What is the maintenance to an FlexArmor roof?
The only maintenance to this roof system is the topcoat. It is a polymer coating developed for our system and will last 10-15 years. If you see the grey roofing material coming through it is time for a new white topcoat. This is a product that can be applied by you or you can bring it back to a location for reapplication.
You do not have to caulk your roof or apply special cleaners or conditioners on the FlexArmor roof system.
How do I clean a FlexArmor roof?
You can use any kind of household cleaner you want. This roof system has an extremely high chemical resistance and is not effected by cleaners or bleach. It is designed to be self cleaning which means most everyday dust and dirt washes off when it rains. It is non porous so it resists many stains and mildew.
Do I need to caulk around my fixtures?
This roof system was designed to remove all the caulking joints and seams in an rv roof. You no longer have any exposed screws or joints to caulk. Our chemical bond removes the need for caulking.
Is this roof a bedliner? Rhino? Linex?
FlexArmor is a pure polyurea engineered for RV use. To read more on the differences between our system and other polyureas, go to our page, FlexArmor.
What is the difference between your roof system and ones that are done onsite?
FlexArmor is a product that requires a special machine to spray it. There is so much equipment involved and due to overspray, it is not an application to be done outside. We also have a lot of prep work to do on the roof and we remove things such as A/Cs and vent lids so we do all work in a controlled environment. Since our equipment, product and prep processes are different than onsite products, we do all work in a fixed, indoor location.
What if I have to replace anything on my roof?
When we do your roof we replace all your vent pipe base and lids, refrigerator base and lids, install new vent covers and new a/c gaskets. Your new bases are sealed in under the product so they will last as long as the roof.
If you ever need to replace something for some reason or add something such as solar panels, we can remove the component, install a new one and respray just that area that was cut through. If you are somewhere else at the time, grind or cut through the coating to get the part out, replace it and caulk it until you can get back to an approved FlexArmor facility for respraying.
How does this compare to other coatings in strength, flexibility and thickness?
FlexArmor has over 600% elongation. This makes it extremely flexible and provides it with more than enough flexibility to move with your RV during temperature changes. The strength is over 3500 psi tear strength which makes it next to impossible to puncture or snag and cause a tear. Our thickness is 3/16 of an inch thick.
Does FlexArmor come with a warranty?
Yes, it does. You can read the warranty here.
Will my FlexArmor roof be completely smooth? Will there be pitting that I have to keep an eye on?
The final roof texture varies from application to application. Some substrates are smoother than others, so that will affect the final look. How many different components you have on your roof can also affect the finished product. The roof material dries quickly so if we are spraying around things, little droplets will form across the roof. We do a final pass to get as smooth a finish as possible but there is no set way to make each roof look the exact same. There is usually no more texture when we are finished than found on fiberglass roofs. Any “pitting” you see is not deep or rough, it’s more slightly bumpy. There haven’t been any issues about it collecting dirt or other debris.
