The roof of our house has a so-called Genoise. There the rainwater runs into an old terracotta gutter. When we renovated the house in 2012 this part of the roof was ok. We changed a few tiles, cleaned and "mortared" everything. Last year a tree slowly grew out of the gutter. The gutter is located at a height of 12 meters. The tree destroyed the gutter and rainwater ran into the house wall. We built up a scaffolding and since a few days we have been repairing the roof. Today Tine removed the last root of the tree!
