Nothing can ruin a nice, long road trip than discovering that you’ve got a bad leak in your RV. It’s an expensive fix, especially if the leak has gone on for long enough to cause damage to the interior of your RV cabin or if water has gotten down into your subfloor. Besides ruined carpets and destroyed upholstery, you’ve got to content with the possibility that you’ve got dry rot or mold in places that you can’t get to without taking our RV in to the dealership for repair. However, there’s a way to save your RV from the ravages of undetected water leaks – all you need to do is use a liquid roof repair product to keep the water at bay.
Better Than a Pound of Cure
An ounce of prevention is all you really need to prevent the kind of damage that roof leaks can cause to your RV. If you keep a close eye on your roof by checking every six months or so for damage caused by driving under low-hanging branches or failed caulking around the seams of your roof-mounted equipment like your vents or your air conditioner, you can catch a leak early and patch the hole through the help of a liquid roof repair solution. The cost of a bucket of liquid roofing product is incredibly low when you compare it to how much it will run you to get your subfloor ripped up and replaced or to get new carpet installed, and it’s easy enough to do yourself.
It Won’t Take You Longer Than a Weekend
The process is incredibly simple, and is unlikely to take you more than a day or so. All you need to do in order to prepare the roof of your RV for a liquid roof repair is to make sure it’s clean and dry. If you’ve got a power washer this step is easy, as you can simply blast any accumulated dirt and grime right off the roof and wait for it to dry. After that, all you need is a paint roller – and a smaller paintbrush for those spots on your roof where your roller won’t reach – and over the course of an afternoon you can roll out the kind of protection that will keep your RV rolling down the highway safe from the rain.
Long-Lasting Leak Protection
When you coat your RV roof with a liquid roof repair product, you’re instantly protected from water infiltration. The process starts immediately, even as your new coating is still drying, and it will last for a very long time. In fact, it’s not uncommon to go anywhere from five to ten years between coatings, thanks to the incredible puncture resistance and durability of liquid roof treatments. Don’t spend the next few years trying to recover from the cost of replacing the insides of your RV from a leak – get out there on the road, high and dry, instead!
