WELCOME TO OUR  QUICK SURVEY GUIDE

This guide will assist you if wish to make your own site survey - perhaps prior to having a designer or sales representative visit your home.

It will also assist those of us who prefer a DIY approach and will serve as a useful "aide-memoire " when ordering from your supplier.

We have listed some "getting started" tips on this page. When you are ready, go to the main guide content by clicking here.

BEFORE WE GET STARTED - A FEW QUICK TIPS

"Our first tip is unique to UK visitors (North American Visitors - this does not apply)"

Try and get used to measuring in millimetres (mm). There are 1000 mm in a metre. There are 25.4 mm in an inch. If you are at all uncertain about measuring in mm then give your measurements in both mm and inches.
Invest in a good quality (large blade) tape measure.
Never assume your house wall is plumb. Using a line and weight, check your wall for plumb (fix line to house wall at ridge level temporarily and let weight hang at end of line at DPC level). If the wall overhangs the base add this measurement to your base dimensions. For instance if you have an overhang of 20 mm and the base has a 3400 mm projection then you would make the overall base projection 3420 mm. The conservatory frames will still be manufactured to suit a 3400 mm projection and you will pack off / make good to conservatory frame.
As a generalisation the internal width of a conservatory frame / roof is external width less 200 mm and internal depth is external depth less 100 mm in all "normal" three sided lean to or Edwardian styles with no box gutters etc.

On our next page in this guide you will find tips on measuring along with illustrations of the most common "site difficulties" found. To enter the next page click here.

WARNING - This Quick survey guide is not intended to replace a professional site survey - it is not a comprehensive guide to surveying for conservatory and sunrooms. If you have a particularly difficult site - you will wish to enlist the assistance of the relevant professional. We do however hope it will assist you in evaluating your site and it's potential for an outdoor living space.
