conservatory means adding extra room to a home with an elegant appearance. Such
an addition can also increase the value of the home. This new room will provide
extra living space in an open and airy room. Many Conservatories are
manufactured for the do-it-your-self homeowner. Meaning the DIY conservatory
can be an affordable project and one that will give the homeowner a sense of
satisfaction. If time constraints or do-it-your-self home improvements are not
for you, a builder can easily construct the conservatory in the designated
space. This will still add more value to the home than it costs to have the
conservatory installed by a conservatory company.
Conservatories are manufactured in styles to match most homes, ranging from
Edwardian, Victorian, Gable fronts and other shapes to enhance and fit any
home. They can even be manufactured to fit on an existing base or brickwork.
This is because once a conservatory is ordered and placed on a computer
generated plan the conservatory can then be manufactured to the specific
dimensions. By using this type of manufacturing process it makes installation
easy with step-by-step instructions and the correct measurements for installing
with existing brickwork.
Prior to purchasing a conservatory many people have questions about ordering,
construction and other questions about whether they will need planning
permission. Purchasing a conservatory can be made easier to the install by
using a company that manufactures the parts after the precise measurements have
been taken. The concern about planning permission in most cases is not a
concern if the conservatory does not measure over 50 or 70 cubic meters. This
does depend on where the home is located and it is advised if there are any
questions about this to contact the local planning department. One of the
reasons for this is the Exemption Criteria in the Building Regulations dated
1991, which states the conservatory roof must be either transparent or
translucent. The walls must be half formed from windows and any radiators that
are placed in the conservatory must have its own separate control for
temperature and an on and off switch. The room also must not contain any type
of drainage, such as a sink installed in the room.
DIY Conservatories are manufactured to fit the home and with many styles to
choose from. They are manufactured in a way that installation will take only
the basic home improvement tools to construct the room. Bespoke
conservatories can be
manufactured to fit areas such as a corner or to fit a bungalow. In some cases
there will also be a hipped-back roof supplied and a box gutter. Another way to
purchase a conservatory is even prior to owning a home a pre-order can be
placed so that when the home is purchased the conservatory can be manufactured
to fit the home.
Above any other reason to add a conservatory to a home, besides the feeling of
accomplishment since it is a DIY project. This is a room that will be dry and
comfortable in any type of weather and can be as formal or relaxed as you
furnish the room for year round living. It is a perfect room for reading the
paper on the weekend while relaxing, or tea with a guest.
