    I got my roof done in the summer , and wished I had not bothered. 1st attempt they bust approx 9 tiles - left lots of debri in the guttering - numerous phone calls and grief - approx 1200 for a semi. In my opinion save your money go to your local builders merchant and buy some roof tile coating.

    I beleive from your question that you were asking what the product is rather than a rough price. The product used is Mathys Dac Hydo D made by the company Mathys. You can check there web page for info but as a guide the price per tin is £80 + vat + delivery. This tin will cover 6-8 square meteres. This product also requires a primer which I know that most roof coating companys do not put on prior to the top coat. Perhaps this is why there are problems. If used correctly this product carries a ten year manufacturers guarentee.

    You don't put magic coating on roofs, you fix them properly. Aquasealing your roof is like ****** tarmacing your drive....looks nice when you pay.

    Who was talking about aquasealing roofs. Aquaseal is the name of a company not the product used. Sounds like a ***** wanting to replace the roof. Do you know anything about paint? If used correctly it does do exactly as it says on the tin, why do you think the manufactures of the materials give such guarentees if they cannot back this up, or do you think that is sales rubbish.

    Yes, you don't put it on a roof.....unless you are a *****.

    good for you laddie.

    i think everyone should be entitled to a new looking roof even if it does cost thousands.

    I have been aproached by a company by the name of
    Aquaroofseal,
    25-27 Waterside St. Strathaven.
    and wondered if anyone here have ever heard of, or had dealings with this company.
    Are they cowboys ??????

    Cheers
