slipped tile (job of the month)

slipped slates in e12 Write your post here.this months Job of the month is just a simple tile repair,   This slipped tile in Manor Park London E12   was carried out quite quickly as the client had checked the roof after strong winds.He told me it could of been the vibrations from low flying aircraft fromcity airportbu I was adamant it was the wind. I thought i would bring this into the spotlight as for such a small issue if left the damage can go beyond  causing issues with your undersarking felt  rotting rafters and eventually causing water to ingress  usually at the bottom of the roof once the water has deteriorated the roofing undersarking felt.

what flat roof should i choose

what are the difference in flat roofing technologies i hear a lot of people ask. is there a superior system. what is the difference betweensingle plyepdmand single ply pt or pte.  the difference betweentorch onbuilt up systems and asphalt mastic.  Is Fibreglass roof  better than felt  etc.
