What Is The Best RV Roof Coating?

August 1, 2022

Making sure that your roof is properly sealed is a vital component to making your RV last as long as possible. The quality of the material that you use has a huge impact on your RV and its roof. But what kind is the best? Here are some important distinctions between the different types of RV roof coatings, and what our top choice is at Elite RV Roof & Collision.

What Are The Main Types Of RV Roof Coatings?

There are, of course, many different brands offering varying qualities of RV roof coatings. Then once you find a brand that is a good quality, there are different types of roof coatings. It’s understandable that this can be confusing. The three main types of coatings are urethane roof coatings, acrylic roof coatings, and silicone roof coatings.

Urethane Roof Coating

What exactly is urethane? A urethane is a widely used, versatile compound. While being very similar to rubber, but isn’t quite rubber. This type of RV roof coating is often the best for those who like to travel offroad quite often. Urethane RV roof coatings guard the roof against impacts from small debris while also maintaining good UV resistance. However, this type of RV roof coating is a bit more expensive than others but you are definitely getting your money’s worth due to the quality.

Acrylic Roof Coating

An acrylic RV roof coating is great if you’re on a budget. While it does offer some protection, it’s not nearly as high of a quality material compared to something like a urethane coating. It provides protection against leaks and UV rays, but degrades a bit faster than other types of coatings. Plus, it requires two coats when installing a new coating.

Silicone Roof Coating

A middle-ground option for RV roof coating is the silicone coating. In general, it’s slightly more expensive than the acrylic coating but less expensive than a urethane coating. However, it offers significantly more protection against water leaks and damage compared to an acrylic coating. It’s also more durable, and tends to last longer.
