I've found that water leaks into our conservatory when there 's both rain
and strong wind. (OK in normal rain so far)
I've taken some photos, can anyone help me by suggesting if the seal to the
rest of the house looks good or a bit dodgy, or what the best solution
The DIY needed for this is a bit beyond my experience at the moment!
Photos are at
The wall above the doors apears to be plasterboard attached to the external
wall, with sealant between the plasterboard and a peice of hard wood.
Water was dripping through(!) the sealant all along. When I took the sealant
away the drip was just in one place, under the apex.
Does this point to the seal at the apex of the roof being faulty? Or does it
look a bit iffy all along?
But since it only happens in strong wind perhaps the water is getting blown
in at the sides?
I guess it could be that it's filling up every time it rains but the sealant
holds most times (in which case it will leak every time now!)
If it needs resealing to the house outsideat the apex , how do I get to it -
do I use a roof ladder on the conservatory?
We bought the house 2 months ago, and the conservatory is about 3 yrs old.
thanks in advance
