Rainy Season May Mean Roof Leaks… We Can Help!

rv leak detection leak repair winterization roof leak Over here in the Pacific NW, we’re no strangers to the rain. It is an ongoing joke around here that we have two seasons, “Rain and road construction.”. Hilarious, right? Not so funny if you live here and know that it is, in fact, true. Along with all that rain can come water leaks in your RV. Water sealants can only hold up for so long, and eventually they will break down and need to be repaired. You may also develop a leak in any place that you may have “bumped” into something in the past and broken a seal. Many people park their RV’s for the winter only to find a unit damaged from months of leaking in the spring.  At this point in the year, we’ve had plenty of rain so you should be able to check your unit now and find any potential leaks and get them repaired before they cause too much damage. Depending on your RV, it may have a fiberglass, metal, vinyl, or rubber roof. Most newer RV’s have rubber roofs, and depending on your level of skill and comfort being a do-it-yourselfer, you may be able to find the leak and seal it on your own. The problem is, sealing up the leak and stopping the water may not be the end of it. Depending on how long your roof has been leaking, there may be damage done to other parts of  your RV that are not immediately visible to you. You may have mold or wood rot to contend with, and repairing these may take you out of your comfort zone. There are many methods available online to test for leaks and instructions on how to repair a basic roof leak yourself, but if you’re not comfortable doing it on your own, we can help. In our State Of The Art 12 bay service facility, we have sophisticated technology to search out and find any leaks, as well as a rain booth where we can recreate rainy weather conditions to help locate a problem. We also boast the best staff of highly skilled, certified factory trained and technicians to fix your rig up as good as new. Don’t wait until it’s too late to find out that you have water damage. Now’s the time to take a proactive approach and save yourself an even bigger headache later.
