flat roof leak repair - £10.49 @ Screwfix

Found this stuff on screwfix and its a good price to fix a leaking flat roof.

flexacryl, c £10 a tin with 5 delivery, I got 4 tins and still £5 delivery

If you haven't got a leaking roof right now it won't be much of a deal but if you do you'll realise its priceless. I had water coming through the lights which was a bit of a worry.

It goes on in any weather/conditions, comes in different colours and is a durable long lasting fix - I phoned the manufacturer as I didn't want a short term repair.

Its an instant fix too. Flat roofs are notorious for leaks so hope this helps, I spent ages trying to find the right stuff and I think this is a cracking price to repair a roof. I thought I was looking at a big outlay. Next day delivery as well.

Its instant, you just paint it over the crack and thats it, job done + it will last for years. Similar stuff, ebay for eg is £20 + del.

I didn'tr realise but there are also money off codes too which makes it even cheaper.

Certainly looks like it is :? . This isn't a deal or bargain either it's just normal price.

It's a bit like posting up an umbrella you used as it was raining today :whistling:

doh!

<> c = about, apply discount codes so its not exact

<< I spent ages trying to find the right stuff and I think this is a cracking price to repair a roof.>>

the point is I posted this to help people out, you can buy an umbrella anywhere but try fixing a flat roof for under a few hundred quid so if you've got a leaking roof it is a deal and in my view it is a bargain. You are entitled to your opinion though.

Please don't expire a deal without giving a reason & a link. We can see who's done it & an infraction will be issued if it continues, thanks :thumbsup:

(not meant for 3 posters above btw ;-))

Sorry, I expired it because the price had increased from the stated £10 to £10.49.
I see that the price of this deal has now been amended to £10.49 both in the deal & in the post title.

Heat added.

used something similar this on my flat roof a couple of months ago, think I paid double this price for a 1Kg tin, so hot for me :thumbsup:
#8
Useful - thanks...
#9
buy 5 tins and you get free delivery
#10
This stuff is invaluable. South Pier in Blackpool have massive stock of this for their flat roofs it's that good!
#11
I think we paid £57.00 + vat for a 5 litre tin of a similar make in Jewsons a couple of weeks ago
#12
Don't knock this stuff or the OP, it is brilliant stuff. Works on joints on glass on flat roof too.
#13
cheers, just what i need. :thumbsup:

If you are looking for a serious long lasting refurbishment as opposed to quick bodge then the stuff to get is Acropol
http://www.acrypolproducts.co.uk/products_acrypol_plus.html
This is NOT cheap but is V effective.
Any good roofing place will sell it eg asphaltic. It is effectively a flexible resin containing glass fibre strands. Cannot recomend it enough - my roof was cracking up badly five years ago and this made it like new.
Not cheap but then nor are professional roofers
One point to note - call first and get a quote - these places will normally give between 25-50% off if you are non-trade and call in advance to price it. Well worth haggling as well.

........when teamed up with a bit of gravity water becomes clever & cunning stuff.

acrypol is just a well advertised brand that everyone knows, i sell these products and the flexacryl is just as good as is another paint called aqua shield.

All three have got fibres in to bridge any gaps or cracks,

This how ever is not a bargain as i sell 5kg for £30 odd

Yes after a while, but it remains flexible to a degree to allow for climatic change.

It just works, brilliant stuff.:thumbsup:

Its true what the other poster said, water is a tricky one. I started off looking inside the loft/roof that joins the flat bit but didn't see anything out of the ordinary so went up onto my flat roof and saw several definite areas (cracks in the lead) and some potential problems where the joins were.
Basically i 'painted it on' all the cracks and also the potential areas (overlapping joins) and since then its been fine, ceiling light not leaking or even a hint of water getting in. 1kg tin was actually ample.

The weather was awful when I put it on so I intend to go back again in spring and reapply for good measure.

Good to see some other members have found cheaper too.

Cheers :thumbsup:

Patching rarely works or if it does last. You really are best using one of the specialist products like this - ie acrypol/flexcryl etc that have some sort of fibre in them and do the WHOLE roof. It really is the only way to guarentee a decent lasting result and ensures a complete bonded surface. If one bit is going the rest wont be far behind.
Personally I prefer Acrypol + - have had much better results with it and it comes in White which I prefer for heat reasons - it is also important to make sure that if isnt a combined repair/solar paint then you must put solar paint on it once it is dry to protect it. That and make sure you reapply the solar paint reguarly. I do mine yearly as its white and I live in londo so it gets dirty quickly. It is surprising how much cooler it keeps it in summer being white as opposed to grey.
