Ooooo! As noted, I like that idea. That bracket looks rock solid... Thank you for the photo evidence. I'm gathering a long list of great possibilities from this forum!

For the record, this is supposed to be a nice, moist climate.

Another late post but still may help.

I use vinyl for my coverings and when patches are needed I use small scraps of the same material. The best vinyl cement is HH-66 you can order it from many places (HH-66 32.oz [HH-66 32 oz.] - $34.99 : Light Feet Yurts, Portable Yurt) but probably wont be able to find it at any hardware store or such. I do most of my patching from the inside unless it is a large hole like replacing a stove jack vent hols.

I've got that very same thing sitting on my kitchen counter right now. I'm glad I waited before fixing the roof Now I'm going to use it to turn the ex-roof into a bed-liner for my *new* 2000 Insight.
Internet sales sites note that H-66 is good for everything from manufacturing and repairing shoes to constructing oil derricks, so I don't think it's going to go to waste before I build the replacement yurt.

Default Re: A hole in the Roof

In the Burning Man community we make a lot of roofs out of recycled billboard vinyl. It only lasts a few years (at least in Texas) but it's cheap and widely available. The thing we often use to glue it is Oatey X-15 shower pan adhesive. It's messy and you have to be careful not to use too much, but it creates a watertight bond on many kinds of vinyl. I've used it on my yurt roof(s) for over 8 years and never had a leak that was caused by adhesive failure. It's usually available at most big box hardware stores. I replace my billboard vinyl roof about every three years.
