    Leaking Roof - RV Flex Armor Roof installed

    So July 4th weekend we were at Port Hudson Marina.
    Right on the gulf of Mexico.
    7 pm a storm hits. Rain was coming in sideways. Our awning was tied down, but the wind storm was able to lift one side up and push the other side down. Needless to say we could not save the awning. Still waiting for the awning to arrive.
    The next morning I found water in the laundry basket.
    Submitted a claim, awning approved for but not the roof.
    So I took it to RVROOF. COM
    The corporate office did the work. Rvflex armor roofing is now installed.
    According to the owner these Landmarks ac's mounting system are notorious for leaking.
    Nothing visible as far as preventive maintenance inspections so nothing to see nothing to fix.
    Very glad I bit the bullet and had them look at it.
    Last time I walked the roof I didn't notice any punky wood.
    They also said the Landmark roof has minimal trusses?

    But I'm thinking I was lucky.

    Wow! That looks like a nice job. Is that similar to or the same type of roof job that Erica had done?
    The ac leaking brings back memories. When I replaced my living room ac a few months ago, I had a bunch of rotten trusses that I had to rebuild. The roof ac gasket had been leaking and water got into the ceiling. Hmmm. I wonder how many have this problem and don’t know it. Oh well.

    According to the lady at rvflex armor ( corporate office) " those landmarks and the ducted ac's ... Are notorious for leaking"
    Visibly very hard to see signs of water intrusion until it's too late

    Leaking ?

    Yes this is the same product we had done. The company originated in Florida, there are licensed installers across the country. In our case, Mark Lamb at the Dallas Metroplex location was a customer first, and then became an installer — he was that impressed by the product.

    Looks good, Carl!!

    That will look great! Post more pics when you get it back. I can tell you how much I love this roof, an not having to worry about it!


    We had about 4.5” of rain in about a day and a half last week, and another 5-6” over 3 days this week. Lots of flooded streams and low-lying areas due to the rapid rainfall.

    Benefits of a FlexArmor roof:
    1. You can barely hear the rain now in the coach, and 2. Peace of mind, none of that is getting inside from the front or back cap, around anything ON the roof, or the edges of the roof at the gutter!

    I added the Finnish picture with the color match on the sides. It looks like the original color. $7467.00! But worth it

    I thought the color match was worth the extra money and it looks original.
