    I recently bought a house and was very comfortable to have such a nice house. But, one day rain started and then only i got to know that their are internal outlets on the roof which are getting leaked heavily. So, i need to ask what solution can I do to fix it?
    Also, I got to know that there are not much leaf guards on the outlet. Please let me know the solution as soon as possible.

    The solution to fix it is to have the roof re-done properly (eg using a single-layer finish) and installing falls to discharge to external gutters and downpipes.

    If you attempt to seal/repair the current arrangement, you will have a permanent on-going problem.

    Yes tony, I have contacted the SBR contractors to repair my roof but it doesn't look good when I though what if problem may not be solved properly. So, I burned my bucks and emptied my pocket for this month and changed my roof entirely.
