How to Find and Fix a Leaking Conservatory Roof

If your conservatory roof is leaking, it means there’s a gap or crack that shouldn’t be there. A professional needs to assess it. Write down as much information about the leak as possible.

Do you know where it’s coming from? When does it happen? Does it get worse when the wind blows in a certain direction? Take photos if you can. This will help diagnose the problem faster. All conservatories are designed to keep out water, even in heavy rain.

A leak can cause damage to the flooring, walls, furniture, and electricals in your conservatory. That’s why it’s important to find and fix the leak quickly. If you wait too long, it will cost more and take more time to repair the damage.

When looking for a leak in your conservatory, check the finial point, the wall it’s attached to, and the beams between the glass panes. These are the most common areas where leaks occur. You’ll need a professional to come and assess the damage and fix it as soon as possible. They may need to remove panes from the roof and seal the area again.

There’s a leak near the finial point on my conservatory

The finial point is the decorative point on top of some conservatories. If there’s a leak near it, it may mean the seal or attachment to the ridge body wasn’t installed correctly. To fix this, a qualified installer will carefully take apart the finial point and attach it again. If you bought a conservatory from us, call or request a service visit for a repair.

Water in the gutters or boxgutters on your conservatory

Unlike the gutters on your house, which are angled, conservatory gutters are level. It’s normal for water to stand in them. This follows the code of Practice for Drainage of Roofs BSEN12056-3:2000.
