    Before summer ends and the four horsemen of the apocalypse arrive, I want to hopefully implement a solution to my question above.

    I know the best solution is to replace the roof itself and that still might be an option. I am on a budget and ironically if I was to dispose of the roof myself it would seem to cost me nothing (apart from purchasing disposable PPE) because my council will collect it for free but charge a chunk to a company if they removed it for me, who would obviously then pass that on to me.

    After a bit of research using my DIY knowledge, I'm wondering if I can simply use this paint instead after I remove the moss of course and use a solution like this to remove delights such as lichen?

    It won't be pretty as I'll just slap as much as I can on especially in the areas that leak. As far as I can tell there are no holes and large cracks.

    Thanks very much and hope you can help.

    Sounds like a plan.

    You may need to suitably prop the roof from below and use crawl boards.
