    ROOFING PROBLEMS

    FIXING CONSERVATORY ROOFs IN BURNLEY & pendle

    Addressing these roofing problems typically involves regular maintenance, such as cleaning gutters, inspecting seals, and replacing damaged panels.

    Upgrading insulation and ventilation can also help mitigate issues with condensation and temperature extremes.

    For persistent or severe problems, consulting a professional roofing specialist with experience in conservatories is recommended.

    1. Leaks and Water Ingress

    Leaks are one of the most common problems with conservatory roofs. Poor installation, damaged seals, or degraded roofing materials can allow water to penetrate, leading to water damage inside the conservatory.

    2. Condensation

    Condensation can form on the inside of a conservatory roof, particularly in colder months. This is often due to poor ventilation, insufficient insulation, or the use of incorrect materials that do not provide adequate thermal protection.

    3. Cracked or Broken Panels

    Conservatory roofs often use glass or polycarbonate panels. These panels can crack or break due to impacts from falling debris, severe weather, or general wear and tear. Damaged panels compromise the roof’s integrity and insulation properties.

    4. UV Damage

    Over time, exposure to UV rays can degrade roofing materials, particularly polycarbonate panels. This can cause discoloration, weakening of the material, and reduced effectiveness of UV protection.

    5. Poor Insulation

    Many older conservatories have inadequate insulation, making them too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Modern materials and techniques can improve insulation, but if not properly installed, the conservatory can still suffer from temperature extremes.

    6. Sagging Roof

    A sagging conservatory roof can be caused by structural issues or the weight of accumulated snow and debris. This can lead to further damage and leaks if not addressed promptly.

    7. Blocked Gutters and Downpipes

    Conservatories often have their own guttering systems. If these gutters and downpipes become blocked with leaves, dirt, and debris, water can overflow and cause leaks or water damage to the roof and walls of the conservatory.

    8. Seals and Flashing Deterioration

    The seals and flashing around a conservatory roof can deteriorate over time due to weather exposure. This can lead to gaps and potential water ingress points.

    9. Noise

    Certain roofing materials, especially polycarbonate, can be noisy during rain or hailstorms. This can be a significant annoyance, especially if the conservatory is used as a living space.

    10. Algae and Moss Growth

    If the conservatory roof is shaded or has poor drainage, it can become a breeding ground for algae, moss, and lichen. This not only looks unsightly but can also damage roofing materials over time.

    11. Structural Movement

    Conservatories, particularly those attached to older buildings, can suffer from structural movement. This can cause misalignment of the roof panels and seals, leading to leaks and other issues.

    12. Difficulty in Repairs

    Conservatory roofs can be challenging to repair due to their design and materials. Finding matching materials and ensuring proper sealing can be problematic, especially for older conservatories with discontinued products.

    Why is maintaining conservatory roofs important?

    Addressing these roofing problems typically involves regular maintenance, such as cleaning gutters, inspecting seals, and replacing damaged panels. Upgrading insulation and ventilation can also help mitigate issues with condensation and temperature extremes. For persistent or severe problems, consulting a professional roofing specialist with experience in conservatories is recommended.

    Kalvin replaced my kitchen guttering, cleaned my house gutters ,cleaned the valleys and repointed then. It was a first rate job, and everything was left clean and tidy. Kalvin and his assistant James were very polite and hard working.I have no hesitation in recommending AAA Development.

    Highly recommend this company. I was flooded out last weekend, from three leaks on my roof. Within minutes of contacting the owner of the company a time was arranged to give me a quote. The quote was very competitive, and they fitted me in the same day. The work's now been completed to a very high standard, and is fully guaranteed. I was so happy with the service provided that they went ahead and power cleaned my very dirty Indian slate yard, which has now been restored to being like new. Friendly, yet very professional, I'll definitely be using this company again. Thank you Mr. Mcwilliams and team. Your's, a very happy client.

    I see Mr mc Williams formally of mcs roofing has turned up at aaa developments. While he was mcs he did a roof renewal on my property . He renewed a small run of lead flashing (approx 3mtrs max) ,which he maintained was not part of the original quote that In it's self cost£350 for approx. 2 /3 labour. The flashing itself cost around £50 which they used around 1/3..yet he maintained it cost £200 plus.The rest disappeared. The pointing of the ridge tiles was very poor quality. On completion I had been advised by others to retain a small portion (£100)til it rained at that point he became extremely aggressive so I paid in full. 2years later (still under guarantee) 3/4 slates blew off.So I contacted him several times each time he said he would take a look,but now he does not reply.So it seems I will have To go elsewhere .One month later,despite posting saying they would help, I have not been contacted at all.Obviously their reply was just a stock answer to whatever problem posted.

    Kevin and his lads came out today to replace some rotten roof felt on my roof even though it was super windy, did a great job and even lay a piece of plastic across the lawn to prevent damage as its so wet. Would definitely recommend.

    Messaged Kevin to sort out roofing and guttering problems. He quickly went out to look at the problem and gave me a quote on the same day. I then booked the job in with him. He arranged for scaffolding to go up and all works needed to proceed including cement the chimney and sort the problem. He kept me movement and even worked in a cloudy day. After he finished the job, then clean everywhere no rubbish left in our house and backyard. His team are always nice and answered my questions and solved all the issues I had. We are happy with the job, I am particularly grateful to Kevin to manage without any issues. Well done mate!!

    He has done a couple of roofing jobs for my mum who lived in Accrington. She is very happy with his work. The last job was delayed due recurrent inclement weather but he kept calling in to see if the roof was safe to work on and kept my mum informed of each attempt to access the roof. She would definitely use him again..
