RV Roof Coating FAQs | RV, Trailer, Motorhome and Camper Roof Repair

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions:

What types of RV roofs are there?

RV roofs can be aluminum, fibreglass, steel, EPDM (Ethylene Propylene-Diene Monomer), or TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin).

How do I find out what kind of roof I have?

Your owners manual provides you with all kinds of information about your RV including what type of roof you have. Before ordering, it's important to know what kind of roof you have. For example, if you have an EPDM or TPO roof, you will need to ensure to follow the instructions below for correct application. 

"Using a brush, apply a light coat of Superior RV to fill all seams, depressions and around all objects protruding through roof (vents, skylights, pipes, etc.), and any areas that cannot be accessed with roller. If your roof membrane has rounded or bullnosed edges, apply a light coat using a brush to the vertical portion and the rounded edge of the bullnose, all around your roof edge. Allow to dry three hours. Apply ONE THIN COAT to entire roof surface using a short nap roller and allow to dry 48 hours. CAUTION: DO NOT APPLY A HEAVY FIRST COAT ON EPDM OR THE RUBBER MAY DISTORT AND WRINKLE. DO NOT APPLY MORE THAN 1 GALLON PER 100 SQ FT ON THE FIRST COAT. (Example: An EPDM roof that is 25 feet long and 8 feet wide is approx. 200 sq ft., so you would not apply more than 2 gallons on the first coat). After at least 48 hours, apply finish coat using long nap roller. If you are unable to complete the second coat because of  inclement weather or time constraints, it is not a problem.  A second coat can be applied at any time within the next week, provided that the roof remains clean and is free of  moisture."

If you are unsure of what roof material you have, please contact your RV manufacturer with your model, year and serial number, and they should be able to give you the correct information.
