Edwardian

This is the traditional and classic style of a Guardian Warm Roof. It helps homeowners increase their available room space and stands out due to exceptional design, with great styling and contouring of the roof.

Victorian
The Victorian tiled conservatory roof is another fabulous, classic shape that adds distinction to any home. It provides more flexibility regarding door positions and being a three facet design offers an attractive alternative shape to the Edwardian.

Lean-To

The Guardian Lean-To forms a perfect extension to any kitchen and increases the space available at the back of a house. It can be positioned with one or two slopes and is capable of going as low as 15 Degrees with roof windows.

Porch

The Guardian Porch helps create additional space at the front of your home, as opposed to conservatory and replacement conservatory roofing. It’s extra security being another barrier and adds extra value to your property.

Tapco Slate
Made from recyclable plastic and Dolomite limestone, Tapco Slate provides the random texture and edges of natural slate. It’s lightweight, (12.35 kg per m2) and is strong, cost effective, recyclable and attractive and is available in many aesthetically pleasing colours and blends. Tapco slates have excellent weathering characteristics; they will not curl, lift or delaminate, and are impermeable to water.

There has been a revolution in home improvement when it comes to conservatory roof replacements.
At one time you could only choose between a polycarbonate or glass conservatory roof; but as a result of Guardian working closely with Building Control Offices from October 2010 you are now officially able to add a Guardian Tiled Roof to your conservatory – and you can do so with full LABC consent.

Building regulations

Most companies can only offer you an option of either a glass or polycarbonate roof for your conservatory. Here at Guardian™ we have invested a considerable amount of time and effort in communicating with Building Control Offices and in October 2010 it became officially possible that you could put a solid roof on your conservatory. There are some basic rules that you will need to comply with Guardian™ can provide all of the information and if necessary deal with building control officers.
Did you know that you can now replace a conservatory roof with a solid roof without having to apply for building regulations?
There were changes made to the building regulations on October 1st 2010 which allows anyone to put a solid roof on a conservatory as long as they meet the following criteria:

  • They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres in floor area.
  • The conservatory is separated from the house by external quality walls, doors or windows.
  • There should be an independent heating system with separate temperature and on/off controls.
  • Glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the applicable building regulations requirements.

If you go to section c25 it clearly states the following:
Where a conservatory or porch does not meet all of the above conditions it is not exempt and approved documents l1b & l2b give guidance on what would be reasonable in meeting the energy efficiency provisions from non-exempt conservatories and porches. Building control bodies will want to note that the definition of conservatory in terms of percentage translucent material as set out in previous editions of the approved documents no longer applies.

Features

  • Manufactured in pine, vacuum impregnated and coated with acrylic lacquer.
  • Handle positioned on the lower part of the sash for easy operation, and secured open in two positions.
  • Suitable for roofs with pitches between 15° and 90° (complete with flashing).
  • Wide range of accessories.

Description

FT centre pivot windows are the most popular type of roof window. The well-designed centre pivot allows the sash to be opened in a range of positions, thus increasing the amount of fresh air which can be drawn into the room. The sash can also be rotated through 180° and locked, allowing easy and safe cleaning of the outer pane to be carried out. Such pivot windows are operated using a two-part hinge.
As the air inlet is positioned at the top of the frame, our windows have a 6% greater surface area when compared with similar sized windows made by other manufacturers. As a result they maximise the amount of natural light in a room. Non-standard window specifications, such as windows with automatic air-vents, are available to order: FTP-V/H, FTP-V/P. Also available in conservation style.
