What are the benefits of a Supalite Conservatory Roof?
Supalite roofs are aesthetically appealing but, of course, there’s more to a conservatory roof than just its looks. We’ve identified the following Supalite conservatory roof features as the most significant benefits to homeowners thinking about making a change.
Each Supalite roof comes with a 20-year guarantee. Homeowners benefit from the additional advantage that Supalite conservatory roofs come with an extended life expectancy of 50 years.
Excellent U-Value rating
U-value is a measure used in the glazing and conservatory industries which measures the amount of heat in building material. If a conservatory roof has a low U-value score, this means that it has a better capacity to able to insulate the rest of your room. Supalite roofs come with an impressive U-value of 0.18 (0.15 for Scotland) so that your conservatory maintains a comfortable, consistent, and enjoyable indoor climate.
Traditional window panel roofs have a much higher U-value and this explains why they tend to trap any hot or cold temperature inside your conservatory for what often feels like a very long time.
Very noise absorbent
Many conservatory owners do not enjoy the experience of sitting in their conservatory when it’s raining or hailing heavily because of the loud noise those types of weather create. It may be, as well, that your current conservatory roof is starting to show the signs of age and it’s starting to let sounds in – perhaps you can hear the kids playing next door on a sunny day when all you really want is a bit of peace.
Supalite roofs are very noise absorbent and that means that the noises which currently distract or annoy you are no longer heard anymore when you’re enjoying the space and tranquillity of your conservatory.
Choice of slate and tile colours
You can customise your Supalite conservatory roof’s colour to match your home’s outside colours and hues. Many homeowners believe that having two different types of roof tiles and colours on the same property is unsightly. You can choose from Supalite’s attractive selection of four roof colours to closely or exactly match your existing roof colour.
ExtraLight tiles (not available for the Monoroof)
ExtraLight tiles are a new, unique type of textured roof tiles for Supalite conservatory roofs. These tiles are seven times lighter than traditional roofing materials and that makes them suitable for every type of window panel conservatory.

So much so that Supalite give each customer a 40-year weatherproof protection guarantee.
