Purchased a home last month with a mostly flat roof. Apprehensive in doing so for obvious reasons and now find I have leaking issues to deal with : (
Roof is modified rolled fiber material. Strips about 18" wide. May be several layers thick. Building built in 1947.
Changing weather here in the U.S. Northeast makes major replacement work impossible so I am left with needing to apply some kind of emergency patch system where there are leaks.
Purchased a product called Leaker Stopper at local home supply store. Rubberized asphalt material thick like molasses. Applied with a trowel. Worked it on in the suspect areas. Will see if it successful.
Suspected spots have heavy aligatoring... as the roofers call it. Is this the old coatings coming up from heat?
Is there anything you folks can suggest that may be better?
