    Roof Questions

    This is on a 2016 Bighorn 3270RS purchased new in August 2015 kept outside 24/7 until January of this year. Roof was cleaned using Dawn about once per year. Last week I decided to perform a good cleaning since I can not store the unit inside. I cleaned using Dicor Rubber Roof Cleaner last Wednesday. When I went up yesterday to touch up the sealant in areas I noticed the top surface of the roof was tacky/sticky on my hands and knees. I also identified several areas where the top surface of the roof was distorted but appeared intact otherwise. See pictures attached. There are probably a dozen or more of these areas. Some of these areas are where my knees twisted as I was scrubbing the roof with a medium brush and some are where the sprayer was located when I pumped up the pressure. I was planning to apply the Dicor Roof Protectant after the sealant cures. My questions are as follows:

    1.) Are these areas where the top surface is distorted of a concern?
    2.) Do I need to apply a patch to the areas where the top surface is distorted?
    3.) Is there any concern with the tacky/sticky nature of the surface?

    Hopefully someone will give you hands on info on a similar situation theyve had.
    I think your roof has served you well and probably will continue to do so. Im wondering if the few problem areas could perhaps be covered with Eternabond tape which comes in widths up to 8 wide.
    But I would let it sit and mellow out before doing anything. Some of it may correct on its own.

    I suggest you give Dicor a quick call today - 800.837.2059

    They also have some decent FAQs on their website: https://dicorproducts.com/faq/

    Re: Roof Questions

    When I had my roof done with rvflex armor she told me that there is a bad batch
    of dicor roofing and dicor is very aware. There's no recall but you should be able to make a claim with the mfg.

    Re: Roof Questions

    Yes, there was a bad run of this roofing material. I have the same problem and was advised by dicor that this does not affect the waterproofness of the roof or the warranty. The black material under the coating is the actual roofing material and the top coating is what is getting sticky. They will offer you two options, either a 1,000.00 dollar settlement or they will send you out enough material to recover the roof, minus the labor. The labor is pretty high so considering all of the factors I took the 1,000.00. The original warranty is still in effect on the roof. I try to stay off of the roof as much as possible now. Dicor was very nice about it.....your decision. Good luck.
