Leaking roof

Hi I have come back to really bad flaking paint and worse still mould and mildew on the upstairs of my 3 bed dublex .
I have a flat platform on the roof that houses a defunct water heater, which is tiled but seems to be the source of the problem. Also have a corrugated asbestos type roof which seems intact but maybe a bit iffy around some edges. I obviously need to address the flat water heater area first and then maybe tackle the main roof on my semi detached villa.
Does anyone have any advice or approximate costings ?

Thanks

Jeff

Re: Leaking roof

Apart form the mould and mildew are there any other signs of water ingress? Mould and mildew are quite common in properties that have not been aired for a while.

Re: Leaking roof

Flaking paint is the other telltale sign. The locals are saying it was a particularly rainy winter here in Akbuk?

Re: Leaking roof

Hi Manxman the company I work for flat in Istanbul had damp from part of roof we called in an ustu who suggested SUTUT - WATER RESISTANT EXTERIOR PAINT which worked a treat it is mixed with water, but this usta mixed it with less water than advised by the manufacture and it poured like liquid plastic it worked...might be worth a try ...

Must agree with Ibo about mould normally due to high moisture lack of free flowing air or an airbrick .... problem seen in many Turkish homes....

Re: Leaking roof

Thank you all good replies and I will definitely look for the exterior paint. There is no evidence of actual water damage . Is the water soaking in to the walls and causing paint to flake and mildew to form or is the con census poor air flow? It's just that I've had this house 14 years and never seen this before. My other concern is that the problem is on the adjoining wall, where the neighbours have not been for about 3 years, they clad the outside and the inside of their house, wonder if we are being affected by their house being shut up for so long?

Before buying anything you need to find the leak (if there is one). Don't only look where you see damp, water travels not only above tiles but below them. If you're in a duplex, first looksee would be the drainage outlets on the roof.

Re: Leaking roof

A flat roof should automatically let the water run off to the drain.

Firstly, tap a few tiles to make sure they're actually bedded right, any hollow sounds means they've "dot & dabbed" them, four corners & a blob in the middle. I caught them doing that on my roof.
Secondly, a few buckets of water across the roof & see if any of that water hangs & doesn't head for the drain.
Thirdly, if you do any grouting up there, don't use the cheap stuff, it will just wash away. Get the gear that they use on swimming pools.

Finally...........what a great place to be, Akbuk, it don't get any better.
