The roof is a very important, yet neglected part of many RVs today. If you are an RV owner, and you haven’t looked on your roof recently, it might surprise you to see there’s a bit of damage up there. This damage can cause holes, and those holes will mean leaks whenever it rains. Even the dew can start to get into the roof and cause problems for your vehicle. Whether you have a problem with a leak already, or you want to take some early precautions, Liquid Roof will be a great EPDM choice that has quite a few benefits. Namely, it is cost effective and easy to use. Azom.com has some great information on EMPDs.
On Your Own or With Help?
One of the first things you need to do is figure out whether you want to add the Liquid Roof on your own or whether you want to hire someone to do it for you. Hiring someone else to take care of the coatings is a good choice for those who do not have the skill or desire to do it alone. However, many will find it’s an easy to handle process. This is true even if they do not have much experience with do-it-yourself projects. It is a relatively simple DIY project with a few basic steps.
Prepare the Roof
First, make sure you know the size of your roof so you can have enough of the Liquid Roof product on hand. You will only need to have one coat, so factor that into your calculations. It is also important to prepare the roof during this time. This means you need to clean off the roof and make sure it does not have any debris or grit on it. Adding the rubber when the roof still had debris on it would compromise the coating’s integrity. Clean it properly and then let it dry. Then, make sure the weather will be at least 55 degrees during the day so it can set and cure properly.
Applying the Liquid Roof
The application is actually very simple. You can use either a paintbrush or a paint roller to handle the job. Both work quite well, but it may be a good idea to have both options. A large roller with different sized handles can make quick work of some of the larger areas on the RV’s roof. In the case of the smaller and tighter areas, the paintbrush might be a better option. Try to get an even coat across the entire roof so that it has a nice and uniform look.
Have Peace of Mind
Once you use a high quality coating like Liquid Roof for your RV’s roof, it will let you rest easy. You can be sure you will not have any unexpected and unwanted leaks when you take your RV out on your next great adventure. This is a great feeling no matter where you decide to take your RV, even if it’s to the rainy Pacific Northwest.
