New Conservatory Roof: Day 2Posted: March 18, 2014
Whilst we were out they managed to install some of the new glass roof panels, but further work was disrupted by a sudden and violent thunderstorm. The wind was so strong that it moved some of the uPVC panels that were being stored on the lawn, and when we returned home at 3.30pm the workmen were trying – without a great deal of success – to rig a tarpaulin over the girder framework for the new conservatory roof. They even used rolls of lead flashing to weigh down the ropes they were trying to use to hold the tarpaulin in place, but these were not heavy enough to do the job. In the end they managed to fix the tarpaulin in place using a combination of weights, large clips, and ropes … but if there is another storm it is very likely that the tarpaulin will be blown away.
By the time the workmen left at 4.15pm, the conservatory looked like this:
Assuming that the weather does not get any worse, we expect that the rest of the glass roof panels will be installed tomorrow.
