How Important Is A Shingle Sealer

Posted by roofcoadmin January 22, 2018

Before we go any further, let me just say that we wouldn’t have any problems with out roof if one thing didn’t happen. We wouldn’t need to put a single shingle sealer (try that, tongue-twister guys) or the more common elasto-seals if this wouldn’t have to happen regularly. What am I talking about? Well, it’s none other than this great mystery of “rain.” “What? All of that words-hype and all that you meant to say was that if there wasn’t rain or that rain probably occurred once a month, then we would be perfectly fine with whatever roof we have right now?”

The roof will not take care of itself

Rain is Good

Uhm, yeah, that’s exactly what I meant. But before you throw me off the roof (sorry, pun intended), please let me say my piece. Don’t get me wrong, rain is good thing. In fact, if you live in the tropical countries where the temperature seem to reach for the boiling point, it is a very good thing.

Here’s some interesting trivia (and something that might make you appreciate it more). The driest place on earth, meaning the location which receives the least amount of rainfall is a city in Chile, and it has an annual total rainfall of, get ready for this, 0.9mm(!). Or to put it another way, Whitehorse (Canada) gets 296 times that amount (and oh-by-the-way, Whitehorse is the driest place in Canada). How’s that for dry?


Rain not Good

Now, here’s the bad part. Even though rain is life-giving and earth-nurturing (to which I assume we can all agree), rain can also cause a lot of damage. What do I mean? Well, I’m not just talking about those areas that have suffered illegal logging and therefore have recurring flash floods during rainy seasons. I’m talking about western civilization in general and especially those who don’t take care of their buildings or home.

If you don’t take care of you homes, chances are the paint is going to come off faster, thereby reducing protection against mildew and bacteria; if you let the rood just get dilapidated and don’t really care about maintenance, it won’t matter what shingle sealer you use, it’s not about one thing, it’s a lifestyle and culture of your home.


Sealed and Approved

Pretty soon, you get those single droplets in the kitchen, and you think they’re just plumbing. And then another rainy season comes and more droplets. Pretty soon you’ll realise that it’s more than just the plumbing, it’s actually the whole roof starting to fall apart.

God forbid this happens to anyone but consider this a polite warning. The roof will not take care of itself. The roof will not seal itself from the rain. Your house will not maintain itself to your liking. It is your responsibility, and it is good to do it and be assured that it’s done properly, rather than wait for the droplets to become a waterfall before you start moving.
