I have been using the lead stuff on a roll and its not working. What sort of roofs is it good for?

Just hate going into Screwfix as its not very female friendly.

might try some of this, water keeps getting it with all this rain!

i used it on a flat roof which had the felt on it, use clothes you dont mind throwing away, also you will not be able to use the brush again as it wont clean so get a cheap hard bristle 4 inch brush.

it sounds like you are using lead flashing, that stuff normally has to be 'cut in'. im not expert of even diy type person, just someone who came home the other night to find my bathroom light was dripping water, there is a flat roof above it as the bathroom was built into my roof so there is a flat part.

painted this stuff on it ( still damp) and last night when it absolutely lashed it down it was water tight

i got some more today to do the other 2 parts of flat roof on my house just in case.

just to add, apparently the 5 litre tubs were updated last month with 20% extra free, i wasnt so lucky and just got the 5 litres today but maybe some stores have the new stock ( i got mine from exeter)

I don’t have lead flashing around my chimney, will this stuff help?

How is it sealed to the roof?
I just had my chimney and stack removed and the flashing was the only thing that kept the outside out.

I have been trying to seal where my carport roof meets a shed roof, different heights. I was getting the stuff on a roll from Wilkinsons but its still leaking. Its getting worse

If i call someone in it will cost a fortune so i might give this a go.

i know what you mean about the trades people costing a fortune,is there a large enough drop for guttering? that would be the perminant solution.

i had to remove my car port plastic corrigating as the bathroom is above it, that took longer than painting the roof.

mine just says use within 12 months unopened can, couldnt see a manufacture date on it

apparently once it is opened you need to use it or lose it although i did see somewhere that by putting cling film over the remainder of unused stuff may keep it fresh

i know its not for everyone but to fix my roof would have cost £250 plus had i called someone in, it cost me under £20 and 30 minutes of my time to do it.

the product is also alot cheaper than most places seem to sell it for which is upto £30 per 1 litre tin

could do with something like this

Try storing the tin upside down. That way the air can't get in and it may last a little longer.

One of the best treatments for leaking roofs is ISOFLEX can be bought at the likes of B&Q this stuff can be put on even in the rain, they use it on oil rigs underwater. This cured my lead flat roof instantly in the rain having flashbanded and bitumined previously to no avail.
