    Just been giving the roof its annual clean and spotted some tree branch damage - see attached image. As you'll see it's about the size of a finger nail and perhaps 2mm deep. Can anyone tell me which filler I should use? I don't really need to match the paint but after its been rubbed down I guess it will need a couple of coats to seal it. Is that right?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    I would use Plastic Padding's "Gel Coat Filler", brilliant stuff can be used on most surfaces sticks to anything, it's designed for gel coat repairs on boats most yacht chandlers stock it or ebay.
    Used it to repair my stone resin shower tray in the house, I've used it for all sorts of jobs over the years & it's never let me down.
