background image in style sheet wont show

hi, i am having troubles with inserting a background-image into my css, the image does not show. bellow is my code..

<section class="main-banner">

.main-banner { width: 100%; height: 100vh; background-image: url("img/roof-slider1.jpg"); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: cover; }

the image is in a folder called img which is in the main root folder. the image name is correct. this seems to be happening on all of my projects and not just the 1 i am working on. any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

If you're running this locally, have you tried referencing your img files like this?
