Slipping roof panels

Postby Hodko » Thu Jul 09, 2009 11:25 pm

Hi - a couple of the roof panels on my conservatory have started to slip - looking at the end caps, they are nothing more than a clip pushed into the roof bars to hold the PVC end piece.

I need an end cap which will screw into the roof bar - can anyone recommend a company which would supply something like this - I've trolled the internet with no luck

There must be measn of securing the panels not just the end caps. Have you tried talking to the supplier / manufacturer of the conservatory?

They're not a great deal of help - it's a few years old so they've had their money from me. There idea of help is to send a man in a van round with a big piece of wood to bang the panel back into place.

Lasts a few weeks then goes again

Nextdoor neighbour has just simple pieces of metal screwed into the end of the roof bars which match the profile of the bar - they would be ideal

With all the conservatory compaines around I didn't think it would be this difficult to find a solution ! :?
