But what are the tell-tale signs that it is time to replace your conservatory roof?
Condensation appearing on the windows
While condensation on the inside of your windows is not an uncommon problem on most conservatories, on some it may be a sure sign that there is an issue with the performance of your roof.
We have five tips for reducing condensation in double glazing from opening your windows to keeping your house at a reasonable, consistent temperature. However, these may not address the root cause of the condensation – your roof – and if not addressed, condensation will lead to more extension problems such as mould or even, in the more extreme cases, can penetrate walls and get into cavities, causing structural damage. So, it is best to replace your roof sooner rather than later.
