roof repair problem

Posted 11-17-2017 at 09:28 AM by B and R

[QUOTE=B and R;2035369]Hello all, 1987 32' Airstream Argosy. Purchased this summer. PO said roof was sealed within a year. ok roof leaked near the bathroom vent and the bedroom vent. just a few drips but none the less I wanted to fix. My inspector indicated the roof needs to be resealed. I looked and it has many areas where the roof material or epoxy is shrinking/cracked or separating. Long story short I found a travel trailer repair person that is quite knowledgeable but has not discovered how to get the epoxy glue off the roof to clean it for a new seal job. He has tried a sander, wheel brush nothing seems to remove this gray coating of epoxy.

Thoughts? Anyone know of a chemical or product that will loosen it up for removal? This is a huge job and has to be cleaned before it can be resealed. I will add pictures soon.
Thanks all.
Bob Will post pictures as soon as I can figure it out .lol
