

How big is your footprint?

How big is your footprint?

What most people don’t realise is that the biggest source of the carbon footprint you leave, is your home and household emissions. According to Nesta, “domestic energy use accounts for more than 21 % of UK greenhouse gas emissions each year.” The Office for National Statistics claim that households have been the single biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the UK since 2015 and account for almost 28% of the UK’s total emissions.

Is the rain getting you down?

Yup, it’s getting a bit boring now. After all, with summer travel still difficult and all the challenges of the last 18 months, we do all really need some warm sunny weather and some long balmy days spent in the garden.

Check your seals

As the sun finally comes out after weeks of rain, there’s been a collective sigh of relief across the UK. Summer is here at last and if we can’t go on holiday, we can at least enjoy some long sunny days. But that said, if you’re a traditional conservatory owner, things might look a little different.

Stay or sell?

There is no doubt that Covid 19 has changed many lives for good. In the space of 12 months working from home has become the norm with Zoom and online conferencing becoming second nature, and many large employers taking the decision to permanently downsize office space. Although the country is gradually re-opening, it is unlikely that working practices and lives will ever completely return to how things were before March 2020.
