Porch Leaks During Heavy Rain

Hi,

I have a back porch which is corrugated aluminum which leaks at the seams during heavy rains. The roof is angled, and it only leaks at the lower side of the seems, but not from every seam.

Is there something I could apply to the top of the seams to seal them?

Thanks,
---Tom

Not sure what you have there. But you can try home depot and lowes check on the roof coating they have for the metal trailer roofs.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the reply.

I saw in another of your posts you are from WPB. I am also, so maybe that will help in the explaination of my porch . I am probably not describing my porch correctly, but it is a standard screened-in porch built in 1983 ish. I believe it is insulated, and from the top it looks like corrugated aluminum sections about 1 and 1/2 ft wide. If your original answer still applies, then I will give it a try.

Thanks,
---Tom

Id go for it. Its about the same roof coating that you see them use on the cement tile roof down here. I know I had to use it on one home I had here that had the tile roof. Just make sure all dirt is off it and its dry when you put it on .
