    Hi we have a 1920's house and have discovered that the leaded roof of the front bay window has been leaking. The interior plasterboarding underneath has become damp so we've removed the whole lot to understand the extent of the problem.

    Not sure whether the lead has cracked, or whether water is getting in via the flashing. The roof does accumulate a pool of sitting water after a rainstorm. Can't afford to have the whole roof replaced but wondering if there are any products which can be applied which will seal the roof? Saw the following yesterday but have no idea if this is suitable. Grateful for any advice.
