Protection for your camper’s roof translates into protection for your entire RV. Why do we say this? Because the roof is the part of your RV that provides shelter to the electronics, furniture, and other items housed within the interior. It also provides protection to you and your family when you’re using the camper.
If you spring a leak in the roof of your RV, there’s a good chance that if you don’t see it right away, you’ll have damage to other items too. You might have to replace walling inside the camper or flooring. Maybe the leak was right above the television so now you have to buy a new one of those and have the whole thing re-wired. All of this stuff can cost a lot of money and cause you a lot of headaches.
Now you see what we meant by saying protection for your roof means protection for the whole RV. So let’s look at something that will give you added protection for your beloved camper.
A Good Option
You can protect the roof of your RV from leaks, cracks, and other hazards by applying a coating Liquid RV Roof. It’s a protective coating that forms a membrane that is resistant to water, weather, wind, and even UV rays. It’s energy-efficient too so your AC unit and heating system will benefit from the application of this stuff as well.
Does It Matter What Your Roof Material Is?
It does matter what your roof is made of with some products. That being said, you can choose a product that adheres to all roof materials so you don’t have to worry about if it will meet your needs or not. Your best bet is to select an option that works with all of the following RV roof materials:
- Alpha rubber
- Butly rubber
- Hypalon rubber
- Roofs treated with other products
Is This Cost Effective?
Whenever you’re looking at taking on a project like this, it’s normal to wonder if what you’re about to do is going to be cost effective. Or at least it should be part of your thinking process.
We are on the side of yes, applying Liquid Roof is definitely going to be cost effective. We say this because the added protection you’ll get from applying a product like this to your camper’s roof will almost undoubtedly prevent some of the future repairs you would have had if you didn’t paint it on.
Liquid Roof gives you waterproofing, airtight sealing, energy efficiency, UV ray protection, wind resistance, scratch resistance, and staves off cracking. On top of all of that, you’ll have a roof that looks brand new once you’re finished and at a fraction of what it costs to actually have a new roof put on.
Is It Difficult to Apply?
This is one of the best features of Liquid Roof. It is not hard to apply it at all. You’ll start with a clean, dry roof surface. One that has been inspected and all necessary repairs have been completed. You’ll then tape of the area that you will be applying the Liquid Roof to. You’ll use a nap roller and evenly distribute it over the entire surface of the roof, working from the front to the back. Then you can finish up corners, edges, and detailing on roof structures with a paint brush.
Once you’ve covered the entire roof, you need to let it dry and cure for the next 24 hours. All that’s left after that is thanking yourself for making such a good decision for the future of your RV.
