Be sure to keep in mind that Wax + H2O + approx11' high + an older person = very slippery surface and a possible fall. Could be very hazardous to one's health. A fall from that height will definitely leave a mark.

A pound of white sand in the mix would fix those concerns.

On my old coach which was 20 years old fiberglass roof which actually had a low center (wood trusses) in which water would sit to 1/2 inch depth in a rain, I used elastic meric house roof coating for years. Recoated every four years never a leak but whenever it would rain and I'd move the coach the water would come running off the top.

Roof Coating

I just coated my roof with a product called GACOROOF. it is silicone based white coating with a 50 year life used in commercial and residential. So far I am very happy with the way it went on and looks. Very white, although you can tint gray. The water runs off without chalk marks. I coated a old rubber roof and the tops of my fiberglass end caps. I chased leaks for 2 years using rubber patches, and caulk. GACOROOF sealed my coach perfectly. Now were happy and dry campers!

We use Shine On on our roof...Clean the roof with the cleaner (our roof was a mess with the black spots) wiped the cleaner on and off came all the spots. Applied the clear coat following the directions...with the finish...allowing five minutes of drying time between coats and the roof shines like it was brand new. Saw the product at the Tampa RV show.

I just used Dicor's Fiberglass Roof Paint on mine. It goes on easily (after a thorough cleaning) and forms a nice thick, gloss coat and should solve the chalking problem. It's not cheap (~$85/gal at PPL) but I wanted a product designed for this purpose.

How much did it take to cover your roof?

It took about 1.5 gal to do two coats on a 40' Class A.

My fiberglass roof has numerous "pock marks" throughout the roof where it appears that the fiberglass has chipped off and exposed the underlying fiber matting. Based on your experience, do you think the product that you used would be appropriate to recoat the roof and fill in these areas? Or is it a thinner coating meant as a polish or finish only. Thanks for your opinion.

I think the Dicor product is thick enough that it might help in your situation. It creates a pretty thick, gloss coating.

Joel did you have to do anything special to prep the roof other than wash it?

Dicor sells a cleaner that is recommended for use prior to painting. It is designed to remove wax and dull the finish. We used a "scruffy" with it to roughen the surface a bit.
