Why get a Conservatory?
A Conservatory is able to provide you and your family with a bright, airy and relaxing living space. Conservatories allow for great social events and bring the outside in. During the summer periods, there is nothing better than stepping inside a conservatory on a warm summers day and letting the day pass by as they are able to unite your home and garden together. From a practical viewpoint, conservatories are extremely attractive to potential homeowners; when estate agents view properties with conservatories they will also improve the resale value of your property. The main point and reason we like conservatories is the amount of practical living space it gives you allowing you to spend quality time with family members and loved ones.
Do you need planning permission?
The good news is that with conservatories there is very rarely a need for planning permission; the rare occasion that this happens is usually when you live within a listed building or area of conservation. It is important to note that any conservatories that are not separated from your house with a door or form of passage will need to be checked by your local authority.
What is the Guardian Warm Roof?
The style of conservatory we use here at Guardian Roofs is the Guardian Warm Roof – This is a lightweight tiled alternative to Glass and Polycarbonate conservatory roofs and allows you to use your conservatory throughout the year no matter what the temperature is. You can check out our informative video of the whole process by checking the video below.

Lean To Tiled Conservatory Roof
This type of conservatory is perfect for those who have a bit of limited space at the back of their garden but want to ensure that the outdoor space is used to its full potential. In this case, the end of the conservatory can either have one or two slopes (hips) which makes this type of conservatory a great addition to your kitchen and successfully brings the outside in and connects the two areas of your home!

Edwardian Tiled Conservatory Roof
Edwardian styled conservatories are considered the ‘classic’ shape of the conservatory. These conservatories come together in an extremely pleasing aesthetical manner with attractive windows and the dominant traditionally styled Guardian Warm Roof. An Edwardian conservatory fits in with a variety of housing styles blending in seamlessly with its surroundings and maximising the space used for your conservatory. We really like the attractive yet classic design and think it is a great idea for you and your familiys’ conservatory.

Victorian Tiled Conservatory Roof
The Victorian Conservatory Roof is perfect for those who want to utilise a 3-facet roof design but may not necessarily have the most amount of space to use. This roof is great at using the space provided and ensures that every inch is used to its full potential. It comes in a contemporary style and allows for a variety of different door positions. Internally, the roof has a very attractive ceiling due to the faceted front finish. You can check out a variety of our most recent Victoria Conservatory Pictures by heading to the link provided
Gable Front Tiled Conservatory Roof
The Gable Front Tiled conservatory is perfect for those who are looking for continuous height within the conservatory allowing for an extremely striking and beautiful appearance both on the inside and outside of the conservatory. The added height allows for vast amounts of light to seep into the conservatory whilst still remaining cool due to the solid roof. This provides a gorgeous light and airy space for you and your family to enjoy throughout the year! You can browse our latest Gable Front Conservatories by heading on over to the link provided.
Special Shaped Tiled Conservatory Roofs
Special Shaped Conservatories are perfect and allow you to have two different living spaces and styles combined into one conservatory. A typical combination allows for a P shaped or T shaped conservatory to be constructed which allows you more customisability of your conservatory and adds to the already impressive space that is created. This style of specially shaped conservatory is perfect for those who live in Bungalows and smaller one to two-story properties. You can check out the latest Special Shaped Conservatories we have installed by heading on over to the link provided.
In addition to the conservatories outlined above, we are also able to create bespoke designs for our customers helping to create your dream conservatory and make it a reality. It is important to note that for this style of conservatory it would be important and imperative that a member of the Guardian Roofs team meets you and goes through the design so that we can then provide an accurate quote to confirm exactly how your new Guardian Roofed conservatory will look and how much this will cost!

Roof Tile Styles
Something that is extremely unique and great about the Guardian conservatories that are available out there is the different roof finishes. Some of the main types that we like to use are the Guardian Roof Slates. These slates come in a variety of different finishes to suit any environment ranging in different colours like grey, mulberry, black, brown and also a terracotta finish. This adds an extra level of customisation to your conservatory and presents a variety of potential design ideas.
In addition to slate being used, we also use a variety of Metrotile Roof Tiles for customers that are looking for a no maintenance, easy installation and extremely attractive tiling system. The metrotile is great for conservatories as it is made from lightweight high-grade steel which has Aluzinc in it. This is used for the incredible strength and allows metrotile to offer a 40 Year Weather Proof Guarantee.

Things to watch out for?
There are a variety of companies out there that we are aware of who try to imitate the Guardian Warm Roof and customers we have spoken to have had some extremely bad results with this. The roof is called a Wrap Over and merely places the solid conservatory roof on top of a pre-existing glass or polycarbonate roof which is not designed to support the weight of the excess roof and any rain, snow or debris that could build up. Customers are sometimes enticed by the lower price but we have seen in some cases the complete collapsion of entire conservatories (see below image). In addition to this we have seen some conservatories with blocked ventilation meaning that moisture cannot easily escape the conservatory and results in water becoming stuck and in some cases dripping from the ceiling!
