We had a phone call a few weeks ago regarding a leaking tile roof. Water was entering the roof cavity in several places and we were asked to investigate this further.
Water was entering from:
- Broken roof tiles
- Leaf and plant filled gutters, causing water to overflow the gutters and enter the roof cavity
- Cracks in ridge capping mortar
- Slipped valley tiles causing water to not be able to flow down the valley iron
We undertook the following works to ensure that the roof would be leak free and maintenance free:
1.Removed valley tiles. Cleaned debris from valley. Re-sealed existing valley flashing at overlaps. Installed valley seal to both sides of the valley flashing preventing water overflowing the valley. Reinstated valley tiles including any new tiles. Install valley tiles clips to prevent tiles slipping into the valley.
2.Re-pointed all ridge and barge tiles with Shieldcoat Flexible Pointing Mortar including 10 year guarantee.
3.Replaced approximately 15 broken/cracked tiles across roof.
4.Reseal tv anchor points and skylight
5.Cleaned roof gutters of leaf debris and plant growth
