I've got some mobile homes - I regularly have to use white elastomeric roof
coat to prevent leaks. After a few years, the roof coat turns
brownish-black and looks pretty poor.
Is there anything I can use to seal these roofs permanently -- something
that's absolutely waterproof that will not look tragic after a few years?
i'm sure there must be some brands of the white trailer coating
that will retain their color better...there's one called
"kool seal" or "kool cost"
another product that is NOT elastomeric is made by
henry's and is an aluminum colored emulsion, but not
a normal emulsion, it is much better, i can't recall name
but have used it, it is thin bodied and is very sticky to all surfaces, and
to retain the aluminum color very well...
Cool seal is what's usually put on in the plants, but it's not permanent by
any means. About the only thing that I've seen that would be close to what
your looking for is a "liquid" form of EPDM. It's not inexpensive, but would
probably outlast what your currently using. I haven't used it, but my firm
has done extensive work within the Manufactured Housing Industry and are
familiar with its properties.
Here's a link to one such manufacturer: http://www.buyliquidroof.com /
