Some common misconceptions about roof repair work

My roof leaks - do I need a new one?
Most roofs can be fixed up by an experienced roof tiler

I’ve been told my tiles are porous? What can I do?
Your concrete tiles are not porous enough to leak by themselves. Leaking is usually caused by something more than just the tiles, say, incorrect fitting, cracked tiles or leaking pointing
