Rubber Roof Re-Sealing
We met some fellow campers last weekend who directed us to this forum.
We did not see a more appropriate forum for this subject, if there is, just let us know.
Can anybody recommend a company which could re-seal our rubber roof? After 20+ years of worry-free camping, we developed a tiny water leak during a severe storm, next to the bathroom skylight. So we thought it might just need to be replaced.
Our service contact stated that it is not the sealant around it or the skylight itself, we have a soft spot, the rubber roof is getting thin. He actually found another one. He suggested to re-seal it, but does not have the manpower right now to do so.
Supposedly you have to clean it very well and then apply some sealer, and that would buy us another 3 to 5 years.
Any recommendations on companies which do this kind of work? The roof is about 21 feet long (it is a small class C motorhome, total length 24'5").
We are close to Elkhart, IN but have not found a company yet that would to it for a reasonable price. The lowest we were quoted was around $1,700.
We have seen ads from companies, some even come to your place, and they supposedly do it for half the price. But we don't want to fall for any scam or cheap labor. A roof is important and we want to get it done right.
We do not mind traveling some place to get it done, as long as it is manageable in regards to distance and overnight stay. We are still working, so we have a limit on time.
Any valuable input would be greatly appreciated.
