My roof project

Hi folks,
Well Im in the process of removing the old roof & luan from my gulfstream class c. Ive noticed in spots where the roof had leaked that the blue foam board is wet. I thought at first I would be able to lift up the insulation and replace it all but since it is glued to the ceiling that is not an option, because I would have to compleltly takedown anything hanging on the ceiling. My intensions now are to leave it outside for a few days here in Upstate Ny all day long and let the sun bake the crap out of the roof & foam board hopefully drying it out. Any thoughts from those that have replaced a roof or have any knowledge on it? Thanks to all that reply

never replaced my roof but did reseal mine if yous is a metal roof when you are done go over the seams and any point of penetration with a product called vulchem 801 we use it on over the road trailers with great success. I've used it for years around the place on metal roofs of all kinds with never a leak returning

Look at our reroof project summary, link below. We did a full tear off, fixed the rotten wood, added cross beam supports, replaced the luan, & replaced the rubber. Not a hard project, just lots of hours.

my roof project

Hi Guys,
thanks for the info. My roof is a rubber one and the issue I have right now is the water that got down under the blue foam insulation. There are some spots on my ceilng that are soft and I really dont want to have to take my entire ceiling off too.
I had intended on taking the roof off , insulation out and replace it with 2 inch foil faced insulation to help repel the heat BUT the blure foam thats in the roof now is glued down to the ceiling panels andif I start tearing out insulation im going to be tearing out my ceilin too.
