roof leak or soakers

Postby colin751 » Sun Nov 21, 2010 8:34 pm

hello can anyone help,
we have a slate tile (5" x 8") roof which joins to our neighbours stone gable end.
the problem is that we have a leak coming through the join somewhere i think, it looks like its coming through from the top of the ridge as you can see the water going down the side of the wall under the join in the house.
we have used explanding foam filler, lime & cement & also used sealent strip in the join, we have also repointed the wall & chimney above the join.
I have been look on the web and it always comes back to maybe soakers, could anyone help or point me to a web site on how to fit with pictures.
