Roof cement is every homeowner’s best friend. By roofing cement, we mean the sticky stuff that keeps your roof intact, not the cement that encloses a bunker you may have constructed in your back yard if you live on Tornado Ally or used for southwest adobe houses. That cement can come in the form of tar, adhesive and all temperature caulk. The substance that demands the greatest amount of care and caution is Karnack roofing tar.
The first major reason for respecting what is affectionately known as goop, or roofing tar, is that if you don’t, you may get it all over. And we mean all. This is a job that you probably want to leave with your local roof repair guy. Because it is sticky and drips and you are putting it where you are walking and kneeling and the wind is blowing, roofers have found that when you use even just a little, it can go a long way.
Roofing tar or any other type of adhesive is also the proverbial finger in the hole in the dyke. Every crack, nail hole, seam and opening in your roof is the potential for a flood of rain and/or melted snow to get into the whole of your house and cause major damage. So even though you may want to use just a little because it is so messy, make sure you use enough to totally seal roof paper, asphalt shingles, rubber roofing, vents, skylights and any other reason why you have a hole in your roof.
