    The maintenance of your solarium should be annual or periodic. Problems can be avoided with a plan of regular maintenance, affair anticipation of the hardware lifespan, glazing, sealants, etc.

    Maintenance following degradation

    Infiltrations

    Obvious leaks? Water running down your head on the structure?
    You need to redo the sealants?

    We use the proper sealant for the need. There is no universal sealant that qualifies for any situation : only the proper one for aluminium, glass, wood, PVC, etc.

    Better choose the designated sealant for the surface we are treating

    Kneewalls, floors, underpinning, decay, etc.

    You don’t see the water coming in, but the floor, moldings, plaster, or grout is altered from its original consistence. There are ants, sagging of the materials. Solariums are unfortunately sometimes botched-up installation, ill conceived, disrespectful of the norms, or suffer basic neglect of the supplier.

    Happily, most of the time, it can all be rebuilt, corrected and improved, for a fraction of the cost of a replacement. We have thousands of examples and references.

    Roof and skylite repairs

    Damaged ceilings, springtime infiltration; the attachment of the greenhouse or skylite to the house is ill-prepared and poorly assembled.

    The structure is cold, weak, unadaptable with better glazing ?

    The structure is the most challenging part of the manufacturers. Many have attempted to it, but not always successfully.

    One has a good thermal barrier, but a weak waterproofing, another has a robust structure, but poor insulation, yet another as a classy style, but poor adaptability to proper glazing. Many have tested all sorts of recipes.

    For the major part of these misconceptions, there is a simple, efficient and affordable solution. We did put our hands to it for over 20 years and successfully.
