Small water ingress issue

Recommended Posts

Kicking myself as I've got a small leak and looking for ideas to overcome.

Water is running down the aluminium flashing and soakers and getting behind the render. It is then presenting inside under the roof terrace.

I think the only non destructive option is a decent squirt of exterior sealant between trim and render bead. But I'm reluctant to be ever reliant on a bit of goo for long term watertight integrity.

 

Any great ideas? 
Or recommendations for best exterior sealant?

 

Cheers

Do you have any of the aluminium left over, looks like it needs some sort of deflection away from wall . You could slot it under your existing aluminium and bend it round and away from wall.

 A piece like this if you can get it behind both bits of flashing..

Some sealer will be needed as well I think.

I agree with James about changes.  If you don't get the water from the flashing into the gutter even if you seal it it will run down render and stain.

I think I'm going to try to get a small soaker in behind the other soakers and bring it out in front of the render. 

Won't look as crisp as it does now but function over form it must be.

 

@nod roof covering is Tapco slates, chosen for their suitability for low pitch. They were a breeze to lay, zero wastage and unless you're up close most people have no idea they aren't real slates.

Not nearly the abomination I was fearing.

 

Trimmed out a piece of render. God bless thy multitool

Beauty of having 200mm EPS under the render. Banged the trim right in

Finally slap a bit of silicone render in the gap behind

I would much rather that the bottom of the bottom soaker was cut plumb
