Picture this: after a hard week’s work, you are looking forward to relaxing at home for the weekend, and spending time with your family and friends. Then you hear the often familiar, and often dreaded pit-pat of a leak. You scour the house looking for the source of that sound. After a few minutes of frantic searching, you realize that a small leak in the roof is the cause of the problem. Within minutes, your weekend is ruined and you are already calculating the contractor’s cost in your head.
A single leak can often cost thousands of dollars in repairs. No wonder the pit-pat of a leak is so dreaded. You can try repairing it at home with putty, rubber and what not, but the end result is seldom satisfying or adequate. But finally, there is a solution to leaks that will not burn a hole in your pocket: Flex Seal.
Flex Seal is essentially liquid rubber in an easy to use, portable aerosol spray can. It shoots a stream of thick, black rubber onto a surface, covering it thoroughly and plugging any leaks or cracks. You have to see it in action to believe how effective and easy to use it really is. The rubber is thick and strong, yet flexible enough to mold itself into any shape. You can spray it on gutters, roofs, pipes, skylights, small water pools and a lot more.
The liquid rubber contained in can of Flex Seal is very strong and will last for years. It will not crack or become brittle in the winter, nor will it sag and loosen up in summers. The rubber is waterproof and seeps deep into cracks and holes to plug them completely. Once dried, it takes the shape of whatever surface it is sprayed on. While the rubber itself is black, it can be painted any color once dried.
The uses of Flex Seal are endless. No wonder it is often called ‘handyman in a can’. It is best used, of course, for plugging up leaks and cracks in anything from a boat to a bird bath. But it can also be used on doors and windows to stop vibrations, deaden noise, and provide better insulation. Simply put, a can of Flex Seal should be a must have in every household; you never know when you might need to fix a leak.
A single can of Flex Seal costs a mere $19.99. One large can contains enough liquid rubber to cover a surface between 2 to 8 square feet, depending on the thickness of the coat. When compared to other solutions to fix leaks – hiring a plumber or a contractor – this is a complete steal. A contractor will often charge you hundreds of dollars to fix a single leak, while one can of Flex Seal can do the same job but for far, far less.
Flex Seal is a must have tool in any house. It works extremely well in almost any setting and plugs up cracks and leaks effortlessly. Cost wise, it is far more affordable than any other home repair solutions out there. It is easy to use and requires no previous experience with home repairs. All in all, the Flex Seal should be at the very top of your home repair purchase list!
