[H2] Assessment of damage and repair
Finding a roof leak can be challenging, further you cannot simply rely on caulking roof sealant alone to fix a big hole. Caulking roof sealant can be used in small applications for water diversion or to plug small holes, anything beyond this may require a more complex repair.
Assess where the leak is at in the home, remember the water may travel from a different location based on the architecture. Once you have a vague idea of the leak location, the safest manner to look is to go up into your attic space. Look for black areas or mold which are typically a strong indicator of water leaks. Go outside and look at the shingles/roofing. Things to look for in flat sections of roof are misplaced shingles, mold buildup or rotting sections. The most common type of roof leak is caused by a penetration in the roof, this is anything from your chimney, plumbing, roof vents anything that passes directly through the roof. A poor seal around the base of a penetration is a common culprit of roof leaks. Remember the leak could be within ten feet of where the water is entering the home.
The project will be a relatively small repair if it is a leak around a penetration as *product name*PL Roof and Flashing Polyurethane Sealant will be able to plug small gaps and holes. Rotting roof sections or damaged shingles will be a much larger project and require a more indepth repair.
[H2] Roof repair with Caulk

For larger repairs the sealant may be used on new joints as needed. Before application ensure that the joint you wish to apply sealant to is dry, clean and free of any debris. It should also be structurally sound, although the sealant is flexible it is not intended to be an adhesive. If you do need to bond wood on the roof, consider using *product name* 510 Wood and Panel. Steps for repairing a roof seal with caulk are as follows:
[H3] Recommended tools: Razor blade, gloves, caulking gun and *product name*PL Roof and Flashing Polyurethane Sealant

Surface preparation - While *product name*Polyurethane Sealant is generally considered a non-priming sealant, special circumstances or substrates (Copper, galvanized and stainless steel) may require a primer. Where incidental water immersion may occur, priming is required. Apply the primer with a brush and allow to dry for 30 minutes, only a small layer is typically required. The primer and sealant must be applied in the same day.
Application - It is important to apply the sealant with a steady pressure, forcing it into the joint. Protect open product and tools from direct sunlight for best results. Do not use in joints deeper than ½' (13 mm) without the use of a backer rod. The depth of the sealant should be half the width of the joint. The maximum depth is ½' (31 mm) and the minimum is ¼' (6 mm). The sealants skin will harden within twenty-four hours, is functional within three days and will fully cure in seven days.
