Technical Information

Most companies can only offer you an option of either a glass or polycarbonate roof for your conservatory. Here at Guardian™ we have invested a considerable amount of time and effort in communicating with Building Control Offices and in October 2010 it became law that you could put a solid roof on your conservatory. There are some basic rules that you will need to comply with. Guardian™ can provide all of the information and if necessary deal with building control officers.

Did you know that you can now replace a conservatory roof with a solid roof without having to apply for building regulations?

There were changes made to the building regulations on October 1st 2010 which allows anyone to put a solid roof on a conservatory as long as they meet the following criteria:

  • They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres in floor area.
  • The conservatory is separated from the house by external quality walls, doors or windows.
  • There should be an independent heating system with separate temperature and on/off controls.
  • Glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the applicable building regulations requirements.

If you have any doubts then please go to the following website link provided by the communities and local government:

If you go to section c25 it clearly states the following:
Where a conservatory or porch does not meet all of the above conditions it is not exempt and approved documents l1b & l2b give guidance on what would be reasonable in meeting the energy efficiency provisions from non-exempt conservatories and porches. Building control bodies will want to note that the definition of conservatory in terms of percentage translucent material as set out in previous editions of the approved documents no longer applies.
