Upvc Lean-to Conservatories:
As one of the simplest styles, and with some of the lowest online conservatory prices, lean-to designs are perfect for somewhere to start & can even be found in “kits” with pre-fabricated bases & sides which offer great value for money.
On the other hand, the size & look of the Lean-to Conservatory is not limited to being a “glorified greenhouse” as there are many options which can enhance the appearance such as:
• Dwarf walls in brickwork
• Solid in-fill panels
• Full-Glass sides / Half-Glass Sides
• French Doors or Folding Doors
• Wood-grain effect or smooth surfaces
• Choice of colours
• Patterned or Leaded Glass
The advantage of having a simple rectangular or square floor plan is that you can utilise all the space, as there are no awkward corners or angles to contend with when considering how or where to place your furniture.
With so much glass used in the walls, it is well worthwhile thinking about how to regulate the temperature inside the conservatory as the outside weather can have quite an effect on the heat or cold that builds up on the inside of the room.
There are a couple of ways to address this issue:
• Thermally efficient (low-e) glazed units can regulate the flow of heat & cold through the glass.
• Under-floor heating can provide efficient and even heating during colder months.
• Roof Vents can greatly improve ventilation & reduce excess heat build-up during sunny days.
• Poly-carbonate roofing panels can help to reduce heat build-up.
• Tinted or coloured glass can also help regulate internal heat build-up.
• Air Conditioning, although not essential, can really make the room very pleasant all year round.
• Venetian, Roller or Roman Window Blinds; a cheap & effective way to control light.
Replacement conservatory roof
With such a lot of glass in the roofing it can mean that in sunny weather your conservatory may become too hot. One of the most common actions owners take to combat this is to fit Venetian or Roman blinds to the interior of the roof panels which can block direct sunlight and for some this could be a simple & cost effective answer, however fitting blinds does not fully stop the heat build-up and even though the direct sunlight issues is solved, your conservatory could still become very uncomfortable & stuffy due to heat build-up.
A second, more permanent solution could be to go for a replacement roof and with many options now available it could be just the thing for you. Find out more at: https://www.localconservatoryprices.co.uk/
