  • Roof sealant and tape

    What do they use for sealant around vents and such on the roof? I see Dicor has a self leveling and a non sag sealant. Also the Eternabond tape what width do you carry in case of a small tear in roof material. I want to keep some handy for emergencies like I had this past week.

    I have both 3" and a small amount of 4" (I think) Eternabond. Alpha Systems self-leveling has always been the recommendation but Dicor states is can be used on TPO roofs now. Grand Design CS has stated this also. I have used both and both are stable.

        I just applied some Alpha self leveling and I wouldn't say it is runny. It does self level but not like it is going to run all over the place. Once it skins over it is done self leveling. Temperature of the product and ambient temperature will have an affect.

        If you know you are going to use it I would suggest you try a little on a piece of cardboard so you get an idea of where and how much to apply for your application.

          Dennis66 I have used both Alpha and Dicor Sealant, and Eternabond tape. The Dicor I found bubbled up the material, but when it dried it did lay back down like normal. I now use the Alpha sealant to avoid this. Alpha now makes their own tape (Alphabond). The Grand Design presentation on maintenance recommended the use of Alpha tape and sealant to maintain your warranty.

          Do with that information what you like...

                  I checked the Lippert site and it looks like it only comes in 3&4"

                      In my experience, Lippert ships quick.
