Ed, Did you have any conversations about future need to say replace the skylight or how the roof would be repaired if for some reason you had to break nice sealing job?

Only if there is damage under it due to a leak. Some of mine was removed due to the membrane failure. Fortunately I caught it early and damage was minimal and only located on the roof - nothing inside.

I agree with you completely.

I was told that a presentation was recently made by Flex Armor to a major high end MH company about offering Flex Armor roofing vs rubber and was flat turned down by the owner. He said he was in the business of selling motor homes not lifetime roofs. And when owners of his MH's had roof issues they usually just bought a new MH.

Yes. Cut it as necessary for your repair and reseal with Dicor or other self leveling roof type product. Then stop by one of their facilities and they will fix it right. This isn't a free service, but not a major charge I was told.

Planned obsolescence.

I like the way it laps over the seam between the roof and sidewall. That's always a concern for me.
Question; On the new skylight, it looks like there is a gap where the material meets the skylight. Is that some sort of putty material under there or am I just seeing something that's not there?

Good to hear that this is turning out so well.

What does Flex Armor recommend as to what maintenance is required by the owner?

I think that must be a shadow. This picture was taken inside with ceiling lights on. The material is sprayed right on the skylight.

Wash with non abrasive household cleaners. Mild bleach/water solutions are acceptable.

Inspect seals and edges of roof periodically.

Pretty simply. No more 100'+ of caulking to inspect, scrape off, re-apply, etc.
