    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.

    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.

    If you are just looking to cover up the stain, then use a non-water-based sealer and then repaint. Any reputable paint outlet will be able to recommend what kind of product to use on a particular medium (drywall, plaster, etc). However, I will advise you to call a specialist or a company in this domain, they will make an inspection and give all the information about your roof. I appealed to the best metal roofing Sydney company for repairing my roof and they made their work qualitatively and I can advise you to call them.
