Roof Coating Question

Hi everyone, I just power washed the fiberglass roof of my 2004 Tiffin Allegro Bay 36 LB. It looks pretty good as is, but I would like to recoat it to get a more uniform appearance. I would prefer a material that I can apply with a paint roller. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I prefer dicor products. A good gel coat product. Try this Dicor Fiberglass RV Roof Coating - Gallon - Dicor RP-FRC-1 - Roof Maintenance & Repair - Camping World

Hope this helps, and I'm not a dicor rep so no kickbacks.

The Dicor fiberglass roof coat is excellent - I used it on mine a couple tears ago. With the roof already thoroughly cleaned, it should just paint on. I used a brush rather than roller - too many things on the roof to trim around to make a roller productive.

What do you do with any beads of Dicor sealant (self leveling)? Do you have to clean all of these off first?

NMRVer and Gary RVRoamer, when you used Dicor fiberglass roof coating on your RV's roofs, did you use the prep treatment that the company recommends?

I didn't use Dicors Prep stuff. I just cleaned it well with detergent & bleach and then wiped it with a "liquid sandpaper" product to make sure the surface was degreased and deglossed. Liquid Sandpaper doesn't run down the sides of the coach or otherwise make a mess.

Do not remove the lap sealant! This product is a paint, not a roof sealer.

Roof coating

I used a water reducible 1k urethane coating from Sherwin-Williams on my coach roof three years ago.
It's holding up great. It's as easy to use as applying a latex paint. I rolled it on.
The critical part is surface preparation. You must remove ALL the grime and chalking. If you are interested in additional information I'll be happy to share with you.

We did use the prep treatment on the roof, and it worked great.

I'm going to do our fiberglass roof next week on our 35' MH and have bought all the necessary items and plan to follow their recommendations to the letter.

Here's a link to show you how to do it and answers your other questions.
