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.
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.
We offer plasterboard and timber cladding optios to finish off your roof conversion
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?.
Guardian roof installations are normally completed within 3 days including following on with plasterboarding and skimming. The roof is normally wartertight within a day.
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
