The garage roof leaked in several places. I put a coating of Through the Roof, a rubberized roof coating, where I thought it was needed. That slowed the leak down but it did not completely stop it.

Each shelter for the players--the team dugout--is covered with red ONDURA sheets for the roof. We are proud that ONDURA was [...]

That worked so well that they bought more sheets and used them for the roofs on other shelters. 15-year-old ONDURA roof on shelter at archery range [...]
