Replacement footings and new step built
The old foundations had deteriorated causing
the conservatory to pull away from the house.
A solution was needed to resolve a conservatory that was suffering from foundations in disrepair.
The scope of the project.
The old foundations had deteriorated and were slipping to the point where the conservatory was pulling away from the house, with visible cracks appearing at the joins.
The extensive building works required for this job also provided an opportunity to revitalise the surrounding base and step that was starting to flag in appearance.
The process of the works:
- The complete deconstruction of the existing conservatory.
- Safely un-installed, stored away to be rebuilt on a new and improved conservatory base.
- Stronger foundations were needed. The existing footings were removed and new were dug deeper than previous and reinforced.
- Entirely new – top quality brick work – was built on the new footings.
- The existing conservatory was re-installed and finished to original standards.
- The new step and paving was fitted, with a path leading down the garden.
The end result?
A fantastic looking step and enlivened brickwork providing a face lift to the entire appearance of the conservatory!
The newly reinforced foundations providing the support for the structure to hold steadfast in the years to come.
