FAQ

SEAL – PROTECT – EXTEND

Can I apply Roof-Reflect™ onto my new shingled roof?
Yes. Roof-Reflect™ is designed to be applied to new shingles, but it is best to wait approximately six (6) months to allow the new shingles to de-gas. New shingles experience most of it plasticizer leaching within the first six (6) months, after being installed. Roof-Reflect™ could trap in the asphalt’s plasticizer, which could interfere with Roof-Reflect™ adhesion to the shingle substrate.
Can I apply Roof-Reflect™ onto an older shingled roof?
Yes, Roof-Reflect™ is designed to be applied to an older and aged shingled roofs, as long as the shingled roof is just aged, and relatively good shape – with no leaks, shingle damage, or loss of shingles, curled-shingles, nail-pops, or algae-growth.
How do I apply Roof-Reflect™ to a shingled roof?
Roof-Reflect™ can be applied by spray, roller or brush.
How do I prepare my shingled roof before applying Roof-Reflect™?
The shingled roof must be clean, free of debris, and free of algae-growth before applying Castle-Armor™. Any rust stains, algae, shingle blemishes, etc. will be forever sealed in by our Roof-Reflect™.
How much Roof-Reflect™ will it take to do my shingled roof?
Every shingled roof is different. Different manufacturer, type, age, and condition. Therefore each shingled roof will use slightly different amounts of Roof-Reflect™ to obtain the proper coverage. Walters’ Coatings recommends two (2) applications for proper coverage. The second application will require significantly less Roof-Reflect™. Walters’ Coatings research indicates coverage of 75 sq. ft. per gallon for a 15 year aged shingled roof in good condition. The second application coverage was 150 sq. ft. per gallon.
