I have just aquired a boler that needs a small repair on th eback roof I think a tree fell on in the winter
By a small repair, is it just cracked or is there a hole right thru it? I work with fiberglass and repairs can be easy if time is taken and the right products are used.
<blockquote>Cracks that do not go all the way thru can be filed into a V grove and filled with Epoxy/resin/Fillet sulution and sanded smooth. Cracks that go all the way thru need this V grove method done then an inside and outside skin (see below) to help stiffen the area
</blockquote>Holes have to be cut out to an area that was not damaged then the edges of hole, inside and out, scuffed up then a single layer of wetted, 6oz fiberglass,2 to 3 inches bigger then hole, can be applied to inside( messy job)... after it has 100% cured go to outside and start to fill in with more layers of glass until hole is built up to level, letting layers cure... once it is filled lay an outer layer like the insde layer. Let cure and sand to nice finish.
<blockquote>Finish is always a problem with the Boler
because it is not paint
(unless somebody painted it) on the outside. It is an inpregnated color into the gelcoat and may be hard to match but at least the trailer will be back into one shell</blockquote>
