RV Roof FAQs

What is the maintenance to an FlexArmor(R) roof?

The only maintenance to this roof system is the topcoat. It is a polymer coating developed for our system and will last 10-15 years. If you see the grey roofing material coming through it is time for a new white topcoat. This is a product that can be applied by you or you can bring it back to a location for reapplication.

You do not have to caulk your roof or apply special cleaners or conditioners on the FlexArmor(R) roof system.

How do I clean an FlexArmor(R) roof?

You can use any kind of household cleaner you want. This roof system has an extremely high chemical resistance and is not affected by cleaners or bleach. It is designed to be “self cleaning” which means most everyday dust and dirts wash off when it rains. It is non porous so it resists many stains and mildew.

Do I need to caulk around my fixtures?

This roof system was designed to remove all the caulking joints and seams in an rv roof. You no longer have any exposed screws or joints to caulk. Our chemical bond removes the need for caulking.

Is this roof a bedliner? Rhino? Linex?

RV FlexArmor(R) is a pure polyurea designed for RV use. To read more on the differences between our system and other polyureas, go to our page, About FlexArmor.

What is the difference between your roof system and ones that are done onsite?

FlexArmor(R) is a product that requires a special machine to spray it. There is so much equipment involved and due to overspray, it is not an application to be done outside. We also have a lot of prep work to do on the roof and we remove things such as A/Cs and vent lids so we do all work in a controlled environment. Since our equipment, product and prep processes are different than onsite products, we do all work in a fixed, indoor location.

What if I have to replace anything on my roof?

When we do your roof we replace all your vent pipes and lids, refrigerator base and lids, standard vent lids, install new Camco vent covers and new a/c gaskets. Your new bases are sealed in under the product so they will last as long as the roof.

If you ever need to replace something for some reason or add something such as solar panels, we can remove the component, install a new one and respray just that area that was cut through. If you are somewhere else at the time, grind or cut through the coating to get the part out, replace it and caulk it until you can get back to an approved FlexArmor(R) facility for respraying.

How does this compare to other coatings in strength, flexibility and thickness?

FlexArmor(R) has over 600% elongation. This makes it extremely flexible and provides is with more than enough movement to move with your RV and during temperature changes. The strength is over 3500 psi tear strength which makes it next to impossible to puncture or snag and cause a tear. Our thickness is 187 mils or 3/16 of an inch thick.
