conservatory hole

Hi I have a small hole about 4 inches x 2 inches in my lean to conservatory roof (reinforced polycarb type) It is a neat rectangle in the direction of the slope without crossing the metal reinforcing bars. This was damage by a contractor working on the roof on the window above. He realised what he had done and sqaured out the whole but never returned to repair it and has now disappeared.
The hole does not let in the rain as it is close to the house wall. Only the out layer is holed but it is starting to fill with loose debris.
Can anyone suggest a way to repair or is it to be a whole new roof ?
Cheers
Chris

clean the surface around the hole, and glue in place. Not sure what glue is recommended, super-glue would probably work, but might not hold up under UV. Window company will know. Hardest part will be getting TO the hole w/o damaging the rest of the roof. Unless you can reach from upstairs window or a ladder, you will need to invent the proverbial 'skyhook'. If you sunroom has a real frame, and not just those thin channels holding the plastic glazing, you can ever-so-gently lay a sheet of plywood across 2 or more rails, and crawl up to the hole. If you are really inventive, you <may> be able to do the patch with duct tape on a stick. Soak a swab with the appropriate solvent to clean the surface, and attach it to a stick with a wad of duct tape. Then, do the same with the patch, after applying a bead of glue to the edges. All this assumes you can get high enough and close enough to reach it with the stick.
Or you could just pay the window company to patch or replace the panel. They will have all the needed ladders and scaffolds and such.
