Hi aquinob!

We are considering painting a portion of the very top of our Bubble with something white to help with heat and to hopefully help with sealing seams/rivets up there.

I've been reading various threads, and in one they discussed mold possibly growing on a painted white roof. Have you noticed this with the Ceramiflex painted roof? In Ohio, we have quite humid summers most of the time.

Thank you.

Deb

Havent seen any mold anywhere on the trailer. I think mold would be more a result of where you park it than a surface coating. I get mold growing on the north side of my house and nowhere else because it doesnt see any direct sun and has quite a bit of shade from a line of trees along the side of the house.

The ceramiflex certainly helps with the heat and sealing up the seams. There are other coatings that you can also use if you dont want to spend the bucks on this stuff.

Has anyone tried a pearl white on the roof?. Closer to a auto paint VS flat white. I have been thinking of a more glossy look. My though/ hope is that any white would be cooler.

Camping in the summer in FL the Trailer gets really hot. I was hoping a white roof would help?

Nice work on the roof prep and painting. Good writeup also. Thanks.

Might you be interested in selling some of your ceramiflex?

Dan

I was looking for a distributer of this ceramiflex. I was directed to a rep out of Oregon. He would not even discuss ceramiflex. Only enviroflex. VERY pricey. Didn't know much about his product either. Anyone have a connection in the NW for this stuff?

They have 'discontinued' production of Ceramiflex nationwide. I have pounded on warehouse doors... none to be found.

Sealoflex recommends Reflectowhite substitute.... not sure I will go that route...yet. About $150 / 5 gallons...plus shipping.

That's a shame, it was good stuff, very expensive, more than 150 for the 5 gallon bucket. But it is a commercial coating, and I guess if it doesn't sell in that venue, they aren't going to keep it around just for the airstream crowd. I wouldn't have a problem going with the reflectowhite, that was also mentioned at the time I bought the Ceramiflex. The reason I went with Ceramiflex was that someone else on the forum had used it successfully, and why mess with success. And except for getting a bit darker from dirt, it's holding up very well.

I think on the newer trailers, it's just a type of automotive grade paint.

I used Interlux Blue Glo white urethane $79 a gallon mixed with Interlux thinner. Looks great, very glossy but it's basically boat paint for aluminum and wood

Roof paint

Now that it has been a year and a half, how is the paint holding up?
Thinking of doing this job prior to solar panels. Have worked with interlude on boats. Some of the other products discussed in this thread either aren't available or are pricey. Any other pointers from your roof project? Thanks

Update.

http://www.hytechsales.com/prod2150.html

It has been about a year since my application to our 34' AS here in Texas.

Results:
- AC works much easier in summer and winter heating is much better.
- The stuff really radiates external heat and insulates from cold and heat better than the previously painted roof.
- No 'separation' anywhere on the roof is noted.
