Roof sealants slows the natural wear and tear, helping to prevent deeper, multi-layer issues down the road.
Every roofing system has a life cycle. Over time, daily exposure to sun, wind, precipitation and debris contribute to normal wear and tear of any roofing system. Roof sealants slows the natural wear and tear, helping to prevent deeper, multi-layer issues down the road. This simple preventative application acts as a strong barrier against the sun, rainwater and other environmental elements, prevents mold and mildew, and overall acts as a protective, durable shield for your roofing system.
There are immense protective benefits that come from utilizing a roof sealant. Guy Roofing’s roof sealants are a viscous material that solidifies after application, offering superior protection against dust, water, heat, pollutants, and other atmospheric contaminants. Additionally, this protective layer doubles as a heat reflector to keep your roof's surface cool, which significantly lowers building cooling costs.
Roof sealants are available for all types of roofing materials, including shingles. Whether applied to small weak spots or the full roofing area, sealants are an excellent way to extend the life of your roofing system. If you’re curious about what sealants work best for your home, Guy Roofing educates homeowners and business owners on the different types of sealants available for each roofing material for the best possible protection.
Roof sealants are either a water-based compound or a solvent-based compound. Water-based sealants are easier to apply, don’t emit harmful odors, and are less expensive than solvent-based; overall, however, water-based sealants are less weather-resistant and don’t last as long. Solvent-based sealants emit hazardous fumes, are more expensive and difficult to apply, though they last longer and are more resilient. The primary sealant materials are acrylic, polyurethane, rubber, and silicone.
