    I have had some slate tiles fall from my roof recently due to weather and general ageing. Some of the tiles are barely damaged so would be reusable and I will find some replacement for any others. What would I need to set the slates back on the roof most effectively? Would it usually be by using cement or some other adhesives to keep them in place correctly? I would like to resolve this myself if possible.

    Hello, I have no lead flashing on my artificial slate roof, but have been told there are lead soakers. My local roofer says lead flashing isn’t a requirement for this roof type. Does anyone know if I should have lead flashing on my roof? I have some concern that some leaks on a ceiling-adjacent wall could be related to this, or perhaps the soakers aren’t effective enough. Any info would be appreciated – thanks Gordon
