Roof Caulking

Proper Roof Caulking Is An Absolute Must

Caulk is vital for roof installations or maintenance plans. It’s with caulk that you can get flashings on your roof to keep their seals intact. Caulk can help secure the drip guards and tiles around parts of your roof. There are times when caulk is used incorrectly. Flashings and other items might not hold their seals if the caulk isn’t applied correctly. 


Without proper caulk and sealants, water will eventually migrate right into your building, no matter how amazing your insulation and roof membrane are. An effective caulk bond may last for about five to ten years on average. The lifespan of the caulk will vary based on the condition in question. 


Whatever the case may be, prepare for what you can expect when getting a caulk bond ready. You must see that the bond is strong and will keep your roof intact for years.

Serious roofing problems should always be referred to a qualified roofer for repair before attempting any coating. Coatings cannot save worn-out, dried-out, or structurally weak roofs. 

The Right Caulking For Your Roof

If you have a residential or commercial roof which is flat, it absolutely should be sealed. Flat roofs can turn into pools of water during a heavy rainstorm or prolonged rain event. Although these roofs are designed to drain, rapid accumulations of rainfall can cause sitting water with nowhere to go. This water can quickly find its way to any vulnerability or crack in the roof, causing a roof leak or damage to the underlayment. A waterproof roof sealant will assist in keeping all water out until it has the opportunity to drain.


Sloped roofs have less problem with standing water for obvious reasons, but some many still benefit from a waterproof roof sealant coating. If your roof is older, this extra barrier will prolong its life by repelling excess water. You can also treat any roof with a UV-resistant coating, which will protect premature aging of the roofing materials caused by our harsh sunlight.


Asphalt shingle roofs often already contain reflective material in their granules, but an additional coating may help keep their integrity and extend their life span. Light metal roofing is also highly reflective by nature, as is white concrete or tile.

What Roof Caulking Does

You may have heard that a roof sealant will help to extend the life expectancy of your roof, or that a certain roof coating will help with energy efficiency.


Are there actually benefits to applying a sealant or coating to your residential or commercial roof? Roof caulking will help prevent water and other elements from getting into the inside of your home. This can be applied to some holes and cracks in your roof. While this can be done by the homeowner, we suggest having a roofing company do these types of repairs. The reason for this is because some cracks and repairs can not be fixed using caulking. 


Poorly used caulks on the roof joints and seams can cause problems in your commercial roof in several ways. It is vital to replace deteriorating caulk and sealants along the seams with a fresh layer to protect your roof and boost its durability.
