Smile Mobile home roof addition issues.

I have a mobile home that has a double roof and addition that has a metal roof. Where the two meet we have had some leaking issues and have patched and coated. However the room seems to breath to the point that it raises the roof inches during the heat of the day and undoes the work. How can ventilation be put in the roof of the addition to allow the room to breath without it lifting the roof?

Welcome to the forums!

How is the addition connected to the MH? do they both have similiar roof metal?
Is there any type of attic space over the addition?

The mobile has a double roof and the addition has a standard insulated metal roof. There is no attic space. There must be some way to allow the room to breath without it lifting the roof. I think they are connected with flashing. We put down sealant and white coat.
