Hi, This stuff is a roofers nightmare, and a salespersons dream! I have not ever come across one happy customer that has had this crap pasted over their roof. As a roofer I would have to charge you almost double just to try to repair just the simplest of job, because I cant get this junk of your tiles. As you can tell , roofers don't like this product. Please don't fall for the salespersons bull, and spend thousands on this mess. Sorry if im a bit ranty on this subject. Regards Sam

Hi Stephanie This is not a long term solution and when you do come to have the roof re-covered it will cost you so much more due to the time it takes to strip it, in my opinion you would be wasting your hard earned money. Kind Regards Chris

Hi stephanie. The fact that you feel the need. To ask about this product means that your not sure. A good roofer would tell you to leave well alone and get proper advice on your repairs. Good luck. Donald

Ive had the interior of my roof done with a low rise,polyurethane foam...... It looks good and seems solid. Im not a roofer but really impressed by it.

Please please do not do that as it's a complete waste of time and money! It will not insulate your loft at all and you are only paper overing the cracks so to speak because it's leaking it will just carry on leaking causing more damage to your timbers which then become a major problem. The money you spend on that will probably come 70% towards having a brand new roof tiles/felt and battens. So either have it repaired properly or consider a full replacement. Hope this helps.

good for what it is,but like all said before me,its a night to replace roof and very costly as much labour time is needed to remove tiles from roof,best to stay clear from it as we have lived with out it for years any way
