Hi all!
Trying to get my ducks in a row here.
Dicor EPDM is 45 mils.

Dicor

Weatherbond is 60 mils.

therbond

In a pinch would adhesives be compatible with one another?

Thanks!

I forgot to add that we would like to know your personal recommendations as well.

We will be doing a reroof(complete frame off) on a 1978 28' Southwind in the spring, so we are trying to get all our material ready.

Thanks again!

So long as you're not working with a rubber roof, Dicor is excellent. I used it when I had to replace my cabover vent cover assmebly.

You can't beat the self-leveling aspect of it either.

Thanks for the replies guys.
Joseph, I am kind of confused as I thought EPDM is rubber???
I have done so much research on this I think I confused the h@ll out of myself.
I planned on getting the Dicor(Brite-Ply) 30' x 8'6" roll(which is 45mils thick) and the Dicor installation kit which comes with 2 gallons of water based adhesive, 150 feet of butyl tape, and six tubes of lap sealant. The installation kit says it will cover a 40' roof.
I then saw that Weatherbond also has EPDM rolls for RVs that is 60mils thick & I can get it for about the same price.
Wouldn't thicker be better...(where have I heard that before????)?
Anyways...both are made in the USA, which is good, as I hear a lot of EPDM is now coming from China.
I have read a lot of posts by you and Capt.Dan, Lorna, Sanjay, and Fleamarketeer (sorry if I got any names messed up), almost forgot Freebie.....and really value and appreciate the combined knowledge and especially the photos.
When we do tackle the roof(late March or April)Amy will be taking the photos and hopefully it will help others as yours have helped us prepare.
Thanks again!

LOL, I thought you were talking about Dicor Self-leveling caulk, didn't realize they made a type of rubber roof. Dicor makes a couple varieties of caulk some don't work on TPO, some don't work on EDPM because they will eat through it.

I was thinking I might get a little more of a sound barrier with the Weatherbond being thicker. I wanted the Dicor installation kit with the Weatherbond roof if I knew for certain that they were compatible.
