Rubber spray paint, as seen on TV

Has anyone used that rubber spray paint sealer, the one where the guy puts a screen door in the bottom of a boat.??

I bought a can of Rustolium Flexible Rubber Coating Leak Sealer and got a small plastic cup, made a few slits in the sides and bottom and gave it two coats to see what happens. The can says dries to the touch in 2-3 hours and cures in 24 hours. I figured Rustolium is a big name and it might be just as good or better.

I was thinking to mask off anything that could possibly leak on the roof and spray that stuff and after it cures to paint the whole roof with that white elastomeric roof sealer paint.

Any thoughts there????

Sounds like it would be more expensive than doing it with the right roofing material to begin with? Not sure but good luck!

Using leak sealer in a can

I just read a review in consumer reports and it was rated very poorly. Please use the right products on your roof,dicor or Koolseal depending on what type of roof you have. Or price might dictate which one you buy. Use the correct primer and then top coat. Tape off with blue tape where the side of the roof is so you don't slop whereyou don't want the material to go.

There was a report on our local TV in Grand Rapids called "Try it before you buy it" What they don't say is how many cases it took to do that screen door in the boat bottom. It is very expensive and doesn't go very far. It did work on the gutters.
