Box Gutter Conservatory Roof Problems

design-your-own-conservatory_0.jpg

Conservatories can be a minefield when it comes to maintenance and keeping things dry and comfortable year-round. Many of us abandon the conservatory completely as soon as the weather turns a little colder or wetter, but it really need not be the case.

One maintenance job that many forget is clearing out the box gutters – and even when perfectly clear, it’s all-to-easy for box gutters on conservatories to leak into the room. Box gutter conservatory roof problems can be a thing of the past with proper conservatory water-proofing.

The insulation of a conservatory is done slightly differently to the insulation of any standard room in a house. Specialist insulation takes into consideration the unique needs of a conservatory and the necessity to keep it not just warm, but dry too.

Home Logic conservatory insulation is an insulation product entirely specialist to the needs of conservatories and works to completely water-proof the room even in the wettest and wildest of weather. Should a box gutter leak, the system will protect the interior from the moisture and damp completely with no compromise.

 

Box gutters are the most common form of drainage on residential conservatories, but are often troublesome for leaks: indoors and out! Requiring frequent cleaning and unblocking in order to rule out leaves and accumulated build-up of rubbish, dirt and grime, their maintenance is often frequent and can be time-consuming.

The source of a conservatory leak can often be a box gutter even after thorough cleaning because:

  • pin or rust holes in the gutter pan appear or.
  • the sealant between the gutter pan and drain corrodes.

This can unfortunately result in not just water passing into your conservatory, but dirty water.

Water-proofing your conservatory is probably not something you considered would need reinforcing after it’s build, but can be done with a solution that keeps you dry while regulating a serene and enjoyable environment that keeps the room a functional living space at all times.

Conservatory roof insulation was first developed by NASA for protecting equipment against the harsh cold environment of deep space – and whilst your conservatory hopefully won’t reach those same temperatures, it will be well protected regardless!

Other Conservatory Conundrums And How To Resolve Them

Conservatories can be troublesome to keep ambient as they need to be protected from the cold and the warm maintaining a comfortable temperature year-round. Therefore, any insulation product used on it must be adaptable and multi-functional to cover this.

Home Logic conservatory insulation is a multi-foil insulation unlike any other insulation product. It was first developed by NASA for protecting equipment against the harsh cold environment of deep space – and whilst your conservatory hopefully won’t reach those same temperatures, it will be well protected regardless!

The layering that makes up Home Logic conservatory insulation is a unique combination for ultimate performance. These layers are:

  • True Aluminium Foil – a layer of aluminium compound that has been proven in testing to reflect up to 95% of radiant energy
  • ThermoWadding Membrane – a layer of air pockets prevents further heat gain by conducting any further radiant energy within them
  • Metalised PolyFoil Barrier – a second metalised barrier layer protects any residual radiant energy from passing through
  • Vapour Control – even the most residual of moisture is blocked by this layer, which completely protects the conservatory within
  • ThermoWadding Membrane – a layer of air pockets beyond the final aluminium foil prevents any residual radiant energy from passing out of the room
  • True Aluminium Foil – a secondary aluminium layer blocks radiant energy from leaving the conservatory’s interior.

Get Rid Of Your Gutter Grips With The Help Of Home Logic!

With Home Logic conservatory insulation installed, you will still need box gutters or other guttering attached to drain your conservatory’s exterior, but need no longer worry about any leaks.

Of course, leaks aren’t the only type of moisture that’s often found inside conservatories: condensation is frequent, too.

This is reduced once Home Logic conservatory insulation has been installed, as the vapour control layer soaks up any residual moisture in the air and allows your conservatory to stay at a comfortable temperature even with a window or door slightly ajar (which may be necessary for ventilation purposes).

Home Logic insulations as a specific lightweight roofing system for conservatories should only be installed by qualified technicians.

Existing customers are very happy with their installation of Home Logic conservatory insulation. One of the reviews on TrustPilot says:

“We wanted our conservatory roof changed because it was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Well, what Home Logic have installed has already made a difference! We can have the french doors open for our cats to go out in the conservatory and we sit out there now without feeling cold. Thank you Home Logic.”
