Help Needed With Sloped Roof Leaking in Front Bedroom

Postby adamajones01955 » Sun Dec 10, 2017 1:35 am

I have just moved into a house with a slopped roof in front bedroom, I have had repair men out and they replaced ridge tiles but ceiling is still showing water ingress.

I did consider condensation but I have a dehumidifier in the room to rule that out.

I have had a look in loft and there is no insulation between wall and roof.

This always occurs during heavy rain.

Also the roof pictured also has a damp sealant on so surely it has to have a lot of water to penetrate? Please excuse photos had to shrink images to post.

Just wanted to get suggestions for next course of action? as I have lost faith in contractor that did previous work.

Thanks in advance.
