Simply Build It

Start at one end reaching over the end to remove the first sheet. You'll probably be able to reach the second as well.

Then put your ladder up inside the conservatory working through the space you've created to remove the next one etc etc until its all down.

Replace in reverse order.

I also need to do this. I cant find anywhere on the net that telss me where to start.
I have the poly carb panels in there already, but i dont know how to take them out so i can just replace them.
Do they slide out, lift out?

"Do they slide out, lift out?"

Cant see it from here and I'm afraid my crystal ball has been stolen. So purely on guesswork there will probably be some sort of capping which holds it into the frame which will be screwed in if its a timber conservatory.

Undo screws - removeing capping, take polycarb out. Work as per previous post from one end.
