Bubble on the Roof

While driving my class "c" down the interstate with the sun to my back, I noticed an odd shape on the front roof line. Sure enough I found that the roof over the cab bubbles. It looks like the rubber roof is not adheared to the roof. Has anyone ever had this problem and what did you do to correct it?

The glue has let go between the rubber and the roof. You'll need to inject a lapsealant or their rubber cement, a water based glue, to glue it back down. It's much like gluing a patch on a bike tire, then patching all holes with the patch kits. If it is a big bubble, you'll need to slit it open and apply the glue, then seal it up with Eternabond. DICOR is the main supplier of the rubber, they have install info posted. See the link below about our rerrof project. We got our supplies from tweetys.com.

what type of glue or adhesive should I use. I don't have a problem doing the work myself.

This link to Dicor shows pictures of the glue & sealant. We used a paint roller to put it on. A paint brush will work fine too. TWEETYS has the glue at a reasonable cost. The gallon size is the smallest size I've seen. we used Dicor Rubber Roof EPDM Repair Membrane, 6" x 25' Roll, but there are different widths and lengths available to suit your need, shown here. The adhesive is extremely aggressive. Once struck, it is extremely hard to remove. That's good for sealing, bad for an OOPS.
