    Gap between tiles on roof


    I live mid terrace my neighbours have had a new roof. The tiles are different to ours. When the scaffolding came down there is a uneven gap from ridge to gutter. My side has nothing to keep the tiles lifting and I’m worried about rain and the wind. What can I do

    "The join should be either covered with a new row of ridge tiles from gutter to existing ridge, or a secret valley under the join ."

    "There could be a bonding gutter underneath this is used when different tiles dont fit togther, pictures would help see this. If there is a bonding gutter you have no problem with rain or wind."

    "It’s probably a centre gutter they put in to separate the two roofs, it’s like a secret gutter not visible unless you know what you are looking for."

    "This is just the difference in Tiles. There should be a hidden bonding gutter in place so there's nothing to worry about."

    "make sure there is a roof divider between your roof and there's but by you saying the bottom row is uneven it's hard to say because it all should run inline"
