Asphalt roof shingles need strong materials to stay perfectly aligned and still on top of your roof deck through different seasons. And the best way to do that is through hand sealing roof shingles manually instead of relying on adhesive bonds.
Dynamic Roofing Concepts, the area’s leading metal roof installation company, discusses why hand sealing is a wiser choice for asphalt roofs than other sealing methods.
The Purpose of Asphalt Shingle Fasteners
Improper or damaged fasteners are the start of your roofing system’s deterioration. The only reason why asphalt shingles stay attached to the roof deck is because of the fasteners. Without them, the shingles would easily fly off or curl, leaving your roof vulnerable to harsh weather.
Hand Sealing vs. Self-Adhesive Bonds
All roofing systems are bound to your roof deck by specialized seals or roof nails, whether they are common as asphalt roofs or durable as tile roofing systems. There are two ways to do this: through hand sealing or using self-adhesive bonds. Despite their equal advantages when it comes to weatherproofing, hand sealing has proven to be more beneficial for asphalt roofs because the thoroughness involved in the the procedure produces better results against tough weather.
Inspecting a Roof Fastener’s Condition
Never skip on regular roof evaluations. When scheduling inspections, you should communicate with your contractor regarding the condition of your roof sealant and fasteners. The contractors can also determine whether your shingles or clay tiles need extra reinforcements to protect your house better from upcoming storms.
