    Can anyone help please? For the last couple of months or so there has been a banging noise coming from our conservatory. It sounds like someone is throwing a lump of mud at the window! It's completely random and can happen at any time of day (usually 5 or 6 times a day). Its very puzzling and seems to be coming from the lower right hand corner. The conservatory is roughly 12x7.5ft, UPVC with a dwarf wall, about 5years ago we had the polycarbonate roof replaced with a 'blue' glass one (waste of money) but the noise is not coming from the roof. It's getting rather worrying to be honest. There is no fixed heating in there just a portable oil fired radiator that is on a frost setting. Thanks.

    Is the structure solid enough to support the roof? Maybe it’s associated noise?

    We were told it would be, it's only started over the last couple of months and the roof has been on for about 5years.

    Any photos available? Anything else in the corner - drains perhaps?

    Is it a dark wood grain foil externally?
