Time for a new roof. Yeah!!

So our '98 Discovery is ready for a new roof. The original rubber roof is no longer white so I figure it is time to take care of it. There are no leaks as of right now but probably not far off. I found a guy that will put a new liquid EPDM coating over the existing roof for a very resonable price but I wanted to see if anyone has any experience with him before I pull the trigger. Anyone have experience with The RV Roof man (http://www.thervroofman.com)? Would love to hear some feed back.

I have no experience with the Roof Man, but I would strongly recommend investigating the products and procedures for doing the job yourself. Many of us have done it for significantly less money.

It's not that difficult to do yourself and it's way cheaper.
Here is a link to my blog that tells about my experience with liquid rubber.

I have a 94 pace 34ft and have decided to do it myself, I found this http://www.outerland.com/RV/
DIY project on another forum and checked with a construction contract friend of mine and he has a bunch of leftover EPDM that will fit my rig so I buy the glue, some sealant, tape and a few new covers. Looks like it may turn out to be about $450.00 tops.
If you know any contractors or see any businesses getting their roofs done it would be worth stopping and asking if they have scrap. My piece was 15ft x 42ft. Cost me a case of beer.
