Type of rubber roof material

Well it happened! a tree branch punctured my roof. I have a temp repair on it with Flex seal tape but I want to do a permanent repair. Does anyone know what the roof material is? 2017 353RL High Country. I think its EPDM but I want to be sure.

Dieselguy wrote a post on determining which roofing material you have. Go HERE and read post #4.

My choice for roof repair is Eternabond. But I don't know if it is a strictly an EDPM application or if it can be used on TPO (I would think it can).

Eternabond will work on virtually any surface. http://www.eternabond.com/RoofSeal-p/rv-rs.htm

I agree, Eturnabond tape will stick to dam near anything. I have patched both TPO and EPDM with it.

Talking A $60 Investment worth its weight

That worked great. Once I was able to get up on roof and inspect - we just kept having rain - I could see where that high overhanging branch had scrubbed across the edge of the roof and had pinched in the water gutter for about 12'. I just fixed the gutter and applied 4" strips along the corner that looked gouged and that fixed it. So what I was scared was going to cost me, but I only had to spend $60 for a 4" x 50' roll. I have some left and like a lemming I ordered 8 tubes of Dicor caulk. I suppose I may need that some day. I wish I could post pictures, but I don't have a domain that's being hosted which is odd for me since I spent 30 plus years as an mercenary IT consultant and have hosted many sites and even got a first round of VC money for a site idea - about 6 weeks before the tech bubble burst. It's always about being in the right place at the right time.


Anyway, thanks to all who mentioned the Eternabond Tape that WILL STICK TO ANYTHING


BTW, another good investment is Google. In June they are doing a 20:1 split so I picked up 5 shares which will turn into $100. I was able to buy at a little over $2,500 p/share. If the price dips below $2,600 p/share it's a bargain. Personally, I think grabbing 5 shares at less than $2,800 p/share is still a bargain

It really doesn't matter which roof material you have, the Eternabond tape and the Dicor sealant will work for all.
