Flexim Roof Putty is a ready-to-use, flexible, lightweight, storm-proof roof putty, designed specifically for use in the housebuilding market.
It is suitable for both new build construction and re-roofing projects, and its versatility means it can be used on everything from bonding ridge caps and hip tiles, to adhering tiles and tile pieces to valleys and roof windows.
In addition, because Flexim can also be used to treat a range of other minor repairs and leaks, it certainly pays for contractors to make sure that they’ve always got a box available in their van.
Supplied in ready-to-use strips, the material is rapid and easy to install and is instantly water resistant.
The makers claim it can also be installed in as little as one third of the time of traditional mortar bonding systems, and therefore offers significant cost saving benefits for both housebuilders and contractors.
Indeed, tests have shown that when materials and labour are taken into account, the product is up to 50% cheaper to install than conventional cement mortars.
And, just as importantly from a health and safety perspective, the lightweight strips are not a back-breaker to transport onto the roof and install.
Successfully tested at wind speeds of 110 miles per hour, it is independently certified by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and meets the NHBC standards.
Importantly, the product is also environmentally friendly as it is formulated using natural linseed oil, and it is therefore ideal for use during sustainable building construction.
