Pros & Cons: One Coat Roof Seal Compared to Other Roof Sealing Materials

When you find a leak in your roof it can be a worrying time if you aren’t familiar with the available roof sealing products on the market. It can also be a costly task to find out that you’ve purchased a substandard product and then have to purchase another as the problem has persisted.

If you have found a leak in your roof, then worry not as there are a range of superior One Coat Roof Seal products available to repair the roof leak quickly and easily.

All Weather Roof Sealer – Perfect for the Rainy Irish Climate

apply in any weather conditions - rain safe in 15 minutes - pros and cons of one coat roof seal compared to other roof sealing materials

You do not need to wait for perfect weather conditions before fixing the roof leak with Bond It One Coat Roof Seal, as these products can be applied in any weather conditions and are rain safe within 15 short minutes – reducing the chance of additional damage occurring while having to delay taking action. Other products on the market such as polyurethane, GRP or fibreglass must be applied in specific weather conditions on a perfectly dry surface to avoid flaking, and require multiple layers to be effective, including a primer, resin and top coat. This adds on additional waiting times into the process for each coat to cure, and unnecessary weight to your roof structure.

apply to damp surface - pros and cons of one coat roof seal compared to other roof sealing materials

In comparison, the Bond It One Coat Roof Seal products are one part systems that can be applied straight from the tin to the surface of the roof, even if the roof is damp, requiring only one 1mm coat on all substrates apart from bitumen, where we recommend adding a coat of primer for optimum protection against the leak in your roof.

Durability of Roof Sealant

Due to its non-shrinking and non-cracking qualities, Bond It One Coat products do not need to be regularly reapplied like its main competitors such as GRP – which has the tendency to degrade, lose elasticity and wrinkle or crack. Cosmetically, using Bond It One Coat Roof Seal means less work to hide or repair the damage done, as it can be directly painted over and made to look like new, while obtaining the same like-new appearance. This is unlike other roof sealing products which can cause problems when painted over.
