Should I patch or replace my leaking conservatory roof?

Conservatory refurbished with a Metrotile Lightweight Roof System Shingle Charcoal

Conservatories are relaxing places that you can enjoy for all kinds of things, while they were originally designed to help promote plant growth, the conservatory of today is a versatile room that can be used for a wide range of things. You can enjoy watching the beauty of the outdoors, use it as a breakfast room and much more.

Whatever you use your conservatory for there’s sure to be one thing that spoils the fun, a leaky roof! Yes, a leaky roof is a problem no matter what room it affects, but a conservatory with a leaky roof can be a more complicated problem.

If you have a solid roof then fixing the issue may be easier but with whole glass roofs or PVC roofs, it can be very tricky. A leak could cause much more damage and cause any holes or cracks to spread.

Can I Patch It?

When faced with a leak in the roof the most common solution is to patch it, unfortunately, with a glass or PVC roof, this is very difficult to accomplish. While patching can be applied (in some cases) it is unlikely to last long, even when professionally applied a patch will usually only be a temporary solution.

When the patch is applied the surface will still be structurally weaker, it might last for a few years or a few days it all really depends on the size of the patch and the environmental conditions. So, don’t expect patches to be a solution you can always rely on.
