When the wind comes from a certain direction my conservatory roof leaks. . Is there some substance I could use (similar to putty?) to stop the leak?

share|improve this question
Can you describe the roof structure / materials? Have you located the source of the leak? Where do you intend to place this patch? – BMitch Sep 15 '13 at 12:25
Pretty old fashioned, but it is for a conservatory: Oakum? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakum – Wayfaring Stranger Sep 15 '13 at 19:36
