conservatory roof seal

Postby drmawby » Fri Jul 15, 2011 3:13 pm

Hi. I have removed the black seal from a one side of a UPVC pane in my conservatory roof in order to push it back into place after it slipped down. The seal easily peeled out from the inside, but now I can't get it back in. Any advice would be appreciated.

Simply Build It

I assume you have a polycarb panel roof.So what you need to do is remove the top capping first and remove the panel.
Take the end cap off by unscrewing the screw,Then with a flat screwdriver ease the cap off it clips in so its quite easy to remove.
Then remove the panel and refit the seal,and refit the panel.You are best to use a hammer and a block of wood to put the capping back.
