The Most Important Aspect of An RV Roof Repair: Preparation.
RV Roof Repair of any type has to be done correctly to make sure there are no problems in the future.
Step 1 : Inspect the roof throroughly. A new RV roof cannot be applied if there is any water damage or the roof isn’t structurally sound.
Step 2 : Note obvious areas of water damage and estimate price to replace.
Step 3 : Inspect all roof components and discuss with customer repair or replacement options, if needed. FlexArmor roofs come with new standard vent lids, refrigerator base and lid, new sewer fixtures and new vent covers.
Step 4: Document any special request by customer such as custom colors, removal of unused components like satellite dishes.
Step 5 : Move unit into building, wrap it in plastic and begin repairs.
Step 6: Remove and replace damaged wood if required. Start any other structural repairs.
Step 7 : Strip all old caulking, remove components such as A/Cs and satellites.
Step 8 : Replace vent pipes and refrigerator base.
Step 9 : Lots of grinding. Sanding. Cleaning. Steps 6, 7 and 9 are the most time consuming and account for the most of the process.
Step 10 : Final papering.
Step 11 : Depends on the surface. Step 11 is proprietary to FlexArmor and is not used by any other polyurea company.
