Glass roof – Solar coatings

If your conservatory is suffering from extreme heat during the summer months, you could find yourself paying out a fortune on air conditioning to keep you cool.

With glass windows the sun’s heat is magnified, acting as greenhouse. But there is something known as a solar coating which is painted onto glass surfaces and acts as protection to limit the amount of heat allowed inside.

What is a solar coating?

Solar coatings allow you to enjoy a conservatory during the hot months of the year without extreme heat levels. The coating is just a thin layer of material covering the external pane and limits the amount of heat that passes through. This can be applied to polycarbonate surfaces too.

Is a solar coating cheaper than conservatory blinds?

Research shows that a 10m2 conservatory roof space will cost in the region of £1,300 to £1,800 for conservatory blinds.

Solar coatings can be less than half of this amount, making the heat repellent a cost effective way to keep your home cooler. If you’re on a budget then solar coating is certainly the way to go and it’ll be even cheaper if you incorporate it into a new build.

There are a few types of solar coating to choose from, including CoolKote, Celsius, Wonderglass and Polycool. Each has its own benefits and will add a slightly different coloured tint to the existing glazing.
