    Hi

    My mum had her conservatory roof replaced earlier this year as it was damaged by large hailstones, the other day I was checking the guttering when I noticed the flashing was all ripped and had been filled with clear silicone.

    Can anyone please advise if this is as much of a bodge as it looks ?

    It is a typical ex/con buckling failure. The lead flashing requires joints to work properly. These joints would typically overlap each side of the glazing bar up-stand.
    Usual rubbish from a clueless UPVC company.

    I assume the lead should have been replaced by the guys that replaced the roof? they also missed a few screws on the glazing bar
