HELP!!! I bought house with a remodeled garage (which is now an office). The pitch of the roof isn't enough to do the trick and the rolled tar paper, which I sealed to the old roof with Henry's 204 plastic roof sealant. I gummed up each nail and every spot that looked like it might like to crack on a sunny day. That was just a few months ago.
Now, it's starting to look like fall and we've had a few days of rain and guess what....
What am I doing wrong? I don't have the money (or the skill) to change the pitch of the roof. I've been out of work for 2 months now, so I'm looking for a low budget solution.
One idea I had; coat the snot out of the roof with asphalt sealer (I have 60 gallons). Maybe I could sprinkle white sand on it when I'm done to keep the sun (if we see it again this year) from turning it into melted ice cream. Bad idea?
You are at the place now where you need a replacement.
If you proceed with additional viscuous coating and patching compounds, the price will go up Substantially for the crew having to position themselves and their wequipment in that floating cess-pool of liquified asphalt junk.
