A few tiles on this roof were cracked and the breathable membrane was thorn allowing rain water into the house. Repairmyhome.ie stripped back the area in question, checked the timber rafters carefully for any signs of decay or weakness and strengthened them where required, treating the effected timbers with organic solvents.
The next step was to remove the roofing felt as it was to far gone to patch, the new roof felt must be installed to ensure that water/ moisture will make its way to the gutters. Its also extremely important that ventilation is maintained under need the felt, with a clear passage to the ventilated eaves, ensuring that the roof timbers remain free from moisture.

Once the Roofing membrane is installed, new battens are placed on top to secure the felt and give the tiles/ slates fixing. The slate/tiles are then reinstated or matched & integrated with new (or reclaimed), ensure that the appearance is retained.
Often times old roofing slate/ tile fixings have corroded but the case shown it was more likely a weather event that caused a few to move, exposing the felt to the elements and over time it failed.
