Just a quick note to say the conservatory was of excellent quality and the installation went perfect with the help of the installation guide which was very easy to understand. Myself and the wife are very pleased with it, so would just like to thank you for your excellent service......

Scottish Guardian Solid Tiled Effect Conservatory Roofs - The Best Complete Roof Replacement Option

Scottish Specification Guardian roofs

Scottish building warrant compliance has meant that our Scottish Guardian roof specification is a vented dry roof construction with sarking boards. It is important to check with your local authority, as adding this type of roof construction in Scotland is considered to be changing a conservatory to an extension, so it will at present normally require a building warrant.

How to save a lot of money

The Guardian tiled effect roof system is designed to be a similar weight to a conservatory glass roof of the same size. It therefore follows that if the frames are constructed correctly with steel reinforcement that the conservatory should support a Guardian roof without deeper foundations and extra support required. Guardian roofs are therefore much cheaper and much more convenient compared to converting the conservatory with conventional tiled roof constructions , or starting again with a complete re-build.

The benefits of Guardian roofs are also multiple compared to lower performance conservatory roof replacement options such as: Low E glass roofs ; Adapting the existing conservatory roof with insulation and plasterboard; and less establised roof systems that are not fully tested or compliant with building regulations.

High performance

An accepted warm roof construction with a tested low U value of 0.16u - A much better performance than alternative systems such as adapting your existing conservatory roof which frequently have reached the end of their lifespan, and which will fail leading to much more cost in the long run.

Lightweight complete roof replacement

Guardian has a light weight thick section aluminium frame and ventilated solid 3 layer insulation construction with cross ventilation - perfected to be compliant with the building warrant loading and insulation requirements. This means there is normally no problem with loadings on your existing foundations and conservatory frames. Alternative cheaper systems being actively promoted at present based on adapting existing conservatory roofs with insulation and plasterboard are in our view overloading roofs not constructed for this purpose - this will lead to problems in the future in our view - such as sagging and leaking.

Substantial energy cost savings

A U value of 0.16 is difficult to grasp unless you compare it with alternatives such as the best new low emission glass roof at 0.9U which customers often consider as a conservatory roof upgrade - the Guardian roof is an improvement even on this upgrade of more than 600% when the roof frame is taken into account . Guardian is also still a substantial improvement on other systems using insulation and plasterboard without replacing the existing roof.

Excellent noise reduction

Guardian substantially reduces wind and rain noise achieved with the various layers of solid insulation - rain noise in particular is common complaint with conservatory roofs that makes the room unusable for tv use or extra space for a home office etc.

Long guarantees

20 years guarantee for the roof and 20 years for the Metro Tiles. These guarantees are based on a solid tiled complete roof replacement system - made to last and constructed from materials recognised for their longevity and performance - why take chances and waste money on less substantial options?.

Quick installation

Guardian roof installations are normally completed within 3 days including following on with plasterboarding and skimming. The roof is normally wartertight within a day.

LABC registered

This registration and approval makes applications for building regulations in the UK and Scottish building warrant applications straight forward and quick compared to other unregistered and untested options.

An all year round room

Confortable ambient temperatures all year round within the conservatory are achieved because the layers of insulation and materials prevent heat penetration and glare in the summer as well as keeping much more heat in when it is cold outside.

Fakro Roof Vents

Using specially selected high quality pinewood and using the latest technology in timber lamination techniques, FAKRO roof windows are extremely stable.

To complement this technology all timber components are double vacuum preservative treated and given a 3 coat matt lacquer finish, which requires no further decoration. Externally the timber components are covered with aluminium sections which are covered with a uv and weather resistant coating. All window elements can be painted in any RAL colour according to customer wishes.
