liquid rubber?

My mother in law has a screen porch that was enclosed to a florida room.

The roof is made of fiberglass panels that sandwich styrofoam.

There is some leaking from between the panels when it rains.

I saw a product on the net called liquid rubber. It looks very good on the web site, but i would like to know if anyone has actually used this stuff?

It is supposed to be exactly the same as epdm but in liquid form.

Any knowledge of this product would be greatly appreciated.

The whole roof is the plan. It is moderatly pricey stuff.

It works out to about 2 bucks a square foot for a 10 mil thickness.

I will keep asking for a while as we don't want to start the project till the fall becuase it takes 14 hours for it to cure.

It rains almost every day here in Florida this time of year.

Here is a link the web site.

Thanks but it is 3x the price and it will not provide the added sound proofing that the epdm will.

That room gets loud when it rains.

It is in the website.

1 gallon covers 42 square feet at 20 mil for 63 dollars including catalyst and shipping.

5 gallons for 298 bucks.
