Anyone try Flex Seal rubber spray to seal roof leaks? If you watch the TV ads it's the best thing for waterproofing all types of surfaces. Even makes a truck float! I was thinking of using it to seal roof vents.

I used the rustoleum brand sold at walmart and am very pleased. Used it early this year, and have had no leaks since. Not sure how long it lasts, but it has worked for us.

NO!!!!! Flex Seal has a pertrolum disalate in it. Read the label. IT WILL melt the rubber membrane that the roof material is made of!!!!! Be VERY carefull what you use on those rubber roof.

Is the petroleum distillate persistent, in that it remains, or is it used as a primer/solvent for the Flex Seal to adhere to the surface?

Just wondering?

Disk Doctr:
Thanks for correcting my spelling. To answer your question - IT WILL MELT THE RUBBER ROOF!!! Google RV rubber roof repair. Many sites will tell you not to use anything with PD in it.

It will deteriorate within 6 months. Garbage.... Used it on my house roof and it was gone within 6 months.

We tried it in an industrial setting to seal machine drip pans. We've tried the TV version and Rustoleum, it is junk and will not hold under use.

My roof was leaking anyway - just couldn't afford to replace it at the time. I not only used the rustoleum, but I did put down 2 coats of the rubber roof seal (Home Depot) and then the rustoleum. Seems to have fixed the problem.
Makes me wonder why they stopped making a metal roof??
Also, has anyone replaced their roof with the new Rhino-liner that I see advertised in Trailer life?
