    Hi all,
    We have an old asbestos sheet corrugated roofed garage, which is leaking quite badly. The sheets have sort of cracked and you can see daylight through it in some places.

    I got a quote from a firm recently who wanted £1700 to redo the roof with upvc sheets. Is that about right or would some local independent person be able to do it for much less?

    I think its probably beyond squirting some kind of sealant onto it...

    Cheers!

    Thanks, it might be worth a try although brushing it on without falling through the roof might be a challenge!

    Ouch!!!!! Don't do it! :(

    Only if it's safe? I'd suggest a strong ladder horizontally placed.
