    There is a modest 'kick' on these we installed but we try and mitigate any lifting by using the grinder and common sense.

    Broad flat (Marley Modern etc) tiles are the worst offenders though, so extra care should be taken.

    Thats a lovely job.

    I really like the feature brickwork corners. Are the walls going to be rendered -if so that would set the corners off really well.

    The stepped down roof leading to the leanto on the roof has been done very neatly, despite the awkward roof changes -when the set out is done wrongly, these tricky abutments can end up looking like a dogs dinner.......

    Should there be a small flashing under each tile rather than a single long one under all 3 tiles?

    I went in this morning to have a view of couple of other same houses and although not perfect, the tiling there is much much much better and there is hardly any lift at all..... I will just say “I want that one” in the spirit of Little Britain famous quote.

    Presume the housebuilder is NHBC registered. Put your complaint in writing to the builder and keep a copy. If the builder won't do anything about it take it up with NHBC.
