    What are green roofs? What are the pros and cons? Any other information about green roofing would also be helpful

    Asked by Elly on 12th Apr 2021

    My neighbour has just had a new roof but upon looking from the outside and inside, it doesn’t seem to have been finished off. I have masses of daylight coming through the gap and is now a wind trap. There is a gap of which I estimate to be about 5 cm between where our tiles finish and from what I can see there isn’t a bonding gutter either. It also looks like they have used some kind of foam on their side to keep the tiles in place and create a ‘seal’ for them but nothing on mine. My roof was sound before this and I would have thought that it would be the responsibility of the roofer/neighbour to ensure that my roof would be left in tact and not open to the elements. I do have pictures from Inside the loft.

    Why does a roof sag with time? Is there something that can be done about it??

    Asked by Patrick on 25th Feb 2021

    Hi, Having water ingress to upstairs box room via an air brick / vent from the roof. Looks like the roof lining material above the air brick is rotten or broken away and water is coming in around or through the tiles onto what seems to be just a tile on top of the air brick cavity hole. It is then soaking into the wall and entering the box room. There are also a couple of small punctures in the roof lining in that are but further back into the loft a little which also leak. It's almost like the tiles are having no effect. The air vent is troubling as it just has a tile as the top of the cavity ( is that normal?). Would we have to take all the tiles off and reline everything on that side of the roof or can just the bottom tiles and lining be replaced?

    I have just had a new slate roof, but no flashing has been added to the parapet and firewalls. The roofer insists that this is a separate issue and not part of the roof. The firewalls are still leaking and he insists they need to be rerendered at an extra cost. Are parapets not part of the roof?

    Hi. I live in a semi-detached house and share a roof with my neighbour. My neighbour has a new roof fitted and they replaced my tiles without asking me. They have used different tiles which appear to be a different colour than mine (orange). Again no-one has asked me about this. Also, there appears to be a massive gap now between the tiles on my roof and tiles on my next-door neighbours. What should I do??

    Asked by John on 2nd Feb 2021

    I am replacing my roof and want to use grey tiles instead of the brownish ones I currently have (semi detached property), can I do this?
