Following the recent storms/heavy snow, my conservatory roof now leaks a bit when it rains.

Picture of the roof attached a few drops seem to come from here and there along the brown "spoke" highlighted in red.

I have no idea how these roofs are put together - is there a rubber sealing strip between the "spoke" and the transparent plastic panel? Can it be accessed/replaced?

I don't really want to go squirting silicone into the joint, as friends have suggested :eek:

a picture from outside may give a clue as there is no clue from the inside picture
check it hasn't simply slid down a bit

Okily dokily... took a couple of snaps. I wasn't really sure what part you meant would slide down, but some of the trim clearly had! Is that what you meant?


Anyway, I gently tapped the bits which were sticking out back up till they were flush… do you think that was the problem?


I’ve also included a pic of the top bit, where the sliding bits (wish I knew the proper names for what I’m talking about :notworthy: ) go into the top bit of the roof. Does that look like it might be a problem to you as well?


Thanks so much for your help :D
