Hi,
I am in need of a bit of advice, the other month our front gable of our 1930’s semi blew in after some very strong winds. We got a roofer in to fix/replace the front. He put up a UPVC facial to replace the previous brick one, this seemed to be ok, however, over the following few days we had some bad rain storms and water had come into the front and dripped down into the bedroom. The roofer came back and placed some beading to correct this, however, water still appears to be gathering inside not so much now, but I am wondering what to do now, the roofer said he can spray some foam to seal it further but I’m not too convinced. I am at a bit of a loss as to what to do next.

Do you have any photo's?
Ideally some of the damage after the first storm and some of the repair.
In order to advise it would help to see exactly what you are up against!

I'd be concerned about a roofer that suggests "spraying foam" to cure a leak.
