butyl tape on roof?

So im gonna do some sealing on my roof and the factory "cap" trim that covers the screws along the edges. Can I press butyl down into the edges or will rain and sun ruin the tape being that itll be exposed? Id like to use eternabond it all but yikes thats pricey!

Pricey but works with no worry. The butyl will be a temporary fix and if you do not mind removing it when it fails(hard to do) will save you some money

EternaBond would be the better choice, it's made for sealing RV roofs.

X 2 on the EternaBond tape for a permanent repair.

If you don't want to spend the extra money on EternaBond try ProFlex (liquid). Goes on with a 1 1/2 in paint brush and is self leveling. Clear liquid and easy to apply (wet or dry). When finished just throw away the brush and put can away.

How much prep is there with this? Sounds great
