What I'm mostly concerned with is what this is going to look like, how long it will last, and what it will do to my resale value?
If it was mine I would ask what is making it crack every 4 ft?
Is the metal frame flexing or is the thin fiberglass roof cracking there the two pieces of plywood meet. As long as the stuff under the fiberglass is solid I would suggest this stuff.
If it was me I would install this stuff instead of bars across the roof.
This is Eternabond
. This stuff will seal the possible crack and will still flex with the roof. It comes in different widths 2", 4", 6"
and come in different lengths. It is expensive but if you clean the area and apply correctly no water will ever penatrate that area. It can be removed but will take a long time. So plan ahead and do it by the book.
Here is a link to show you waht it is.
EternaBond RoofSeal PLUS
This is where I buy it and it is the cheapest I can find on the web.
50ft x 4" rolls.
You can call them and ask questions or email at
It also is great over existing caulked seams. This stuff is a killer and I swear by it.
Any questions ask.
