The house to the left of mine was re-roofed at some point (before we moved in 36 years ago).

It has a join in the roof that wasn’t done well.

I have conventional slate he has tiles.

Recently I have had some roof work done. Roofer wen down the joins both front and rear. Repaired any flash band tears and Acrypol over the top to give it a good seal.

There is a small leak in the join on the front, water leaking on to the wood and brick (seen this in the loft space).

Roofer says only remedy is to put a valley in. Neighbour doesn’t want this as he says it may cause his roof to leak.

Anyone got any recommendation to what we can do?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Pictures to follow.

Tape is no good, you need a bonding gutter fitted.
Your roofer is right, and it wont leak.

Tell your neighbour it needs doing properly and charge him half the cost.

^ this. If the joint has been botched, as it sounds, a properly detailed valley is the only way to sort it.

As already mentioned it needs a bonding gutter 100%
And like Cotswold has said I'd be hitting your neighbor for half the cost.

Thanks for the replies guys.

The neighbor is not wanting the work done that's the problem. He's saying his side is ok and doesn't want us ripping up his tiles because it could make his roof leak.

Check your title deeds to see if they say anything about liability for the roof covering, if it's in your favour it might be the wee push he needs to agree to the work.

you got the two flue terminals and a v. high tile on one side and a low slate on the other.
you need an v. good roofer to sort that join.
you might need a high profile bonding gutter.
thers a fixmy roofer on youtube who does demos but I think he does wet bonding gutters, have a look.
iif the other guys property is damaging your property he has to let you do repairs. call BCO
