5 Reasons Why You Should Always Consider Insulated Roof Panels

If you want to experience the outdoors in complete comfort and style, you can’t go past insulated roof panels. Insulated panels are the most popular choice for patio roofing on the market, and for good reason!

Not only are they the ideal choice when it comes to weather resistance, insulated roof panels also expand the options available to you for design and decor.

Kicking off a patio project? Our team has put together a few reasons why you should always look into insulated roof panels.


Heat Reduction

One of the key reasons to go with insulated roof panels for your patio is that they reduce heat. Having an outdoor living space where you’re protected from the elements is great, having insulated roofing that capitalises on awesome weather (and compensates when it’s bad) is better.

In Australia, we’re well-known for our ‘scorchers’ during the summer months. Insulated roof panels are a great solution for days when you want to be outside but don’t want to feel the full force of the Aussie sun.

In the heat reduction department, single skin roofs cannot compete with insulated roof panels. Single skins are simply not engineered or equipped to reduce heat the same way insulated roofing does.


Less Noise During Rain

Due to the density of insulated roof panels, they drastically reduce noise created by rain and other outside elements.

Patios, especially enclosed ones, are wonderful spots to relax and unwind. If you’re the kind of person that likes to curl up with a good book during stormy weather, or enjoys finding a quiet place to watch the rain, insulating your patio roof is the way to go.

On the other hand, you might also use your patio to host outdoor gatherings. Insulated roof panels are a great way to ensure you and your guests are comfortable, whatever the weather. A reduction in outside noise (like rain) means it’ll also be easier to hear each other!


Downlights can be Added

One of the biggest advantages of installing insulated roof panels in your patio is being able to add downlights. This adds significantly to the overall decor of your space and also makes your outdoor living area a beautiful place to spend time of an evening.

Installing downlights means that you control the amount of light in your space, ensuring you can enjoy your patio at all times of the day. Consider adding a dimmer switch for maximum control of your comfort.

The design of insulated roof panels supports the installation (and concealment) of the wiring necessary to install downlights. You can even add heating and cooling features, like ceiling fans! This is something that is almost impossible to achieve with a single skin patio roof, due to the reduced complexity of their design.


Creates an Alfresco Area

Insulated roof panels increase overall comfort in your outdoor living space and create the opportunity for an alfresco area. This gives you an alternative space to have meals or host events and really make the most of your patio all year round!

Having a comfortable alfresco area is great for entertaining. Consider popping your barbeque in or near your patio and look into outdoor furniture that suits your set up and style.


Cuts Down Condensation

If you’ve ever spent time outdoors under a single skin roof, you’ll know what we mean when we say that cutting down condensation is important.

Single skin roofs are prone to creating condensation in their ceilings, often leading to dripping, or worse, mould. There are remedies for this in the market, but they involve constant maintenance and can be expensive to manage in the long-run.

Insulated roof panels are resistant to this condensation and are, therefore, a great investment. Insulated roofing technology controls condensation, meaning that you don’t have to!

Whether your patio is a place for entertaining guests, a cosy escape or a combination of the two, insulated roof panels will ensure maximum comfort and style in your outdoor living area.

Insulated roof panels are the ultimate option when it comes to design as well as function, making them an ideal choice for your patio.
