    Hi Roofers,
    I had my roof repaired, as my roof is orginal roof meaning no felt. It is slated roof.

    I had my velux fitted couple of years ago and now i have this leak above the velux window and the water is coming into the upstairs landing.

    I had aother leak back of the annexe , water coming into the cavity, as my kitchen door and kitchen window had water . I could not see any sign of damage to the lead or any crack in the lead. However fingers crossed, i have flash band the lead gutter and i applied the acropyl for extra protection until good weather and replace it with lead or take the stone gutters out and replace it with facia and gutter..

    I will need to check, if it leaks, when it rains back of my house where i have flasband the stone lead guttter +acropyl .

    I paid the roofer couple of hundred pounds and he came 3 times already and now he is saying you need to get another roofer, as i have been 3 times and i am losing money, but he colud not sort out the leak, where it is coming from.This is the leak near the velux window.

    When I see all that mastic it tells me somebody doesn't know what they are doing. Have you insulated under that plaster board.

    agree, especially as the slates masticed don't need it, assuming the headlap is correct. They shouldn't need masticing if the roof is correct. looking at the first picture it seem the watter is emanating from the abutment to the right and spreading along the purlin from there. what is to the right of the picture on the outside.
    could be anywhere though and running down until it finds gaps around the velux

    Thankyou for your replies.

    Loft was made back in year 2000 and i think it was not much insulated, as in them years thye just used fibreglass, as when open up the storage near the eaves it had fibreglass insulation.

    When the joiner replaced the Velux window, he just stuffed fibreglass around the new velux window fitted few years ago.

    Where i named the picture before the repair, it was leaking in the loft stair landing and the loft room, since the roofer replace the few slate and repaired water has now stopped coming into the loft room, but it is still coming in to the loft stair landing from the Purlins and running down and dripping on to the landing wall.

    The first picture you had a look this is stopped leaking, since he reapired the slate, but now the water coming from the 2nd picture 20151116_185712.jpg .

    I applied the flash band to the stone lead gutter and i applied the acropyl my self, as when i call few roofers from safetraders, they were going to apply this and they were just going to do the annexe only, as they said thye had some left over from another job, so i told them i will let you know, as i did not trust them. so i thought i might as do it myself, as thye wanted £375.00.
