Leaking Arrow Steel Shed Roof

I have an Arrow steel shed and the roof is leaking whenever it rains. Any suggestions from owners of this model of steel shed on what to do to waterproof the roof? Link to roof model is here.

I assume it is leaking around some of the bolt holes. I would use a few daps of a tar type roof leak stopper (Leak Stopper). Avoid silicone caulks they sometimes come unstuck after a year in the weather. There are also some high quality tapes that have a thick sticky tar backing and a heavy aluminum foil front. Clean the leaking area very well, cut a section of the tape and press it down over the leak.

If your roof is old, rusty and leaking from several spots I would wire brush the worst areas and pressure wash the whole roof if possible. Patch the leaking spots with the tar based tape. Prime the roof with Rustoleum rusty metal primer (red brick color) and then finish with a couple coats of Cool Seal (which is white).
