Ice and Water Shield
While North Carolina may be in the South, the winters here can get cold and snowy. You know that you need to treat your driveway when the temperatures drop to stay safe in the winter, but did you know that you should also treat your roof? Protecting your roof from the elements all year long can extend its lifetime and reduce any ice or snow-related problems, saving you stress and money down the road.
A roof ice and water shield will reduce the wear and tear on your roof and help preserve it throughout the seasons. The shield is easy to install, and we can add it to your roof for an extra layer of protection. You should consider a roof water shield to keep your North Carolina home safe.
What Is a Roof Ice and Water Shield?
A roof water and ice shield, sometimes called a protector, is a layer of waterproof membrane that underlays onto the roof to prevent water or ice from damaging the roof surface. This shield is made of a rubberized asphalt waterproofing compound that features fiberglass reinforcement and skid resistance. It has an adhesive back that attaches to rails on your roof’s weathering surface.
In addition to preventing damage from rain and snow, a roof protector can also help during high winds. The shield’s membrane stops strong winds from blowing shingles off your roof.
Why Get a Water and Ice Shield for Your Roof?
The benefits of using an ice and water shield include:
- Fewer leaks: A shield lowers your risk of developing a roof leak, which can be costly and cause significant damage.
- Peace of mind: When a big storm hits, you know you’ve protected your roof to the best of your ability.
- Excellent durability: Our ice and snow shield is easy to apply and is made of high-quality materials.
