Using Eternabond To Fix A Leaky Playhouse

You’ve bought a great playhouse for your kids to use in your backyard, but every time it rains the toys and chairs inside the house get wet.  In order to keep rain from leaking down into your playhouse take some Eternabond and place it over the seam of the roof that is leaking.  Here is what I did to keep my daughter’s playhouse water tight.

Note: I used Eternabond RoofSeal to flash this joint.  This works great because all I need is some counter flashing on the roof. If you want to mold into the ridges on the roof you could use Eternabond WebSeal.

What You Need To Do:

  1. Gather your materials: 6″ Eternabond (4″ will also work), scissors, EternaPrime (optional), roller (optional)
  2. (Optional) Spray EternaPrime over the area which you are going to lay the Eternabond.  Let it flash off for 1 – 2 minutes.
  3. Stick your Eternabond over the seam that is letting water into the playhouse
  4. Apply pressure to the Eternabond.  If you have a roller, use it.  If you don’t, just use your hands and press hard.  The more and harder your press the better and longer Eternabond will stick.  Pressure is what activates the Eternabond tape.

Now you should have a water tight playhouse.  If water is leaking in any joints that are at 90 degree angles, you can fill the with Double Stick Eternabond.
