I agree with Ed. Not enough information to form opinions. However, a roof should need no sealants if it is applied correctly. What is leaking?

Most products can withstand freezing temps once they are applied/cured. But not all products can withstand freezing temps while still in the tube.


As the others have said - more details would help us help you better.

Caulks work on roofs too. Does not have to be tar base. I think osi quad depends on solvent evaporation to cure, not water base which I assume can freeze before curing. More important will be working carefully on a roof while the body is freezing.

I have always used polyurethane caulk. The black stuff. I have tried every thing else out there. I’ve had problems with silicone, and any type of latex. Silicone tends to constrict and separate after a few years. Latex(even the fortified stuff) is just not suitable for roofs.
