A few weeks ago I noticed that I had a few slate tiles missing off my roof. I contacted loads of roofers and all but one are too busy to replace them. The one roofer who said he can do it said that he can't replace them until the rain stops, that was 2 weeks ago and it hasnt stopped raining since. Ive just looked at the weather forecast for the next five days, and guess what, more rain. In the meantime, Ive developed a huge damp patch in the corner of the bedroom where the slates are missing. Im becoming anxious that Im going to have a long term problem with the damp / plaster damage unless it slates are replace soon.
I know there is nothing I can do to stop the rain, and a wet roof is a dangerous roof, but surely in a country that rains on average half the days of the year, rain should stop a roofer from replacing tiles.
Can anyone give any advice?
