CONSERVATORY STYLE

Ultraframe Lean To Sunroom Conservatories

This type of conservatory will run in a straight line along the back of a house making the most of every square metre of your floor area. As a result, this makes the Lean To Conservatory a great way to expand your home if you have the width but not necessarily the depth.

What is a Lean to Conservatory?

A lean-to conservatory has a flat angled roof that slopes downward, allowing rain to run off the roof.

This is what gives this conservatory style the appearance of ‘leaning’ against a house (hence it’s name).

Ideal for houses restricted by height, this low pitched roof can be accommodated for awkward spaces, making it the perfect choice for bungalows or terraced properties.

This small conservatory will not restrict any space at the side of the house.

Those with Victorian or Edwardian terraced homes can create a long and narrow lean-to style which extends beautifully into the garden.

Lean-To Conservatories Bespoke Design

If you are searching for a stylish yet understated look, then the lean-to conservatory is the fuss free structure you are looking for.

Aesthetically similar to a Mediterranean sunroom, the Lean-To Conservatory is ideal for those who prefer a subtler look – it’s clean lines and structure complementing your property, rather than overshadowing it.

A lean-to conservatory is typically a rectangular or square shape. The rectangular shaped lean-to conservatory has the longer side running along the back of the property.

A flat angled roof slopes downward, allowing rain to run off the roof. This is what gives this conservatory style the appearance of ‘leaning’ against a house which is how it the lean-to conservatory gets its name.

Lean-To Conservatory Roofs

As discussed, the roof for your Lean-to conservatory is downward sloping.

The roof is low pitched compared to other conservatory styles which have an apex roof design.

That is why Lean-to conservatories are a great choice for bungalows-they are perfect for homes that have restricted space under the eaves.

The pitch of the lean-to conservatory’s roof can vary, making it extremely adaptable for any awkward space. A shallow pitch can fit under a low bungalow roof whilst a steeper lean-to roof can be fitted to a terraced property.

Roofing Options For Conservatories

Options for your Lean-to conservatory roof include -as aforementioned – solid panels, tiles , glass and polycarbonate materials.

Polycarbonate is the more affordable option; however, a glass conservatory has greater aesthetic value and will let in more light. Which roof is best for a Lean-to conservatory? Let’s have a look.

Polycarbonate Conservatory Roofs

A polycarbonate roof for your Lean-to conservatory might seem appealing, as it’s the least expensive option; but it is inefficient at soundproofing and insulating – so will cost you more money in the long-term.

A Lean-To Conservatory With Solid Roof

You may also want to think about a tiled or solid roof. They will retain heat more effectively and keep out unwanted noise.

However, bear in mind that a solid roof will let in less light, so you may want to think about installing a velux-style or lantern window to overcome this problem.

Roof Ventilation

When it comes to lean-to conservatory design, ventilation is an important aspect which must be considered.

You will have a choice of either manual or electronically operated roof vents. Electronic roof vents swift ventilation but manual vents are the cheapest option.

Thermally Efficient Conservatory Roofs

Alternatively, you can buy thermally efficient glass roofs for conservatories that are filled with gas, which prevents unnecessary heat from escaping.

Some models are even self-cleaning and use a substance called titanium dioxide to keep your windows dirt free all year round.

Lean-To Conservatory Installation

Lean-to conservatories are the most straightforward of conservatory styles to install. The installation of a lean-to conservatory should take a few weeks.

Make sure you agree to a timescale and schedule with your conservatory installation company beforehand. That way you will know when you can expect to have the installation finished.

Conservatories that are cool in the summer and warm in the winter

As the most used material in a conservatory is glass, it is important to consider your energy efficiency and how you plan to manage inside temperatures.

You have many options when it comes to kitting out your conservatory for killer efficiency.

  • Thermal glass can be used in sealed units to help maintain heat.
  • Under-floor heating to provide a consistent temperature – especially during colder periods.
  • Roof vents will aid air flow, preventing heat from building up in the summer.
  • Tinted glass can help reduce sun glare.
  • Although pricey, air conditioning is also an option if you want to keep your space cool during hotter months.
  • Conservatory blinds allow you to control the amount of light that enters your conservatory. This keeps your space cool in the summer, warmer in the winter and also provides greater privacy.
