Roof Repairs

Our 2018 39MB rubber roof is coming unglued between the front cap and shower sky light. We just got back from Yellowstone and I discovered this on my post trip cleaning and inspection. The membrane is stretched and wrinkled where it came up in the wind. I assume it's the low pressure while at speeds that does this. Well, that and a bad glue job.

I wanted to get some opinions here on BOTH RV ARMOR and FLEXARMOR roof repair coatings. Iíve taken the beginning steps and have received general pricing for each and feel I know the differences between the two.

RV Armor, they come to you.
The coating is not as thick
They donít remove ACís.
Done outside in non controlled environment.
Less expensive
Lifetime warranty

Flexarmor
Thicker
ACís come off and new gaskets when re-installed.
Done at their shop in a controlled environment.
With RV Armorís specials now and winter rates for southern states this one is substantially more expensive.
Lifetime Warranty

So my question is this, who has had either done and were you happy?
Do you wish you would have done the other?
If Iím going to have this done, another 1500 to go with the better roof would be worth it, maybe.

We have some friends that had RV armor do their RW. They like it very much and from what I could tell it was very well done. I know they are still happy with it 3 years later. IF we had kept our RW I would have considered it.

Just picked ours up from AZ RV Roof in Prescott AZ, FlexArmor. After three failed rubber membranes it was time for a new direction. We got lucky, we happen to be in Prescott! The team at AZ RV Roof are incredible, very professional and efficient. Last RV roof weíll ever need and no future maintenance other than washing. I wouldnít have gone with anything different. We love our new roof and relieved to not ever having to worry about it. Itís also a definitely cost competitive and they take care of all vents, skylights, antennas, etc.

Very happy with Flex Armor also

Like the post above, we just had our 2014 38RE roof replaced at AZ Rv Roof also. Maybe 2 months ago, and I couldn't be happier. Yes it was expensive, but very comparable to having a membrane redone. But why do that? Mine shredded just driving down the road in a bad head wind. It was fine before the trip, as I had been up on the roof checking things. And I agree with above poster, they were very professional, and more importantly to me, communicative. John Fisher kept me up to speed through the whole process, which only took 3 days. He sent pics of progress,, which I really appreciated. New roof, attic vents, vent covers, and I spent the extra for a newer compact antenna, and a "double" layer shower bubble. You can't go wrong with these guys, and they've got a facility in the Dallas/Ft Worth area if that's better for you. Good luck either way you go!

This is where Iím leaning. I live in the Texas Hill Country and have a dealer for this close to Austin. I know RV Roof gets high marks for both AZ and Denton locations. I havenít heard anything from the dealer close to me in Austin but Iíll research them a little more.

Did you pull the trigger?

Hello DRJ564, I was just curious if you went ahead and had your roof done with the spray on coating? And if you're happy with it?
