    Leaking conservatory roof

    Leaking conservatory roof 9th Oct 06 at 8:31 PM
    We moved into this house in May. We have a good sized conservatory which is used as a year-round reception room. Unfortunately though, when the rain is medium to severe strength, we have a leak from the centre of the polycarbonate roof.

    We've had a windows and conservatories fitter come and fix it. All he could do is use silicone sealant over the joins of the (apparently) affected polycarbonate tiles. Unfortunately this didn't solve the problem, so he came back out today to give it another seal, but he did say he wasn't at all sure this would help. He said that, in order to have a look at what might be causing the problem, he'd have to dismantle the roof and end up installing a new one.

    The guy seemed honest enough and he has done other work for us, but is it really this difficult to diagnose a leak from a poly roof? Also, does anyone know how muck it would cost to replace the roof? The room is about 4m x 3.5m and has a pitched roof.

    There is no trace anywhere on the conservatory of who installed it in the first place. This thing is only 4 years old so whoever installed it must have bodged it!
