Flex Seal Customer Reviews
Jessica Rexford ( Calgary, AB )
Living in a century-old house, I have come to dread the rain and snow. After every downpour and snowfall, I would have to endure pumping out around 200 gallons of water due to my leaky basement. I’ve tried many products such as Dri-Loc and some waterproofing materials, but to no avail. I had seen Flex Seal’s infomercial, but I wasn’t exactly keen on the idea of spending $20 for it. I took a gamble when they sold a can for $12.99 at a local store, and I tried it on areas where the water might have been coming from. For the first time in 30 years, I was finally able to appreciate the beautiful sound of the rain and the sight of snow falling without worrying about my basement. After seeing amazing results, I did the smartest thing – I bought a couple more cans of Flex Seal.

Flex Seal does exactly what it claims to do and is also so simple to use. You just have to spray it on, wait for it to dry, and then you’re good to go. Stopping leaks has never been this easy!
Jonathan Conner ( Abbotsford, BC )
I’m not the type who swallows commercials and promotions hook, line, and sinker. And so, I didn’t actually consider Flex Seal to be anything special. But then I needed to fix the leaking roof of a commercial building, and I figured there’s no harm in trying something that might make my job easier. I coated all hundreds of screws that needed some attention and waited to see if they would be able to hold their ground come heavy rains. Heavy rains poured a few days ago, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that –voila- there wasn’t a single drip inside!

Now there’s no reason to be all skeptic about Flex Seal’s ability to repair anything, particularly boats. I used 2 coatings to patch up a few small holes in my jon boat and five hours later, I was able to take it to the lake without worrying a thing about leaks. This product certainly deserves an A++.
Annette Woodson ( Lakeshore, ON )
If a leak in your roof keeps pestering you time and time again, this product may be right for you. I tried this on mine and the result was great! This product comes in liquid form so for best results ( and to avoid unnecessary disappointment )don’t start testing this without letting it solidify first.
Jade Trent ( Brampton, ON )
One tricky thing about this product is that if you’re not too careful, it has a tendency to overspray, spreading onto the parts you’re not supposed to coat. But overall, I found the product easy to use and effective.
Cassandra Donovan ( Montreal, QC )
The leak in our travel trailer had been a constant problem for us. In fact, we tried everything to fix it – yes, every sealant and caulk out there. After all that wasted effort, it’s amazing how one good coating of Flex Seal solved our problem in a jiffy. Our trailer has been leak-free since then!
Edna Landry ( Winnipeg, MB )
Rain or shine, I thought I could stay comfortably in my attached sunroom. Imagine my surprise when, one day, as I was enjoying the scenery along with the shelter it provided, I felt raindrops falling on my head. It did seem ironic; it was raining in my sunroom. Anyway, I found a leak on my roof and I needed to fix the problem fast. Unfortunately, it took me dozens of products – all of which failed – before finding the solution. Flex Seal solved my problem and now I have a functional sunroom once again.
Roland Hundley ( Queens, NS )
I don’t always get to say this about products, but Flex Seal is as effective as they make it out to be in their advertisements. Overall, this sealant is great to use. You don’t need to be an experienced repairman to learn how to use it. It’s very easy to apply – you just have to spray it all over the leak. Just follow the instructions and shake it well before using. Plus, it can be easily covered with paint if you find it necessary. I wouldn’t mind spending a little more to purchase more cans.
Alexandra Crowell ( Edmonton, AB )
Initially, I bought this product to seal our vents in order to prevent water from entering every time it rains, and it did exactly just that. Now, we have tried using this on other projects as well and I can simply say that I am truly amazed by this remarkable innovation.
Kim Pritchard ( Ottawa, ON )
Is this product effective? Yes, it definitely is. Is it enough to cover a large area? Unfortunately, you’ll need more than a can to do so. Although it worked very well in stopping some leaks, it wasn’t able to cover an entire area for me. The good news though is they offer two cans for a price of $20.
Kyle Eckart ( Saint John, NB )
I had a crack in my gutter which I needed to fix. Replacing it would have been too expensive so I tried using Flex seal instead. With 3 coats, it was able to survive the next rainstorm. In another place at home, I used it to fill in a big hole. I covered the hole with a glossy paper first before spraying it on the paper and its surroundings. Now that spot is completely free from water penetration. Don’t get discouraged by its price. It’s actually worth the cost as it saves you the trouble of getting a repairman or buying even more expensive materials.
Rafael Thedford ( Surrey, BC )
Kudos to Swift Maintenance for selling a product that works wonders in real life as much as in their infomercials. I used 2 coatings of Flex Seal and I never had to worry about my leak again. So far, it has withstood different weathers, temperatures, and conditions. I am definitely satisfied with this product.
Nikki Coles ( Lethbridge, AB )
Leaks and holes are not the only things Flex Seal can fix. Surprisingly, it was able to do a great job on my rubber boots. However, its black color is sure to leave an obvious stain. So I think flex seal can make your footwear functional, but not exactly fashionable.
