Vital Signs You Require Conservatory Roof Repairs

Posted On: 30th Aug 2019

In the last few years, conservatories have become quite a big trend amongst modern home owners in London, and now, most houses have one. If you have moved into a new home or your current one has a conservatory, it is likely that it needs to have the roof checked out and even repaired.

The need for conservatory roof repairs

Conservatories aren’t a cheap home investment, and so, like the house, require regular attention. Feel free to ask our glaziers to get it properly insulated so that you can make the most of your investment rather than letting it ‘rot’ away and just take up space.

If there is a leaky roof, this may lead to damage to your belongings and the exterior of your home. In any case, you should repair the roof soon or inquire for a new roof when you find any significant leakage.

A lot of condensation

A lot of condensation in the conservatory is generally a sign that the roof and the sealant between the double glazing glass and the uPVC is damaged or not installed properly. If you notice an increased amount of condensation, then it is important to have your conservatory roof checked by a professional soon.

Uneven temperature

Though conservatories require more effort to be kept as warm as your home, the conservatory should never be too cold to the point where you can’t comfortably stay there. When you find your conservatory to be either too hot or cold, then this means that there is a problem. This might be due to leakage in the roof that lets air in or there could be an issue with the sealant either with the uPVC or on your windows. 

Your conservatory requires proper cleaning

Conservatories are not typically a high maintenance extension, however, they do require proper cleaning internally and externally on regular basis in order to be kept in a good condition. But it hardly requires extensive maintenance. If you do not clean the conservatory properly, then this may get clogged up with mould, debris and moss from dirt and fallen leaves which can cause damage over time.

When your conservatory leaks after the necessary repairs

If you have previously experienced leakage problems with the conservatory, make sure that you keep an eye out after any repairs, just to ensure that everything is how it should be.

Most people want to install a new roof to solve all leaking issues and save money. In this case, you need to pay for singular glazing roof repairs.

Another way to prevent this issue is using quality materials for the conservatory roof. Tiled roofs can reduce the chances of roof leakage though they can still leak after extensive wear.

Sudden drafts of cold air

Drafts of cold air in the conservatory are a sign of an insulation issue. If the draft is not coming from doors or windows, then there is probably some damage with the structure of conservatory or the roof.

A draft makes the conservatory uninhabitable within the winter months despite how much you turn up your heating. This situation usually occurs from wear over time, but it might be the issue of the sealant being fitted improperly. If that is the case, this issue can be easily resolved.
