Purchased a large speedpatch and UV primer/resin for the repair of a large hole in an old asbestos garage roof. Products received swiftly with excellent application instructions and I could not be happier with the end result , thoroughly recommended.
Great product. Did exactly what it said it would do. Used it to patch a split in a fibre glass roof and it worked. Set hard in about 30 minutes under cloudy conditions.
Fitted the patch to a damaged roof of my motorhome which I have tried other products on. Can say as of yet the patch has sealed so I am well pleased! Advise anyone using it, get everything ready and leave out of the day light till ready to use as it does go off fairly quickly.
Purchased SpeedPatch – Medium (150 x 225mm) to fill a hole on the roof of my motorhome due to an old satalite dish that was removed, tried silicone and a few other methods which didn’t work. Product was easy to use and hardened within a few minutes, the next day patch was completely solid. So far so good haven’t had any leaks, would highly recommend. Great company!
An incredibly easy kit to use. Make sure you measure up how many holes you have and how large they are and make sure you allow for plenty of the patch to go over the edges of the hole.
Get the area clean and dry. Apply some primer and allow it to dry. Don’t take the patch out of the packet until you’re ready to use it as it will cure very quickly, particularly on sunny days. You can cut the patch to size but do so in the packet and with sharp scissors.
When you’re ready to apply remove the patch from the packet and take off the white release paper. Stick it down hard and ensure all edges are well pressed down. Once applied remove the black cover paper on the top of the speedpatch which will allow it to cure fully.

How To Fix A Leaking Asbestos Roof
How much is it to dismantle and dispose of an asbestos roof?
Simple. A LOT.
And yet it might be just holes in your asbestos roof or gutter. How can little golf-ball sized holes end up costing you so much? Not to mention the risk of distubring asbestos that way.
That’s why we’ve made it easier than ever to fix your own asbestos roof, and still get an effective repair that’ll remain watertight in the long run. How? By using expert solutions that outlast other instant repairs that you’ll find in your local hardware store.
First off, a few notes on safety:
Ensure your roof or gutter is structurally stable and that you’re safe at all times
Check out the HSE guidelines on working with asbestos. These great little guides will keep you safe on the roof

How To Clean Your Asbestos Roof
Start as you mean to go on. Do a thorough clean and your asbestos roof repair can be 100% weatherproof in the long run. Use a soft brush to remove moss, dirt and grime around the hole. Ensure you clean well beyond the hole and affected area. You should be left with an area free of dirt and grime.
How To Wash Your Asbestos Roof
Moss and dirt have been the downfall of many well-meaning DIY roof repairers. But not you. Every kit is equipped with our powerful biocide, this was developed by the market leaders in roof coatings in the competitive markets of Scandinavia and northern Europe, and it’s now available for your asbestos roof repair. Mix 1 part Biocide to 2 parts water, dip the brush in and wash the surface clean. Now moss and spores won’t develop under the repairs and you can stop leaks for longer.
How To Prime Your Asbestos Roof
Most porous surfaces need priming to allow proper adhesion and long term weatherproofing, and your asbestos roof is no exception. This kit comes with a UV curing resin that will dry when exposed to sunlight, making it clean and easy to use. Wait for the surface to dry after your thorough clean, and then paint the primer onto the damaged area. Completely cover the hole and the surrounding area with a generous amount of primer. Wait for this to dry before applying the SpeedPatch. Drying/curing time will depend on the day’s brightness, and you can use a UV light to speed up the cure.
How To Waterproof Your Asbestos Roof
Surface well prepared and primer all dry, and you’re ready for the main event. SpeedPatches are UV cured, so exposure to the daylight will begin to turn them rigid. With this in mind, it’s best to handle the patch carefully, keeping it as much in the shade as possible (even if the only shade that day is from you). Cut open the foil packet and cut the patch to size. Keep in mind that it’s best to cover well beyond the hole for added durability. One side of the SpeedPatch is covered with a sun-blocking tape. Keep this on until after application. This is the side that faces toward the sky. On the other side there is a clear film which you can now peel off.
Apply the speedpatch over the hole so that the sun blocking tape faces up. Apply pressure where it’s safe to do so and ensure that all areas are properly adhered to your asbestos roof. Peel off the black tape and continue applying pressure, particularly around the edges of the patch.
Bigger holes and severely chipped sheets can also be suitable for repair, although you’ve got to make sure that the speedpatch can get enough space around the damaged area.

