Fully tested and approved to all thermal and structural standards, the Guardian™ roof is a high performance insulated roof system comprising of a pre-engineered lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internal insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood and a vapour membrane.
All together this creates a thermally efficient living space; keeping the warm air out in the summer and preventing the heat from escaping in the winter thus saving the amount of heat energy required to keep the room at an ambient temperature.
Since October 2010, it has been possible for anyone to put a solid roof onto a conservatory, however in August 2013 the LABC released a circular containing some basic rules that must be followed. This applies to any roof that, with any conversion is no longer made of a clear or translucent material.
The building as a whole must be structurally sound. Any alterations that affect the original structure must be carefully considered. The foundations must be checked to ensure their suitability for an increased loading. The conservatory window framework must be assessed also and the new roof structure must be proven structurally sound.
The new roof only must comply with part L of building regulations. This means the overall U value (thermal measurement) of the new roof must comply with current building regs (currently 0.18).
The guardian roof is the only lightweight tiled roof system that is fully approved by the London Authority of Building Control. As part of the installation process Country View will take care of all aspects of the building control process. For supply only orders, Country View can assist customers with becoming an LABC partner to enable use of the Guardian LABC building control portal.
