Flex seal roof

Has anybody used "flex seal" to repair a leaky roof?

Use Eternabond. As long as you follow the directions it is guaranteed to work.

Looks like a band-aid repair product. What's the problem you're trying to fix? Photos help.

Leaking around skylight in the bathroom.... look like the caulking needs to be replaced....
My plans are to remove the caulking and replace....
I was hoping the flex seal would work until I have time to do the repair.

The Dicor that is likely sealing it up now is actually fairly easy to remove with a putty knife. Just make sure you don't damage the roof taking it off.

Then just clean up and apply new Dicor. I did both bathroom pipe vents and a small repair to my skylight seal in about 20 min on the roof.

It's not hard at all to do. I wouldn't use a paint on patch as that could likely be even more difficult to remove and repair properly later on. If you're looking for a temporary fix you could always use a small tarp (or plastic) and duct tape. Any residual tape can be removed using denatured alcohol.
