    We have a corrugated metal roof on our "Florida room" which is attached to our camper, which stays at a camp ground.
    We have a leak, and the way the roof is arched there is no way to tell where the leak is coming from.
    I plan on using a Henry product from Home Depot, that is designed for aluminum roofs, but since the roof is "corrugated", and I cannot walk on it, it will have to be done with a long handle.
    I wish I could just roll out a roll of rubber and cover the whole thing.
    any suggestions?
    I will attempt to attach pictures.
    Thanks
    Barry

    Before you put anything on it is needs cleaning. Bleach and a pressure washer will do. Is this just a single sheet of metal or is there insulation below it?

    Where does this leak show up at? I would think taking a hose to various areas would show the leaks origin before cleaning and coating all that corrugated roofing.

    Try to clean the roof first, then it will be much easier to check it out.

    And yet you tried to find the place of the leak?

    As the guys have already said above, to begin with, it is necessary to clean the roof to find places of leakage completely. And based on this, you can build an action plan. It is important to think through all the details so that unforeseen circumstances do not interfere with you. After all, the replacement and repair of the roof is a responsible matter.
    Not so long ago, my friend decided to make a siding. The easiest way, of course, is to contact a specialist for repairs to the company. I applied for this service to one company. We did everything in a short time and efficiently. Maybe you should also apply.

    Way back when I was a tech in the Army, we used a product designed to seal fuel tanks on the equipment shelters to seal them up from the weather. It was a two-part material, grey in color, smelled horrible until it cured, but stuck to anything, was slightly flexible, and from observation on older equipment, lasted forever. It was listed as 'for professional use only', but you probably couldn't get it easily. This doesn't help much, as I can't remember what the stuff was called, but mention it in that there are products out there that will seal most anything up and it may require a pro to access them.

    Have considered products for RVs since aluminium expands and contracts.
