Hello all - I've done my due diligence, so please forgive me if this
has been addressed previously:
We've recently moved into a house which has a lean-to conservatory
attached - in the recent strong wind and rain, we've noticed leaks from
the point at which the PVCu joist runs along the side of the original
house - it's worst is at the apex of the roof.
I've decided that I want to get on top to replace the flashing - I've
no idea how old the conservatory is, nor how good a job has been done
of the current flashing (not that good from the looks of things!).
I've never done this before, but I've checked around and found this:
Has anyone any experience of this? I'm 18stone, and I don't know that
the joists in the roof will take me - they seem to be fairly flexible -
any alternatives for getting access to the join between the
conservatory roof and the house wall, with minimum load on the roof
Also, and sorry to harp on, but am I right in thinking that I just need
to get something like this and stick it on? As well as some sort of
sealant to apply to the join between the flashing and the house wall?
It's probably far more complicated than that, but any pointers
Thanks for any help,
