Customer Question

I have a persistent problem..I have rain coming between the render and outside..this falls into my lounge via the bay window. I have had the render stripped and replaced I have a new roof put on and still I have the leak. We did a water test with the hose pipe and it seemed the sealant round upstairs windows could be the problem..this was redone...still have the leak...any suggestions..I'm at the end of my tether.

Hi,

that product is no good if I don't know where the leak is...it is not the window..it has been completely sealed and this morning they re sealed again to appease me although there were no gaps or missing areas..I checked myself.

is there a particular trouble shooter , a surveyor of some kind or the guy other builders go to if there is a problem ,..a technical expert..I don't know..someone I can contact.

and...is that product availability in the uk for future reference

thanks

Hi, thanks but it is unlikely they will come to me..Wirral is on the other side of the river Mersey.

i need someone in Liverpool. Can you do some research. I have had five roofing firms..I have a complete new roof.

it is not the roof.

i need an expert in problem solving ..I have searched myself and can't find what I need..I may be searching with the wrong key words...you, being in the know..should be able to find someone.

you are my last resort.

thankyou

Thank you for your patience.
