Just finished my report on the completed roof project. It took the better part of an hour. I had been logged in and had the keep me logged in box checked. When I clicked Post Reply I got a message that I needed to click refresh then log in. That wiped out the post. Oh well.
I completed the roof in the dark and it caused a couple of minor problems but overall all went well. My helper couldn't stay for the entire job. Took longer. Overall though I now have waterproof roof that won't need caulking.
I masked the edges ahead of time. I pulled the tape the next morning. Any later and the roof would have made it difficult to remove the tape. If your roof is applied in the sun you might pull the tape in four or five hours even. UV makes it cure faster. I also applied roofing around the sides and around the vents first. I ran it right up the vent box sides.
The roof is best poured on using a 1 1/2 gal bucket with a gallon of liquid in it. I determine how large an area a gallon will cover. Mark it with sharpie and then pour. It is very thick and it is easy to pour out thin lines of it to cut down on moving material around later. I pour it all on. The squeegee moves material around and the short map roller smooths the surface. When applying the main roof area it was necessary to roller the material onto the curve of the edge to meet the part where I had already brushed it on. What worked best was to use the long handled squeegee to move some close to the edge then use the roller to cover the curve. I had to be careful not to leave too much liquid at the top so it would not run down. After dark that became harder and I got some runs but nothing visible at more that 20 feet or 60mph. Where the roof ran onto the RV itself I waited until the next morning, lightly scraped with a paint scraper and wiped with Acetone.
Kahoona: I'm looking at the picture and looks like you tape your gutters shut. Or do you have side gutters on your RV?
