The client has an RV, and the client is pretty sure that it has rubber roofing. That’s what the man who sold it to the client said. It seemed as if they knew what he was talking about. They are not an expert in RV terminology, so it almost seemed like he was speaking another language. They’ve done some research and are doing more. But it’s likely the client will need help learning all about the client rv roof replacement.

Make sure the client roof is rubber.
First, make sure that the client’s rv roof replacement is rubber. This is easy to check by consulting the client RV’s manual. The manual will show whether the client has an EPDM RV roof (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) or a TRPO roof (Thermal PolyOlefin). It is easy to see why EPDM and TPO are so important.
It doesn’t matter if the client has lost or not received the client RV’s owner’s manual. A simple touch and eye test can usually tell the difference between EPDM and TPO RV roofs.
TPO roofs are typically shinier than EPDM roofs and feel like a swimming pool liner. TPO roofs come with heat-welded seams. An EPDM roof looks and feels just like a black inner tube. It is cemented together instead of heat-welded.
TPO roofs come in many colors, but they are usually white. EPDM roofs can only be purchased in black or white. On the other hand, EPDM roofs are more common in white as white heats better. EPDM roofs have a matte surface, while TPO roofs are shinier and smoother.
If the client rubber RV roof appears very rubbery, it will likely be an EPDM roof. It’s more likely to be a TPO roof if it looks like plastic.
If the client still has trouble, here’s one last tip. TPO roof flashing boots almost always have the “TPO” stamp.
Rubber roofs offer many benefits.
A rubber RV roof’s primary benefit is its low cost. Rubber roofs are more affordable than fiberglass or aluminum roofs. Rubber roofs are lighter than aluminum and fiberglass roofs.
Most importantly, rubber roofs on RVs require very little maintenance. Rubber roofs don’t require much, if any, care. It’s even easier if the client has RV Roof Magic.
RV roof replacement provides the RV with durable, long-lasting material. They are typically laid in one piece. This reduces seams on the client roof. This reduces the chances of water or other hazards getting under the client roof and causing damage to the client RV. Modern rubber is resistant to the sun’s ultraviolet rays so that it can last up to 50 years. Many rubber roofed RVs built in the 1970s still have original rubber roofs. Rubber roofs can withstand hail and high winds because they are so strong. Rubber roofs are ideal for RVs because they can be easily sealed. Rubber roof repairs are quick, simple, and inexpensive. A tube of liquid rubber is all the client needs to fix the rubber roof on an RV. Special tape made for rubber roofs may also be used.
