Roof Manufacturer

Hey Guys,

I have a 2015 Wildwood by FR (356QBQ), the Heritage Glen, does anybody know who manufactures the roof and what the warranty is?

Should I contact the manufacturer or the manufacturer of the roof directly?

Thank you very much!

Most FR products have Alpha Systems roof membranes.

technically, Forest River IS the roof manufacturer. They make their own roofs.

IIRC they offer a 10 year warranty on the roof. I would start with them.

Cowracer, I've never seen any reference to FR owning Alpha Systems, in my roof membrane paperwork.
Yes FR constructs the roof but Alpha Systems manufacturers the roof membrane, which is what has the 10 year warranty. Not the roof construction.

Regarding Alpha Sustem Roofing, their literature says to only use their products when re-sealing or repairing. I've always been a fan of Geocel Pro Flex but not on EPDM. Is the Alpha membrane EPDM?

I do see that Geocel does make a sealer for EPDM membranes but is it compatible with the Alpha?

Has anyone had any issues from using "Non-Alpha Systems" sealers?

My Alpha Systems roof membrane is TPO.

My bet is that they classify that as an installation issue, but I'm hoping that I'm wrong.

So if you had to re-seal/repair what product would you use?
