Any Actual Use opinions for ScotchGard on the top?
Over the past few couple years I've noticed a bit of wear occurring on the sides of the top; a horizontal roughing about 5 inches across. I figured using some RaggTopp I already had to "treat" just the abrasions, but initially couldn't find the can. On a whim, I bought ScotchGard, but then found the RaggTopp and used that.
The treated areas reject water beautifully, and to my mind that means water-borne contaminants can't permeate the cloth. So, wanting now to treat the whole roof, is it ok to use the ScotchGard? I'm not concerned with removing overspray, as my application method has been to spray a sponge and daub it on.
Thanks in advance.
