Want to get opinion from others on this flex armor roof being installed by a company down in Green Cove Springs, Fla.

Can be seen at http://rvroof.com/. Looks good to me and sounds good as well.

Want others' opinions.

Thanks.

I first saw this product in 2011 on an RV at the Perry, GA rally. It was on an older class A Gas. It looked like it was on there more than a year and looked nice. I happened to be walking by the unit. The roof system caught my attention, so I tracked down the owner at the rally.

I am going to Perry GA in March. I intend to look up this RV again to see how it is 3 years later. The person that owns the unit belongs to the Singles Group for FMCA (Group that has the Yellow Flags). I am also following another unit that had this roof system put on last year and resides about 100 miles from my area. I know what the roof looked like before it went to this vendor for repairs. Saw the unit last fall after system had been on a year. Again it was an eye catcher. I generally like to follow roof systems after I see how they do at least five years after the refurbishing. When I am at large rallies I walk about and see what others have done. I also have been following other roof reinstalls and roof repairs systems for a bit now.

If my coach and I are still together in 2015, I looking to what I need to do as the roof will be 16 years old that point. What I like about this product is how it rolls over the side of a roof system without loosing its thickness and structure and also covers part of the front and end caps which are prone to cracking from frontal or rear hits which you can see while on top of the roof if there is an issue.

My unit will need some under the old epdm roof checking to see if repairs are needed so I am looking for someone who can do both the repairs and refurbishing the top. I am also looking for some one takes everything off the roof including the AC units before repairs are done. I am looking how the unit feels on a hot day and if has been up north for the winters how it is weathering. I look for any lifting in a system.

These are reasons that will have me continue to follow a vendor's roof system. I also looking at vendors who replace the whole roof with new roofing material but take the old roofing material completely off and do what ever repairs are needed and remove all the items on the roof. I am in no hurry as I have been maintaining my roof system at least twice a year and have not had any leaks for seven years. My roof system is strong and not spongy and is stored inside during the winter these days so there is no hurry for me. I also have been following several roll on roofing systems and watching how they do over time and what is needed for follow up work over time and what are those costs.

I should note I have an alpha roof system so care is needed what product and method you use. I have been putting monies in my tin cup to be ready when the time come to make a final decision.

As with anything it pays to do your homework before jumping into a decision especially with something like an rv roof. You want the best investment for your wallet, demonstration of performance in weather, length of time your decision lasts before more work is needed, what does it bring to a resale value, and if you do not do it yourself how well does the installer follow up if you have issues down the road

Hope this info help. Safe travels. Toni C

Will do. You can also feel free which I do frequently is contact the vendor and see if there are folks in your area that have used the product so that you may be able to contact as a reference to include the possibly to go look at directly. The rvroof folks put this article on their blog Friday which I just found today. It might worth the time to review.

Safe travels

I had them do my roof last month and they did a great job. The roof look great and I had them paint the edges to contrast my coach paint. If you are in the Bradenton/Sarasota/Tampa area will gladly show you. I will also be at the Daytona 500 and Sebring races.

Made the trip up a ladder for a coach done 3 years ago while at FMCA on the last day of the rally. Owner originally had center of roof done and not the roll over the sides. They brought back later and had that done. Roof is holding up well. Vendor did well matching what was on there originally to do the roll over to the sides. I also looked how far down the product was applied on the front and rear cap as I have a hairline crack Interested in seeing that it will take care of that rather than take it to a boat shop. It was interesting how this vendor sprayed over the top of the roof vents for the black and gray water system so all you have to worry about is replacing a cap. What is on the vendors demo trailer they take around to show matches up with what you see on the roof.

We had RV Roof Armor put on our 2009 Cyclone Toy Hauler and have a field of bubbles on the roof. Been 7 months trying to get the company to do something about it. President of company came and another associate with both saying it could be fixed. But as of today, still haven't had anything done by this company. We would NOT recommend this to be done to your RV roof!!!

What type of material is the toy hauler made of. It will be interesting to know what type of material it failed on.

We normally do not respond to posts by members because we feel these are for rvers to talk freely amongst themselves.

David and I are the owners of RV FlexArmor TM. We ARE NOT RV Armor. This company is not the same product as us and is not associated with us in any way. They do a rolled on polymer similar to liquid rubber roof. They are able to do it in your driveway or campground.

RVRoof.com, David's Permanent Coatings, Inc and RV FlexArmor tm are owned by David Adair and is located in Green Cove Springs, FL. We have been in business since 2005 serving the RV community. We have no complaints about our roof system. We believe in being ethical business people and have always provided professional work to all our customers.

The company you are referring to started Febuary 2013. Once again, they ARE NOT us. We have a sprayed pure polyurea system we designed for RVs and have been doing roofs for almost a decade. If you had your roof done by us, you had to come to our location in Green Cove Springs.

Our website is http://rvroof.com/.

We can provide references from FMCA members going back years, before we even joined the FMCA. Please do not confuse us with other companies, we believe in 100% customer satisfaction and have maintained that for all these years.

We are not a polymer.

Please note that RV Roof Armor is not the same as RV Flex Armor. Do not know about RV Flex Amor.

These are two separate companies. RV Roof Armor is in the Bradenton, Florida area. Not bashing RV Flex Armor. Due to the name, the companies could be confused. Apologies to RV Flex Armor but Flex was not used in the posting.

Was not pointing a finger at RV Flex Armor but note in the posting that you were not being referred to.

Made the trip to Green Cove Springs FL Thanksgiving week to have the RV Flex Armor Roof system (rvroof.com) placed on my 98 FLTW Discovery which has an alpha rubber roof system. Had the old satellite dish removed and sprayed over the large shower skylight which was still in fine shape. Very happy with both these choices.

It was also good to find out the roof substructure was in great shape. David was very good at figuring a way to fix a crack from a wack by a tree branch on the top frontal portion the front fiberglass cap of the coach so it blended in with the roof system. Very happy with the out come of the project and the attention to detail by the staff who worked on the coach. Time was well spent reviewing several roofing systems. Drive from MD was worth the trip. As they say we finally got er done.
