uksteve,

Be sure what ever paint you use is compatible with aluminum, if in fact you have an aluminum roof. Some roofs are rubber, some are fiberglass.

I used this on aluminum roof on Holiday Rambler. Actually reduced heat load in interior.

I too have an Aluminum roof that will soon need to be repainted, and have been looking at options. I would be careful about using Topside as it is mainly for fiberglass

Itís stated aluminum too. Itís very good, hard, I applied 2 coats, so have many members on IRV. Look up thread youíll see the folks that have used the product. My roof on 2008, is fiberglass.

But does it give the waterproofing seal as well
Some of the flat roof paints waterproof as well
Such as Rust-Oleums noxyde peganox
Which is what they use on bridges etc
They say itís very good for coastal areas which is were we live in cornwall
I will be doing the roof in Spain in the winter so plenty of time to find the right one
