The Right Foundation
A conservatory is a building extension just like any other, so it needs the same foundations as any building work.
This means it has to be level and effectively damp-proofed and insulated to recognised standards in accordance with Building Regulations.
To be stable, it must be dug out to a depth that will vary according to local conditions.
Where brick or stone is visible in the base or in dwarf walls, materials should be chosen that match the main building unless you specifically want something different.
Shown above some typical ‘good practice’ foundation details, however, local soil conditions may require some variance to these. It is fact that up to 35% of your conservatory quote will be for groundwork, every reason to ensure that your dream investment is built on a good foundation.
