"Through The Roof" roof sealant.

This past weekend while camping my buddy needed a new end for his sewer hose. We headed to the nearest town to an Ace Hardware. While there I asked if they carried "ProFlex" and told him I was thinking about re-caulking some areas on my TT. He told me about a product that he has used and recommends called "Through The Roof". It is a flexible clear brush on sealant. Just wondering if anybody here has had any experience with it. Thanks for any responses.

Friends of mine used it when a tree branch came through the roof of their house. They were amazed by how well the product worked for them.

Just noticed on another site that someone said this product works great, but unfortunately will not work on rubber roofs. Stated that it says so right on the product. Since there are a lot of rubber roofs out there nowadays, one needs to determine his roof material before purchasing. I would like to find a good product that WILL work on rubber. Anyone know of a good product out there ?

Dicor sealant works great.

Pick up a roll of Eternabond Roof seal tape. The stuff is amazing. I reinforced the cap to roof seal 7 years ago and it's still going strong. Also, excellent for permanent repair of roof tears. I also used it unter the antenna feet from wear while stowed.

I'm a bit late here to reply...I'm Charis w/ Sashco. We make Through the Roof! There is still some of the outdated packaging out there, but it is indeed OK to use Through the Roof on rubber roof membranes. Just be aware that, over time, Through the Roof can wrinkled the rubber a bit. It's generally not noticeable, nor does it affect the seal - it will stick stick like nothing else.

Thought you all would want to know. We have updated our packaging to say that it's OK on rubber roof membranes, but it always takes a bit for it to make its way out into the stores.

If you have more questions, feel free to PM me.

Thanks!
