-Accessed property and discovered water damaged wallpaper in lounge room
-Accessed ceiling space via panel in laundry
-Crawled to problem area directly above bookcase
-Discovered leak area is where the corrugated roof meets the tiled roof
-Found numerous points of timber and sheeting that appeared to be holding moisture
-Moisture build up around 50mm vent penetration through tile
-Did not see water drips whilst on site
-Returned and installed lead over flashing to replace soaker flashing
-Cleaned and silicone sealed lead vent penetration flashing, we found a crack in this lead flashing which we are sure would have allowed water entry
