Asphalt Shingle Roof Coating

Why should you invest in asphalt shingle roof coating?

Asphalt Shingle Roof CoatingEvery roof needs a coating. Depending on the material you choose for your roof, you may need only one coating or more. There are some coatings that would attend to half a dozen purposes. But such coatings are quite expensive. You may choose such types of asphalt shingle roof coating or you can opt for multiple treatments for adequate protection.

It is well known that asphalt is not the most durable of roofing materials. It is actually the weakest. Yet, it is very common because of its affordability. Asphalt shingle roofs are the cheapest. To ensure that the roof is well protected and that you don’t need to indulge in sporadic expenses on repairs and replacement, you must invest in an appropriate asphalt shingle roof coating.

  • The first reason why you need an asphalt shingle roof coating is to protect the material from UV damage. Asphalt cannot resist the UV rays of the sun. It is vulnerable to ozone exposure and chemicals or stains can also damage the material. You need an asphalt shingle roof coating that will protect the material from UV, ozone and chemicals. Such a coating often increases the solar reflectance of asphalt which is also necessary.
  • You need your roof to be protected against strong winds. Asphalt shingles are infamous for blow-offs and they can break, come apart or get severely damaged by strong winds. Thus, you need an asphalt shingle roof coating that will hold the shingles together and would create a layer of protection to let the strong winds pass without harming the integrity of the installation.
  • Asphalt roofs need to be waterproofed. Very well installed asphalt roofs will not leak every now and then. They would facilitate natural water runoff but you must have a waterproof coating for the odd days when it rains heavily. Natural degradation or deterioration of asphalt shingles also make the roof fragile and even the slightest rain can cause leaks. Also, trapped moisture will facilitate leaks so such a coating is essential.
  • An asphalt shingle roof coating is also necessary to prevent the growth of moss, mold and algae. Normal wear and tear can be prevented by such coatings. Such coatings will also protect the integrity of the installation and secure the deck or foundation underneath. You will also be able to protect your asphalt shingles from chipping, breaking, denting or blowing off.
