Gotta agree again. Best route is the Flex Armor. We full time as well, and if I had the extra pocket change, I'd have it. I have my seams sealed with good success over the time we've had it now, and in the past, but no doubt the rubber material is inferior, the Flex Armor is superior.

Ed,
How much did your new roof cost you? I have Alpha EPDM roof on mine and it is starting to peel away from the edges. I know it will cost me several hundred dollars to glue it back down and I'm wondering whether I should just replace the roof since it is 4 1/2 years old now.

I had mine replaced with RV Flex Armor in Madison, MS as you know from reading this thread. They were charging $170.00/linear foot at that time and it took 2 1/2 days.

It wasn't cheap, but absolutely worth ever dime to me. No more rubber, no more caulking, etc. I'm in Panama City, FL volunteering for the summer at the same park I have been in for the past 5 years. Being on the same site as in years past I have noticed a major change in my a/c operation. Both my units now cycle on/off during the heat of the day that they never did in years past. Obviously better insulation in the roof is the only thing that changed. And when it rains the thicker roof makes much less less noise inside. I can actually hear my television when it is raining outside now.

Let me know if you need more info.

Alpha Refinish Planned

I finally have received the primer and top coat for the refinish project I need to do on my Jayco/Alpha roof - a 2005 model 26BH. These products have been farmed out to Camping World and I have been trying to obtain them since mid-February. I am fortunate in that I have the ordinary wear issues after 10 years. Hopefully my plan succeeds. Sounds like op original roof life expired pretty quickly.

Ed,
I heard about Flex Armour. $170/ft is expensive. Do they do the roof of the slide outs as well? For a 30' roof, that is over $5000! What happens if you need to add stuff to your roof? Do you need Flex Armour to recoat that area?

If you need to add something to your roof, cut a hole and add it then use Dicor or similar. The next time you are going to be close to a Flex Armor installer they can recoat that one area for you. Don't know what they charge for this.

I was quoted $6,000 to replace my Alpha roof by my dealer. Flex Armor was essentially the same price. Hmmmm! Same price and expect different results the second time? Not Me!
