TPO roof, dicor replacement??

Have read somewhere, that on a TPO roof sealed with dicor should be stripped of the dicor before it gets too hard and cracked. Some have said for instance a 3-4 year period so that the dicor would come up easily instead of having a huge problem getting it off, or stacking more on top of the old. Have researched some and have not really come up with a clear answer on this. The way I look at it is that if the roof is not leaking and the dicor seems to be still pliable. not cracking, and or lifting, you are good to go. But for instance, do most just look for the small problem areas that there might be some lift or cracking and just touch up with additional dicor or completely remove the old. My ending question is, are we suppose to remove ALL the 3-4 year old dicor completely and re-do, or just touch up as needed. Thank you and Happy Memorial Weekend!!!!

I just glopped more on areas that looked like they needed it .I would never remove the old stuff unless there was a leak and the underneath needed attention.

Agree with Cliff. No need to remove it unless it is coming loose anyway.

I also agree with both of you on this, I guess I had heard a horror story
about someone that had lots of trouble getting the old off because of letting to stay on so long. I for sure am looking for the easiest and quickest fixes to this, but was confused a bit about the complete re-doing of the dicor process. This solution suits me just fine. Thanks !!

Agree as well. My coach is now 10 years old, no leaks and no issues. Just reapplied dicor over existing. Hope to go another 10.
