Temporary repair to a cracked roofing slate

Cost: Difficulty:


Temporary Repair

Working on the roof It may not be possible to replace a slate immediately. In order to minimise any water damage, weather proof the slate temporarily. Prop up the slates that overlap the cracked one with wooden wedges, and use a wire brush to clean the surface round the crack.

Working in the loft space

Use an applicator gun to inject adhesive expanding foam along cracks or gaps from inside the loft.
