Question

Roofing TAR too THICK to spread on rolled roofing


How can we heat it up to make it easier to spread? We already carried 5 5 GAL. buckets up onto the roof and hope whatever needs to be done can be done up there. Please HELP

I have seen homes burnt to the point of total lost due to the use of torches on the roof, so, carry the 5 buckets back down and return them for a cold weather application brand.

I was'nt aware there was a brand for cold weather application. But, knowing will not help me at this point. My Dad (the homeowner) will not exchange the materials. Trust me.

Are you trying to spread roof cement on top of a roof? A tarp would work better.
