How Can Roof Coating Extend the Life of My Roof?

In addition to our fantastic roof repair and replacement services, Summit Environmental Solutions is also offering Shingle Shield roof coating! While homeowners insurance can cover roof damage from hail storms or critters, they will not cover regular wear and tear, so protecting your roof from the elements is crucial in extending its lifespan. Roof coating is a spray-on sealant for roofs that protects against UV damage, moss growth and water infiltration, while also improving the energy efficiency of your home! 

What Causes Roof Damage?

Hail and critters are known to cause immediate, emergency roof repairs, but there are a myriad of environmental factors that also degrade your shingles over time. The UV rays from the sun can prematurely age your shingles, which can cause them to warp and crack over time. Rainwater and other precipitation like melted snow can infiltrate the roof if it is not properly sealed, which can lead to water leaks in the home, as well as mold and mildew growth. If water is getting into your attic, this can also affect the effectiveness of your attic insulation. Moss can often grow on aging roofs which can deteriorate the shingles and affect your home’s appearance. 

What is Shingle Shield Roof Coating?

Shingle Shield roof coating is a spray-on product that quickly dries and forms a rigid seal. This sealant barrier is effective at resisting UV rays, water infiltration and moss growth. Shingles have small granules on the outside that protect the roof, and over time, many of these granules are lost due to environmental factors. Shingle Shield keeps these granules in place, which keeps the shingles in better condition for longer. In addition, Shingle Shield roof coating prevents the breakdown of the roof tar that forms the base of your roof. Roof coating is a process that can extend the lifespan of your home by 5-10 years. 

Benefits of Shingle Shield Roof Coating

Shingle Shield roof coating has a high level of UV resistance that safeguards your shingles against cracking and warping, which is crucial for maintaining the structural integrity of the roof. Shingle Shield also forms a waterproof barrier, making sure a single drop doesn’t get through to your roof. Virginia weather is unpredictable, so this is a great way to defend your shingles against heavy rain, snow, and ice. Shingle Shield roof coating also defends against the growth of moss. 

In addition, Shingle Shield can also improve your home’s energy efficiency! The roof coat formed by Shingle Shield can reflect sunlight, which means your home is absorbing less heat in the summer, which means you won’t have to use as much energy to heat the home. Shingle Shield is a product that can be sprayed on, meaning it can be applied to many different kinds of roofs, including shingled roofs, flat roofs and metal roofs.
