Leaky roof anyone?

I had to go into the loft today.  At this point you don’t need to know why I went into the loft (needed to get a suitcase) but you do need to know it’s been snowing quite a lot and it has settled on the roof.

While I was up in the freezing loft space I noticed something that shouldn’t be there.  You see there are things that shouldn’t be there that I know about; the spalling bricks on the chimney breast above Hannah’s room and the mouldy roof beams that you can’t miss as your head pops through the loft hatch.  I’m not sure it’s mould but it looks like mould.  And there are things that shouldn’t be there that I didn’t know about.

Should there be water on the inside of the roofing felt? 

I thought not. 

There were drips everywhere, sort of hanging from the roofing felt.  Condensation?  Leaky water?

Either way I’m not sure it’s right.

Simple and sweet. I’m thinking of starting another blog or five pretty soon, and I’ll definitely consider this theme. Keep ‘em coming!

Yeah, water should not be in the roofing felt. There must be something wrong with your roof if drips are all over. My neighbor once had a leaky roof, and so my husband helped them out in looking for someone who would fix their roof. Well, it's better to fix your roof ahead of time, than be sorry in the end.