Not to worry. You can pop a fibreglass style repair patch over the hole to completely seal it. These are called SpeedPatches and they’re perfect for covering holes in asbestos roofs and remaining waterproof in the long run.

The SpeedPatches can be cut to size and used on holes from miniscule sizes up to 22cm x 12cms, although the bigger the size the less the SpeedPatch has to grip onto either side of the hole, which could affect longevity. There are three different sizes of kit so you can find the perfect match for your project. Click here to buy.
As well as SpeedPatches, you’ll need some Biocide and UV Curing resin to properly prepare the area. You can get everything you need, as well as gloves, brushes and a guide with the Asbestos roof and gutter hole repair kit.
‘I’ve Got Cracks In My Asbestos Roof’

‘I’ve Got An Unknown Leak On My Asbestos Roof‘
Moss, dirt and grime can conceal exactly why your roof is leaking. Under all that dirt there could be holes, cracks and generally damaged sheets, all contributing to your problem leak.

Next up you’ll need to consider whether or not it’s best to patch repair parts of go for a complete refurbishment. Patch repair will be along the lines above. And for refurbishment, we recommend using the highly durable coating Alltimes Liquid Rubber coating system to completely seal the roof.
1) Do I need any extra tools or experience to apply it?
No. This is a complete DIY kit. You’ll get everything you need to stop the leak. The only extras you’ll need is a bucket to mix the A-Clean and water together, and a soft brush for the cleaning. This can be a standard dustpan style brush, so long as the bristles are soft.
2) Why should I get a kit?
All of the products in the kit have been carefully selected. They’re generally more durable, longer lasting and easier to apply than what you’ll find at the local hardware store. Roofing contractors have been using these materials for years, and they’re now available to you. It’s also more cost effective to order a kit than to buy the items seperately.
3) How long will the repair last?
You should expecct 5-10 years, but it could be much longer, or shorter if it gets damaged. There’s no clear cut answer for this as it’ll depend on the roof conditions and future weathering. What we can say is that the butyl tapes can easily outlast many other solutions.
4) Is asbestos safe to repair?
Yes, so long as you follow HSE guidelines. Keep yourself safe at all times.
5) Why should I use butyl tape?
Butyl is a tough rubber that can handle temperate change and building movement. This sets it apart from other roofing tapes and solutions, particularly bitumen which has a reputation for cracking in the cold. The butyl is completely waterproof and forms a well adhered seal when combined with a coating or primer.
6) Why is the butyl tape foil or fleece backed?
The foil provides a UV resistant barrier to protect the rubber tape from sun exposure. And the fleece reinforced the tape and holds any subsequently applied coating.
7) Why use a SpeedPatch to cover holes?
Unlike tapes or matting, a SpeedPatch is a tough barrier that’s made from GRP laminate. This is easy to cut to size and shape around roof contours. The SpeedPatch cures when exposed to sunlight and forms a strong rigid barrier over holes. Combine this with the UV Curing primer and you’ve got a watertight seal that will go on year after year.
The Surprisingly Simple Ways Of Working With Asbestos Safely
It’s not as difficult as you think to stay safe when working with asbestos.
Simple HSE regulations can protect you from fibres and give you a quick, easy and effective watertight repair.
Keeping asbestos wet, as these regulations explain, can prevent fibres becoming airborne: http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/guidance/em5.pdf
The same goes for clearing debri from asbestos gutters: http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/guidance/a10.pdf
The HSE reccommend using a biocide on asbestos cement, and the Biocide is included with every kit.
There’s also some great info on Personal Protection Equipment: http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/guidance/em6.pdf
