    i haqve an unusual question could i use this on a wooden camper top to waterproof it and if so i would assume that using the screen mesh would be a good thing and then covering it with reflective uv paint would be the icing on the cake for sure

    Good video with good explanation. Nevertheless while watching the video i was kind of feeling quite a cold sweat for worrying the technician might fall off from the roof.

    Very impressed with this video. Thank you. Would you have any idea what will stick a butyl rubber sheet to roofing felt? Trying to do a repair with some spare butyle from the pond on a flat roof.

    Hi bud , great video.. I couldn't get compound delivered to my address, but could get 25l bitchumen paint. Weather has been warm…but after 3 days first coat is still sticky. How long does it take to ho off or will it always be sticky when warm ..? Cheers bud

    I love how easy you made this seem. I cant wait to start my sun room project myself after being quoted 1400$ for the job. Thank You for sharing!!! 🙂

    If I have a relatively sound bitchumin felt roof, and want to keep the room beneath cooler as it gets sun all day in the summer months, can I simply clean the roof and add the solar reflective paint, or do you recommend a layer of primer etc beforehand? Do you think I should go as far as adding a layer of the bitchumen paint as you did? the felt must be around 10 years old now. So I feel adding this now may help prolong it's life before any leaks start!

    Hi. My flat roof is covered in a fibre glass material. Had it 10 years but now showing early signs of leaks. Can I use this method on fibre glass? Cheers.

    Mate, all I can say is thank-you very much. I've had a structural problem with my roof for the 23 years I lived in my house, which I believe to have been a problem from the time the extension was built 40+years ago. Your solution cost me AU$200 and maintaining it's integrity. This was after a no.of experts and two roofs later amounting to over AU$25000. Were I in Old Blighty, I'd give you a case of your poison (booze). Yes I had corrugations which prooved to be a pain in the arse, cutting the Flyscreen into strips got around that to some degree. I hope that my house now survives the fires. A hearty good on ya from Oz.

    My garage roof has an asphalt roof that is leaking badly, it has a layer of what i think is black basalt stones I guess that means I will need to strip thewhole roof of before attempting any repair. Is there any advantage to reapplying a similar topping? The slope on the roof is minimal.

    wow, so nice. But you have had to provide the material lists that are to be available in another country than England which is adaptable and use of mere this video.
