One of the most popular conservatories our customers go for is the classic lean to conservatory – and again, this month’s case study is all about one of our successful lean to customer projects.
Mr & Mrs Anstey called upon our local approved installer network to find a reliable installer to assemble their new conservatory for them at their home in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
And, it’s fair to say they were rather pleased with the outcome…
Thanks to the spacious garden area to work with, the approved installer was able to get the new conservatory erected in no time – 3 days to be precise.
That’s good going for a large conservatory, even without the need to put together any heavy brickwork components.
The Project Technical Specifications
|Name||Mr & Mrs Anstey|
|Conservatory style||Lean To Conservatory|
|Dimensions||3500mm x 3000mm (made to measure to customers requirements)|
|Glazing||Standard glass in the windows. Blue Self Cleaning, Solar Control Glass Roof|
|Base type||ConservaBase with uPVC skirt|
|Colour||White PVCu, 24mm Blue Self Cleaning, Solar Control Glass for the roof, Chrome handles.|
As mentioned above, there were no dwarf walls to construct for Mr & Mrs Anstey’s conservatory. Instead, the ConservaBase would not need to cater for external brickwork.
Instead it would be skirted with white PVCu to match the frames.
While the side windows would be formed from standard glass, Mr & Mrs Anstey opted for blue self-cleaning solar control glass for the roof.
This type of glass does exactly what it says on the tin.
While alleviating the need to manually clean the windows on a regular basis, this type of glazing also makes the sun’s rays much less invasive as the name suggests.
With their required dimensions taken into consideration, we were able to develop a CAD drawing to show the customer what their new conservatory would look like after completion.
As you can see, the customer wanted a side door to open out onto their garden path as opposed to a back door leading to their lawn.
We can always cater for small design functionalities like this to ensure our customers get exactly what they need from their bespoke conservatory.
One of the main challenges of this project was that Mr & Mrs Anstey were working on a fairly tight budget for what they wanted.
Therefore, our sales team worked with the customer meticulously, explaining different ways to reduce the cost to get the best conservatory for the budget they had.
After finalising the design, the customer arranged for the delivery to arrive 6 weeks after on a date they specifically chose as the most ideal.
Lean To Conservatory Installation Process
One of the key requirements for Mr & Mrs Anstey was a quick build with minimum disruption.
As a result, they sourced an approved installer to take on the challenge. Even though they had pouring rain to contend with – they managed to erect the conservatory within 3 days.
Starting with the ConservaBase, the foundations needed to be applied properly to align with the required dimensions of the conservatory. This would start up against the border of the neighbouring fence.
With the ConservaBase firmly bolted to the ground, the solid foundations were in place for the conservatory to be built from the ground up.
This meant that the next stage could commence – careful assembly of the frames.
With the frames in place, the standard glazing could be applied before adding the lean to roof.
As mentioned this would include blue self-cleaning solar control glazing – so the glazing bars would need to be carefully assembled to accommodate the glass panels.
Then, the various finishing touches were added by the approved installer before tidying the build site.
With the project completed with minimal disruption – it’s fair to say that Mr & Mrs Anstey were thrilled with the planning and execution of the build.
“After contacting many companies, ConservatoryLand were the most helpful and went through the design process step by step. We would definitely recommend them. From start to finish they have been great.“
