I've tried the various roof coating on the sheet metal roof of my my '75
double wide and just haven't really found anything that really covers/seals
well.. The Latex stuff is crap when it comes to ponding water and once you
have it on, no other material will bond over it..
I want to pressure strip all the old crap off and start from the bare metal.
The metal is still solid but there are a few known and (many unknown )places
that the water manages to get in. The roof has very little pitch and the
metal is continious flat sheets, factory joined to form a continious sheet
from one end to the other.. I think some of the factory joints are leaking..
I hear about EPDM in liquid form and have been reading the info and it
sounds good.. But will cost about $1600 for the material to cover the whole
I have had several roofing companies give me estimates of $3500 to put a new
roof on.. They want to put 1/2" OSB over the metal and then cover that with
torch down tar/paper. I absolutely don't want that combination on such a
nearly flat roof.
The bottom line here is, the house isn't worth more than $5000 with the a
good roof. I only live in it about half the year.
I guess my question is, has anyone had any experience with the liquid EPDM
rubber roofing material??
