FlexArmor roof


Howard:

Our rig is up at Recreational Specialties in Wakarusa, IN getting painted and spruced up a bit.  We have been considering one of the roof overcoat systems for our TPO roof as an option.  What was your opinion of the RoofArmor system as of when you sold your rig? 

Would you do it again?

Are there other coatings that you looked at?  (ProGuard, Dicor, Liquid Roof, etc.)  Better?  Worse?

Thanks for the input.

 

Mike

Mike,

Don't "count on" a quick reply from Howard, unless he happens to check in.  He and Linda are in Iceland for the next 3 or 4 weeks, so I hope you aren't looking for a quick answer from him.

My husband used to be an installer for RV Armor, which is different from RV Flex Armor, but an excellent product. If you want additional info - send me a PM

Got a few minutes and good internet, so thought I'd post a quick reply.

I was happy with the FlexArmor Roof, especially the maintenance free part. Not having to worry about the cracks in the sealant in the seams and not having to remove the sealant and replace it periodically is a big deal. I looked at some of the other roof coatings out there, but I liked that David's roof sealant was specifically designed for RV roofs and we liked David & Jennifer, the husband & wife owners. Of course, there are other products out there now that I haven't looked at. The FlexArmor roof isn't so soft that it will cut or tear like a rubber roof, but it is flexible, easy-to-clean, and not as slick as fiberglass when working up there.

Before they went out of business, Peterson Industries (Excel fifth wheels), was using a rhino-liner type roof as an upgrade, but the company backed out on their warranty, and Peterson had to warranty the roofs themselves. 

One company "stole" photos from RVRoof.com's (FlexArmor) website (or from ours), so I didn't trust them. They actually used photos of our rig on their website as an example of "their" work. I don't remember now which company it was, but I had to sign an affidavit for an attorney to get a cease & desist order.

The one big negative of the FlexArmor roof (and other similar products) is if you are adding or removing something from your roof. Then the roof material has to be cut, and you end up with the regular lap sealant on the new seams unless you decide to get the roof re-sprayed, which can be a hassle. And it can be expensive if you do it more than once.

The other thing is that they don't do the tops of slideouts. So, FlexArmor won't fix problems with leaky slides.

In a few years, we will likely add the FlexArmor to the Winnebago, sooner if we have a water problem before then.

Hope that helps.

I had the RV Flex Armour Roof applied to my Cedar Creek by Dependable RV Service in Madison,Ms (Jackson) and absolutely love it. They removed the AC's and everything else before they sprayed the roof. It isn't cheap but it is maintenance free and warranted for Life and also transferable

Thanks for the responses, everybody.  Both RV Flex Armor and RV Armor look like good, low maintenance options.  We will re-post once the decision is made.  Thanks again.

Just FYI ... they aren't the same product ... big difference in price reflects the difference.

Ron - are you familiar with RV Armor?

I only ask because this is one case where the lower price is just that - a lower price. It is an excellent product - guaranteed for life not to leak, they send someone to you vs you having to go somewhere, adds less weight (an important factor, especially for a 5er), and it is fully transferable if the rig gets sold.

Not saying RV Flex Armor isn’t a good product - lots of people like it - just pointing out higher price does not always translate into better product.

Yes, I am familiar with the RV Armor product and process. I wan't saying (at least I didn't intend to say) that one was better than the other, only pointing out that they are more different than the names would lead you to believe. The OP seemed to be viewing them as "6 of one and half dozen of the other" and I just wanted them to do their research before making their decision.

I will say IMHO the Flex Armor has a better install thus higher price because they remove the AC's and other things before spraying their product on your roof. Why spend the money for a new roof and not put it under the AC's. the water will puddle under them and leak sooner or later.
