I have heard horror stories of people using other then dicor then can't put dicor over it.

Seal as a stop gap roof leak sealer??

That is a good point. Possible problems bonding. I think I remember putting dicor on top of old dicor without any problems with bonding. Never when it has been peeling, just the odd slight crack, which I thought the dicor would just fill in nicely. So far that seems to have worked in a past problem of this type. More recently, I have slathered on the liquid Flex Seal in about the same thickness of the dicor when it smooths out. I did it around four fittings, two circular pipes, the refrigerator vent, and the shower skylight. I'll get some dicor at the next Camping World I come to, get up there, and experiment a little, and report the results.

Use Eternabond tape. You'll be much happier 10 years later.

Flex Seal as a stop gap roof leak sealer??

We finally arrived back in Central Florida about three weeks after I used Flex Seal to repair a leak in my bathroom sky light and around the refrigerator vent. Camping World was closed on Sundays. We did encounter several storms on the way home and have had several since getting home, and there has been no further leaking. I finally got on the roof a couple of days ago and was pleased to see that the Flex Seal was intact and looked good. No cracking or peeling. I reiterate that I bought the quart can and brushed it on very thickly. Not the spray can. Nonetheless, I did choose to put a layer of dicor on top of the Flex Seal since the Flex Seal had not cracked or peeled in any way. Pic on left is straight Flex Seal. Pic on right is with dicor layered on top of Flex Seal.

Wipe it down with mineral spirits before using Dicor. Not sure about the other products.
