    No, you will probably have roofing felt on the other side of the timber so
    if you use this method on the timber the water will just go somewhere
    else!

    Ultimate Handyman, I have a big problem…Last house occupiers where
    growing hash industrially , so they tore the felt in various places to
    dissipate heat, smell and condensation in loft. This has resulted in
    something way bigger than a hole to be fixed by flash-band. Could you show
    how to repair say a missing section of felt between rafters (@600mm
    centres) for say a roll length of felt or two? I am thinking of stapling
    breather membrane to rafter edges and overlapping over felt.Would that
    work? By the way following you since about 2006.
    I Could send you photos for better description.

    sharing. I look forward to your response.
