Conservatory replacement causing overwintering issues

Hope all goes well Dave, it's horrible having dust and disruption in your home...we have it here at present.
Our high performance sbs felt systems are far superior to any DIY fibre glass roof membranes but for a domestic property you should be ok...make sure you get the relevant paperwork for guarantee etc

Conservatory replacement causing overwintering issues

Bit of a disaster over the weekend. With the high winds and torrential rain, the tarp got damaged and let water in. First I knew about it was power tripped off on Sunday lunchtime :-o As I'm an ex-computer engineer, know how to fault find the electrics. so was up and running again in about 20 mins.

We were hoping to save the old ceiling as was artexed and matches the other half of the lounge, although it was budgeted for replacing them. I had to call them out Sunday afternoon, but was little they could do by then. They patched the tear, to prevent more water getting in, but the damage to the ceiling was done. Monday they completely reboarded the roof, Hurricane proofed the tarp, and all other work is being done from the inside with the ceiling removed. Essentially I now have a completely new roof.

Never known such a wet period, and doesn't look like is over yet.

It's a family run company called Deaves, that installed my mahogany windows and conservatory 32 years ago. The fact that a family run company 32 years ago, is still in business now, is a sign of their quality. Several members who were involved in my original work, are still working for them, so sound a good employer as well. The salesman, and surveyor remember my original work.

Roof been insulated with celotex type insulation, and believe it or not, they fibreglassed the roof on Thursday. We were in the centre of the low pressure and was a bit like the eye of a hurricane, sunny and calm, but could see the rain bearing clouds, to the south and east, but they stayed away. Lantern is due to be fitted on Monday :)

The electrician is not going to be happy. He cut all the holes out of the original ceiling, now they have removed it.
