Question Mobile home sealing aluminum roof

What procedures and materials are required to clean and seal a mobile home roof. The temperature in my city is 113 degrees. I need some reflective sealer (brand name) to lower the inside temp. Thank you in advance...

Paint wise you would need to apply a coat of 'Kool Seal' although IMO the off brands do as well. Prep wise just make sure the roof is clean and any cracks or opening seams are sealed with caulk or tar. Although silver paint will reflect the heat it will not insulate the roof. Although more expensive, a better solution would be to install a double roof. With either 'attic space' or added insulation it is a lot more effective in reducing the ceiling temp.
