The Two Images That Show Why You Should Change Your Conservatory Roof

On this site there are thousands of words that detail the technical benefits of the Guardian Warm Roof.

There are pages on how the roofs have full regulatory approval, how they make conservatories usable all year round, how they are a superb option for anyone looking to replace their glass or polycarbonate roof with a lightweight, solid tiled roof.

However, rather than summing up those words here, we wanted to do something different. We wanted to show you two images that truly sum up the difference a Guardian Warm Roof makes to your conservatory.

Without further ado, here are those two images.

An inefficient conservatory roof

The first image is a thermographic shot of a conventional conservatory roof. As you can see, the roof offers no barrier against the prevailing conditions, heat is neither retained in winter or kept out in the summer.

This image gets to the heart of the core problem with most conservatories, they are too hot in the summer and too cold in winter. In summer, they are often a virtual sauna while in colder months they can only be used with the heating no near 24/7.

The second image shows the difference switching to a Guardian Warm Roof makes.

An efficient conservatory roof

This image, again using thermographic technology, shows that the issues have been rectified, the new lightweight tiled roof ensures that in summer, the hot air is kept out, keeping the room at a pleasant temperature, while in winter heat is kept in.

These images show why the Guardian Warm Roof has full regulatory backing, this including Local Area Building Control (LABC) approval. The images highlight why it was the Guardian Roof that led to regulatory change – prior to 2010, conservatories could only have glass or polycarbonate roofs; our work saw that changed.

What the image cannot show you is that the change also brings financial benefits. Each and every year there will be energy bill savings, these because the heating does not need to be on permanently in winter. Independent research by AECOM found these savings to  come to £200 per annum on a typical property.

Perhaps better still, the work in upgrading to a thermo-efficient roof often tends to pay for itself, and potentially more besides. Any would-be buyer is now getting a room that is effectively a superb extension rather than a flawed space, this is an upgrade they are willing to pay for.

The roofs also look superb, coming in a range of styles that ensure the new conservatory roof will blend in with the rest of the property.

Conservatories with glass or polycarbonate roofs are flawed, they were sold as a room that would be superb during the summer, they turn out to be quite the opposite.

An approved Guardian Warm Roof transforms the conservatory into what it always should have been, great, usable space that can be used to relax in, or as a home office, family room, home gym or for any other purpose.
