Look for a crack in a tile, or a crack / missing cement in the ridge tiles. Water can travel a long way, so the best solution is to get inside the loft space when it is raining.

Where does the rubber membrane go when tiling a bathroom floor


tiles on wooden floors will always move and crack the grout/tiling cement
therefore the rubber membrane goes down first with out nails and then everything is laid on top
that way when the wooden floor moves , there is a water proof membrane to prevent the water from rotting the wood over time

I bought a maax shower base. i am going to intall a cement board on the wall, water proof it and then tile over it. The shower base has a flange that is 1/4'' thick. do i install the cement board on top of...


There are two ways that I would do it depending on the width of the ledge on top of shower base. If you have enouch room I would shim studs with strips of material thick enough to bring the surface out even with flange on shower base. Then I would put cement board(wonder board) on wall and over shower flange to set on top of shower base. Finish seams on wall board per manufacturers directions,Let seam filler dry then seal with thompsons water seal or equivalent sealer. Let that dry then tile on that grouting and sealing with quality caulk at joint between shower base and tile.
If ledge on shower base is not wide enough then I would place cement board directly to studs then use filler strips on face of shower base flange to bring two surfaces flush. Water seal let dry and tile again coming down over top of shower. Grout and caulk to finish. P.S. I would use a siliconized latex emulsifier to mix in with grout. It gives a better ware proof seal. Hope this helps you. Good luck and thank you.

Repair air leak on inflatable life vest


We used to use neoprene on the roofs of commercial buildings, if you have a patch of material, clean it with thinner, or gasoline, then contac cement it on, we had a special cement, but I think reg contac cement will work. If you don't have a patch, I'm sure you can find a piece on ebay or someplace. Rubber rafts use the same type of stuff, only they use Hypolon rubber, still gets glued together.

Water leak at rear back window to cloth roof . What is best sealant to use to glue roof to window that will flex when roof is retracted?


I recommend gasket sealant that you would use for a motor. It's flexible and relatively cheap so if it doesn't work you not out much. Other than that a good contact cement would probably work well.

Tile over a cracked cement floor


You can get a crack membrane to put over the cracks. First use a primer on the floor, this is a primer just for this application, then put membrane on top of primer. these products can be found at home depot or lowes or any tile store.Also do not use cheep thinset. the better thinset is more flexible and will absorb any movement. The cement board would not work as they will move or flex and cause the grout to crack and tile to loosen
