BriteTec Roof Damage

Brite Tek roof owners................

We had a little "encounter" with a low hanging telephone wire which ripped one of our Hadleys off and a couple of antennas. When the air horn did its cart wheeling across the roof it caused a couple of small punctures in the britetek roof. I have heard mixed reviews of patching the roof with a Dicor product and have contacted both Newmar and Dicor to verify. Dicor says they have a patch kit, and Newmar says to put a fake vent cover over the puncture (not too appealing to me). I just thought I would ask to see if any of ya'll have had experience with patching a britetek roof.

Thanks.

Don

If the damage is just a nick or small puncture maybe just some Eternabond tape would take care of it.
