Key Advantages of McIntyres of Scotland Solid & Insulated Conservatory Ceilings.

Why Solid Roof Conservatories so Effective?
Another comparative advantage of solid roof conservatories is their sound reduction qualities. Whereas plastic and glass roofs generally allow a lot of noise to enter the room, solid roofs are much more effective at blocking it, resulting in a more peaceful environment.
The relative downside of solid roofs compared to glass or plastic is that they restrict light access to your conservatory. So if you’re looking for maximum brightness, this may not be the best option.
However, sunlight does not only enter a conservatory through the roof, so a solid roof doesn’t necessarily equal a dark conservatory. Windows and doors can still permit substantial amounts of light to enter, so a solid roof conservatory is still a viable option for a bright sun room.
Solid roof conservatories come in all shapes and sizes. You can choose from a variety of different styles, and customise the design to suit your needs. The only difference between this and other conservatories is the roof material.
Another great advantage of solid roofs is that they come in a variety of colours and designs. You can pick your favourite tile or slate design from a number of options, and customise it with the colour of your choice.
Similarly, solid roof conservatories may be either large or small. Depending on how much space you have available, and how much extra living space you want to create, you’ll be able to find a solid roof conservatory to suit your space requirements.

Solid roof conservatories are typically more expensive than their glass or plastic counterparts. However, they are also likely to further increase the value of your property, making them a more valuable long term investment.
