Generally, it is influenced by the improper roof slope. In the type of roofing that is commonly used by the community, it should have a slope of 30-40 degrees. Less than that, it is guaranteed that it is prone to leakage due to gutter from rainwater, and more than that the position of the tile is prone to sagging which also results in the roof becoming leaking. The solution to this problem is to rearrange the roof slope (aka total demolition) or a cheaper one by giving a leak-proof coating sheet either plastic or something similar to the bottom of the tile. This generally occurs because the masons are not careful when spelling out roof locations that are ‘prone to’ rainwater. For example, at the location of ridges edge joints, trim, and gutters. For example in the ridge, which if it is made too high it will be prone to cracks so that it will leak when exposed to rainwater. The solution is to provide a waterproof layer such as waterproof or rubber gutter on the leaking part.

Each roof covering material has its character. For example, between clay tile and ceramic tile, it is clear that ceramic tile is better for resisting rainwater because of its watertight properties and an interlocking design. This affects the slope tolerance that can be applied to your home. Likewise with other materials such as galvanized sheets and asbestos. Asbestos may be much cheaper but the weather resistance is stronger than the galvanized sheet. The choice of material quality that is careless affects the resistance to rainwater attacks.
