How to Maintain Your RV EPDM Roof

Caring for your EPDM Roof

Yearly upkeep and proper attention to your RV’s roof will provide years and years of life expectancy. Some of our customers EPDM roofs have been coated 20 years ago. That is essentially equivalent to the life of the entire RV. For any separation in the joints seams we suggest applying the two sided Butyl tape along the seams prior to the application of the Liquid roof. For areas around your vents, air conditioners or where existing caulk has become loose we suggest filling those with the Rutex caulk found on or order form. This Caulk has been field tested and is compatible with the liquid epdm and will not void its warranty. It is free of any solvents or isocyanates and is 100% volume solids. More information can be found HERE (RUBEX CAULK)

Many of the RV manufacturers suggest a cleaning 4 times per year. It is important that the cleaner used does not contain any petroleum distillates. Products which do contain distillates will cause the rubber to swell and loosen. Regardless of being designed for cleaning or protecting, Today there are just so many products on the market it is difficult at best however there is one very clear way in determining a cleaner. Be sure when you read the label it clearly states “does not contain petroleum distillates” or “safe on epdm roofs”.

Many of our RV repair shops use dawn dishwashing detergent and a soft bristle brush to bread down and remove any built up dirt. And of course you should NOT be standing on your roof particularly when you roof is wet. You want to clean and brush on your hands and knees.

Any branches or sharp objects should be removed by hand. Step one is to rinse the roof with plain water; with high pressure if possible. While EPDM in general is very resistant to tears or rips be mindful that any sharp object could cause a scratch and as we all know scratches eventually turn into expensive tears. After all the debris has been removed take you’re soft to medium bristle brush, a bucket of cleanser with water and scrub down the entire roof. Keep the hose handy so you can rinse while you are cleaning. You will want to begin in a corner that is farthest from your ladder. Also work backwards to avoid spending too much time walking on a wet surface. Once the roof is clean and dry you can apply a protectant to the roof or our Roof Conditioner that is specifically designed to work with the Liquid Roof. EPDM roofing manufacturers will also sell their own protectants. A protectant is not necessary but it will extend the life of your roof.

Where do you park your RV? Many of our customers who require the Liquid Roof coating were a result of parking under pine trees and/or fruit trees. Fruit trees in particular will rain havoc on a roof due to the citric acid buildup.

Repair RV Roof Leaks with EPDM Coatings

Any RV owner will tell you the last think you want to deal with on an RV is a roof leak. The 2nd thing any RV owner will tell you is that once they fix their leak they don’t want it coming back again. Well we can’t say this for all RV coatings on the market but when it comes to Liquid Roof we guarantee results. Don’t spend more on less quality products. Do it right the first time with Liquid Roof. And remember with Liquid EPDM you are not just putting on a coating; you are essentially giving your RV a new roof for a fraction of the cost. Don’t waste another minute looking at products that require primers and multiple coats. There is no need to put unnecessary weight on your RV’s roof. With Liquid Roof you get a 5 year warranty against any pealing, flaking, cracking etc. Also because Liquid Roof is a one coat process it now becomes a “do-it-yourself” process and repairs are easily and of course less weight is now on your roof. Through some accelerated ageing testing Liquid Roof was put to the test against many of the elastomeric RV roof coatings as well as the acrylics and was proves to outlast them not 2 or 3 but 4 times longer. We have heard horror stories of RV shops charging as much at $5K for a new epdm roof. You don’t need to reroof just recoat. For about $425.00 and 4-5 hours of your time you can save $4000.00. Visit our videos and read the testimonials sent in by our customers and if you are still not convinced that Liquid Roof is the only choice for an RV leak then give us a call and speak to one of our sales managers and express your concerns. We are always there to assist.

    • Doug T Nixa, MO

      I wanted you to know I researched the product before I spent the $500 on primer and roofing material and went ahead and pulled the trigger and bought it. It went on so easily on a Sunday afternoon. It began raining overnight and the forecast is rain all week. I went out to the pop up this a.m. and the rain is just rolling off, even though the roof is still tacky. I am confident with your warranty that event though it is raining that it will cure in time….
