Tile line too high over the flat roof

Guys,

We're almost complete on replacing the tiles on our roof but I'm a little concerned about the work done. In the areas where the pitch roof meets the flat roof, the tile line ends at least 15 cm above the flat section and in some places up to 20 cm. Best case, for me it's a little unsightly, the old roof tile line actually ended at the flat section (you can see the marks left in the felt from the old tile in one of the attached image). I can see the gap from a few locations on the ground, and as the tiles are red, and the felt is black, it stands out clearly. Worse case, should we be worried about the wind potentially blowing rainwater back up the roof?

Also, does anyone know if I should be talking to building control?

I've attached some images.

Thanks for any advice,

Steve.

The tiles are not supposed to sit on the roof.

Personally i think that looks like a tidy job.

If the felt is far enough under the tiles there will be no problem.

Nothing to do with building control.

No probs with the job overall and BC won't give a hoot.

My only criticism is that in the centre image there appears to be a rather large gauge between courses at the narrow verge section near the bottom.

Thanks for the two positive responses and good spot on the large gauge on the narrow verge. I didn't notice it, and now I can't stop noticing it.

The course above is short and the one below is long and I know exactly the reason for it and it is redeemable.

The felt and ply upstand has prevented him from fitting this particular course tile batten to gauge, but only where the upstand interferes. What he should have done is cut the tile batten and staggered it down but only where the upstand ends.

This would have meant one more sloping tile cut on the short course.
