Moderate RV Roof Repairs (Fiberglass damage):

  • Larger cracks: Cracks that penetrate the RV’s fiberglass require fiberglass cloth, epoxy resin, and putty to repair. The process involves grinding out the damaged area, layering fiberglass cloth with resin, then fairing and smoothing the repair.
  • Soft spots: These can occur from water damage or delamination. The area needs to be dried thoroughly, and the damaged fiberglass needs to be replaced with new fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin.

Major RV Roof Repairs (Structural damage):

  • Holes: Large holes or punctures require significant structural reinforcement. This is a complex repair best left to our team of fiberglass repair specialists to ensure structural integrity.
  • Stress cracks: These cracks indicate deeper structural issues that need to be addressed by our team of fiberglass repair specialists.

Why We Don’t Recommend DIY Fiberglass Roof Repairs on Motorhomes, RVs, and Travel Trailers

While doing DIY fiberglass roof repairs on your motorhome or RV can be tempting, there are several reasons why it is best to leave them to a professional:

Safety Concerns:

  • Toxic chemicals: Fiberglass resins and hardeners contain hazardous chemicals that can cause skin irritation, respiratory problems, and even burns if not handled properly. We have the training and equipment to work with these materials safely.
  • Sharp tools: Grinders and other tools used for fiberglass repair can cause serious injuries if not used correctly.

Repair Expertise:

  • Assessing the damage: Accurately diagnosing the extent of the fiberglass roof damage is crucial for a proper repair. A professional can identify underlying structural issues that a DIYer might miss.
  • Proper techniques: Applying fiberglass cloth, laying resin, and ensuring proper curing requires specific techniques to create a strong and long-lasting repair.
  • Maintaining structural integrity: For major RV roof repairs, especially those affecting the frame or structure, improper repairs can compromise the vehicle’s integrity and safety. Our team understands how to reinforce the structure and ensure it is structurally sound.

Cost Considerations:

  • Failed DIY repairs: A poorly done DIY repair might not only fail but also worsen the damage, leading to a more expensive professional repair later.
  • Buying unnecessary materials: You might end up buying materials you don’t use correctly or in the right quantities, leading to wasted money.

Peace of Mind:

  • Knowing it’s done right: We guarantee our work, giving you peace of mind knowing the repair is done correctly and will last.
  • Professional advice: Our team can advise you on the best course of action and future maintenance for your motorhome.
