Look for a product called mobile home roof sealant. It rolls or brushes on.

Regardless what you do, roll roofing is at best a temporary roof and has a fairly short life span.

I'd say that roof coating on the rolled roofing was like putting lipstick on a pig, but that would be offending both the lipstick and the pig.

I've got two rolled roofs this week I have to rip off, both lasted about 5 years. I have a roofer coming to install EPDM instead.

Roll roofing?

"Roll roofing" is a pretty vague term. Could be a regional thing, but down here you'll never hear a Miami roofer use that phrase. Too general. Putting roof cement ON anything truly is like peeing upwind.
