You know everything about your RV—from the top of your roof down to the tire trends. You also know that your RV roof isn’t under warranty when you drive it off the lot. Conversely, you may not know every detail about your RV, but you know you’re in trouble when water is leaking inside your camper. In this article, you’ll learn about the 10 steps for RV roof replacement.
RV Roof Replacement
Whether you just drove off the dealership’s lot or you’ve owned your camper for many years, you know that your roof isn’t under warranty. Thus, you may want to get your trailer’s roof replaced for the 20-year warranty and peace of mind.

10 Steps to RV Roof Replacement
We’ll go through the following 10 steps to remove, clean up, and replace your trailer roof.
1. First you’ll need to make appointment for your trailer’s roof replacement at one of our locations at either Jensen Beach or Longwood, FL. We inspect your roof for leaks at those locations.
2. Then, we’ll take off your roof whether that’s PVC, TPO, fiberglass or EFDM. We’ll also remove all vents, caps and seals.
3. We’ll then remove all rotted plywood.
4. After removing the plywood we’ll remove all insulation that is wet or has mold or mildew on it.
5. We’ll then add new insulation to the top of your RV to hold in the air temperature.
6. We’ll put on new plywood. At this point, we’ll either add our rubber roof replacement, or we’ll rewrap your roof if you choose.
7. We’ll apply our rubber coating sealant on your roof.
8. Next, we’ll apply the first coat of our rubber roof that covers all seams. The first coat takes about three hours to dry.
9. We’ll apply a second coat of our rubber roofing. The second coat takes 24 hours to dry.
10. Finally, we’ll put back your roof as well as all vents, air conditioner and sewer caps and seals.
In the end, you’ll have a great sealant on your roof as well as a 20-year roof warranty. This means when we’re finished with your RV roof replacement, you’ll continue traveling without worrying about your camper’s roof leaking when you encounter your next rainstorm.
