Technical Information & Building Control for Solid Conservatory Roofs

Guardian warm roofs are all tested and approved to the structural standards. The roof is a high performance insulated roof comprising of a lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internal insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood, vapour membrane and a choice of external finishes. The roofs are thermally, structurally and condensation tested.

Please be aware that Guardian Warm Roof are the only one with (LABC) certification and using other similar products without it may cause problems in the future as without this it means they do not have an approved system, your local authority can instruct you to take it down. This is because after installation they cannot see inside the roof or tell what materials it is made from. It may even make your home insurance void and could cost more money trying to get it approved.

The Guardian Warm Roof System is the only solid roof system that has LABC & LABSS approval for your peace of mind.

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 local authority building control (LABC) to certify the Guardian Roof System as a LABC Registered System.

In some cases the Guardian roof conversion would be exempt if it was at ground level, does not exceed 30m2 floor area, be thermally separated from the building it’s attached to, have an independent heating system from the main building and have glazing that meets part N in the critical zones.

However, Building control approval should always be sought. But with Guardian Systems being LABC certified, this process should proceed without complication.

The Guardian Warm Roof System if fully compliant for use in conventional situation such as an extension and has been fully approved by LABC for use as a full replacement conservatory roof. With building control approval, Guardian high performance insulated conservatory roof conversions may allow the removal of the wall between the house and the conservatory, offering the flexibility to extend and enlarge an existing kitchen, living room or bedroom.
