Hi, I have a quite substantial drip sound on my back bedroom ceiling when it rains.

I've been up into the loft and there's no sign of leaking, the loft is covered in a deep layer of vermiculite insulation so any water that would drop on to that wouldn't make any noise.

I thought it was coming from the chimney so I've had cowls installed, but this hasn't fixed the issue.

I can feel the vibration of the drip when I put my hand on the ceiling. It's only in the back bedroom, I can't hear the drip in the front bedroom or when I'm in the loft.

I've had a roofing company inspect the roof and there were a couple of broken slates that they replaced but this hasn't fix the issue either. The gutters and downpipes are all in good condition and running well.

I'm lost as to what to do next!!!??

Yeah, and I can't hear it when I'm in the loft. I can't see any damp areas either.

Have you got a gas fire? could it be rain dripping down the chimney onto that after being blown through the cowl?

We here rain dripping onto the chimney cowl, in heavy rain, down in the living room where the gas fire is.
