Asphalt Shingle cear sealant from Armor Garage


Has anyone used Armor Shingle Roof Coating?

My roof is 11 years old and takes a beating from the sun. I am looking to get more years out of it but I am loosing a lot of granules. The asphalt shingle roof that I have is a good one, OC Pro 30, but I think the UV rays down here in the south is kicking its butt!

I have never seen a product that, when applied to an asphalt roof, tangibly extended its lifespan.

That's quite an expensive bucket of coating.

How big is this roof & have you figured out how many buckets you need?

Not seeing the condition of the roof it is hard to say, got any pics?

Just replace the shingles with metal, tile, or something else that will last more than 11 years. It'll be a hell of a lot more cost-effective to replace a major part of your house every decade… If you say you can't afford it, I'll reply that you can't afford to replace your shingles every 11 years! That's just crazy.

can say weather the UV rays here in AZ are any worse but ive never seen a problem with granules coming off shingles even at 16 years of age. now i do remember way back 30 years ago when the shingles wernt fiberglass the granules would come off after 20 years.
