Roof adhesive?

Hey all,

I'm a newbie to this forum and I have been looking around and haven't found this but I'm sure it's here somewhere. I'm rebuilding the roof to my 96' Rockwood and I'm curious what are the best adhesive to re-glue the aluminum skin to the foam/wood combo I useing on my new roof rebuild. Any help is appreciated.

I don't have any idea about adhesives to use for bonding the aluminum to the framework, but Eternabond will work great for covering the seams after screwing them down. It will also do a great job of sealing around vents and other protrusions on the roof.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I would think (I don't know what the Mfg uses) if it needs to be glued down contact cement like is used on countertops. I agree with the bonding tape on all seams.

I would also put stainless screws every 8 to 12 inches along the frame members. I would do this because if you have to get on the roof for cleaning or repairs your weight will cause the aluminum roofing to flex weakening the bond with the adhesive. Use a small piece of Eternabond tape or Dicor over the screws. Regular steel screws and aluminum cause a galvanic reaction that will eat through the aluminum.
