"Used this flashing tape to create a lap over from the roof of my new log cabin into the new guttering, works perfectly with rainwater running smoothly from the felt roof into the 6 mtrs of guttering."
"An elderly customer asked me to look at her severely broken Georgian (Allegedly) cast iron downpipe from her porch roof - it was in bits, not helped by a rose bush stem trunk that the gardener had helpfully trained behind the pipe so it had pried the pipe away from the wall. We managed to work the rose bush trunk out from behind the pipe and then rebuilt the downpipe using this tape in sections, building up layers around the breaks - it sticks like the preverbial to a blanket and is very unforgiving if you let adhesive touch adhesive. the job was done and will outlast the customer!! It also saved her a fortune in having to replace a downpipe that is normally hidden by the garden."
"This is a very reasonably priced product with excellent adhesion. You do need to use some sort of tar based primer first on the roof to get good adhesion of the tape. It also needs to be applied very carefully as the smallest wrinkle or crease will allow water to gradually penetrate and this then seems to weaken the adhesive so allowing more water to seep underneath. I would recommend applying the tape and then overcoating it along the edges with a heavy roof sealant to avoid problems later. I had to redo one area of a caravan roof twice before it was completely sealed, and I thought I had done it really carefully in the first place."
"I have now used this several times mainly to seal gaps between polycarbonate roofing and brick or over ridges. Its fairly easy to use but it can go wrong quite quickly! Don't take the side packaging off before you unroll it as it will stick where you don't want it to stick! Not sure on reliabilty yet but it's been good for so far!"
