Joyce and Parry have two lovely little dogs, Oskar and Teddy, who enjoyed lying in the sun at the back door. This gave them the idea of adding a small conservatory to the back of the house so they could enjoy the warmth there whatever the weather.
After Bill visited them for a consultation, it was decided a lean to glass conservatory was the most suitable option.
A beautiful white lean to glass conservatory with a Pilkington Activ blue glass roof was constructed. The blue glass reflects the sun enhancing the solar control performance, whilst maintaining the thermal properties of the room in cold weather. The roof was also sloped with a pitch of five degrees to allow the self cleaning glass to work.
Joyce wanted her French doors level with the back of her property. By doing this, it allowed space to construct a porch above the French doors, which has now come in very useful in the wetter weather. We used a 70mm powder coated steel pole to support the porch, as Joyce and Parry live in a coastal area. This will protect the post from the marine corrosion elements and prevent rust.
Toughened Elite Low-E glass was used for the walls, and we also replaced the back door into the kitchen.
Originally small steps were planned between the conservatory, house and garden. This was changed to modify the floors with inclines and mobility thresholds were fitted to all of the doors, removing any trip hazards.
The lean to glass conservatory was constructed quickly, with minimum disruption to Joyce and Parry. The fitting teams were always clean and proficient, leaving their home tidy at all times.
Oskar and Teddy love their new space, as they can now enjoy the warmth of the sun from their cosy beds. They definitely give it a ’round of appaws’. We must agree, we love what they have done with it too!
It is safe to say, in the nicest possible way, this conservatory has ‘gone to the dogs!’ To arrange a consultation and a free quote contact us today.
