Why Bother Sealing the Caravan Roof?

Simple: to prevent water damage. Your caravan's roof battles the elements daily. A proper seal keeps water out, avoiding issues like mould, structural damage, and even a hit to your caravan's resale value.

When to Use Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant?

Look out for these signs:

  • Cracks or tears in the roof.
  • Water stains inside your caravan.
  • Mould or mildew.
  • Loose sealing around fixtures.


Guide to Liquid Rubber Application

  • Clean: A clean roof ensures better sealing. Scrub off dirt and debris, rinse, and dry.
  • Inspect: Check for damage. You'll need to address any issues before sealing.
  • Apply Sealant: Use a caravan-friendly sealant which is Liquid Rubber; applying it evenly across the surface.
  • Cure: Let the sealant cure for 24 hours, avoiding any moisture during this period.
  • Check: Inspect your work and touch up any missed spots. Annual inspections are best, but if your caravan faces the harsh Aussie sun daily, check more often.
