liquid roof sealer


I have also been researching "Roof-It" by Chiri Enterprises. As a commercial property manager who has used coating systems on built-up roofs with mixed results, I am skeptical of using something like it on my home. I have an asphalt shingle roof that is 10 years old and is in excellent condition...just in a god-awful color. We are going to be remodeling our home and have the opportunity to change the "style" of our home from no-style to Spanish but the existing roof color (light grey) prevents us from doing so. If anyone has any true insight I would really appreciate it! I just would hate to miss the opportunity to make the aesthetic changes to our home if something like this product can make it possible. Thanks for your help!!

I'll give the stock answer. Stay away from bucket roof products.

I use some roof products in buckets, but I know what to use and when to use them and how to use them.

All I can say is that McDonald's paints their shingle roofs, with mixed results.

Amib, what types of coatings have you tried, and what were the results of the various tipes for the applications specified?

Alice, what purpose are you trying to serve? Colorant? Sealant? Flat roof? Shingle roof?

Aaron B - The commercial products I have used really aren't my concern. I'm just trying to find out if there is a way to change the appearance (color) of my roof short of replacing a perfectly functional roof. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

liquid roof sealer


Sorry AaronB! I didn't mean to come across rude. To be honest I don't remember what the material was we applied. I just remember the name of the company that installed it but wouldn't honor the warranty. The manufacturer went out of business but I can't remember their name. I think the installer went out of business too. It was installed about 8 years ago and was supposed to have a 15 year warranty but we ended up having to replace both roofs we used it on in less than 5 years. We just couldn't keep up with all the cracking, peeling, and leaking. The company I worked for at the time (a large international industrial developer and owner) no longer considers coating systems as a result.

It's a shame to lump all fluid products into one category.

Good day -

Anyone interested in aesthetic changes ie coloring their roofs need not fear using Roof-IT .

Product is a water based liquid polymer coating. Fast drying - forming a rock hard finish.

Product has been in market (internet) since 1995 . customer satisfaction has been 100% on asphalt shingle roofs.

NOT only can we custom color to your needs but product will reinforce shingles and prevent any leaks from happening. Visit site ans eee for yourself - company also offers SAMPLE to test. http://www.roof-it.ca

my wife and I tried Roof-it--not only did we change the color of our old roof --it stopped a persistant leak that roofing experts could not stop--Honestly a great product!! Highly recommended.

I have been researching this product and can't find anything, can you please provide more feedback. How long have you had it and how easy was the application?

very old thread but if you are refering to roof-it, the poster is spamming his product in the first post and the "testimonial" posted right after is him trying to make himself look better.

I also would like to know if ROOF IT liquid sealer works. I have several leaks on porch that for so long have been trying to stop. I don't want to order it just to find out that doesn't work, besides the product isn't any cheap.
