    Whitey66 replied to a thread Box gutter membrane in Waterproofing
    Ormonoid works good, I've repaired gutters that have remained leak free after 10 years. I'm not near the coast though, so no salt air exposure which will increase rusting.

    Buy it and try it, if it doesn't work return it and get your money back. One thing I have found Bunnings great for is returns for stuff that doesn't work as it should.

    What type of roofing is on the building? If it's a klip-lok type roof they can be quite noisy as they expand and contract, one of the reasons they are mainly used on commercial building and not so much on houses and apartments. This might also explain why it's only noticeable on top floor.

    Of course it works, anything that inhibits the movement of air will insulate. If insulation didn't work, a lot of insulation companies would be out of business by now. Another vote for earthwool from me, it's great stuff. When I insulated my shed walls I did it in a singlet and without gloves or goggles, I reckon you could sleep nude on it and remain itch free :D I have used this stuff https://www.bunnings.com.au/ametalin-1350mm-x-22-25m-thermalbreak-roof-and-wall-home-insulation_p0811234...

    https://www.bunnings.com.au/ametalin-72mm-x-50m-reinforced-insulation-ducting-tape_p0029077 Clean the insulation and try this. It may be getting hot on edges of the skylights causing the glue on the tape to soften and let go. Apply as much pressure as possible to the tape when applying, if this doesn't work you could try some heat resistant contact cement in a spray can.

    Sit them in the sun for a while to warm up the rubbers to make them more pliable. Or you can use a hairdryer or heat gun to help soften them, just don't get the glass too hot or it may crack.

    There are too many variables, just get 3 or 4 detailed quotes and go from there :2tsup:

    Whitey66 replied to a thread Waterblaster query in Roofing
    You'd have to work out how much water your pressure cleaner uses per minute vs how much detergent is used per minute to get your mixing ratio. If there is nothing mentioned in the manual you may have to do it by trial and error. Also be very careful as water makes a roof very slippery and when it's mixed with a detergent or soap, even more so.

    Correct, but it's good practice not to leave active bus bars exposed when they could have easily been insulated. You could even screw some BP connectors on them to make them safer.

    An even cheaper way would be to swap the cables with a neighbouring RCD, if the same RCD trips its a faulty RCD, if the other one trips it's a circuit problem.
