Now that spring has officially sprung, a lot of our customers are doing their yearly spring cleaning. From replacing their windows and doors to changing the roof on their conservatory, we are all planning our spring cleaning post-lockdown home improvements.

This is why we are confident that a lot of you will have thought about replacing your conservatory roof with a Guardian Warm Roof – a precision-engineered and expertly designed roof system that offers outstanding thermal efficiency whilst looking great in the process – and updating the aesthetics of your conservatory.

Warm Roof

Do you need planning permission to update your conservatory roof to a Guardian Warm Roof?

In short: no, you do not need planning permission for a Guardian Warm Roof. Planning permission is only required when you build something new, make a major change to your building; for example, building an extension – or changing the use of your building; for example, commercial to residential.

The reason that planning permission is not required for installing Guardian Warm Roofs is that they are specifically built as a lightweight, thermally efficient alternative to a standard conservatory roof; fulfilling all the purposes of a normal roof with the added benefit of being able to be installed without the need for planning permission. We would encourage you to explore the guidance on the Planning Portal website for specialist advice for other projects.

Another benefit of updating your conservatory roof with a Guardian Warm Roof is that it is pre-approved by the Local Authority Building Control (LABC), which makes it simpler to pass any relevant building regulations. News to your ears, we know!
