Thanks for the info on maintaining the EPDM roof on my motor home. The original roof was 18 years old. It was not leaking but was getting thin and needed something to restore the integrity of the original roof. Great care was taken to prepare the roof for application of the liquid EPDM. It was applied with a brush and roller. It took about 2 hours to apply the EPDM. This was done in September 2010. I checked the roof today ( June 20th 2011) and it looks as though the EPDM was just applied 5 days ago. I wish that I had taken pictures before starting the project and then after finishing. Thanks for a great product and for the info on maintenance.
Thank you for your quick response. Here are the before and after pictures. What a great product. It was everything you said it was on your website.
My name is Daniel Sims. My business partner and I recently went to San Diego for a working vacation. We put a new roof on my parents house using the liquid EPDM. We pressure washed the roof on July 10th and finished applying the Liquid EPDM on July 12.
There are several reasons for my letter here. I wanted to let you know how much I like the product! I can not understand why this is the first time I have been exposed to it when I have been in the construction business for close to 30 years. There are many, many times in the past when the liquid EPDM would have been a perfect solution on a project and I definitely plan on using it in the future!

- Clean ABS Roof thoroughly, I used a pressure washer.
- Carefully, slightly lift bad cracks that are delaminating from the foam top and spray some water into the cracks and secure with white Gorilla Glue. I used weights and tape to hold in place until it dried. (The moisture is needed for the Gorilla Glue.)
- Make slurry of MEK and plastic forks and spoons the consistency of heavy cream. (This takes about four hours for the plastic to dissolve.)
- Clean out large cracks on the camper roof with MEK and a toothbrush.
- Sanded large cracks to match roof then lightly sand the entire roof. Clean off sanding dust.
- Next mask off area that you don not want to coat.
- Next applied Primer 1501, bought from EPDM Coatings 1-610-298-1989. This is a two part primer, mix part A and B and paint entire top of camper. (Only mix one quart at a time as this will set up before you finish.) Let primer set for 24 hours.
- Sand any runs.
- Applied Propoly 9601, bought from EPDM Coatings 1-610-298-1989. This is a two part coating, mix part A and B and paint entire top of camper. (Only mix one quart at a time as this will set up before you finish.)
- In 24 hours it was unbelievable. It looked alike a new roof.
We retrieved the original pictures that we sent to you before beginning the project and took the after shots. There will be one more email sent to you, as all the pics wouldn’t fit on one. You can see for yourself what a huge improvement we have. As I said on the phone, you folks did a great job and the product was perfect. Thanks for your help.
Douglas A. Loesel,
Sorry to split up the two messages but here is the after product. The roof looks new and I love it. You are welcome to use my info for any promo or anyone from Canada who is concerned about importing your products and the duty. Well worth every penny.

I just wanted to send you a testimonial email about your product. We bought a ’99 5th wheel only to find out that it had a leak 3 months later. I had to repair a section of the roof decking and replace a 3 foot section of the membrane leaving a seem on the roof. After making the repairs I coated the roof with liquid roof and waited until after we had a rain storm to send you this testimonial. I am happy to report that after an overnight rain storm that dumped over an inch of rain I went in the trailer to find it bone dry! The product was easy to apply and I have even used the left over material on a couple of other projects after placing it in the freezer for storage. I would recommend this product to all RV owners and will probably coat the roof of my next RV with it.

I wanted to let a few months go by before I wrote back to you folks. It has been 6 months since the application went down. First I would like to say that I was very pleased with the level of service I received. I probably called your office about 7 or 8 times with questions but this was the first time I was using the product and it was a fairly large commercial roof. I did hire some general laborers and the product went down just like you indicated. I actually applied a smaller section of the roof with elastomeric before I ordered your product. So now I have to get the elastomeric off because it is already cracking in two seam areas. So short and sweet. We love the product, yes costs some money but factoring that we did not need a primer and there were not multiple coats like the systems I am familiar with it actually came in cheaper and the results were just outstanding. Lets get through the winter and our company will be ordering more.

EPDM is an awesome product and everything that is described on their website. We encountered a leak on our 22 travel trailer and Googled roofing products. We found the Rubber Roof from EPDM and had to try it based on all the information and testimonials. We completed the prep, taped off all sides for spillage, and proceeded with the squeegee and roller (be sure the roller is low nap). After installing the product we had bubbles. We contacted EPDM and they stated the bubbles would disappear during curing. Sure enough, they disappeared. Good thing, as we applied another thin layer to the front and back where the siding and roof meet, as we had removed all of the old caulking and applied new caulk, before applying the Liquid Roof. The roof looks fantastic and we will now have many more summer camping trips ahead. Thank you for such a reputable outstanding product.

