Conservatory Extension

We were contacted in December 2017 by Mrs Hardy in Bournemouth, who was interested in extending her home with a new cheap lean-to conservatory.

The client wanted a space where she can socialise and relax in her home, whilst having the views from her garden.

The first step we took was updating Mrs Hardy of the conservatory planning permission Bournemouth residents have to be aware of. As experts in this field we can advise you of what you need to be wary of.

During the consultation our team recommended a lean-to conservatory. They are ideal for bungalows and properties with height restrictions or low ceilings. As the roof was lower than expected, the installation team created a bespoke roof system called high back box gutter for the conservatory.

Benefits of a Lean To Conservatory Extension In Dorset

The main benefits of lean to conservatories is that they are flexible in style and sizes as they have a low-pitched roof, they’re also adaptable for smaller spaces so our client doesn’t need to make a big commitment to a large extension. The conservatory’s large glass panels will also allow our client’s bungalow to be flooded with natural daylight, keeping the new addition light and airy. This sort of conservatory roof Bournemouth is perfect for with its bright sunshine. Our solid conservatory roof systems are second to none and will last you.

Mrs Hardy raised concerns with our team about the noise created on the roof from rainy weather conditions. So we recommended an Activ Blue glass roof, as it reflects over 60% of the sun’s solar glare with insulated double glazing while being comfortable to sit under while it’s raining – perfect to fit our client’s wishes. The Activ Blue glass roof significantly reduces temperatures and UV rays, so Mrs Hardy’s furniture will be protected from fading more so than other roofing types.

After completion of the conservatory extension, Mrs Hardy was thrilled with her new lean-to conservatory. Our team worked efficiently throughout the designing and installing stages of the high back box gutter, conservatory and Activ Blue glass roof. Mrs Hardy was happy with the service she received with Swain and Rands and would recommend our team to family and friends.
