Take a look at some before and after shots - my apologies for not getting the exact same angles on these before and after photos
|Before Cleaning the Roof|
|Day After Applying Liquid Roof|
The picture above shows how the roof looked the day after application. The roof is smoother and shiny now. Notice there are what look like wrinkles or bubbles on the new roof. The week after when we visited to put the Maxx-Air Vent covers back on - they were almost all gone. According to our reading this is a normal occurrence when applying Liquid Roof. I did find a small bubble while Amy was putting the vent covers on, and decided to gently press it down - as Amy scolded me for doing so. It went down and stayed down and seemed pretty solid. Pretty confident the roof will be holding up well.
Oh yeah - that black thing you see in almost the middle of the photo? A grasshopper or locust decided to get stuck.
|A Grasshopper or Locust - Now Gone|
The bug pretty much fell apart a week later.
As Amy put the vent covers back on, we noticed we can still smell the roof (it has a particular "new rubber" smell), so it is still curing.
|Toward the back - a Week Later|
I took another photo as Amy was working on the MaxX-Air covers. You can see there are no bubbles now in the new roof, so the roof seems to be adhering to the old material well - as we had read it would, and had hoped.
|Roof Edge and look - no bubbles!|
The only area I am not satisfied with is a section along the driver side edge of the roof. Really nothing wrong with it - except I can see some of the old roof right on the edge. This might be because we pulled the painters tape off early. Later in the camping season I'm considering using some dicor lap sealant along that edge just to make sure we are sealing the old roof material as best as we possibly can.
Any questions or comments, let us know! Safe Travels - hope to see you camping or on the road!
