Roof waxing

I have heard of people using Future acrylic floor care on their fiberglass roofs. Has any one tried this, and if so does it work?

I've certainly heard of a number of folks who use Mop and Glo. I just won't wax the roof in the traditional way (too much work) but do wipe on 303 protectant after I wash the roof.

Next time, I plan to try the Mop and Glo. Not sure how long any of the floor treatments will hold up to UV and weather but certainly can't hurt to try.

I wash my roof twice a year and wax my roof once a year. I use Gel-Gloss and have been very satisfied. My coach is garaged when not in use so that helps a lot.

A friend uses the Pepboys "Protectant" product for vinyl, plastic, and rubber on his Monaco DP's roof and swears by it. The "house brand" claims to contain UV protection also. I purchased a 20 oz spray bottle for $3.99 (about 1/2 or so of the cost of the 303 product) and applied it to my Journey roof a few weeks ago. I don't know if it a urethane, acrylic, or vinyl product, but it sure does shine up my otherwise dull white roof. One also has to be careful about walking on the roof now as it is a bit slick. I used just about all of the 20 ounces to cover the roof. I think there is still enough in the bottle to cover an additional 30 sq. ft. should you have a 40 footer.

The experiment is in process. I will report on it in about 6 months.

Like Petro above, I use Gel-Gloss twice a year -- once in the Spring and once in the Fall. One additional thing that I do which seems to make the wax stand up a little better --- I use a car polisher for the final polishing. This heats the wax a little and it sure does make it shine. It is not as hard as it sounds as I stand up and hold on to the electrical cord and just let the polisher move around as it wants to on the roof. I do make sure that I hit all spots. You just stand there and let it "do its thing."
