So, I am sure to open a can of worms with this question, and I am sure its been answered many times, but honestly I have searched and I cant seem to find the a decent explination of why one product is better than another.
Short version is, I am looking to clean up my roof on the Roof of my RV, so of course everyone is suggesting DICOR, but they want like 15$ a tube here in Canada.
- I have a sunroof on the roof of the trailer and I am noticing the stuff there looks like the self leveling product, but its rubbing off and turning to dust as I rub or touch it.
- I noticed where one of the Antenna connections is, its dried up and cracking.
- There is now a gap at the black tank exhaust
- The vents as well need to have sealant product cleaned up and then re-applied.
My thinking is, I am going to take a “stiff plastic bristle brush” and loosen up the failing sealant, and then re-apply something.
In the searching I have done, I have noticed some people have made due with “Elastomeric Latex Sealant” and recent searches suggest “10 oz. Premium Elastomeric Plus Silicone Caulk”
But the question I would like to understand is “Why this, and not that”
I am asking for help understanding what makes the DICOR stuff better, and anything else inferior?
This is the stuff I am considering.
I haven’t made any “decisions” but I need to get this done soon, the rain season is about to start.
I would like really like to hear from everyone, but I hope the replies are going to be more then “because” or “Dicor is the best”
