Park next to a tree, houase or block wall. Drill 1/4" hole through the filon (not the plywood). Spray some minimal expanding foam in the hole. Cover the affected area with plywood. Place a few 1X2 braces from the plywood to the wall, wedging it so the filon flattens out. Remove the wood the next day. Caulk the hole.


Ummm...expanding foam is likely to lift an even larger section as it expands with no place to go.

As others have said, there is no good solution.

I would use a good two part epoxy as the "adhesive", not foam.


There is a material called Git Rot that boaters use to repair water damage. I would try that in place of foam.

You also need to find the water leak that caused the damage.

If you can describe in more detail where the bubbles are and how big an area the cover and post some photos you may get better answers as to how to fix it.

Thank you very much for the link. You did a great job that most people would not have went to to repair this. My uncle was a boat builder and I have seen him drill holes and plate both sides and inject resin back into the damage spot.

I got an estimate ten years ago to repair a similar condition and was surprised to find out the expense. I was quoted $1,000 a foot. I sold it and moved on. Bob

Gene, it wasn't me doing the repair. It was another member of Monacoers.

Seems like the OP never returns to threads so it's hard to know if any of this helped.

Without pictures of exactly what the OP is talking about, everything offered here is just WAG's.
