So you have to begin thinking about your RV rubber roof repair task due to the fact you are seeing more signs of leakage and water damage. Below are some tips and tricks that can help you with your repair project.
Walking on the roof
Before you begin to repair your RV roof, you first should inspect it, this will give you a more accurate idea of where the problems are, and what has to be patched or repaired. Walking correctly on the roof is crucial. To begin with, lay down a piece of plywood along the seams of the roof. When you walk over the plywood, your weight will be evenly distributed across the boards and the roof rafters.
Repair the problem first
Never think that a leak will just disappear when you slap on sealant. You should always get to the root of the issues first. If you are having problems with the seams or corners of the RV, get a pry bar, take off the old trim, and remove any existing water damage. Should you not do this first before you repair the roof, it will only serve to promote rot through the whole roof, as any professional home roof contractor will tell you. You can use a simple liquid compound. Then simply replace the trim, and you are ready to repair your rubber roof.
