Roof Re-seal

I was on the roof of my RV and noticed some minor cracking at the seams. I called a local guy and he wanted $90 just to come out and give me an estimate. He also guestimated that the new Dicor and a roof sealant would cost me $1200.

WHAT!

I agree-buy some and DIY-clean areas of cracking with soap and water first and put it on if temperatures and weather permit.

Agree with DIY. Itís not hard and it absolutely WILL be a recurring problem so you might as well get confident that you can handle it. Usually they donít tell you when you buy a MH that you need to inspect and service your roof at least 2 or 3 times a year. What I do is pick a nice day and go up there and inspect the whole roof on my hands and knees. Any suspect areas such as youíve found should be cleaned and resealed. If itís bad (or especially dirty) you can remove the old sealant before applying new. Of critical importance is that you use the correct self leveling RV roof sealant. Do NOT use silicone! Some folks like eternabond tape but I think it goes on forever and Iíve resisted using it. Good luck!
