Conservatories Online - Free Guide to Conservatory Base and Dwarf Wall Construction

Firstly a big THANK YOU - To Ultraframe PLC. This section of our guide is based almost completely on their excellent Step by Step Construction Guide. We are very pleased to recommend Europe's Leading Conservatory Systems Manufacturer and their roofing components.

The guide, by its very nature, can only be a GENERAL GUIDE. Soil and site circumstances will vary depending on area. It is quite possible that you will not have to complete all of the steps in their entirety. It is even possible you will need to complete some additional steps. Always take relevant professional advice when in doubt.

This guide is divided into four pages - to follow this guide online click on the relevant PAGE NUMBER at the bottom.

3. Additional steel mesh reinforcement is introduced to the concrete foundation to prevent the drainage pipe being crushed. Another alternative sometimes favoured instead of steel mesh is to insert concrete lintels above the drain in order to bridge it . 4. Concrete is poured into the trench to form the foundations. The concrete is a minimum of 150mm thick.