We Received your 1 gallon jug yesterday. Today I reviewed a few of your YouTube videos, I followed them and was amazed how easy it was to apply. My RV is 4 1/2 years old and I developed a small leak, so I decided to seal up all the openings on the roof. It took me a little over and hour, start to finish. It applied so easy and has now relieved my fears of more water coming into my RV. I also love the fact that everything needed was in the box. Awesome product!!!
i have used this product on over 20 rv roof to help my customers get pease of mind and prolong the life of thier motorhome and campers.
No, I do not mind at all that you use my testimonial on your website.. I hope it reaches other RVers out there who are being misled towards single stage applications that do not last. I received the Liquid Roof today that was ordered Saturday.. GREAT SHIPPING TIME !!!!! The coating will be applied on Sat. and will also be videoed from start to finish and a follow up video and testimony on the Liquid Roof. I also got my boss to order a 5 GAL. kit for his RV. [William Anderson] I will also video that process. My name is Doug Klem and I will be doing the application.. I have 15 years in yacht restoration and was astonished that people I met here in the RV park where I now live were using a single part coating on there rooves and recoating twice a year.. That”s when I got on the internet and found EPDM.. From all my years of working with coatings I know single stage coatings don’t hold up.. I guarantee that if I am satisfied with Liquid Roof you can expect many more orders… Thanks and I will be in touch… 850-417-9195
Well what can I say the product everything Greg said it would. We have both epdm roof and metal roof about 7500 all in all. Roof looks great we will send pics soon. I was just astonished how easy it went down and as we were rolling it the roller marks jus disappeared. I left the guys there and came back about 3 hours later. They knocked out about 2500 sq ft. and it literally looked like someone put down a 2500 single pieces of material. I wanted to wait a few months until I gave you my feedback and I can say this is the first time in 7 years the client is telling us his roof did not lead during the winter months. We will be ordering more in the spring. I think we will be migrating our coating product over to the Liquid epdm.

I am sending this email to sing the praises of Liquid Rubber. My husband died in 2009 of brain cancer just before his retirement leaving me with all of the home maintenance projects he had planned on completing in his retirement. Re-coating our mobile home roof was one such major project. I tackled the project in the same manner I had watched my do it yourself husband complete tasks all his life. I started out at Home Depot and Lowes examining what was available and asking a lot of questions. Our small motor homes roof needed to be re-coated also, and I thought I would start with that to gain confidence and to make sure I was indeed capable of completing the task of the larger project of the mobile home roof. At the home improvement stores I was met with skepticism, encouragement, and amazement. Next, I went online to check out some blogs on people re-coating mobile home and motor home roofs (that strategy I learned from my son) and discovered most were saying the same thing: Liquid Roof is the best. Finding it was not sold in stores, I ordered gallons from you to re-coat the motor home and plunged in. My brother helped me by removing all caulking, patching a ripped portion of the roof, and holding the drill to mix the chemical in the Liquid Rubber, with my father in his 80s pouring in the chemical as I held the gallon can during the mixing. As you can see by the pictures, the motor home roof looks fantastic, the liquid roofing was amazing to work with, my confidence soared and I began work on the mobile home roof with the order of more gallon cans. My main concern was to get the highly weathered edges coated as quickly as possible, and I did complete that project before my father became ill with bladder cancer and my time was invested in caring for him in my home, and then in a nearby long term home before his death in November. Now I am again undertaking the challenge of working on the roof. I am about to order 5 gallon buckets to cover the entire surface. I still have to ascertain how to get the heavy buckets up to the roof but shall find a process eventually. I took these photos of the motor home before and after as your website offered a monetary discount for sending in pictures. I see that it now has changed to video. However, I was glad that I did take the before and after pictures and I could not resist sending these photos anyway, with the tale of the lady and what seems to you a small and simple project, but what seems to me a completely intimidating and overwhelming project that I am able to complete because of the easy application and wonderful leveling aspect of your fantastic product Liquid Rubber! Thank you!

My 1998 Overland Lorado motor home has an EPDM roof that is showing its age.
Chalking and small cracks are evident and the roof has had numerous repairs by the previous three owners. I researched roof coatings on the internet and concluded that Liquid Roof was the best product for restoring the roof.
I live in Boston and have trees overhanging my driveway so I decided to apply the Liquid Roof while in Tucson Arizona while staying in a RV resort.
I ordered 8 gallons on Monday and it arrived on Friday, much faster than I expected. I bought the tools at local stores (paint brushes, roller, squeegee, wire brush and cleaning supplies). I found the Instructions and You Tube videos helpful in planning the project. Preparing the roof took about 10 hours (cleaning, brushing, patching with butyl tape and taping edges). Applying Liquid Roof took about 6 hours and most of the time in the mixing and painting the edges using a brush. I found a hand held 12 squeegee worked well in the tights areas of a motor home roof. This was a one man job and can be done by someone with moderate home handyman skills. The roof looks great and I expecting many years of added life with no leaks.
Thanks for your help.
This a great product, EPDM Rubber for roofs. It is easy to mix and easy to apply. I had a roof job where a company applied a “torch down” rubber system on my flat roof. They made several critical errors in the application of the torch down. Two added roof repairs and four internal ceiling repairs later and the roof seemed tight. Once you are burned by incompetent roofers you become a cynic quickly. Because of arbitration I got some of my money back. I certainly did not want those bozos back on my roof.
Water stands on my flat roof in various places. I decided to apply a coating of EPDM Rubber over the roof for added measure. So I bought a gallon and applied it in a critical area. It stayed tight and looks great. I waited for several months during the rainy season and had very positive results. I then bought a five gallon pail and applied it to a larger surface. Looks great and adhesion is fabulous. It bonds great with no distortions of bubbles.
I think the easiest thing was that I had a fairly solid surface with which to work. So, cleaning and surface prep seems to be critical. If you prepare the surface well your application and results will be outstanding.
I just ordered two added five gallon buckets and plan to coat the remainder of my roof. I use a short nap roller and it goes on with ease.
I fully recommend this product for roof repairs. Just follow the directions and anyone can do this with completely positive results.
