Diy Conservatories for Bungalows

February 11th, 2010

If you find that you have a height restriction on the back of your house or simply that you are trying to find a Diy conservatory for a bungalow you have several options. Most companies will offer you a lean to conservatory. To start with you need to work out what the minimum height is for your Diy conservatory. This is determined by standing outside and looking back at the bungalow what the lowest point is on your property. This is usually the top of the back door or the top of the windows on the bungalow. Once you have this dimension don’t forget that if you are planning on having doors opening inwards to your conservatory to allow for the door to open. As a guide this dimension is around 2100mm high on most properties.
You then need to see if you have enough room above the door/windows to guide the wall plate over above the door and under the soffit. If you don’t it’s not a problem this is usually the case. All we need is the dimensions of the soffit that is stopping you putting the conservatory onto the bungalow wall and we will design your conservatory to fit the frames under the soffit and the fly the conservatory roof onto the front of the fascia for you.
Although this sounds complicated at Diy conservatory quote we will send you out a quick and simple form to fill in and then we do all the hard work for you.
If a lean to conservatory is not for you another option for Diy conservatories for bungalows is the hipped back conservatory. This style of conservatory adds a 4th dimension to your roof and allows for a box gutter to be bolted to your property above the minimum window height and below the soffit. These hipped back conservatories come in a number of styles including hipped back Edwardian conservatory and hipped back Victorian conservatory. If you look at our quotes page you can find online pricing for all these different styles of conservatory.

Conservatory Design
At DIY Conservatory Quote we offer the best conservatory design advice for your conservatories. Take a typical Edwardian Conservatory, this flat fronted design is the most spacious and its internal spaces give you the most room for your money.
When designing a conservatory the first thing to consider is what am I going to use this conservatory for?
If its going to be a dining room on the back of the house is it big enough to comfortably seat your table and guests with out being cramped. If its going to be a TV room do I need a glass roof to keep the noise of the rain down on cold winter nights.

Lean to Conservatories

August 5th, 2009

Lean to Conservatory

The lean to conservatory is the first thing that comes into people’s minds when they think of a conservatory. This style of conservatory has been made popular by the high street diy stores offering them in lean to conservatory kits as a modular build.
Take a typical Lean to Conservatory, this flat fronted design is the most spacious and its internal spaces give you the most room for your money. With no diagonal facets its conservatory base is the easiest of all the conservatories to mark out and build. Its roof is usually polycarbonate with horizontal roof bars running from the house wall to the front of the conservatory. Its roof comes in two angles 2.5 degree and 5 degrees with plastic firings to fill in each end. Personally I would always go for the 5 degree options as the rain tends to run off quicker and the steeper angle inhibits moss and that familiar green slime that can build up over time. Always get the thickest polycarbonate roof you can I would say that a 25mm roof for your lean to conservatory is a minimum.
