Good day folks,
Well, we are having a bit of summer up here in Ottawa, Canada, sunny and around 45F (OK, no comments from you ''cousins'' down south..I know it's probably 90F somewhere...LOL).
I discussed rubber roof care and maintenance with one of the techs where we bought our rig. He said that all you really have to do is sweep it and clean it with a soft brush and a mild detergent a couple times a season and add lapping compound to joints whenever needed.
I asked about coating it with a UV blocking solution that either comes in a spray or liquid that you can just roll on. He said that this was not necessary because the rubber roof was constructed to withstand harsh environments. Nothing needs to be done other than the occasional cleaning and resealing of joints.
Personally, I think that using a product like Dicor Acrylic Coating once a year (or every 2 yrs) would greatly help in increasing the duration of your roof. At $120gal it's not cheap but a gal. or two should do my roof which would be a good investment.
Being retired, we want this rig to last us for the next 15+yrs so we don't mind babying it and going a tad overboard on some aspects
What are your thoughts on that and how do you care for your rubber roof?
