The average price of a conservatory in the UK starts at around £5000 for a smaller conservatory extension – so it’s hardly a surprise that it’s very frustrating when you cannot use your conservatory at all times of the year. ‘Traditional’ conservatories utilised cheaper materials in the past to reduce installation costs – such as polycarbonate for conservatory roofs. The Guardian Warm Roof System is still highly competitive in price and solves all of the issues that are caused by older conservatory roof materials.

Historic Conservatory Roofs
Whether you have undertaken the installation process of an older conservatory yourself or you have purchased a property that already featured a conservatory – your conservatory may have a number of issues. The obvious issues are that your conservatory is not insulated correctly and therefore cannot be used as a living space or comfortable to sit in at certain times of the year. There are also key issues that if you identify – you will know that your conservatory is not built for purpose and that you need to arrange for a conservatory roof replacement.
- Conservatories that leak in extreme weather are key indicators that their roofs are not up to standard or have become compromised. This means that you will need to arrange for a conservatory roof replacement.
- Mould or condensation in your conservatory is another indication that your conservatory roof is likely made with polycarbonate or other materials and therefore requires a conservatory roof replacement.
Why Were Conservatories Not Built to Last?
One of the main reasons that older conservatories were not built to last or are too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter is that the technology just didn’t exist to increase thermal efficiency. Older conservatories could have been installed decades ago – therefore thermal efficiency for materials was not as advanced as it was today. Looking at historic properties for example – some still feature single glazing where triple glazing now exists and can massively increase thermal efficiency. The same can be said for conservatory roofs – the materials that were used in the part were not designed with thermal efficiency in mind.
It has been independently proven that a Guardian Warm Roof can save you money on your energy bills, using high-performance insulation that achieves a superior U-value of only 0.18 W/m.K (England & Wales) and 0.15 W/m.K (Scotland).
This demonstrates that not only can you save money on energy bills – you can also arrange for a conservatory roof replacement that allows you to enjoy your conservatory at all times of the year. There are other reasons as to why polycarbonate or glass was used historically for conservatory roofs:
- These materials were used to reduce costs during the installation process. This doesn’t mean to say that conservatory roofs are more expensive now – this was just used to try and reduce costs but still had a number of issues. It can be argued that the issues were also fairly known.
- Polycarbonate is a strong material which is why it’s used as a construction material. However – the issues that are caused by this material far outweigh the benefits of the structural strength of this material.
- Polycarbonate is clear and lightweight which is again why it was and still is used as a conservatory roof material. The problem also lies with the fact that polycarbonate is also very loud – especially when it rains. The material in fact can be deafening loud – if you have sat under a polycarbonate roof in extreme weather – you will know that you can barely hear anything whilst in the room.
Transforming Your Conservatory into a Living Space
A conservatory should be a fully functional room that you can enjoy all year round. Many homeowners do not want to upgrade their home themselves when they need an additional living space or office so an extension or conservatory is the perfect solution. Clearly – if you are unable to use your conservatory at all times of the year – it’s impossible to use your conservatory as a living space. If you are working from home – it’s likely that you need more living space than ever which means that it is not ideal that you cannot use your extension to its full potential.
How Can a Guardian Warm Roof Help?
The Guardian Warm Roof System was designed with a number of specific benefits in mind as well as developing the solution for polycarbonate and glass conservatory roofs that are not thermally efficient.
The installation process of the Guardian Warm Roof System is one of the key benefits. The transformation process only takes a few days and is carried out with minimum disruption to you and your home.
