Roof-Guard 101 is a Patent Pending acrylic formulation that attaches granular on asphalt roofs
Roof-Guard 101 is a Patent Pending acrylic formulation that attaches granular on asphalt roofs. Roof-Guard 101 does not crack, yellow, or decompose from Ultra Violet Radiation. Roof-Guard 101 carries a 100% warranty for (5) FIVE years against mold, mildew, algae, and granular loss when applied properly. We do not warrant against wind damage, although recent wind tunnel testing has proven uplift characteristics are significantly reduced by over 215%, while increasing the wind resistance by over 65%.
Roof-Guard 101 roof sealer significantly eliminates wind uplift or the wing effect to shingle roofs thus reducing the cause of over 60% of reported damage due to wind and water damage. All manufactured home roofs treated with low roof pitch (3 on 12 or less) being the most vulnerable, showed no damage after facing wind gusts to 130 mph. during Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
During the 2004 Hurricane season, the test roofs treated with Roof-Guard 101 over a four year period had no losses reported. These roofs in East and Central Florida were subjected to three storms within three weeks and experienced sustained winds of up to 130 mph. Hurricane protection is accomplished by reducing wind friction and locking down the asphalt shingle tabs on all exposed sides. This is performed by application techniques and the ability of Roof-Guard 101 to wick under the shingles thus locking them down to one another.
When the 2005 storms hit the Gulf coast we had installed over 400,000 square feet of roofs throughout the Gulf and Atlantic Coast areas; again, no loss of shingles. Today as of August of 2006 we have now installed over 3,000,000 square feet and moving on at about 2 to 300,000 ft2 per month.
Roof-Guard 101 has successfully passed the Florida Wind and water testing with NO wind uplift; FBC TF 95-100 for 110 sustained to 130 mph wind gusts; demonstrating no water intrusion on 60 MPH rated shingles.
Roof-Guard 101 exceeds FEMA recommendations as noted in written statements to the Florida Department of Community Affairs. (11- 2004).
