If you do not have the plastic underlay beneath the tile, you will see light coming through as all joints and grooves do not marry 100% with each other, so this is not a problem. If however you see light coming through somewhere running horizontal to the slope of the roof, this is usually indicative of a broken tile or roof sheet. Remember though, should you have a roof that requires roof nails to stay in place, light coming through these roof should normally be checked

Remember that a leak a leak can form anywhere from above the point of the leak and in and around the origin of leak. As the water runs down the inside of the tile, it eventually hits a batton or a beam, where it ultimately stops, collects into droplets and the drops to the ceiling, giving the perception that the leak is starting there.

This is due to rising dampness. Usually there is a plastic damp coursing installed to prevent this when the house is originally built, but over the years as we build on our properties and install paving etc. our ground level is raised over this damp coursing. Usually very tough to battle, but sometimes can be fixed by specialised Damproofing methods

A lot of the times this is as a result of either the bath sealant needing to be re-done, or the tile grouting has lost its waterproofing properties. This is easily fixed with a specialised liquid silicone seal NB: Don’t be fooled by unscrupulous companies who will charge obscene amounts to replace tiles when this is not the problem

This is a type of mould usually caused by the moisture of either your breath, cooking or the steam from bathrooms. Since hot air rises, it settles on the ceiling making the ceiling wet and warm and a perfect breeding ground for Mould (Fun fact: you will see where your ceiling level runs as the mould will grow at the highest point usually).

A good wash with a strong solution of Jik water (Remember Gloves) usually does the trick and remember the next time you paint the ceiling, add an anti-fungicide to the paint.
