    Should the breather membrane be visible after the tiles are fitted? How can I rectify the problem?

    It should only be visible where it drapes into the gutter to provide a drip edge.
    You need to say where you can see it.
    If it's the gutter drip edge, leave it alone.

    There is a board referred to as 'multiboard', which is a fibrous sheet maybe 5mm thick that I line exterior porch roofs with if the client requires a clean look of the timber construction. It is commonly used as a cavity closer.You lay it on top of the timbers, under the battens. Then continue the rest of the roof as normal.
