Retrofitted Roof Ventilation
Ventilation is one of the most important factors in improving the likely maximum temperature in your conservatory or glazed roof space. Roof ventilation is often removed from the equation when purchasing a living space with a glazed roof as there is a misconception that tinted or active glass will reduce heat gain significantly. At Shadeplus we speak to hundreds of people every month who have tinted or active glass and still have an excessive heat issue during extended sunny periods.
