Fiberglass work
« on: October 18, 2020, 05:16:34 AM »
Came across some cracking on the roof while prepping to paint the roof.  This is the only spot that has actual cracks in the fiberglass. Rest of the roof appears to be in great shape.  What would be the fix for this?  It is about a 16” section with multiple cracks.

Adam, based upon your picture it is hard to determine the severity of your roof cracks. Some small holes also appear to be present. My experience has been to use fiber glass with resin. For cracks drill small holes at each end of the crack and carve out the crack creating a vee  to apply the fiber glass . Fiber glass  comes in different applications such sheets, rope and cat hair which seem to fit your use. Sanding and repainting of course are also required . Best of luck

Thanks Bryan.  Yes, it’s difficult to see.  It seems very thin in this area. Almost like an eggshell.  I don’t think it would be possible to V it out.  Maybe there is so e delamination happening?
