The Guardian Warm Roof Conversion System has been designed to provide a high performance thermal and structural solution with zero condensation risk over the life of the roof.
Each of these elements has been fully tested and approved by independent industry experts to evaluate thermal performance, structural performance, condensation risk and quantify energy savings.
The Guardian roof best practice approach has enabled the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) to certify the Guardian Roof System as a LABC Registered System. In some cases the Guardian roof conversion would be exempt if it was at ground level, does not exceed 30m2 floor area, be thermally separated from the building it is attached to, have an independent heating system from the main building and have glazing that meets Part N in the critical zones.
However, Building Control approval should always be sought. But, with Guardian systems being LABC certified, this process should proceed without complication. The Guardian Warm Roof Conversion System has been fully approved by LABC for use as a full replacement conservatory roof.
With Building Control approval, Guardian high performance insulated roof conversions may allow the removal of the wall between the house and the conservatory, offering the flexibility to extend and enlarge an existing kitchen, living room or bedroom.

What is FENSA? – FENSA stands for Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme. It is an administration and inspection scheme, the outcome of discussions between the Government, the Glass and Glazing Federation and Industry.
FENSA registered companies are permitted to self certify their own work. However random inspections are carried out during and after installation. Inspectors are checking for : Escape – In case of Fire Use of Safety Toughened Glass Ventilation Structure, and Access and facilities for disabled people. Any installation done by a firm which is not registered to self-certify, or done as a DIY project by a householder, will need full local authority approval under the Building Regulations.
