Guardian roof cost of prefabricated build
The roof itself is built off-site, which makes it far quicker to install than a traditional conservatory roof. This also means it can be installed all year round – and in as little as three days. In addition to making a conservatory more comfortable in terms of temperature, a Guardian roof will reduce glare from the sun and won’t result in textiles or the wooden furniture itself fading. Cleaning of the roof is easier than that of a glass or polycarbonate version too. That’s because any debris can simply be hosed off the roof. It will then fall into the guttering, which can easily be fished out. In the case of glass or polycarbonate, a professional would need to be hired to clean the roof, resulting in additional costs. And, on the subject of money, a Guardian roof will always result in lower utility bills, thanks to its superb insulation properties. This means that the Guardian roof cost will work out cheaper in the long run than inferior insulating conservatory roof types. It’s difficult to put an actual cost on the Guardian roof since conservatories vary in size and style. There is also variation in terms of which tiles you opt for. The company itself put its solid roofs at a minimum of £7,000 with a maximum price of around £20,000.

Putting a solid roof on a conservatory
Putting a solid roof on a conservatory makes perfect sense. It makes your conservatory more energy efficient because it’s better insulated. This, in turn, means it can be used as an additional room for your family all year round.
At P&K Home Improvements, we use Guardian roofs. Since 2010 it's been easier to fit solid roofs on a conservatory. Before a change in Building Regulations, conservatory roofs had to be at least 75 per cent glazed. That means there wasn’t a lot of hiding from the sun’s glare, making many conservatories almost impossible to sit in during weeks of intense heat.
Another benefit of having a solid, pitched roof - as opposed to a flat transparent version – is that it’s more difficult to break into the former. And that means a better night’s sleep for the whole household.
Why Choose a Solid Roof?
Putting a solid roof on a conservatory is an excellent alternative to polycarbonate and glass. These lightweight synthetic tiles resemble natural stone, slate or cement tiles. Not only are they more thermally efficient, but they also look better. They also have a more contemporary look than transparent PVC or glass roofs. That also makes your home easier to sell when moving on.
Just because you have a solid tiled roof, it doesn’t mean you can’t still have daylight flooding down into your conservatory from the roof. Velux windows provide the perfect answer here.
