If your existing roof is still in relatively good shape they can apply right over it and get the same results. My roof rubber was in very poor shape for several reasons so I elected to have it torn off and go from there.

Before putting the fabric down, the tech rolled a coat of the same material as they use for the final coat. He then carefully laid down the fabric and then rolled two more coats of the liquid material on top and he was done. The whole process took three long days and with about one day being used to take off the old rubber and all the things attached.

The nice thing about the whole process is that he came to our family campground located in the middle of a national forest and quite a ways from a city. He had his own trailer which he parked in a clearing in the woods not far from us so he was able to start early and work late.
We invited him to stay and sit around the campfire but he was too tired and wanted to get to his own trailer to rest and sleep.

RVFlexarmour. I had ours done at RVRoofs of Dallas . Their shop is actually just off I35 in Denton. It's a spray process that must be done in thier controlled environment. Adds about 3/16 to a 1/4 thicck coating. All vents, fans ,& skylights replaced. AC's are removed so entire roof sprayed and they spray over the front cap seam about 8 inchs.
I think it's the best way of all the good ways to do a roof.

I think this company is the one the OP is talking about.
There have been several forum members who have had this process done.

I had mine done several years ago. My roof was completely torn off and replaced in three days by a very conscientious and well trained technician from RV Armor.
They came to my trailer location out in the woods and did it right there on site. The cost was just a bit over $6000 which included the removal of a ton of Eternabond tape. I am completely thrilled with the work done and how the roof looks now. No more worry about leaks.

As you can see by the pictures below, my roof looked terrible but was not leaking a bit as evidenced by the condition of the wood after the rubber was torn off. I was a bit worried but knew I had been quite proactive in taking care of it for the past 17 years. I would have no worries about recommending this company if you are looking to repair your roof or are interested in getting the longest life possible out of your rig.

I have never done it or seen it before, however I have heard it may add considerable weight, not positive on the subject.
If you cannot take good care of what you have, you will not have anything good for very long!!!

No matter what the product used & how it is applied the big unknown is the condition of the roof & how much time will be needed to prepare it for the new coating. That is where the money will be.
