DIY Lean-To Conservatories

Conservatory Land’s DIY lean-to conservatories offer you an easy, fast, and affordable way to extend your home.

Widely regarded as the most simple and suitable option for both modern and traditional homes, lean-to conservatories are a popular choice amongst our customers – and for good reason. 

Adding a distinctive Mediterranean feel – lean-to conservatories are all about making the most of natural sunlight, irrespective of the amount of space you have to play with. 

There are also a range of other lean-to conservatory benefits to consider as you explore your options with us.

In the meantime, if you do have any burning questions about lean-to conservatories – don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

You can even request a free brochure to give yourself a more detailed view of our outstanding range of DIY lean-to conservatories. 


Benefits of a lean-to conservatory

Because of its sloped roof, a lean-to conservatory (or sunlounge conservatory) looks like it is “leaning” against the house – so rainwater runs off the front.

If you want to add space to your home with a stylish conservatory, the lean-to model is one of our customer favourites.

Benefits include:

  • Highly insulated and warm
  • Choice of a dwarf wall or a full-height lean-to conservatory
  • Polycarbonate roofing system up to 32mm thick (glass option also available)
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Ideal solution for bungalows or houses restricted by height
  • Affordable way of adding space
  • Increases your property’s value
  • 10-year guarantee on all parts.

If you want to find out more about lean-to conservatories (including pricing information), you can request a free brochure by filling out our 20-second brochure form.

Our lean-to conservatory range is also showcased in our customer gallery. This is a good opportunity to explore the different sizes of lean-to conservatories pos-assembly.

How to order a lean-to conservatory

Are you ready to order your DIY lean-to conservatory? Would you like free delivery?

Here’s what you need to do…

  1. Measure up for your conservatory (rough estimates are fine at this stage).
  2. Call us on 0800 952 8000 to receive a free no obligation quote.
  3. Place your order then and there, or give us a call back after you’ve had time to think about it.
  4. Once you have placed an order you will be assigned a dedicated advisor. Your telephone advisor will be available to provide help and support throughout the build process should you require it.

Once you’ve gone through the process, we can provide you with digital CAD design to show you what your lean-to conservatory will look like.

Upon the arrival of your order, you will have also specified whether you intend to go down the DIY lean-to conservatory route by completing the build by yourself – or chosen to hire a local approved installer to do it on your behalf. 

This might be a better option if you don’t feel equipped to build the conservatory yourself – whether that’s through lack of time or lack of faith in your own DIY skills. 

Regardless of the path you choose, help is at hand. If you do opt to go down the DIY route – we’re only a phone call away if you need assistance with the build.

How to build a lean-to conservatory

So, now you’ve bought your lean-to conservatory, all the parts have been delivered – what’s next?

It’s time to assemble it.

All our DIY conservatories come with clear, easy-to-follow installation instructions and most of our customers find that it’s not nearly as difficult as they thought it would be. You can call our advisors at any point during the process if you require any help.

If you don’t have the time to build your own conservatory, or would rather leave the job to a professional, then why not call in one of our approved installers?

All our Conservatory Land approved installers have been thoroughly vetted, so you can rest assured that they will complete the job quickly and to a high standard.


Do you need planning permission for a lean-to conservatory?

No – the likelihood is that you’ll never need planning permission for a lean-to conservatory in normal circumstances. 

Conservatories are considered to be ‘permitted developments’ – which means that they are completely fine to build without the need for planning permission. 

That being said, there are a few exceptional and frankly very unlikely circumstances whereby planning permission would be required for a lean-to conservatory. 

This includes: 

  • If the conservatory extends beyond the furthest side wall of your house. 
  • If the conservatory takes up more than 50% of the land area around your house. 
  • If the conservatory is higher than the roof of your house (and if the conservatory exceeds 4 metres in height). 
  • If the conservatory is at the front or side of your property – facing a public highway. 
  • The eaves within two metres of the neighbouring boundary exceed three metres in height. 
  • The extension includes balconies, raised platforms or verandas. 

Again, these are all very unlikely when it comes to a standard lean-to conservatory plan – but not unheard of. 

If any of these apply then planning permission is likely to be needed in order to proceed with the planned build of a lean-to conservatory.

Lean-to Conservatory cost

We’ve talked a lot about how we offer cheap lean-to conservatories. But exactly how much does one cost?

All our conservatories are made-to-measure, so the price of your DIY lean-to extension will completely depend on the dimensions of your space and the style and materials that you choose.

Just a few of the features that can affect the overall cost of your lean-to extension include:

  • Type of glazing.
  • Whether you require a base.
  • Dimensions.
  • Whether you install the lean-to yourself.
  • Style of frame.

We also offer a range of interest-free and low-credit finance packages to make paying for your new conservatory easy and affordable.


Small lean-to conservatories

Our small lean-to conservatories mean that even if you live in a bungalow or have a very small backyard, you can still add extra living space to your home.

A small lean-to conservatory takes fewer materials to build, which is reflected in the price, making it an affordable solution to gaining more space.

Even adding a small amount of floor space will increase your level of comfort and add value to your home.

Customer Quote

This was my first ever project of this kind, so initially I had concerns about the self-build, but Conservatory Land made it really easy for me. From the ground works to the finished product I was able to do the whole build by myself with just a couple of calls to the technical department at Conservatory Land for advice. After finalising the design I was amazed how quickly the manufacturing process was, and had my conservatory delivered less than a month later. I’m very pleased with the finished product, and love how it’s improved the house’s feeling of connection to the garden. I was recommended Conservatory Land and I will certainly be doing the same. You can expect a highly professional service. Thank you Conservatory Land! Mr Adrian Hard, Surrey
