roof repair questions.. with pics 1986 jayco
Trying to get our recently purchased 1986 26' jayco back into shape... The roof sealant has cracks all around, on the front, rear, side edges and around all the vents, A/C, etc.. I haven't noticed any physical leak damage inside the RV but it smells kinda funky so I wouldnt be surprised if things are rotten.
I have attached pictures of what the roof seams looks like. I figured it would be best to grind the old off before we put down new stuff? I started on some areas but its getting pretty messy, as shown in the pics. Should I continue removing all the old before we put down new, or just put new on top of the old as it is?
And what product exactly should we be using to re-seal everything? My roofing friend (residential roofing) suggested the SnowRoof Mobile Coat?
What are your thoughts???
The first picture is of the right rear of the roof, just next to the ladder, untouched. The second picture is the rear, to the left of the ladder, where I started grinding away the compound.
Any replies are much appreciated!
