THE BENEFITS OF GUARDIAN ROOFS

Many people can’t enjoy their conservatory in summer because it’s just too hot and in winter, it’s far too cold, what a nightmare! By replacing the current roof with a thermally efficient, fully insulated Guardian™ Warm Roof, your conservatory will instantly become a comfortable, quiet and enjoyable living space that you can use every single day – whatever the weather or temperature.

We are your local Team Guardian™ experts and our installation team will transform your conservatory and turn it into a delightful home extension which you’ll be able to enjoy every season come rain or shine. Sit back and relax in the room you always wanted.

 

GUARDIAN ROOF BENEFITS

The lightweight, insulated Guardian™ roof system was designed and developed over a ten year period and with one purpose – to replace the typical glass or polycarbonate roof that was used in the construction of most UK conservatories.

The main focus was on the dynamics and performance, however the overall weight of the replacement roof, which needed to be installed onto the existing conservatory windows, doors and frames was always a big priority. During this period extensive tests were carried out both for compliance and approval to very vigorous structural and thermal standards. The result is not only a brilliant product but a very practical solution, one which has been the biggest home improvement.

BUILDING REGULATIONS

Only since October 2010, has it been officially possible to put a solid roof onto a conservatory or porch.

In August 2013 the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) released a circular containing some basic guidelines relating to Building Regulation Legislation which apply to the replacement of a translucent roof (made from glass or polycarbonate) onto a conservatory or porch with a solid roof.

The Guardian™ solid roof is a strong, lightweight tiled roof and is fully approved by the Local Authority Building Control.

THERMAL REGULATIONS

To comply with part L of the building regulations 2010, all roofs to rooms (except those in unheated buildings) should be thermally insulated to a maximum U-value of 0.18 W/m²K.

STRUCTURAL

The building as a whole must be structurally sound. Any alterations that affect the original structure must be carefully considered. The foundations must be checked to ensure their suitability for an increased loading. The conservatory window framework must be assessed also and the new roof structure must be proven to be structurally sound.

PLASTER FINISH

Because the ceiling of a conservatory is typically angled and high, the interior space that you enjoy is often light and airy. Whether you choose roof windows or not, our skilled plasters will finish your ceiling with a beautiful smooth texture ready for painting. Matt white seems to be the most popular colour.

TIMBER INTERIOR FINISH

Because we are removing your old roof and installing a completely new lightweight, insulated roof you’ll have a wide choice of interior finishes, one very popular choice is the timber. It’s amazing how the wooden ceiling completely changes the character of the room and creates a log cabin effect which you can then develop with your own choice of finishings, lighting and interior ornaments and art.

LED SPOTLIGHTS

Lighting can certainly effect the atmosphere and ambiance of a room, especially if you want your new conservatory to be a multi-use environment. So we recommend LED lighting and you can choose to have as many individual down-lights as you want, plus you can include dimmer switches or even have more than one switch to alter the number of lights that are actually on.

THE GUARDIAN™ ROOF

The lightweight, insulated Guardian™ roof system was designed and developed over a ten year period and with one purpose – to replace the typical glass or polycarbonate roof that was used in the construction of most UK conservatories.

The main focus was on the dynamics and performance, however the overall weight of the replacement roof, which needed to be installed onto the existing conservatory windows, doors and frames was always a big priority. During this period extensive tests were carried out both for compliance and approval to very vigorous structural and thermal standards. The result is not only a brilliant product but a very practical solution, one which has been the biggest home improvement.
