Replacement conservatory

July 2018 Customer of the Month Case Study – Replacement Conservatory: Lean-To – Chester

Our July customer of the month purchased a replacement conservatory from ConservatoryLand, and was very pleased with the finished product.

Purchasing a DIY conservatory has the added benefit of a quicker build time, allowing you to make the most of the new space.

And what better time to enjoy it than in the summer months. Allowing you to step out of your conservatory and into the garden – creating a real feel of openness.

Mr Brown from Chester will definitely be making the most of his new conservatory now the weather is warmer.

He purchased a lean-to conservatory to replace his existing model.

The name is given to the fact the roof slopes down, allowing rain water to run off; making it look as if it was leaning against your house.

If you are considering replacing your existing conservatory you’ll probably be thinking – how much does a DIY lean-to extension cost?

Here at ConservatoryLand we pride ourselves in offering low prices, with every quote being bespoke to you and your requirements.

As the project was about replacing an existing build, conservatory plans focused around this.

And being the chosen conservatory company, we had to overcome a range of challenges.

The key challenge involved the tired wooden conservatory which stood there.

In particular, it was crucial that the conservatory size exactly matched the existing base, as this was what the customer would build on.

Once this was overcome, Mr Brown was able to build his conservatory over a weekend using the instructions provided.

Take a look at the customers CAD drawings below.

The Installation Process

The speed of build was largely influenced by the fact our lean to conservatory designs are one of the simplest models to build yourself.

Prior to commencing the conservatory construction, Mr Brown called technical support a few times, whom provided him with the confidence to get building.

In just 1 weekend his new conservatory was built.

And as you can see from the images below, the transformation is amazing.

With the assurance of knowing all parts have a 10 year guarantee.
