An ‘A-Rated’ Lean To Conservatory In Dawlish

Posted by on Thursday, July 14, 2016 in Conservatories | 0 comments

An existing customer in Dawlish, asked us to replace their existing lean to conservatory, which was an old aluminium type construction with single glazing.  The client commenting that the old conservatory was unusable to its extreme temperature difference.  Too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.

We discussed with the customer about the option of  going open plan by removing the existing patio door and window, which will give a greater feeling of a larger usable space and by having a fully ‘A-Rated’ Conservatory it would no longer be cold in the winter or hot in the summer.  So the conservatory would become a 365 day, fully usable space with French Doors leading to the garden

Once we had removed the old conservatory our team soon made a start by lifting up the old concrete floor and exposing the groundworks required.  Excavating the footings ready for the bricks and blockwork to be formed.  Next step…….install the framework!

Once all the frames and french door were installed, we where then ready to install the ‘A-Rated’ Lean To Roof to compliment the framework.

When the conservatory was watertight, we were then able to remove the internal patio doors and adjoining window, so we could create the stud wall around the existing opening, ready for our electrical and plumbing work to commence including new radiator.  All thats left was to finish the floor, plaster skim the walls and reveals including where the old patio dividing  door and window once were.

Now that the conservatory has been completed, all that is left to do, is for the customer to decorate and furnish.
