Rated 1 out of 5 by Lindsay Hard to use
Hard to use even with the gun, I cut the nozzle right down to make it easier but it still did not work. I did not technically need it as I was covering existing felt so in the end I threw it out with the rest of the rubbish. Sorry home base!

Rated 1 out of 5 by rl3000 Awful stuff
I have a pent shed with a shallow slope so I don't want to use nails (a shallow slope means water may sit for longer in an irregularity than it might do on a steeply sider apex shed).
Accordingly, when I re-felted earlier this year I used a cold adhesive. The reviews of the product weren't very good but I thought if I worked with a large overlap and nailed tightly at the sides this work be OK. The tactic did work though I must say the adhesive I used at the time was pretty useless.
I noticed recently that the edges weren't stuff down as well as that might be and this was diverting rainwater over the sides instead of allowing free run down to the rear gutter.I therefore bought this product to seal down those edges.
It proved to be a VERY messy product to work with and seemed very sticky. Unfortunately the one thing it wouldn't stick was roofing felt!
The result was absolute rubbish. I tried waiting for it to become more tacky before pressing the edges down and I tried weighting the edges and leaving them for some hours. Hopeless, nothing worked - this stuff has absolutely no propensity to stick felt down.
Having finished, the felt is still not stuck at the edges but now it looks awful as well with this stuff having spread all over the place. I therefore do not recommend that you even try this, because if it doesn't work you have not only wasted your money, but will probably end up with a mess that can't be cleaned up.
