Hi All

I am looking for a sealant I can use to temporarily seal a loose tiled area on a roof, is there anything you can think of that I can use to cover an area 1mtr square

Thanks
Dave

If the tiles need sealing it's better to replace them, but Thompson's Water Seal will probably work.

Are you sure it's the tiles that are a problem?

Hi Ayjay

I need to seal some bees in under the roof tiles temporarily so the roofer can complete the work without worrying about the Bees, the tiles look to have a few gaps in them and the Bees have been there a while, the property owner does not want them moved and the roofer is concerned about being stung !!

Thanks for your help

Dave

That's a bit different, they will already have an established flight route and to block that off will annoy them anyway, might be better to just wait for cooler weather when they will be much less active.

Hi

What I am planning to do is leave it until the colder weather, I want to seal where they are going in and out and then remove the seal after the work is complete but not leave any stain or mark on the tiles, they appear to be going in under a few of the tiles.

Thanks

Dave
