Looks like it's been a wet week over there - we got it the news here.

Good luck with it all, Mick.  :beers:

Thanks, George, but we've had 2 weeks of persistent rain and other folks have had it worse.
Dry night last night and this morning but rain is due again this afternoon and into tomorrow ::) :rain:

Huzzah!
Finally got the above mentioned chappie round and he can get a couple of his guys to me next week. He appears to know his stuff and talked me through what was needed. All access is from the outside so no dismantling required, and all for the cost of an N gauge loco :)

Well - it took 2 chaps an hour. They told me of a couple of issues where sealant strip had perished, the top capping with the finials needed sealing and one 'rib' had lifted enough to get fingers underneath but all is now sealed and, hopefully, no more leaks. As there is no rain forecast for at least a week I'll not know for a while but at least it will allow the sealant to set.
Time will tell.

Relieved professionals have had a go at it, but a spell of bad weather will be the true test :hmmm:

Glad to hear it's fixed. Spray a hosepipe on the roof to test it?

Argggh. One of those. Thank heavens I'm allergic to gardening.

And I pay to have the car washed, by the way.

Great to hear you have found a tradesman willing to sort it out for you, fingers crossed you got it resolved, I have the same annoying issue with a lean too I built onto the side of an outhouse to act as a workshop..... continues to leak no matter what I try, though I have got it down to one small area now as oppose to the entire lengh!  I feel your pain!

Glad to hear the source of the leak has been found. It would have been much worse if the workmen came down off the roof and told you they couldn't see anything obvious.

That occurred to me a couple of hours ago and might give it a try early next week when the sealant should have cured off. :thankyousign:
