Roof Coating

Has anyone used dicor coolcoat and can say that it definitely makes your rv cooler. Have read many reviews but very few stated that it made inside cooler , most just talk about how to apply and made roof look better. Thanks

Used - yes. Cooler - yes when clean. Bright white reflects the sun light. Dirty rubber roof will conduct heat from sunlight. Just a law of nature. The additional very thin layer may provide minimal insulating properties.

Brand name isn't a factor, but a bright white (or silver) roof will reflect the sun better and reduce the heat build-up. Of course, that's a factor only is you are parked in the sun.

That said, I doubt if you will really notice much difference unless your roof is now black, or nearly so.

I put Dicor on to eliminate chalking. It did that. As far as cooler and insulation I noticed no difference. It may reflect more sun rays due to the white color.
