TAR! Huh! What is it good for?

Well,

There's plenty of uses for roofing mastic; like sealing the shingles to the sides of a valley, hand-sealing shingles when it's too cold for them to activate, daubing exposed fasteners, etc., but I think "tar" has pretty limited applications, no?

Ok, I get it. What I called "tar" is actually asphalt based roofing mastic.

But that's the same goop that we see on homeowner patch jobs, so I thought that was what he was talking about.

A bucket of real tar needs to be heated before you can use it.

Then you could tar and feather somebody and run them out of town on a rail. You'd have to really dislike that person, I would think. [:)]
