Slate tile roof with internal guttering waterproofing in Christchurch

From when this substantial home was built, the internal guttering levels were set incorrectly of which caused not enough fall for rainwater to flow away in a heavy rain storm situation.

This in effect caused the rainwater to dissipate back under slate tiles into the internal roof cavity.

For the first 3 years after the house construction had been completed, the very durable roof lining paper that was installed, managed to hold the rainwater out, however, as photo(s) shows the deteriorated roof lining paper finally perished. Rainwater then entered into the internal roof cavity and onto internal ceiling Gib liner, then penetrating through into the below bedroom. After initial investigations, we found the source of the problem, removing slate tiles, installing galvanised sheeting to roof joist, laid existing butynol liner over top, sealed, re-installed slate roof tiling.
