Sealant for exposed fastener metal roofing?


I have a small shed I am roofing with exposed fastener metal panels and a couple of the three foot wide panels will need to overlap with each other. Is it necessary to run a bead of some sort of sealant along the length of the two panels that I need to overlap? If so, can anyone recommend what to use?
Thanks

Use whatever the manufacturer recommends.

They should have some sort of indicated or approved material on the installation instructions.

If not, call them.

There's a bunch of differant styles of metal roofing you could be talking about.
Most need no sealers because the ridges over lap to prevent water from getting in.
Corragated and 5 V need no sealer.

Thanks. The panels are Ameri-Drain style from ABC Metal Roofing. They have half-inch ribs every 6 inches.
