How to Apply RV Rubber Roof Repair Paint

Using RV rubber roof repair paint to make repairs may be necessary due to the effects of UV rays, weather, and damage caused by debris. With a liquid rubber RV roof coating you can seal leaks, reduce interior temperatures and reduce outside noises. This product can be used on metal or fiberglass roofs.

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • Rubber roof repair paint
  • Wire brush
  • Contact cement
  • Paint brush
  • Paint roller
  • Long-handled Squeegee
  • Sealing tape
  • Drill with mixing attachment

Steo 1 - Prepare the Roof

Start by cleaning the entire roof thoroughly with a warm soapy water mixture. Allow to dry and use a commercial rubber roof cleaner on any greasy or oily areas. Use a wire brush to remove loose caulk and rust. Contact cement may be used to secure any loose edges. Allow this to dry completely. Repair any torn rubber with the RV rubber roof repair paint and sealing tape. Wash the entire roof again and allow it to dry for 24 hours.

Step 2 - Apply the Rubber Roof Repair Paint

Remove the RV’s air conditioner and replace its gasket. Using a drill with a mixing attachment, mix the rubber roof repair paint in a 5 gallon bucket.  Apply this mixture to the roof with a paintbrush around the vent flashing and edges. Apply to tight areas on the roof with the paintbrush as well. With a squeegee, spread the RV rubber roof repair paint across the remainder of the roof. Using a paint roller, smooth the rubber coating out evenly.

Step 3 - Finishing Up

Allow the rubber coated roof to cure in the sun.
