Guardian Warm Conservatory Roof
Traditional conservatories can uplift and enhance any home. Yet despite the extra light and space they provide, they can be subject to the elements, becoming too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
Now, with the Guardian roof system, you can transform your conservatory from an under-used space, into a cosy, welcoming extension to your home that provides the same levels of comfort all year-round.
No compromise on light
To maintain the bright, spacious ambience of a conventional conservatory, Guardian roofs can be fitted with a range of roof lights that will continue to flood your conservatory with natural light. That means you won’t have to sacrifice the bright and airy feel of your conservatory when you opt for the benefits of a solid tiled roof.
Rooms you can use whatever the weather
Without constant heating or cooling, traditional conservatories with glazed or polycarbonate roofs can rarely be used all year round. Our advanced, solid and fully insulated tiled roof system, instantly transforms an occasionally used conservatory into an uplifting every-day living space.
The easy way to revitalise tired conservatory roofs
The system has been specifically designed to allow an easy installation and to give you a no hassle, high-quality service. The system fits simply and easily onto your existing structure, making it the ideal replacement for ageing glass or polycarbonate roofs – or even as an alternative roof for brand new conservatories and traditional extensions.
Energy-saving design for year-round comfort
The roof has solid insulation panels integrated within the structure, achieving an incredibly low U-value of 0.18. Such superior energy efficiency means no more extremes of temperature inside the conservatory, making it a comfortable room for you in all weathers.
Attractive styling – inside and out
Roofs can be fitted with premium slate style tiles or standard steel tiles in a range of colours to complement your home. The internal surface of the roof can be finished with a modern plasterboard or tongue and groove timber ceiling, creating the look and feel of a conventional home extension.
Robust, home enhancing and energy-efficient
In addition to the value-enhancing benefits of a traditional conservatory, the Guardian system brings you:
The Guardian tiled roof system can be fitted with two types of hard-wearing roof tile:
- Premium composite roof slates
Manufactured from a recyclable blend of slate and polypropylene, Tapco tiles offer the authentic natural look of traditional slate roofs but with no risk of shattering, fading, warping or cracking.
- Standard steel tiles
Metro tiles are made from lightweight steel, available in a choice of colours to suit your customers’ preferences. The colours available are Charcoal, Moss Green, Antique Red, Burnt Umber and Ebony.

Under current editions of the Building Regulations, Building Control approval is not required for any alterations to structures under 30m2. Planning Permission and Building Control approval is required for any structure over 30m2.
Some unscrupulous suppliers may suggest that Building Control consent is not required for replacement conservatory solid roof projects. This is misleading. However, from experience, different authorities have different procedures for gaining consent, which in many cases are very simple and straight forward.
The Guardian Warm Roof is fully LABC approved. This means...
The Guardian Warm Roof Conversion System has been designed to provide a high performance thermal and structural solution with zero condensation risk over the life of the roof. Each of these elements has been fully tested and approved by independent industry experts to evaluate thermal performance, structural performance, condensation risk and quantify energy savings.
The Guardian roof best practice approach has enabled the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) to certify the Guardian Roof System as a LABC Registered System. The Guardian roof conversion is exempt if it is at ground level, does not exceed 30m 2 floor area, be thermally separated from the building it is attached to, have an independent controlled heating system and have glazing that meets Part N in the critical zones.
The Guardian Warm Roof Conversion System is fully compliant for use in a conventional situation such as an extension and has been fully approved by LABC for use as a full replacement conservatory roof.
