Asked a local mechanic for the charge of repairing a puncture and he says he'd charge a certain amount for simply taking a piece of rubber tube and sticking it over the puncture, or if I would pay him a little bit extra, he'd use a pressing machine to apply a bit of heat to the patch of rubber tube and press it onto the punctured area so that it would be more long lasting.
Is that how punctures are best repaired? With application of heat and pressure? Is it really longer lasting?
Update: This is not a tubeless tyre. He said he'd apply the patch on the tube of the tyre. Similar to how a bicycle tyre tube puncture is repaired.
