Thanks SilverNodashi,

I'm talking about the specific point where you need to go into the roof under the tile.
Do you cut the tile or just move it and pull the cables through and lay the tile just on top of the bare cable?

I will be using trunking once I'm in the roof spacing of course.

Right now my cables enter the roof through the tiles (i.e. lift up the tile and put the cable through, bare), and then into trunking underneath the tiles. But I'm going to redo everything at some stage, and lay a trunk on top of the tiles (under the panels), then off the side of the roof / wall, and then into the garage through the air vent.

I'm thinking of maybe taking the tile out and grinding a grove underneath so that the cable wont be squashed and then just wrap it with some insulation tape just to protect it a bit more at that point.

This should also make for a tighter seal again.
Running down the wall will just cost me way to much in cable especially when I add the next 2 strings.

Just add a dab of silicone sealant.
