Lots of flies in your conservatory? It’s time to transform it with Projects4Roofing!

Posted by Clare Whitehall on Apr 15, 2022

We’re all too familiar with that black spec that keeps flying in and out of our view in the conservatory. 

Frantically clapping mid-air, making us boss-eyed and breathless as it camouflages itself amongst the furnishings!


Ahah, you’ve got it! You hold on tight, and a small smirk appears as your triumph. 

You open your hand to see your catch and a wave of disappointment washes over you as you realise FLY 1 - YOU 0.

There must be a better way to get the flies out of your conservatory.

Conservatory uses are endless and your place should be used for relaxing, entertaining or as an extension of your living space

But when you have too many flies in your conservatory how is that even possible? 

Projects4Roofing are here to help eliminate those pesky flies from your conservatory and restore it to its former glory.

(Disclaimer: no flies were hurt in the making of this blog!)

What are the causes of flies in a conservatory?

Flies are a common problem in conservatory environments fitted with early conservatory roofing materials.

A glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof was a popular choice for those who wanted to enjoy their conservatory and garden. 

However, it is often difficult to maintain these types of conservatory roofs as they are prone to leaks, condensation, and mould growth

This can cause major structural damage to your conservatory and ruin the interior of your home.

A leaking conservatory roof is likely to worsen mould growth and attract flies into your conservatory.

Mould growth is often due to high levels of moisture, which are caused by the condensation from cracks, leaks, or broken seals of your polycarbonate conservatory roof.

How to get rid of flies in a conservatory

As the weather gets warmer, of course, we want to start spending more time in our conservatory and enjoy the view.

But you don’t want to be unwinding with Fred & Flo Fly buzzing around your head!

Flies can be a major nuisance for humans and animals alike. Spreading diseases, contaminating food, and causing allergies. 

Just YUK!

So besides wanting to convert your conservatory roof, there are a few preventative measures you can take:

  • Conservatory screens
  • Use insecticides    
  • Fly Swatter/zapper
  • Fly Paper 

This goes without saying, but it’s also important to keep your conservatory clean and clear of clutter too. 

Flies are attracted to organic matter and as the temperature warms up, they look for spaces to lay eggs. 

These temporary measures will allow you to enjoy your conservatory for the meanwhile. So, let’s explore how you can have the conservatory of your dreams. 

Get the most out of your conservatory today

Whether you want an extra living area, a place for the grandchildren to play or just make your home feel more spacious.

Your conservatory should be all that you’ve dreamed of.

Conservatory roof replacement isn’t often the first thing you think about when it comes to conservatory maintenance. 

But a leaky conservatory roof can lead to major structural damage to your home and cost you tens of thousands in repairs. 

Convert your conservatory roof to a solid roof to enjoy a functional room. 

This will give you endless conservatory uses and allow you to enjoy it without all the worries of:

  • Leaking conservatory roof

A polycarbonate conservatory roof was a popular addition to many homes. The material is thin and lightweight, but unfortunately, is prone to cracks and leaks due to its lack of support and sealing.

  • Glare from the sun on hot summer days.

We all love the sun shining brightly, but it can be hard to see. A solid roof conservatory will remove that bothersome glare allowing you to work, play or relax.

  • Your conservatory is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter

With an insulated conservatory, enjoy your conservatory on a chilly winter's day or relish the warmth of a summer’s afternoon. With thermal technology and climatic control, your solid roof conservatory will be enjoyed all year round. 

Replace your conservatory roof to withstand the seasonal fluctuations and harsh elements of the UK climate and create a cosy space. 

Your newly insulated conservatory will give you comfort and joy all year round with multiple benefits and conservatory uses.

Plus, it will be a big fat win FLY 0 - YOU 100!
