    Dormer loft conversion completed in 2016 - Water leaking through flashing soon after. Loft company don't want to know. Any opinions on flashing quality would be much appreciated?

    You need to get an experienced builder/ roofer, to investigate.
    It shouldn’t be too much of a job.

    If you plan to persue through the courts, first thing, let the original builder know, so they have an opportunity to rectify and faulty workmanship.

    Take photos of repair/reinstate flashing abutting new dormer conversion.

    Good luck

    It runs underneath new flashing from old tiles...
    Flashing always need to go under BOTH sides of any run off. Often it ends up in a formed plates underneath each tile (be it on one (old) side) and one solid on a a newly build one.

    Annoying and not easy repair now, due to possibility of tiles cracking trying to reach everything one by one.

    Best of luck!
