This video is a complete overview of the Kwik Plug Roof Patch. This is my follow-up video to: Tree Fell On Roof- How To Make A Temporary Leakproof Repair. I will put a link down below and at the end of the video.
Here’s a product description from the manufacturer:
“The Gibraltar Building Products Kwik Plug Roof Patch makes it easy to cover pre-existing holes, 8 in. x 8 in., in your home’s roof, such as vents, or holes caused by storm or animal damage. This patch installs easily with nails and resists cracking and weakening in all temperature extremes. The Kwik Plug is made from durable galvanized steel and OSB.”
-12 in. x 12 in. Patch eliminates the need for cutting plywood
-Resists cracking in extreme cold and weakening in heat
-Intended for holes no larger than 8 in. x 8 in.
-Easily installs with just 8 nails
My overall opinion is that the Kwik Patch works very well and is much faster than trying to frame out the hole and fit in a piece of OSB. This method is very handy because all the work is done on top of the roof and not inside the attic or garage.
