I was reading the Home Depot ratings of customers who bought the white elastic coatings and several said it "washed" off with rain! Said it needs to cure at least 48 hours. We always used to use the silver/fiber coating, asphalt, stinky stuff. Oil based and seemed to last.

For people on here that have mobiles, what have you stuck with or switched to?

We have begun to use the white. --47.133.xxx.xxx

About five years ago I had the roofs covered with metal, best thing I ever done. Wish I'd done it sooner. Really has prolonged the life pf the home. No more soft spots on the floors, no more brown spots on the ceilings. We also had the under belly replaced and the skirting. These are early 1980s mobile homes on private property. --172.58.xxx.xx

Pat, I used Henry tropicool silicone product on a flat roof. thicker mastic w mesh tape and liquid coat. it's not cheap but cheaper then new roof. when a roofer looked at the roof he cursed because nothing sticks to it. even though I was considering a tear-off the parapet walls would be a problem. that said I'd apply at least 3 coats to ensure the pinholes fill up. others here recommend a different product. tropicool definetly did not wash away. roofer aslo cursed because he had to admit I didn't need a new roof anymore. --172.58.xxx.xx

I had a new metal roof put on my 1976 vintage SW. Best thing I ever did. --71.207.xxx.x

I too have added metal roof overs with 1 overhang. As for the different coatings, I think any of them should inhibit rusting. --149.76.xxx.xxx
