Regardless of what type of roofing system you have on your home, it’s important to understand that any type of roof can be susceptible to water leaks. Unfortunately, if your roof develops a leak, it can not only lead to a significant amount of damage, but it can also lead to high repair bills. Many leaks go undetected until the damage has spread to other areas of the structure.

The best way to protect your home from the devastating effects of water damage is to have a water resistant sealant applied to your roof. Of course, there are many products on the market that claim to be able to make your home watertight, however, many of these products will likely not live up to your expectations. There can be a huge difference between the various components of any sealer or coating that you can apply to your roof and sometimes these products are just not reliable. Additionally, if the roof is not properly prepped before being sealed, or the product is not applied properly, the adhesion that is necessary for a good seal will not take place. This can result in an ineffective bond that can leave your roof vulnerable to water leaks; a frustrating experience, especially after you had already invested so much into trying to create a watertight barrier for your home. There is no substitute for a professional performing this delicate work. If each step is not completed effectively then your roof will not be watertight.
