flat roof question


I had my concrete tile roof cleaned and painted recently and the painter told me that the seam between the flat roof over the porch and the pitched roof needs to be fixed soon. He said i need to "bull" it and laydown fiberglass mesh that he gave me and then another coat of "bull." Well i went to home depot and of course no product called bull. They have a product called leak stopper rubberized roof patch. Is that the same stuff? was he correct on the way to fix this? It oesnt leak but he said that it needs to be fixed so it wont. Thanks

flat roof question


Some guys call it Bull, since it is a Bull Chit way to permanently patch a flat roof, but it can be done to last a long time if done correctly.

It is also called Dope, Black-Jack, Plastic Roofing Cement and Buckets of Roofing Tar, but it is all the same.

In my region, we call the plastic roofing cement, Dope, and the mesh fabric, Minnie. To each their own.

Here are some instructions on how to do a Dope and Minnie patch.

For further installation instructions, do a search under my user name and search posts, not threads, for the term; Dope and Minnie.
