Sun Lounge Conservatories are often referred to as Lean-To conservatories or sometimes as a Garden Room.
Sun Lounge Conservatories are the simplest of all conservatory designs and generally have a single pitched roof with angled side frames.
Normally square or rectangular in shape, Sun Lounge Conservatories are generally the most economical of all conservatory designs in terms of build cost though most customers prefer something less plain.
A surveyor can help you to decide not only on the style of conservatory which is right for you and your home.
They can also help with the types of window and door to be incorporated, the levels of ventilation and insulation required and the type of conservatory glazing. You will be advised about Building Regulations and planning permission and of course, pricing.
Most of the installation companies we deal with even produce scale CAD drawings and a superimposed image of Sun Lounge Conservatories onto a photograph of your home.
Surveyors will advise on the use of casement, tilt and turn or sliding sash windows combined with a single door or double doors, sliding patio doors or bi-fold doors. Additional ventilation can be provided by either manually or electrically operated roof vents or proprietary ventilation systems which some manufacturers have designed into their roofs in the ridge and in the eaves beam.
Conservatory designers also take into account the aspect of Sun Lounge Conservatories, as a north facing conservatory will probably need more insulation whereas a south facing conservatory will probably need more ventilation.
Additional protection from the conservatory overheating can be designed in, by recommending heat reflective polycarbonate or anti-sun glass in the roof. The intention is to ensure that all conservatories and orangeries are designed to be usable throughout the whole of the year.
