Looks like the previous poster said. There is the advantage of cost for this coating if you need to touch it up. Think it is less than $20 a gallon a Home Depot and a gallon goes a long ways. Buy the cheap paint brushes at HD then throw it away when done.

By the way.. the comment in the original post "I guess we don't wax that"

You don't wax the roof, That is one difference between a roof and a kitchen floor.

The reason is if you wax the kitchen floor you may slip and fall and land on your....er... pride.

But if you slip on the roof, you may land on the ground 10+ feet below, and if you land wrong.... Your friends and family will soon gather one final time to honor your life.

Home is where I park it!

My '76 ElDorado has something similar to that on the roof. Unfortunately mine is pealing and is in very poor shape. It's going to get peeled off, cleaned up, and coated with something new.

The wax comment was because you wax a car to help protect it and help with water run off...
The MH is fiberglass I believe except for the Ford Econoline van cab. Can you put something on there meant for aluminum mobile homes? Not that there is any current leak... and I don't want to fix something not broken... it is more gray than silver so I am going to guess it is either a base coat of snow coat or mobile home water proofer stuff...I guess the roof is also fiberglass??? they wouldn't stick a metal roof on a fiberglass body....would they? ( I hate showing how ignorant I am! LOL!)

Besides, how many of your friends and visitors climb a ladder to check out your roof?
