Is your roof sealant "slopped on"?

I took a closer look at my roof today. Where the rubber meets the front aluminum siding there is a seam, and a whole bunch of sealant just slopped along it, some areas with excess and some areas where it hasn't completely covered whatever is underneath. Is this normal? Anyone else's like this?

Very typical of all brands. I checked mine during PDI and found some areas well covered and others were missing sealant. I corrected prior to delivery... In fact, I found several voids in the front cap, around openings, and so on - all told I used a 1/2 tube of caulking to correct it.

Thats a sloppy darn job. Nope, mine doesn't look like that. You think your dealer would have noticed it! I just got up on my roof this past week with a tube of dicor self leveling and went over any areas that I felt it would help. Mostly around the tv antenna.

It's not that sloppy. There's no way to apply a self-leveling sealant neatly, and actually, there's no need to. As long as it flows over the seam, that's what counts.

Mine looks nothing like that. I know it won't hurt anything, and more is better than not enough, but someone certainly didn't take their time. I re-did some places this past week(went over what was there), took my time, and it came out real well.

Mine "kinda" looks like that. I dont really care what the top of mine looks like just as long as it dosent leak. In your pic it looks like someone went over the existing lap sealant with another coat which is normal for a real seal/touch up.
