(was Rubber Roof Replacement)

I didn't mention this in the eariler post but my roof had a crack/leak. When I looked at it I thought maybe I should take drastict action. After getting one eye watering estimate of $4500+tax to replace the roof I decided to investigate some repairs.

So far I patched the crack with a product called Eternabond tape. There was some debonding between the rubber and the wood base. I used contact adheasive and after everything was stuck together covered the area with the tape.

I looked at the rest of the roof and what I'm finding is that there is debonding between the rubber and wood from the roof/coach seam inward about 2"-3" towards the center along several feet from about the kitchen vent toward the front of the coach.

What I'm considering is to cut along the seam and rebond the rubber to the wood base and then seal the seam.

I would appreciate any recomemdations for what type of glue to use or any opinions/suggestions regarding this type of repair. I can be contacted offline at jjbarbic@earthlink.net

Thanks
Jack

Dicor has a rubber-based adhesive they recommend (and sell) for installation of their EDPM rubber roofing. See http://dicor.com/ and click on "Roofing" and then "Installation Components".

EDPM rubber is used in commercial building roofing as well as RVs, so the adhesives should be available from roofing supply places, either online or in larger cities.

The eternabond was the right idea, why not use their system. They have a two sided tape which has the great adhering as their single sided tape. You saw how the single sided tape adhered. I used it on mine. Eternabond is a great roofing repair system for RVer's. If you use the webseal tape you can paint it and match the paint on your RV by having their UV protectant paint tinted. I did it and it looks great.
