not sure where you got the 2 year warranty from ..most houses built under the the NHBRC scheme is for 10 years ...i doubt if its a flat roof ..but from experience im guessing yo have a problem with the cavity tray ...a device fitted in a brick wall fitted over an opening internal its job is to force water out that may have been driven through brickwork under storm /strong winds condition
