Flashing on new conservatory roof

Post by Dan111 » Sat Apr 20, 2019 4:45 pm

Hi, I just had a new glass roof installed on my conservatory and would like some advice / opinions on the flashing. I'm no expert, but to me it doesn't look right. There are gaps where the lead goes over the plastic, it comes further onto the glass than I would expect it to, and it just looks sloppy. Does it need to come that far down onto the glass? My main concern is the gaps. With heavy wind and rain, could that cause an issue? Thanks.

It's not "pretty" but will do the job (the new glass will have a seal all around where it meets the UPVC.)