Donnie McCarter ( Saskatoon, SK )
I must admit their famous infomercial got me into purchasing Flex Seal. A product that’s effective for sealing screen doors and fixing boats? I couldn’t resist trying it. I bought the product and started using it in something small for now, which is a minor leak in my shed. I’m happy to say Flex Seal did its job well.
Tristan Garber ( Victoria, BC )
Flex seal is exactly what the advertisements say it is—easy to use, cost effective, weather-proof, etc. All in all, I can say that I am content with what this product has to offer.
Lorelei Hendrickson ( Oakville, ON )
I got hold of this product through a swap meet with an “As Seen on TV” vendor. I had a leaky roof and I actually had a problem locating where the leak was. I’ve tried using other products before, but Flex Seal did the job on filling the tiny spaces. After years of frustration, Flex Seal finally sealed the deal for me.
Arvin Kelson ( Edmonton, AB )
Like most products, I discovered flex seal through an infomercial. There was a roof leak on the east side of our building so we decided give it a try. Thankfully, this product was effective and we were able to fix our roof leak problem.
Mary Ann Ladner ( Kingston, ON )
I have been living with a leaky basement for about a decade and I swear I would do anything to stop all those annoying leaks once and for all. I am so happy I finally tried using this product because it did exactly what I have been hoping it to do. Multiple cans would just be necessary to ensure that the entire leaky area is covered.
I think I now have full confidence to say that I will definitely recommend Flex Seal to anyone. Without a doubt, this is one product that really works for me. Yes, it might seem pricey, but I can assure you that it is totally worth it. Now that it’s being sold at more and more retail stores, I’m glad more people will get to try and see how effective this “handyman in a can” is.
Erica North ( Toronto, ON )
Are you looking for a good sealant to fix water leaks? One that is cost-effective, reliable, and weather proof? Fortunately for you ( and for me! ) , Flex Seal Canada is here. I came across this product while searching for ways to fix a water leak problem in our home. According to its website, it can patch up practically anything – roofs, gutters, water pools, you name it. Being a liquid rubber sealant, it can easily mold into the shape of the hole, leak, or crack, making it very effective. And here’s more, this $19.99 product can help save money spent on energy bills during summer and winter just by simply patching up air leaks. There’s no need to hire costly contractors and repairmen to fix your leaks. All you’ll need to do is take out this handy sealant.
Stephen Couch ( Vancouver, BC )
Having multiple leaks is not a simple problem at all. For one, it almost drove me to the edge as I wasted a huge amount of money on repairman after repairman just trying to get my roof fixed. Each rainy day meant that I had to prepare my buckets for the leaks and prepare myself for the wrath of my wife. That one time when it rained heavily, I had to catch the leaking water with 20 gallon containers. Suffice to say, I found it impossible to believe that a little can of sealant could solve all of that. But then what more could I lose, right? I spent around an hour applying two separate coatings, then braced myself for the next rainy day and waited for the moment of truth. And now, I came here to testify that Flex Seal is the real deal! No words can describe how much this made my life easier. It practically saved my marriage! I’m now ready to fix all problematic spots in my house with more cans of Flex Seal. I would buy this product again and again and I’m looking forward seeing it sold in stores.
Nancy Mayfield ( Halifax, NS )
Flex seal is definitely THE “handyman in a can”. When it comes to fixing leaks, I strongly suggest you buy Flex seal. It will help you save time, money, and effort.
Aaron Thomsen ( Regina, SK )
Unfortunately, covering large holes is not exactly Flex Seal’s forte. It is designed for smaller leaks and cracks. But I do have some suggestions that might be helpful to future users. If you have a large area to cover, it may require multiple sprays to cover the area fully. Also, take note that size matters in this case. The size of the leaks will determine how many coatings you’ll need to effectively cover them. Lastly, a very important thing to remember is to spray the sealant evenly into leaks to ensure that the entire area is covered and to avoid further breakage in the future.
Jordan Hanna ( Richmond, BC )
Using Flex seal is as simple as they say. Just shake it carefully, spray it, and your problem is solved. However, that is not always the case for some customers. The act of spraying can sometimes become an added problem. Sometimes the coat applied is too much or too little. It is advised that spraying should be done twice ( not too thin, not too thick ) and that reapplying should be done only when the seal has dried.
Like all products, this one has its shortcomings. Due to its spraying mechanism, oftentimes the seal is applied onto parts where it is not needed. So here’s a tip: before spraying the sealant onto the chosen part, try covering its surrounding area with old newspaper.
Lorenz Jeffries ( Red Deer, AB )
This rubber spray is absolutely effective. Leaks and cracks, big and small, Flex Seal got it covered. It fills up cracks efficiently so you get to cover the area completely. Now that it’s thoroughly sealed, you won’t have to worry about water penetration. This innovative sealant is also effective in covering holes in pipes. And a plus factor is that it can also cover rust and prevent further corrosion.
Kevin Browne ( Fredericton, NB )
It doesn’t matter whether the area is wet or dry; the sealant will still work. However, that doesn’t mean that whether the area is clean or dirty, it will still do its job. Users must always keep in mind to rid the area of dirt and debris before spraying or else the sealant won’t work.
