Hi all, please see image below for a problem I have just discovered with garage roof after seeing a puddle of water inside. Really bad rain at the moment so keen to get this solved as quickly as possible (although want a good repair).

Pretty sure it's an asbestos roof - this was raised in Homebuyer's report when buying the house.

Do you guys have any recommendations on the best option for repair?

Many thanks in advance

Really the panel needs replacing but that'll be a pain and you risk damaging other panels, you'll need a perfect match and you have the asbestos issue to deal with. A relatively easy fix that should last a while is a flashband patch. Clean the surface, apply flashband primer, let it dry, stick on the flashband. You can buy a small roll of flashband complete with a little tin of primer from screwfix.

Hi nick, thanks for your message back to me. I thought that may be the case but to be honest I don't think we can afford to do that now, so the patch seems like a good plan and I will head up to Screwfix at the weekend and buy it.

Can I just check, when you say a while, do you mean years?

Thanks again for your help.
