Like the rest of your property, a conservatory won’t last forever without a little maintenance and refurbishment over time. A well built uPVC conservatory is likely to last between 20 and 25 years. A wooden conservatory generally lasts longer but demands much more maintenance. If your conservatory is more than 20 years old, then it is important to be aware of the signs indicating it’s in need of conservatory roof upgrade. The roof of your conservatory is a fundamental aspect of the design and structure and plays a huge role in keeping your home warm and free from leaks, draughs or condensation. Knowing when its time for a conservatory roof upgrade is not always obvious, but vital to get fixed before the problem worsens. So, here is some advice on what to look out for.
