Heng's Industries has introduced an innovative way to protect and renew any RV roof.
The new silicone roof system installs directly over the existing EDPM, TPO, PVC, Aluminum or Fiberglass roof. Heng's GacoRoof is a 100 percent Silicone Roof Coating that creates a seamless membrane to seal and repair existing roofs, while permanently protecting them against leaks, ponding water and the damaging effects of severe weather.
Silicone is superior to other surfaces for many reasons including, flexibility, strength, lack of black streaks and easy cleaning. The system needs no maintenance, no special cleaners and will not break down over time like other coating and membranes, according to a press release. The system is ideal for use on flat, radius and sloped roofs including travel trailers, fifth wheels, motorhomes and more.
The" RENEWING" process can be done in one day. The System is simple to install: Clean, Seal, Coat and Top Coat. The finished product will be 22-24 millimeters in thickness. The bright white finish will reflect 90 percent of the sun's rays, keeping the RV cooler in the summer and improving the AC efficiency.
