Fiberglass Roof Sealing Tape

Have an 06 HR Endervor and where the roof radius meets the roof is a white tape from front to back. It is starting to lift on the side and was wondering if anyone has had this issue and if so what they have done to repair. I am thinking of some sort of glue or maybe even roofing tar to resecure. If it was on the roof side I would use self leveling caulk but this is on the road side and dont think will work cause of the radius curve and appearance. The current tape is not in the condition to even consider a tear off and replace rather it is just starting to come loose on the edge in a couple of places.

Thanks Much

Ed

Ed, what you need to do is remove all of it, and replace it with Eternabond tape. Monaco chose a cheaper product that does not last. Eternabond comes in black, white, and I think silver.

EternaBond16 St. John DriveHawthorn Woods, IL 60047 888-336-2663http://www.eternabond.com/

Be advised that once you put this stuff on, you don't want to try and take it off, so use very good judgment in applying it. It really sticks well, but follow the installation instructions.

It shouldn't be necessary to remove the old tape. Just put eternabond over the edge that is coming loose. It will stick to the old tape and the surface beside it to seal the old tape back down. If done carefully, it will look like oem.

Bob, I am kinda liking that idea, the cleaning process after lifting the old tape would take forever. The tape is only 7 months old, long story......... I did take a wooden roller yesterday while the sun was out and hot and rolled the tape down but dont think it will stay.

Thanks Rex for you thoughts also!!

I also had positive results with Eternabond tape. After having a roof leak one winter I taped over all the roof joints. First I cleaned the dirt off with a household cleaner in the winter time with poor results. It pealed up with the next morning frost. Cleaning with lacquer thinner and applying in the summer worked very well. No leaking problems 4 years and going strong. Hopefully it will be in good shape for the new owner for several years.

We had a heck of a leak somewhere (never found the source) and after caulking and caulking and caulking some more decided Eternabond was the solution. Just follow the directions that come with it and trust me it will be there for life. The stuff does stick.

I think that cutting the part out that is lifting would be a good idea. Check out the Eternabond website for more info.
