Question DetailsAsked on 5/14/2011

What's the best way to seal aluminum porch?

We added an aluminum porch to our home and with the constant rainy weather and intense sun of South Florida it has deteriorated, so that now water filters in between the panels that make up the roof. We have tried caulking. We have tried sylicone sealants applied from the outside directly onto the roof of the porch. All to no avail. I have heard about a product and a company that advertises nationally on the HG channel that addresses this sort of trouble. Any ideas?

Personally, I question the validity of most super-duper EZ quick fix products touted by HG or TV ad claims. Caulk, silicone, or other sealers will eventually fail unless all preparation/application meets specs. I've found that nasty black goo (Henry's) very satisfactory for some roof repairs, but have never used it on aluminum. Have you consulted a mobile home repair professional?
