ROOF REPAIR KIT

Postby Len » Mon, 12 Jun 2017 1:31 +0000

Hi,

Just a quick question. I have a small rip in the roof (vinyl). Has anybody used one of the roof repair kits available on the net.

I have been looking on line and not sure if someone can recommend one if they have done this before.

I have a hard top for that 5 so not worried about it leaking but would like to repair rather than replace.

Thanks
Len

I've not used those exact kits but did use a bicycle puncture repair patch to get an extra 3 months out of an old roof I had. It worked well (flexy enough) with no leaks for that time.

Yeah, had thought of that and the other thing I have - but its black and my roof is beige on that 5 - is a dinghy repair kit. I saw on an old post someone recommended sugru. Its like a flexible bond but prefer the idea of some sort of 'patch' with sealant like for a boat other than stitching etc that will potentially rip again.

Divers suit repair kit is brilliant job but not sure it comes in beige?You could always paint it?? Repair is never going to look great anyway but would be waterproof
