Rubber roof repair v replace

My roof is showing black in some spots, where the white has worn off. Is it better to do a total replacement or can I use some of the liquid roof repair to " repaint" a new roof. The latter definitely looks like a cheaper option. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I have read a lot about it on the Motorhome section. It works well according to what I have read. It costs a few hundred dollars in lieu of a few thousand for a replacement. You could probably find a lot of threads with a search.

From what I have read, you can get the appropriate product and coat it without the full replacement. Replacement would definitely be needed if cracking, etc.

I recoated my EPDM roof last spring.

I didn't have any ;leaks, but the 17 year old roof was in need of something, so after researching, I decided to recoat it.

I wrote a short article on my blog site

Re-coating EPDM roof | 2001 Coachmen Mirada 300QB

NOTE - In the photos, After the coating cured I got some white restolium spray paint, and painted the skylight. It still lets in some light, but greatly decreased the amount of heat, AND from the outside it looks good...

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
