Hi,

We have a flat roof over a wooden storage area that has large cracks in it and leaks terribly in the rain. It appears to be tar paper, tar and gravel. My husband wants to fill the cracks with something and then roll on a white elastomeric roof coating. Will this prevent leaking. We live on a fixed income so are trying to keep repairs at minimun.
Thanks,
Marianne

His proposal ( not the one preceding your wedding) won't last much more than 6-12 months. But if he removes the old roof down to the plywood deck, he can then do an elaastomeric job or a polyglass peel and stick
