    just one which some may find usefull.

    clear silicone sealant out of a tube mixed with white spirit anything from 1:3 to 1:5 and upwards can be used to seal and reproof pretty much anything. I used it to reseal some leaky hike tent ground sheets and also an old US butt pack to see if works on permeable stuff which it does so you cold reseal a 58 poncho, waterproof the webbing or even your boots lundhags style.

    it takes a bit of mixing and I used a battery drill in the end but it works in with a paint brush or sponge brush dead easy.

    it would probably work on your shed as well :)
