    is this a proprietary product?

    I expect it is the branded product similar to

    Very popular with chicken keepers because it removes hiding place for red mite.

    My shed roof is covered with pondliner. Comes with a 25 year guarantee and in big pieces so there's no need for a join.

    I've just had a quick look at prices of pond liner and it's remarkably cheap and probably easier to fit that felt.

    finally did it. I found that there we a piece of felt the right size and unused in the shed, so I went with that and a tin of adhesive. Gave a good 10m of lap over the ridge and held it down with pins (mitigated the risk of it leaking though the holes by putting lots of sticky there.

    The biggest problem was the adhesive getting on tools, hands etc. If anyone needs to know, automotive brake cleaner shifts it really well.

    I hope that's the last dang thing I need to do to that shed for some time

    Two years ago I was skint and my shed roof was leaking, the only thing I had was some black poly sheeting so I stapled that on, it’s just this week started to leak and would you believe I was on Gumtree this morning and bagged myself a brand new 10 metre roll of felt for a tenner. Sometimes I think there must be a god.(small g)
