Roof coating

2016 Jayco 29RKS
Wanting to re coat roof. It has a few very minor tears. Is a silicone coating ok?
Thanks for your time.

I would use eternabond tape or self leveling dicor. I would only do the repairs and not try to coat the entire roof, with anything. If it gets bad enough RV Armor is what you would need, but not for a couple of small tears.

I would tend to agree with madmaxmutt. The roof should have a lot of life left. Use Eternabond tape to seal any tears. When the top coating wears off then you could consider recoating. Mine is 2004 and the roof is turning black so I am going to paint it with Heng's Roof Coating.

Last year when my neighbor's shed lost some shingles in a wind storm one of them poked a hole in the rubber roof. Saw the shingles in my back yard and went right up on the camper to check it out (good thing). I sealed it with an Eternabond patch immediately.

There's a company in the Houston area that will redo the roof with a coating similar to a spray in bedliner. I've actually been considering this once mine is out of warranty as it seems it would be thicker and more durable.

How much extra weight would this add?
