Provide Guardian Warm Roof

Conservatories installed years ago were not designed with temperature control in mind. Guardian’s patented tiling system achieves a superior U-value of 0.18 W/m.K, meaning they’re the most efficient at keeping cold air out and warm air in.
The Guardian Roof is a high-performance insulated roof system comprising of a pre-engineered lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internally insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood, vapour membrane and a choice of tile finishes.
In just a few days, your existing conservatory roof can be smoothly transformed into a superior solid tiled conservatory roof without the need for any alterations to your existing structure, fixtures or fittings.
As Guardian tiling is specially designed to be lightweight, most existing roof frames should support it. We’ll be happy to provide you with a free assessment before any work is agreed.
The complete change-over process to a Guardian Roof takes three to five days meaning there will be minimal disruption to your household. Read all answers to commonly asked questions about Guardian roofs now.

Building regulations vary from one local authority to another hence why we use an independent company however if you would like to use your local authority we would require more time.

Our normal turnaround times is 6 weeks. With this said, we will try and accommodate a time-frame which works with you. If you want set a particular date past the 6 week period, i.e. 9 weeks in the future. This is fine If you would like a tiled conservatory roof installed in a weeks time, unfortunately we would most likely not be able to accommodate a warm roof installation in such a short time-frame. We would be very weary of any company who say they can install a LABC approved tiled roof in a short time, as it’s likely they haven’t followed the trading standards protocol or worse, UK law. But we will all ways work with you to try and accommodate a time frame that works with yourself.

We (CSM North East) install Guardian warm roofs as they’re the largest warm roof system provider on the market. They’re the original warm roof system and Guardian is the only LABC approved system (which means they have met building compliance and quality regulations).
Guardian roofs do not need batons put on top off the roof before tiling due to the roof has a fully vented ring beam and has not had the same issues as some off the newcomers to the tiled conservatory roof market. With the tiles being fixed direct to the felt and ply, this means the roof can be accessed without damaging any of the conservatory roof tiles.
Installation figures across the UK suggest Guardian is the most popular tiled roof system. Guardian installers have installed more warm roof conversions then all the other systems combined.
We would be unprofessional calling another system inferior and would suggest that everyone performs their own research before deciding.
