Sealing Caravan Roofs
Liquid Rubber is a great option to fix leaks and water issues in caravans and caravan roofs. In this guide we will show you a step by step of how to patch and seal a caravan roof.
When it comes to fixing caravan roofs there are a few supplies you will find very helpful. Firstly of course rubber, geo fabric, and a brush and or roller to apply the product. Gloves will help keep your hands clean and make the prossess more simple. Generally we recomend grey rubber for roofs and caravan roofs as it is designed to be used in areas exposed to UV.
The first step is to clean the caravan roof or problem area so it is clean and dry ready for the waterproofing process. The best way to do this is to give it a light pressure clean with a small water blaster or high powered hose.
Once the caravan roof area is clean and dry it is time to apply the rubber. Apply Liquid rubber to the problem area wider than the geofabric width ensuring the rubber is applied a minimum of 3mm thick.
At this point we will apply the geo fabric over the rubber to provide strength and flexibility to the problem area. Lay out the geo fabric to measure the amount needed and cut to size. Then lay geofabric ensuring that you work it into the base layer of the Liquid Rubber. Geo fabric is an important part of this waterproofing process as it gives strenth to any joints or cracks that are weak points where water could be getting in.
