Customer Question

I have aluminum siding on my fifth wheel trailer and about 2 feet from the top the lower sheet bubbles out and overlaps the upper sheet . I can work it back under the upper sheet with 2 screwdrivers but I am wondering what I can do to secure that area
so that thes sheets don' t bubble and damage each other?

Please zoom in on the center of this picture. There is a scratch by the problem area.

OK
What I would do for that is clean the area really good and then lay a bead of white silicone on that edge and then smooth it out, if you see any voids add more. Many times for something like this I might also use painters tape on each edge so when you spread the silicone it goes onto the tape and will leave a nice uniform line when the tape is pulled. sealing that will help prevent any water from getting in....
Hope this helps, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
