American Roofing Association Advises Caution When Applying Any Coating To Steep Slope Asphalt Shingles
According to a recent article at professional
Homeowners need to weight the pros and cons of applying any coatings to their ashpalt shingles.
The shingle is designed to allow water permeability, and putting any acrylic or latex could trap water beneath the shingle into the plywood sheathing and trusses causing thousands in damage.
It is also critical to apply the coaiting properly. If there is any mold, mildew or algae on the shingle it should be cleaned with a bleach.
The promotional material by the coating industry states the environmental benefits of the product, as it extends the life of the shingle and reduces landfill waste. But be warned your roof may be leaking and your family getting wet from the inability of these coatings to allow water to drain off your roof.
Our advise, save the money and maintain your roof annually with our annual soft clean system.
