Modern lean-to conservatory in Hucknall, Nottingham

With the focus shifting from cheap home improvements to long-lasting, quality renovations, it’s hardly surprising that in recent years the popularity of solid conservatory roofs has literally gone through the roof! Probably the most fashionable home improvement choice of the moment, increasing numbers of East Midlands homeowners are realising that creating a comfortable and attractive extra room that delivers year-round enjoyment couldn't be simpler – especially with the support of Stormclad behind them!

With this in mind, we’d like to share our latest modern conservatory installation below – seriously, how could anyone not be inspired by this?!

Pain Points

Just 20 minutes down the A611 to the popular commuter town of Hucknall, we didn’t have to go far for this project! A free design consultation with our glazing experts revealed the need for an additional multi-purpose space that smoothly blended with the rest of the property and the garden, whilst refusing to compromise on natural light and refreshing ventilation. A tiled lean-to conservatory complete with roof vents, slender aluminium bifold doors and innovative tilt and turn windows was suggested and quickly confirmed by these eager Hucknall homeowners. Due to the project featuring a solid roof (which is technically classed as an extension rather than a conservatory), building regulation inspections and approval was required. As an experienced FENSA registered company, this was taken care of in no time at all.

The Solution

Illuminating & airy – a gorgeous modern take on the classic lean-to conservatory

Low maintenance, cost-effective and stylish, lean-to conservatories have become the perfect glazed extension option for homes low on space, funds and time. Focused on creating a bright, warm and inviting space that the whole family could enjoy, the worry was that a tiled roof could make the space dark, stuffy and uninviting. These worries were quickly eliminated by combining the lightweight Guardian roof with two Velux roof vents – literally breathing new life into this Nottinghamshire home.

The Results


Lean to conservatory/extension

Contemporary Anthracite Grey bifold doors from the Origin collection

Ultra-slim aluminium bifold doors are renowned for the way they welcome the outside in. Enhancing space, light and far-reaching garden views, on-trend Anthracite Grey frames were chosen to seamlessly match the bespoke tiled roof design. Delivering uninhibited access between the indoor and outdoor space, this family can now look forward to entertaining in the summer sunshine as well as cosy winter evenings in together.

Deceuninck tilt and turn windows

Known for their space-saving and easy-clean features, our tilt & turn windows are also a fashionable choice when effective ventilation is essential. Cleverly tilting from a top or bottom hinge, consistent airflow is achieved with ease whilst maintaining the highest levels of security and taking up the least space possible. Replicating the sleek, smooth look of aluminium, Deceuninck’s superb uPVC aluminium alternatives are the perfect example of how far uPVC windows have come.
