Hope this is the right place to ask. Does anyone have any experiece with the peel and seal roofing material from MFM Building Products Corp? The product looks good and seems to be just the right product for an older mobile home. Any comments gladly accepted!

I was previously unaware of this product and am glad you mentioned it. No personal experience with it. Remember, it bonds to whatever is immediately below it. If dirt and dust, the wind will carry it away. The roof surface must be squeaky clean before application. Pressure washer? Looks as if the cost of the product will be a bit over $1.00 per square foot.

RE: Peel and seal roofing

Thanks for the response. You are correct about the product. I am in the process of having it installed on my mobile. Well, I haven't signed the contract yet but the product looks very promising. The manufacture warrants the product for 10 years and the installing company warrants it for an additional 10 years. All of the things you mentioned have been addressed and looks like the product will solve many little problems with my 20 year old home. Thanks again for the quick reply. I will let you know what happens.

RE: Peel and seal roofing

I've had experience with both the "textured" variety, which is designed to replace conventional rolled roofing, and the "smooth" variety, which is installed only as an ice and water shield under other roofing material.

The peel-and-stick roofing is great, but, as said by others, the surface must be smooth, free of dirt, and installed by someone who knows what they're doing. The roll that I have (still have a bit left over) is pretty thick material, and has the asphalt-type surface that normal shingles have, although not in a "tab" pattern.

I actually managed to install some in the valley of an old 5-V tin roof on an old building to eliminate a leak when "roof-jack tar" wouldn't work, and it worked great. I wouldn't recommend it, but it was an emergency repair, and won't make much difference on that particular building.
