    Re: Soft, Sticky, Gooey Roof

    I did some internet searching and came up with this thread on another RV forum about using a liquid rubber roof product for your decomposing rubber problem. https://www.rv.net/forum/Index.cfm/f...print/true.cfm

    I would do some internet searching on "RV Liquid Rubber roof".

    I have been doing everything I can to reduce the summer heat problem, and found a guy who recoats RV roofs in my area on Craigs list. We have had some e-mail correspondence, and he mainly advertises the product he uses for sealing the roof against leaks, although he says it really reduces the summer heat inside, too. I think I will have it done in Feb or March, he wants right around $800. A totally new rubber roof can be $5000.

    Good luck!!!

    Same problem, roof was so sticky my shoes got stuck. Call heartland would referred me to Dicor. Talk to Don Metzger customer service for dicor. He ask for photos which l sent. He stated there was a bad batch of roofing material. He offered two options. $1000.00 because he stated it was cosmetic problem or to provide replacement and pay $2750 labor cost. I chose replacement. I also found a place who was very familiar with problem.

    I was lucky. They did a replacement and paid everything, no labor cost limit. I know it did change to the $2750 a few months after I had mine done.

    Hi travelingman, how long ago did you have this done? I have the same issue. Did it take long to resolve the issue with Dicor?

    I called him yesterday and got voicemail. Left message. No answer. I called again today. This time I had him paged after a few minutes it went to voicemail. Left another message. So far no answer.
