Accidentally Used Dicor Non-Leveling Lap Sealant to Replace Roof Vent Cap

So, I was replaced a roof vent cap on my TT and I swear to goodness that I checked that I bought "Self-leveling Lap sealant" but realized after applying the sealant that it was "Non Leveling" instead.

Do I need to start all over and remove the vent cap and the non leveling sealant then reapply with "Self-leveling lap? Or will the non leveling work just not be flat like the self leveling would be? Or can I leave the non-leveling and just apply some self-leveling lap over it?

P.s. I did use butyl tape on the bottom of the cap also to create seal.

Thank you for any advice!

My opinion would be you'll be fine to put some self leveling over top of what you've already put down. Don't see any need to pull the vent back up. Do a hose water test on it just to be sure.

I'd be inclined to just add some self leveling over the top of it just to be safe. That way it can work itself down into any nooks and crannies that might be there.

Go all the way around it with eternabond tape . It’ll work and you never have to recaulk it again. While you’re at it buy enough to do the whole roof on every place where there’s caulk . There are videos showing how to do it I did mine and love it . Still have to clean and treat the roof but no more messy self leveling caulk it’s great stuff
