Question
i bought a house with this type of roof its junk is there some type of coating i can put on this till i can afford a new roof

Answer
Unfortunately, I do not have any ideas for you. I wish I did. The surface of the Ondura product deteriorates after just a few years exposure. Once it begins that process, no coating is going to get good long term adhesion.

If you want a 2 - 3 year repair, you could try an elastomeric coating.

I am sorry.
