    I am located in Ontario and I am looking for a rubber paint/sealant to put on the roof of my Fleetwood Bayiner. What are the preferred products that we can get at Home Depot/Lowes/Walmart/Canadian Tire in Ontario?

    Thanks!!

    Depends what you want. Liquid Rubber will sit on top of the roof and could (will) eventually peel. Sealkrete is thin like water, soaks in and will never peel. I have even mixed 20% white outdoor latex into the Sealkrete and it made my roof look like new. I camp in the desert a lot and and the sun is brutal to roofs...

    I am first trying move all this caulking and it is tedious. I would like to have a nice clean surface to start. I am using a heat gun and scraper.

    I second the SealKrete. Mixed a quart with 1/4 cup exterior white paint. What a difference! Water beads up, and the color is so much whiter. You can go heavier with the paint but a little goes a long way. I applied 2 coats, and have plenty left for next year.

    That roof is an Alumi-Tite roof. It's 3 sections of aluminum, with the seams being covered by the roof rack rails. That roof leaked notoriously, hence, someone gooped something along the edges of the roof rack rails to keep the water out.

    After I clean it all up, I will put some rubber tape over those rails. I don't think I will use the rails for anything.
