Not to worry. You can pop a fibreglass style repair patch over the hole to completely seal it. These are called SpeedPatches and they're perfect for covering holes in asbestos roofs and remaining waterproof in the long run. Having been used for years to seal holes in roofs of all kinds, they're backed up by a reliable service history. Plus they're super easy to use.
The SpeedPatches can be cut to size and used on holes from miniscule sizes up to 22cm x 12cms, although the bigger the size the less the SpeedPatch has to grip onto either iside of the hole, which could affect longevity. There are three different sizes of kit so you can find the perfect match for your project.
As well as SpeedPatches, you'll need some A-Clean and UV Curing resin to properly prepare the area. You can get everything you need, as well as gloves, brushes and a guide with the Asbestos roof and gutter hole repair kit.
