Flex Armor roof

I replaced my roof on a 2016 36 RL about 2 years ago. Had a tear in the roof membrane. Had a leak the other night and went back up to inspect. It was leaking in through the TV antenna. Looks like they didnít caulk it correctly. Then I noticed another small tear in the membrane!! Can this be patched? I am done with these cheap roofs. If I have to replace, I plan on doing Flex Armor. My question is: The coating is white, what is that going to look like with the full body paint? Color scheme is beige, black, and red. Current roof is beige.

The shop that did mine colored the side black since my colors are black and beige. I used the shop in Bertram Texas. It turned out great and I don’t even notice it.

Eternabond tape will fix and seal almost any issues on the roof and last longer than the roof. I caught a low hanging branch on the edge of our roof for about a 10' section. Covered with eternabond and it's never leaked.
Typically any issue with the TV Antenna is a poor seal around the coax boot.

I had mine done about 4 years ago at Bertram as well. Just got it done in the white. Don’t really notice it really. Not like your walking around looking at the roof. It’s just a few inches. Took care of the roof problems and it’s a life time warranty.

Thanks for the information. I will definitely do the flex armor the next roof replacement. Going to try the tape for now. Itís amazing how many low hanging branches there are in the campgrounds, and along roadways. I am nervous every time I see one. The big advantage of flex armor is that they can repair a damaged section. The RV repair shops I have dealt with , always want to repair the whole roof even with one tear. I guess they like to make money!!!
I really appreciate everyone on this forum for all the help in this journey.

Flex Armor roof

Hey Dave, sorry I'm a little late to the party here, but we had our roof done by the Flex Armor guys here in Arizona (Prescott). And we couldn't be happier. Our membrane was destroyed while on a trip in Oregon last summer. We had them put a beige color in the sprayed on product because I wasn't real keen on having a white roof with my black/maroon paint job on ours either. Anyway, the beige definitely looks better IMO. Jon Fisher was great to deal with there, and kept us informed of the progress with pics and info. I think you'll be very happy if you go that route also. It was pricey for sure, but not much more than having the membrane replaced from the quotes I got around the Phoenix area. We're very happy with ours. Good luck!

Bob

I paid 185.00/ft. It’s per foot of roof, not rv length also.That was last year though. You are better off getting a quote through their website.
