Truck trailer advice needed


Recommended Posts

Hi,
I have a large, old semi-truck box trailer that has begun to leak at the metal seams in the roof.  Of all the different materials (tars, rubber materials, truck bed liner materials etc) available. what is recommended to coat the roof with that will seal and hold up to the hot sun, high winds, rain, snow and freezing hard hail the best?  Hopefully something easy to apply that will last my lifetime.  I'm too old to ever have to do this again.
Thank you for your recommendations.
Steve

I get so many conflicting answers and every manufacturer says their product is the best and their procedure is the only way to do it properly, I don't know what to believe . . . doesn't anyone on this forum know anyone who has had any experience with trailer roof repairs??

I have a couple of old semi trailers that I use for storage. They both came with a few leaks in the roofs. I used roofing tar, just spread with a putty knife for the small leaks, larger holes I used some sheet aluminum patches screwed down, sealed with tar.

Henry’s makes some stuff that looks like white shaving cream. 

Goes on super easy and then dries to a rubbery consistency. 

I’ve used it to seal up roofs on steel shipping containers with good results.
