Lean to Conservatories

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.
