Hasher12,

I don't like any of the coatings for a rubber roof. I think they cause more problems than they solve. Do you have a picture of your roof and the cuts? Also do you happen to know what brand it is?

BTW we actually use EverSeal tape from OMG. I don't know if that is available retail or not, but it is very similar to the Eternabond.

A roll of Eternabond will go a long ways on patching a few cuts. You also need to take a close look at the sealants (caulking) around the vents and other roof penetrations. It typically needs to be reworked every 2-3 years. I try to inspect the roof of my RV's every 3 months or sooner if I think there might be a problem. They get washed down once a year if possible.

Aaron,
I don't have a picture. It is a 2003 Lexington 235. The roof has spots that have been patched with Dicor and it needs to be resurfaced. I want a good covering and I need to determine if a primer is necessary.

Most coatings I have dealt with require that the roof surface be thoroughly cleaned, typically on a commercial roof it is a power washer. Any loose sealants must be removed and then redone after the coating is put on. I have used the Elastomeric Polymer coating from Kool-Seal in the past with decent results on small sections. For larger projects I used Truco, but I believe that is only available to commercial applicators.

Most coatings don't require a primer.

Thanks. I plan to power wash the surface and will coat two times.

Just completed the roof repair. It took about five hours start to finish. It looks pretty good. Cost......$165.
