    Back to the original post...


    We've have some horrific weather (like many others) and for the 1st time, weve had a leeak.

    We saw staining on the ceiling (upstairs landing) - area getting larger

    I got into the loft - its very tricky access wise, but there are many damp spots on the loft insulation and along beams etc

    I cant see that part of the roof from outside unfortunately but it seems obvious that water has been forced through somehow (torrential rain & gale force winds) - we have tiles (not slates) on the roof.

    Lived there for 10 years with no problems - clearly cause by the recent weather.

    Can I ring my insurance company - never needed to call them out before so really unsure what to say et

    Many thanks
