    Hi,
    I am a small metal shed (bit like this one http://www.screwfix.com/p/yardmaster-sliding-door-apex-shed-10-x-8-/68419?kpid=68419&cm_mmc=Google-_-Product Listing Ads-_-Sales Tracking-_-sales tracking url&cm_mmc=Google-_-Shopping - Landscaping and Outdoor-_-Shopping - Landscaping and Outdoor&gclid=CjwKEAjw-IOwBRD1wrTC27fSjFISJABUDZ17YOnyKbbYf3jdWbQKtgLR21WKsy_eDgJM--AfrDk1QBoCKmnw_wcB&kpid=68419
    for sell in screfix, but smaller).

    Now the part of the roof is rust and start to leak. Other than throw it away or replace the whole roof, is it possible to put felt on a metal shed roof? I can't really nail the felt (as there is no wood to support it). Is it possible to glue it there using some felt adhesive?

    Many Thanks

    Remove the rust, right? Wash off any dust and debris, let it dry, and apply a generous coat of a bitumous based liquid, brush on type. Put a pice on top for 24hr, and see if it sticks. 99.9% it will.

    Only down side with bitumous is that it's only apply-able when it warm; the slightest cold, and it's like peanut butter.
