Default sealed the roof yesterday

well most of it anyhow. what a pain. I live with a friend who bought a mobile home. Its on the older side of things so it still has the aluminum roof. it leaks in one of the rooms so we figured we had better seal it up again. i hope i never have to walk on one of those roofs again. never have i felt something flex under me so much. i've walked roofs a lot before being a window cleaner for two years but this was scary. i was using a half sheet of plywood to stand on... all i have to say is i hope that crap works!!!

If you did it right, it does. I grew up in a trailer (suprise, suprise!!). Actually, we had two hooked together. 6 bedrrom, 4 bath redneck mansion!



Green arrow - House I grew up in where my baby sister lives now
The house to the right is my parents' new house
The house to the south (bottom) is my brother'* house
1200 miles north, me!!

As afr as I know, there is no interbreeding....

Was it the black goo, or the silver goo??

According to my dad, in any place you can actually stand to live in a trailer, you want to use silver. Helps reflect the heat instead of sucking it in.

Unfortinualy it was the black goo. they make what they call "liquid Air conditioning" you can put on top of it to reflect the heat. i couldn't find any place localy that had the silver stuff.
