Hail Damaged Roof And Can't Find Acryl-R

by Barbara
(Abilene, TX)

Question: We bought a used 5th wheel RV. It has had a lot of hail damage on it. The roof is leaking. We have tried to spot repair it, but it still leaks. I read in the book to use Acryl-R to reseal the whole roof. We can't find it. Is there something else we can use, want to roll it on. It is a 97 Jayco Eagle.


Thanks for any help you can give us.

Robbie: There are all kinds of factors to take into consideration. If you are going to completely reseal the entire roof with a roll on product you are going to have to make sure the roof is completely clean before applying. The only product available here in San Diego is Kool Seal.

I am going to advise you, if you have a rubber roof, to only seal the seams (front and rear seam, and vents). I do not recommend a roll on product on a rubber roof.

In answer to your question in search for Acryl-R, it cannot be found in home improvement stores such as Lowe's or Home Depot, but can only be found in RV supply stores. The product I use most often is called Dicor. It is used for and applied the same as Acryl-R.

I hope this helps

Good luck,

Robbie

Kool Seal vs Liquid Rubber for Hail Damaged Rood
by: Anonymous

I see where you suggested Kool Seal, I was thinking Kool Seal was for appearance only, not sealing like the Liquid Rubber. Also, if EPDM is put on with adhesive, how can it be pulled back to repair any water damaged? Confused in SC. I was going to replace a beam that has water damage above the slide out and then coat with Liquid Rubber EPDM coating on the roof this weekend. But would Kool Seal do the same job, if so what mil could you expect with Kool Seal, EPDM coating it says 20 mil after application. Please help me get a better understanding
