How can I stop leaks on porch


I am totally frustrated trying to find leaks on my back porch. I have re-shingled the roof for the 4th time only to find out after todays rain that I have more leaks than before (grrr). I feel so overwhelm that I just want to apply some tarp or any kind of sealant over the shingles to stop the leaks.

So, can anyone recommend a good sealer that I can used or tell me if I can use 201 Henry Tarp?, or what can I do in order to stop those leaks.

Shingles aren't the answer. Neither is a tarp, nor ANY type of sealant.
Get some SBS modified roofing from your supplier and the instructions. You must use the nailable base, the inter-ply, and the cap sheet. Simple fix. Don't forget to remove shingles as necessary where it joins the house nad reinstall after you run the SBS 3' up the house roof.

TINNER666- SBS modifying roofing is the same thing as flashing??? Also what you mean by inter-ply and cap sheet

SBS is the roofing material for flat or lo-slope roofs. If shingles aren't working, they must NOT belong there. SBS sounds like the correct fit.
Just two brands.
