Guardian roofs from Billingham Windows in Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees, don’t just improve the appearance of your home, but they also provide extra insulation for the harsher seasons. See below for our list of various benefits of having a guardian roof.
Once you’ve had your Guardian™ roof, you’ll be able to turn your conservatory into whatever you want, a family dining room or kitchen extension, a playroom, library, home study or office, games room, TV lounge, it could even be a ground floor bedroom. The insulated solid roof will make a huge difference to the acoustics and the general atmosphere of your conservatory. All of a sudden it’s a full-time living area instead of being a part-time compromise.
By removing your old conservatory and replacing it with a tiled roof you’ll completely change the appearance of the rear of your home and garden. Now, your conservatory will look just like a proper extension and by choosing tiles that match your house and then possibly adding one or more roof windows you’ll be getting all the benefits of a ground floor extension along with the convenience and style of a conservatory. It’s the perfect solution and it’s both affordable and impressive at the same time.
The Lean-to is ideal to maximise space at the rear of the house. The roof ends can have either one or two hips (slopes) and it is an ideal solution for a kitchen extension. The Guardian™ Warm Roof comes with an array of complementary tiles.
The combination or P-shape Conservatory can allow you to have two different style living spaces under one Guardian™ solid roof. These spaces are extremely adaptable to create a unique, multi-purpose room to your exact specification.
This classic conservatory shape helps to maximise the living space and is the traditional extension style for image and convenience. The Guardian™ insulated roof will simply enhance this new living space, which you can now use daily, all year round.
If your conservatory was designed and built to a very specific layout that can’t be categorised by one of the typical formats, we may need to visit you in order to give you an accurate quote and to confirm exactly how your solid roof will look. This is quite normal, in fact we have replaced roofs on very small porches as well as huge dining rooms and lounges in hotels and restaurants.

Versatile and Attractive
Because we are removing your old roof and installing a completely new lightweight, insulated roof you’ll have a wide choice of interior finishes, one very popular choice is the timber. It’s amazing how the wooden ceiling completely changes the character of the room and creates a log cabin effect which you can then develop with your own choice of finishings, lighting and interior ornaments and art.
Lighting can certainly affect the atmosphere and ambiance of a room, especially if you want your new conservatory to be a multi-use environment. So, we recommend LED lighting and you can choose to have as many individual down-lights as you want, plus you can include dimmer switches or even have more than one switch to alter the number of lights that are actually on.
Only since October 2010, has it been officially possible to put a solid roof onto a conservatory or porch.
In August 2013 the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) released a circular containing some basic guidelines relating to Building Regulation Legislation which apply to the replacement of a translucent roof (made from glass or polycarbonate) onto a conservatory or porch with a solid roof.
The Guardian™ solid roof is a strong, lightweight tiled roof and is fully approved by the Local Authority Building Control.
To comply with part L of the building regulations 2010, all roofs to rooms (except those in unheated buildings) should be thermally insulated to a maximum U-value of 0.18 W/m²K.
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 to be structurally sound.
