The felt under the tiles of our 1958 built house no longer reaches to the guttering as a resut of 50 years of aging. If there was a leak due to a broken tile water would run down the felt and drip into the space behind the fascia board rather than into the guttering.

I've been told there is a product specifically to repair this problem - can someone tell me what it is called?

Or other good ways to fix this without the need to remove large areas of tile and battens to fix new felt!

Many thanks.

Sounds like you need a felt support tray

Hi,

You can either use a felt support tray or strip back the first couple of rows of tiles and use some 450mm wide plastic dpc and lap that into the gutter. Make sure you have at least 300mm lap from the original felt over the top of the DPC
