We have purchased a new house and we have an unfinished extension, now it is hard to explain but the roof part of it is the balcony of the of the second floor.
now as it is half finished, he issue is with the roof, the guy before us made the roof out of thick cement sheeting and has used bitumen paint to water proof it, now as the sheets are in squares and doesn't cover one area and there are joines, which are leaking, instead of using bitumen paint again which when standing on the balcony, is ugly anyway, what can do to make so that it doesn't leak and it is sealed and done properly, and so it's not ugly from the top when standing on the balconey.
Questions welcomed if moe info needed.
Thanks heaps for any input

sounds like Hardies compressed sheet - check out their website on waterproof decking .
Whichever way you go I would suggest having it waterproofed by an accredited company with a warranty.
