Brighton Removal Company guide to Leaks

Leaks are very common, especially in a working van that is filled to the brim every day. If the leak is on the roof then the best thing you can do is get a fiber glass kit from your local branch of Halfords and follow the instructions carefully.

If the leak is on the Metal body then purchase a body repair kit from your local body works shop. This shouldn’t cost you very much. This will do a good job to keep the water out. And because it’s white it will not ruin the aesthetics of the van.

Cover the inside in silicon leak glue for good measure. Unfortunately finding the leak means that when its raining ( or soon after ) you will have to get into the back of the van and feel around where you suspect the leaks are. Try and park under a street light so that if you have to go out at night you can see what you are doing!

When you have located your leak areas wait until the rain has stopped and dry the problem areas.

Use some all weather silicon drainage glue in a gun pointed at the affected area until you cannot see the leak.

Wait for this to dry. Usually about 3-4 hours. Then apply another layer. Repeat this a few times until you are confident that no water will come through.
