    Pros:  easy to use

    "I have a small building with an old felt flat roof - the felt had several cracks in it, and during heavy rain would leak. I'd tried another sealant on it before which didn't do the job, however this product , which was applied last summer, has not flaked or peeled in the sunshine and has remained watertight since, despite some very heavy rain. I used the really stodgy material at the bottom of the tin to fill the cracks themselves, before going over the whole roof with a brush coat of the material. I dressed the roof with some small white chippings whilst the bitumen was still tacky as a heat reflective measure, but I'm not sure this was really necessary (I used a big bag of off white coloured aquirium grit, as I couldn't find any garden grit that was small and light coloured enough)."

    Pros:  good cover, does what it says on the tin
    Cons:  tell people how to use it

    "this is a good product I have used it previously surely anyone with common sense would stir this up before using alright most paint these days is non drip but use a bit of logic bitumen is tar and either needs heating or stirring before use"

    "I agree with exqs69 of Kent, there is the slick "warm honey" that flows really easily and there is the stodgy bit at the bottom that is made of gloopy fiberous stuff. So having read exqs69's comment I dug down for this stuff and put it in the big cracks and holes while using the slick stuff to spruce up the unbroken flat surfaces. 1 days rain so far so good :-)"

    Pros:  ease of use
    Cons:  incomplete instructions

    "I purchased a can of this to repair some cracks in a felt roof as a preliminary to adding a new felt topping layer on a shed. The instructions etc show the product is 'ready for use'. Having applied about half the can, there appeared to be a sand like substance mixed in the bottom. I would have thought this should have been mixed into the whole before I started, but nowhere does this get mentioned in the instructions. I was therefore obliged to go back over the work done with this gloup which hopefully will set and seems to fill out the cracks!"
