Paint to Fix Leaks in Roof
Having suffered from a leaking roof for many years (a roof that has defied all attempts to fix it) my idea is for a product that can be used by anyone. Simply paint on the ceiling of the room below to stop the water coming through.

The products currently available to stop damp penetration simply don't work when water is actively dripping through the roof, so something stronger is urgently required. I don't have the courage to climb a ladder outside and wouldn't know what to do once I got onto the roof. Also, I am tired of paying roofers to fail to fix the roof. I'm sure there are many people in my situation.

I'm aware that this would be a purely cosmetic effect and not a "proper" cure but I'm sure there would still be a healthy market for this. I can't be the only desperate homeowner with a leaking roof who has tried everything and who despairs of ever being able get her bedroom decorations to last longer than one rainstorm!
