Preparing Roofs for Winter

white copolymer coating on rooftop - 2

With winter quickly on its way you are likely preparing your house for the snow, blustery winds, and cold weather. From putting in your storm windows to turning the heat on you likely have a long list of things to do before Old Man Winter blows in. One thing that you may not put too much thought in to before winter is your roof; if you haven’t experienced any leaks or mishaps through the spring, summer, and fall you may wonder what could possibly go wrong because of a bit of snow. But where there is snow piling up there is sure to be water close behind as the snow melts and if you don’t want to risk that water seeping into your home then you may want to be proactive about it.
One great way to ensure that your home will stay dry this winter is by coating your roof with ArmorRoof for shingles. This product is an acrylic sealant that is easily applied on your roof and fights back against moisture, mildew, fungi formation, and dirt pickup. While ArmorRoof will not repair large holes or cracks it does offer a waterproof coating that will give you that extra layer of comfort and security this winter. Instead of worry about whether or not melted snow or rain water is going to get in and create a potentially hazardous environment in your home you can focus more on spending time with your family and working on other, more important, home projects like putting up the Christmas tree.
Once you make the decision to coat your roof with ArmorRoof it is time to start the application process. The first thing that you must do is clean your roof thoroughly; this will ensure that applying the product goes smoothly. Next repair any holes or cracks that you find in the roof while cleaning as ArmorRoof is waterproof but it will not patch a gaping hole. And lastly you can apply the product using a brush, roller, or spray; two coats of the ArmorRoof are recommended and if you desire a glossier finish then you may want to add an extra coat or two.
Keep your home protected this winter by preparing your roof now. When that first big snow storm hits and you are finding that neighbors may be enduring leaky roofs you will be thanking yourself for investing in our product and dedicating a weekend to ensuring the job is done well.
