One of the RV problems we see from time-to-time at Coach Specialists of Texas in Fort Worth is paint delamination. Usually, it starts as just a small section of peeling that spreads over time to become quite an eyesore. As an RV owner, it can be very frustrating to see this happening to your motorhome’s exterior—and it’s a problem that can become exponentially worse over time. If not addressed, your clear coat can shows signs of peeling all over your motorhome.
If this is happening to your motorhome, you might be thinking about having it repaired, but are concerned about the costs. You might even be wondering if it’s worth it to repair the problem, since it seems mostly cosmetic and not structural. Before you decide to forgo this worthwhile repair in order to save some money, consider the following factors that can affect your cost:
The causes of your peeling clear coat.
At Coach Specialists of Texas, we don’t just treat the symptoms; we also treat what’s causing your damage. We will need to examine your RV for underlying reasons why your clear coat is peeling. Sometimes, it’s caused by a fault during the RV’s manufacturing. Other times, it’s caused by faulty paint work at another RV repair facility—if a shop uses incompatible layers of paint, for instance, the layers will begin to separate over time, leading to delamination. Sometimes, delamination is caused by general wear and tear, along with damage from exposure to the elements.
The extent of damage to your paint.
Sometimes, delamination will only occur in a small section of a motorhome, which can be very easy to fix, as long as your paint itself isn’t the culprit. We can simply sand down the damaged area and repaint as necessary. Other times, delamination will appear all over a motorhome and will require a full repaint of the vehicle, which can significantly add to your costs.
The amount of other damage involved.
The clear coat layer of your paint is necessary for the protection of your motorhome’s exterior. It provides a buffer between the elements and your underlying layers of paint. Once it’s been compromised, the layers of paint can chip away, making your motorhome more vulnerable to weather damage. If you have chipped layers of paint or areas of rust, it will require more materials and time to repair this damage, leading to increased costs. However, neglecting to have these areas repaired, can lead to much greater damage to your motorhome over time.
