Whether you have leaks in your roof that you need to repair right now, or you are just looking for a form of preventative measure to keep your roof and your RV in good shape, Liquid Roof repair products are a good solution. They can provide your RV with the added protection it needs from the elements, and it is even resistant to ozone and UV radiation.
Know the Damage
Most of the time, the liquid repair product will be enough to take care of the leaks in your roof. However, that might not always be the case. You need to get a better look at the roof to determine the type and the extent of the damage done. If you have a massive hole in the roof from a falling rock or tree branch, or from snow caving in the roof, then you are going to need to have a professional repair it, as a sealant will not cut it. However, if you have some relatively small and simple roof issues and leaks, Liquid Roof repair could be just what you need.
Don’t Have a Dirty or Wet Roof
One of the biggest problems that people run into when they are trying to use Liquid Roof repair is that they can’t get it to adhere properly. The reason for this generally comes down to one of two things.
First, they may not have done a proper job of cleaning their roof. They might still have grime, dirt, debris or rust on the top of the roof. This means it will be difficult, if not impossible, for the Liquid roof repair product to adhere to it properly. You have to do a thorough job of cleaning off the roof. Once you’ve removed the larger debris from the roof, it is then time to take care of the nitty-gritty details. This includes using a brush to remove even the smallest bits of dirt and rust that you can find. Once you finish with this, you still aren’t done. You should also power wash the roof to get the remainder of the dirt off.
This leads us into the second problem – moisture. Once you have finished cleaning the roof, you need to let it dry completely before you do anything else. It is important that you choose days that are warm, sunny, and dry when you add your Liquid Roof repair product to the roof. This will ensure it dries and cures faster.
Continue to Inspect the Roof
Even after you’ve applied the Liquid Roof repair to the RV, you should still pay attention to your roof. Inspect it a couple of times per year just to make sure it is holding properly. When you have applied it correctly, it has the potential to last for decades. However, there are always other types of damage, such as the aforementioned branches or heavy snow that could damage the roof. With regular inspections, your RV won’t give you any nasty and expensive repairs with which to contend.
