Euroshield® vs. Hailstorms
Rubber shingles are a budget-friendly solution for homeowners. They are not only eco-friendly, but they also come in different colors and designs. One of the companies that manufactures rubber shingles is Euroshield®. This company’s roofing products are made of about 95% recycled material. Moreover, their products can withstand extreme weather conditions, including rain, snow and hail.
Garlock-French Corporation, one of the leading roofing contractors in the area, describes Euroshield.
How Euroshield® Is Made
A tire is made up of over 200 ingredients. All of these serve an important role in ensuring the functionality of the tire. Even if it’s not in use anymore, tires retain their durability and still can be used after they are recycled.
Euroshield has a patented process for creating rubber shingles from used tires. Tires are originally made to be strong enough to handle weight and speed. This characteristic remains even after the tire is transformed into a roofing material. With the extreme impacts that hailstorm can deliver, Euroshield® is confident that their rubber roofing shingles can resist hail without flinching.
Rubber roofing offers high-quality performance. However, just like metal roofing, steel roofing and others, it can also experience wear and tear. Here are some tips on how you can maintain your rubber roof:
Always check if there are some limbs and debris on your rubber roof. Remove them right away to prevent buildup. This also helps prevent your roof from being damaged.
Clean your rubber roof regularly. You may use a solution that combines a dishwashing detergent and water. Avoid cleaning solutions that have citrus ingredients or petroleum solvents. This can harm the rubber. In addition, there are cleaning solutions for rubber roofs available in the market that you can purchase.
Check your rubber roof to see if it has cracks or torn areas. You may apply a butyl rubber repair and sealing tape to cover these. If unsure, you can also hire roofers to help.
