Housemaster Home Improvements in Hertfordshire offer some of the most advanced roofing options for our full range of custom-made Glass Extensions.
We have access to a number of different solar control glazing options for Glass Extensions. The main solar control option we have is our unique Solaris glass range.
Our solar control properties work in two ways; in summer it reduces unwanted heat gain, yet in winter it reduces unwanted heat loss.
The way this works is down to the treatment that the glass undergoes. From the outside, firstly, the glass contains properties which reflect unwanted summer rays from entering your Glass Extension and causing it to over heat. On the inside the glass has been treated in such a way that reduces the amount of heat radiation and therefore heat loss. Our solar controlled glass roofs also absorbs heat as it tries to pass back through the glass and reflects it back into your room.
Polycarbonate is another option we offer for your Glass Extension roof. Its integral solar protection, preventing up to 80% of the sun's solar energy from entering the glass extension through the roof, helping to maintain a comfortable internal temperature.
Our polycarbonate roofs will reduce glare by up to 86%, increasing comfort levels in your Glass Extension. In winter, most of the heat lost escapes through the roof; with our polycarbonate roof, a large proportion of rising heat is radiated back into the room, helping to maintain comfortable temperatures and reducing heating costs.
