CAN ROOF COATINGS EXTEND THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR RV ROOF?
The average RV roof will last around 20 years before it needs to be completely replaced or repaired. During that time, you can usually expect some leaks around 10 years, sometimes 5 depending on the usage and conditions the roof endures. Leaks at 5 years, and a new roof at 20. If you buy a used RV or plan to keep yours for a long time, you’ll have roofing issues with some regularity if you don’t make any changes to your roof. But what if you install an RV roof coating instead of waiting for the leaks? Does that improve the lifespan and effectiveness of your RV roof?
The average RV roof has leaks between 5-10 years. If you apply an RV roof coating before that time, you can greatly reduce the risk of leaks. A 3-4 year old RV roof is the perfect candidate. Applying an RV roof coating is suddenly a very attractive, affordable improvement to your RV with this new knowledge in mind. Rather than dealing with leaks from year 5 to 20, at which point you have to replace the roof, applying an RV roof coating can eliminate those leaks and make your RV much more enjoyable.
Extending Roof Life
The lifespan of RV roof systems can be significantly improved, from 20 to 50 years, by simply applying a thin layer of an RV roof coating over the standard roof. For around $500, you can increase the performance of the RV roof by up to 2.5 times. A silicone roof coating, when applied to an RV roof, serves to protect the roof from the elements, from UV rays, and from debris. This protective layer allows the original roof to last up to 50 years, rather than 20. What a major improvement to the lifespan of your RV roof.
Installing an RV roof coating, specifically silicone, makes your RV roof perform better, for longer. Such a highly affordable solution that can be installed in a day should be on every RV owner’s radar. Can you improve the your RV roof’s lifespan with a roof coating?
