    Not always clear when you are up there as the rubber will shrink right back. Maybe a wrinkle or two. It's not the glue that starts to wear out, it's the lack of glue heartland uses both in coverage and quantity . In my case there was glue applied to the front, the sides and around the openings. Absolutely NO glue in the middle area. This pulls the rubber up from the wind passing over, like and airplane wing. If your roof billows it's nothing more then poor installation.
