Motohome, trailer and camper roofs are commonly neglected. Without regular maintnance you’re likely to have a shorter life for your rv roof. Roofs take a beating from weather, and depending on the climate you live in and how your rv vehicle is stored, sealants can also become brittle and fail which creates opportunities for leaks. Once leaks occur, dry rot will begin to breakdown the internal walls and this can become very expensive. Have you ever stepped into a motohome or camper and smell must and mold? It may be from leakage due to failed sealants or a leaky roof.
When this motorhome came to us, after the initial roof inspection, we discovered the roof had about two years left on it’s life. This roof was in pretty bad shape. You can see from the before image the roof sealant had worn down and there was little sealant left. We chose a product that will extend the life of the roof by roughly 10 years.
The product requires a 3-step process that takes approximately one day to complete.
Here’s what we did for this RV roof:
1. Mask the RV from the roof down.
2. Apply one coat of the Dicor activator cleaner on it.
3. Then wash the roof, removing any dirt and debris.
4. After it’s dry, we add two coats of the Dicor Step Two after it’s all dry.
5. After the 2nd coat is dry we add Dicor Lap Sealant to seal all the components on the roof.
Most people don’t check their roofs. This is why we include it in our 10-point FREE inspection with every service.
Roof Recoat adds life to your roof. Your costs to replace a roof will be on average $5k to $10k on aveage once the seal is broken and leaking penetrates the walls of your vehicle.
It prevents the roof from breaking down. You can do this yourself, but it’s pretty messy. For this particular project, the cost to complete the Dicor process was $1,400.
