    Hey all,

    I need to replace the silicone around a bedroom window as wind is whistling through the gaps where the existing sealant has come away. The only problem is that this window directly above the conservatory so I cant put ladders up.

    I was considering removing the internal beading and taking out the glass and leaning through with the sealant gun! Is there any better way and/or things I should look out for when removing the beading?

    Thanks,
    -NS

    That will be your cheapest method.
    As for beads it will depend on the type and make of the windows (hopefully they are internally beaded) A photo or 2 would help

    Thanks, I'll try and get a picture tonight. I know they are Profile 22 windows and are internal bead. Annoyingly, each window has a cross-bar in the middle meaning each window has two separate panes!

    I guess another option would be to remove one or two of the roof panels so I can put a ladder up. I'm not too sure what is involved in that tho.

    Avoid touching the roof panels. That would be alot more work!
    How are the fascias over the conservatory? If they need doing too it would make getting scaffolding in more worth while

    I climbed on my conservatory roof , used a board to spread weight to framework , stopped it sliding by using non slip matting stapled to underside and anchored it with a rope thrown over the ridge line and tied off.
    Enabled spray painting of wall around upper window.

    Take out the beading, deglaze and lean out to re-seal, that's your quickest and easiest option.
