Fitting a conservatory to a bungalow

Fitting a conservatory to a bungalow or single storey extension may seem initially quite a tricky job but with a few simple measurements we can design your building to fit exactly to your home. Using a box gutter you are no longer limited to the traditional lean to style conservatory and can now have the added luxury of an Edwardian or Victorian style of roof.

Box gutters explained

Our box gutters are a structural part of the conservatory roof. Usually around 135mm wide but ranging upto 210mm. Our aluminium box gutter bolts straight on to the house wall. Its robust self supporting design whether used on the side, back or both of the conservatory is easy to fit and made to measure for your design.

In some situations such as a bungalow you may not have enough room under the soffit to fit the box gutter above the back door. In this situation the box gutter can be fitted directly onto the fascia with the window frames of the conservatory carrying on back under the soffit to the wall.

Raised box gutters

This type of box gutter is mainly used in situations where a partial return wall is interfering with the roof. Its high back and additional strength make it ideal for welding and creating turns in the gutter. Its use allows the window frames to be run inline with the wall without the need to build support pillar.

Full height Conservatory walls

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

At www.diyconservatoryquotes.co.uk we keep being asked if we can cater for full height conservatory walls well the answer is yes. Its quite an easy thing to do for us the usual height for a wall is around 27 courses and all we do is design your conservatory window frames 30mm higher than the wall to allow for the thickness of the cill. This means that the ring beam runs straight round the top of the wall and out onto the top of the frames. As long as you have made the wall turn around the right size for you or your builder everything will be fine. If you are unsure about any of this just ask one of our technical guys or better still give us your measurements and we will make it work for you.

Conservatory Box Gutters and Existing Walls

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

 

At www.diyconservatoryquotes.co.uk we can design your conservatory to allow it to join existing walls. Effectively instead of buying the usual 3 sided conservatory you want a 2 sided conservatory, for instance, with a front wall and one side only. We tend to use a 225mm box gutter, that has a box gutter height of 102mm and a front to back depth of 225mm.
