Been renovating a conservatory latter part of the Summer and on the ramp down but missed this problem until now and hoping you can help.
The roof ribs are solid but was originally built without end caps or guttering. Now corrected but the water has been dripping onto the end grain and slowly creeping up the internal timber which is now damp for maybe 100mm … shows that black damp stain that comes with water.
I can cover it to let it dry, no problem. But could use some idea what to seal it with after it dries out which I guess will be some weeks.
Ideas how to seal fully with a solid product would be really welcome as I’m struggling against the weather to finish things off. Cheers
I’ve attached a couple of photos of the external end grain and showing the water problem. And also the internal impact.
