Well this morning I waited for the tank guy to delivery my water tank. While I was doing so I thought I would trim the tree branches hanging over the fence line along the garage side. I then took a look behind be at the gutter to see how I would attach the gutter leaf guards. To my suprise, there were a roof tile missing. And the tile next to it, had been crcked and fixed up with silicon.
Then remembering back to the last big rain fall we had, I noticed that problem with water running over the eaves. I realised it was the water running off the roof into the roof cavity and running off the eaves.
I rang the SS to his suprise also, he thought that, when the tiler came around to replace the cracked tile above the family area, he must have taken this one and not covered it up. I asked if the water that came in would damage anything. His defense is that it would dry out. Yes it would dry out, but would leave things damp and mould could form. I will keep this area monitored, if the walls start to change shape or colour. They will coming back to rip it up and replace it.
So I covered this area with left over sarking, luckily I did we had a brief shower last night. I hope it held during the rain.
