Your RV is a source of liberty and adventure. You can go almost anywhere in comfort and style, and you’re never at a loss for things to do and places to see – whether you’ve got your trusty pop-up camper trailing behind you or you’re driving down the road in a luxury RV that would leave a rock band on tour with green-eyed jealousy.
But owning an RV of any type isn’t all Guns ‘n’ Roses. Even the smallest camper is a major investment – and if your RV suffers damage from something like a leaky roof, it can lead to a serious headache if you don’t catch it right away. Sure, you can get your RV repaired at the dealership if water gets into the subfloor, but it’s going to put your vehicle out of commission for weeks. It will also cost you a bundle. Happily, there’s a fantastic, low-cost option to keep your RV roof sealed watertight at all times. It’s called a liquid EPDM RV roof repair solution, and it’s the best-kept secret of all the savviest RV owners.
What in the World Is It?
EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene monomer, is a synthetic rubber that comes in both solid preformed sheets or in liquid form, stored in buckets similar to paint cans. While solid EPDM rubber is a great choice for commercial roofing projects, liquid EPDM is an amazing choice for smaller jobs – like patching the roof of an RV. Whether it’s liquid or solid, EPDM has incredible properties – it waterproofs the moment you apply it, even if you’re painting it on your RV roof – and it’s so durable and puncture-resistant that you might not have to replace your liquid EPDM coating for as long as ten years. Think that’s impressive? Solid EPDM sheets fitted to commercial buildings are capable of lasting half a century under the right conditions!
Never Worry About Your RV Roof Again
One coating – that’s all it takes. You don’t even have to set down a primer in most cases, as you can simply start with a clean, dry RV roof and apply it like you would with paint, and you’re sealed. The process will probably take you around 2 hours or less unless you’ve got one of those world-class 45 foot long RVs, and you can expect to use anywhere from 3 to 8 gallons depending on the size of your RV or trailer. On top of that, your RV will look better than ever thanks to its super-smooth coating. At this point, the only thing you’ll need to worry about is if you hit a low-hanging branch or two while you’re out on the road. There’s a good chance your liquid EPDM coating came through just fine, but take a quick look the next chance you have to make sure you don’t have to re-apply a few square feet to repair any damage done.
