Va. engine company expands to RV roofing

RICHMOND, Va. — Ray Taylor, founder of Raytek Inc. in Petersburg, expanded his company’s services last year when he began spraying polyurea on the roofs of recreational vehicles, reports the Richmond Times Dispatch.

“It helps protect the roof by creating a moisture barrier that’s virtually indestructible,” he said about polyurea, adding that it is the same material used on nuclear submarines to protect them against rust and leaks.

The polyurea that he sprays on roofs replaces a vehicle’s original factory-synthetic rubber roofing membrane, says the Richmond Times Dispatch.

“The weak link is the roof on all RVs, and most people that buy them do not know this until it’s too late,” he said.
