Roof replacement

Post by Rodwhirity »

Hi all when I bought my 1993 24ft safari the guy forgot to mention the leaks in the roof so now it looks like a new roof will be needed ,can anyone recommend where I could buy a roll of grp in the 🇬🇧? Inside the ply has gone bad from the bathroom outer wall as far as the Aircon unit facing the entrance door so I will be replacing that oh and the ply under the fibreglass roof is also bad .

If you mean FRP here's a U.S. source for 8.5 foot wide by 25, 30, 35 and 40 foot rolls.

If it leaks due to failed sealant the roof may not need replacement just resealing. But all the old sealant must be removed. I had massive leaks, 21 out of 22 seal points leaked. The interior roof was compromised in every area. If you look thru the link there are projects on roof repairs that might give you some ideas. A lot of people reseal and paint with elastomer paint or marine paint. I will use Jerry Plante's method for the final covering which was marine paint.
