Clean and prepare materials for roof repair
Clean your flat roof.
Use the insulation board, and make triangles the size of the joint where your exterior walls and flat roof meet.
Cut the tar paper into a triangle that will spread over the insulation board, and place into position.
Pick your FURNO 750 attachment.
Heat up FURNO 750 heat gun
Turn the FURNO 750 on and let it heat up. Prop it up on top of its case.
Heat tar paper until adhesive is sticky
Hold the FURNO 750 at an angle to heat the adhesive portion of the tar paper.
Adhesive will adhere once heated through
Once hot, the adhesive will stick to the caulked edges, the insulation board and the flat roof.
Let your heat gun cool
Once cool, remove the FURNO 750 attachment.
