Own your RV for any length of time, and you’ll come to realize that repairs are not just necessary, but more common than you might have supposed. Even if you don’t suffer scratches, gouges or cuts from branches and other threats, your roof will naturally wear over time. As the rubber wears away, the roof thins. Eventually, you will end up with leaks even without a force-based puncture causing one. When this happens, you have the option of repairing using Liquid Roof, or one of the competing products. How does Liquid Roof stack up against the competition?
One area where Liquid Roof wins out with no competition is in waterproofing. This material is waterproof from the second you apply it to the roof of your RV. That means that rain won’t stop you in your tracks during the repair. In contrast, other rubber roofing repair products are water-based, and will need to be completely reapplied if they get wet. If they get wet during the curing process, there’s the chance for damage and the need for reapplication as well.
Ease of Application
A great thing about Liquid Roof is that it is so easy to apply. Most customers simply mix the activator in, and then pour it onto the roof. A roller and/or squeegee will do the trick for spreading. You just need to spread it evenly over the roof.
A true test of the value of any roof repair product is how long you can go between applications. With most competing products, you will have a few years of life and then need to apply it again. However, Liquid Roof is good for a minimum of five years at the lowest end, with some applications lasting many times longer than that. This allows you to apply fewer coats and enjoy the use of your RV without constantly worrying about whether or not you need to apply a roof repair product every year.
The amount of prep work needed varies more by the type of roofing system you have than by the type of roof repair you’ll be applying. In all instances, the roof needs to be completely clean and free of debris. Some roofs will need a cleaner/primer applied to remove all remnants of the old roof coating as well. It also pays to inspect all the caulking while you’re on the roof, as this will often need to be reapplied every year. A proactive application now may save you time in a few months.
Ultimately, Liquid Roof is one of the best options for repairing or reroofing your RV. It offers outstanding resilience to heat and cold, as well as to UV rays. It remains flexible, which means that it can handle expansion and contraction due to heat or cold, and can also handle the stresses of roofing on a moving vehicle. It’s also easy to apply, immediately waterproof, and will sustain no damage if it gets wet while curing.
