    I put a couple of layers of torch on underlay to my workshop roof and today’s rain has identified that it’s not sealed somewhere, so I’d like to get the top layer on ASAP. I’m going to revert back to adhesive to make sure I’m happy there is a complete seal and overlap it by 75-100mm (and I don’t set fire to anything).

    Question is, what top layer should I use?

    Many thanks.

    Which ever your flat roofer recommends. Seriously, why are you messing about doing a torched flattie?

    Neighbour recommended it but as it was my first attempt I’m not comfortable doing the top coat in that. I’d be happier taking my time slapping adhesive down and nailing it on and making sure all joints and seams are sealed.

    I’ve got this roll which I was going to use. Looks the same as what’s up there, but a nail on version.
