How to Fix a Leaking Conservatory

You’re sitting in your conservatory, winding down from the busy day you’ve had and enjoying some peace and quiet. When all of a sudden, you hear dripping from the corner of the room. The instant dread of what it might be, and realisation that it is what you thought… You have a leaking conservatory roof!

No one likes this feeling, and no one wants a leaking roof! So, what do you do?

 

Why is My Conservatory Leaking?

The usual cause for a leaking conservatory roof is outdated framework which has gradually deteriorated over time, creating holes. However, it could be an issue with the original installation. When slotting panels into frames, the installer may not have fitted it currently, or the company may have measured the pieces wrong.

 

How to Stop Your Conservatory from Leaking

If you have recently had your conservatory installed and discovered a leak. The first thing to do is call the company who you bought it from. They should offer advise and have one of their installers to revisit the roof and fix it.

In the meantime, you need to block the hole from allowing more water to get inside and spread to damaging your furniture.

Unfortunately, the majority of conservatory owners find their framework rotting away and needs sorting. Therefore, they have two solutions, a short term and a long term.

Short Term Fix to a Leaking Conservatory Roof

Short term solution is to wait until the weather is dryer and climb onto the roof to seal the hole using a sealant. But, do you really want to be climbing on the roof? This is a short-term solution for a reason, it might solve your problem for the time being but who’s to say that a leak won’t appear on another part of your conservatory roof.
