Repair of a conservatory
I had a conservatory rebuilt on existing walls, the glass roof was replaced with plastic sheeting which was cut too short, and has leaked under the guttering. The walls inside are covered in mould as the plaster board is wet, do I need a general builder or a specialist in conservatories, it is more like an oblong room with windows and patio doors. Many thanks
This is a shabby job! You need to get the original contractor back to put it right. If they refuse get hold of Trading Standards and get them involved. Anyone who does work like this should be prosecuted - unless they put irtysh right.

Depending on how short the poly roof has been cut, you could either cut in new poly sections joining together with H section trim or if only an inch or so short you may be able to place an L shaped trim under the end of the poly leading into the guttering, on both these suggestions they will be visible alternatively you could replace all of the poly roof sheets, with regards to the walling my advice would be to remove and replace any water damaged areas with new
