Replacement Conservatory in Chorleywood
The old conservatory had served the clients well, but was a bit dated.
Also, being fully south-facing the conservatory got very hot and the clients wanted to take advantage of the latest solar-control glass.
The CAD image
The existing doorway was carefully boarded-up before we started dismantling the old conservatory.
The new conservatory was to be larger, so new footings were excavated.
The existing patio was carefully protected
We would then break-out the existing base so a proper damp-proof membrane and additional floor insulation could be fitted.
The pre-fabricated conservatory was installed. Precise surveying had allowed this to be manufactured off-site, but the rear roof pitch perfectly matched the existing.
The tiled roof was to be extended across.
New lead valleys were built as was another tiled section of roof.
One piece of aluminium gutter was damaged in transit and had to be re-made.
