I CURRENTLY HAVE A GLASS ROOF CONSERVATORY AND AM INTERESTED IN CHANGING TO SOLID ROOF LIKE YOURS. WOULD I NEED TO OBTAIN PLANNING PERMISSION TO DO THIS?

Planning is not needed to change your conservatory roof but building control approval is recommended. The Guardian Warm Roof has full LABC approval and this will help with speeding up the process. Guardian also has a special rate with local authorities. Your local installer knows exactly how to deal with this and will take care of the paperwork.

HOW LONG WILL SIP EXTENSIONS LAST?

In the USA SIP and Timber constructed buildings have been used for many years and in Scandinavia for over a hundred with no adverse effects seen. As long as your SIp extension is dry and airtight there is no reason it won’t last the time a brick house does.

WHY SHOULD WE INVEST IN A GUARDIAN ROOF?

Many reasons: The Guardian Warm Roof was the first fully insulated, lightweight Solid Roof system on the market and is not just the market leader, it’s also the most popular warm roof in the UK. A Guardian Roof will extend your living space and increase the value of your home. Replacing your old Conservatory Roof with a Guardian Warm Roof System will give you the living space you presumed you were getting when you originally had your conservatory installed. The Guardian Roof carries full LABC Approval and delivers a quite incredible U Value of 0.18.

WHAT GUARANTEES DO HOMEOWNERS GET WITH A GUARDIAN WARM ROOF?

Guardian has guarantees on the materials they supply to their network of 23 fabricators (the manufacturers). The UK fabricators actually build each tailor-made roof in their workshop before supplying it to the local installers (Team Guardian members). The external products such as insulation, timber etc will typically have their own individual guarantees. All Team Guardian members will offer a comprehensive written guarantee on their workmanship including the installation.

HOW BIG CAN SIP EXTENSIONS BE?

A SIP extension can be as big or as small as you like. New build properties are now being constructed using prefabricated Structural Insulated Panel Systems.

u

WILL A SIP EXTENSION JUST LOOK LIKE A CONSERVATORY?

SIP extensions can be made to look like a conservatory or a traditionally built extension, it all depends on your design and external and internal finishes. There aren’t any limitations when it comes to external finishes for a SIP extension, you can use timber cladding, composite cladding, metal cladding, render, stonework or brickwork slips all to match your existing home or to really make your new extension stand out. The external finish is purely cosmetic and you can have the same range of choices for your roof; slate, concrete tiles, metal cladding, or even timber shingles.
