It's a shame....That looks like a great house, at least it was at one point. From the photos it looks pretty rough.

Patching small hole in rubber roof?

I've got a small tear/hole in a rubber membrane roof (about 1.5" long x .25" wide).

So I'm wondering for something this small, would a bicycle/car tube repair kit be an option? Any other options much appreciated.

I'm loathe to call a roofer for something this small.

Thanks
