The call out to this property was prompted by the client's concern over a newly-installed roof that was leaking profusely. Upon inspection, it was immediately clear that the cause of the issue was the improper tiles used by the builder for the roof pitch, which in this case, was 12 degrees. To address this issue, I recommended a complete replacement of the roof using the appropriate tiles suited for the given pitch. In addition, the correct type of roofing membrane had to be utilised.
If this problem wasn't addressed promptly, it risked causing severe internal damage. Rotten wood and crumbling plasterboard ceilings would not only damage the internal walls and floors, but the client's valuable furniture was also at risk.
