Winter Roof Restoration? It is possible!

Vancouver, November 12, 2009 – Through the dark and rainy months on the West Coast of Canada and the USA, few people would think about restoring a wood roof. Yet with some of today’s finishing products, all you need is a few days without rain, and temperatures above freezing.
 
Power washing the surface can obviously be done in the rain, although extra care must be taken if there is any frost or ice at all on the surface. This is also the season for spotting leaks, so it’s a good time to get up into the attic, and then make all your structural and flashing repairs. Once the surface is properly prepared, it’s time for the finish.
 
BRODA® PRO-TEK-TOR Roof Treatment (RT) Natural Oil Wood Finish is water-borne, so it can be successfully applied even if the wood is still a bit damp. It will penetrate and dry as long as the roof is frost-free, the temperature is above freezing and it does not get rained on for 48 hours.
 
BRODA® PRO-TEK-TOR Roof Treatment offers excellent water repellency, while allowing the roof to “breathe”. It contains industrial pigments for superior UV protection, reduces moss and algae growth and, with regular maintenance, extends life of your roof. Professional application is recommended. This product is also low-VOC, and all brushes and equipment can be cleaned up with soap & water.
 
So if your roof needs refinishing on the off-season, talk to your contractor about BRODA®.
