    We have a leak and invited a roofer to repair who quickly recommended changing the flashing around the chimney stack. It has improved but continues to rain in but the roofer has advised he can't identify the source of the leak even though we have made some suggestions. Should it be so hard to find? The leak is all around the stack.

    On average, how long are newly installed modern roofs expected to last? Does it depend much on the quality/type or is the life expectancy fairly similar across the board?

    Hi a roofer has replaced a broken ridge tile and said fitted a lead soaker, I expected to see this but all I can see is cement. Is there anyway to tell if it has been fitted?

    I've got a largish terrace which has an asphalt roof, asphalt type boiled up from blocks in tar boiler. Presently part covered in GRP tiles. Tiles and asphalt have moved with heat and it looks very untidy. Terrace is laid over solid beam and block first floor so area needds to be water tight. Can tiles be removed and asphalt replced or is it better to remove both and relay with something else.

    How long does the timber below roof shingles tend to last? Does it depend on the type of wood? And if so, could you give me an idea of what applies to each option? What are the pros and cons of each type of underlaying timber for roof shingles? Thanks for your time!

    How long does it take to install solar tiles? Are they affordable? Can I install them by myself and if so when I purchase them from? If not, how long might it take to have a roofer install these tiles on my roof? Also, how do solar tiles connect to my house’s energy system?

    My neighbour has a new roof, they have not said how they were joining the 2 roofs, or asked any permission to move our tiles, when I looked up and asked why they had a divider installed wonky / top bowing towards our roof, if I could add a pic I could show you, they argued my roof tiles aren't straight, but before they removed them roof was fine, it will be the only roof I have seen without a straight line down, can they do this?

    I have old wooden gutters on my property. They are at a point where most would simply have them replaced, however, they’re extremely important to me as it's a family home and my grandfather built them by himself sixty years ago. So I am willing to pay more than most would to preserve these gutters as long as possible. What efforts can I have, even radical efforts to keep these gutters going for at least another say ten to fifteen years? At what point, do worn down gutters become a danger?
