A wise and worthwhile expense for your roof is to have a sealant applied to it. Sealants vastly lengthen the lifetime of a roof by preventing decay, corrosion, fire, and leaks. Specific sealants can even save you money on energy costs, as they can prevent unnecessary outside heat from entering your home. They can be a game changer for your roof and your home. Before you jump on board, certainly you would like to know the pricing information for sealants. Please be informed of said information as you read on:
There are various costs that go into having a roof sealed. For instance, a roofer may charge a premium for applying sealant to a sloped roof as opposed to a flat one. Reason being, there is more danger when working on a sloped roof. The sealant itself, however, may cost more on flat roofs because flat roofs are generally more porous, meaning they cannot withstand water as well as a sloped roof. Higher quality or more quantity of sealant will be needed for flat roofs.
Sealant is charged by the gallon. Furthermore, a gallon will cost $10 to $30 (depending on the type and brand) and a gallon will generally cover up to 100 square feet. The product itself will be your primary expense if you apply the sealant on your own.
On the other hand, a professional roofer will charge a specific amount per square foot of the roof in which the sealant is being applied. Typical professional pricing ranges as low as $0.25 to as high as $2.50 per square foot.
Keep in mind, each sealant will possess its own qualities and benefits. Not all sealants are energy-friendly and not all sealants are bacteria preventers. Ultimately, you pay for what you get.
Total Cost of Sealant Installation
Per improvenet, the average cost to have sealant applied to a roof is $1,109. $65 on the lowest end and $5,000 on the highest end. A part of pricing is dictated by the location of your home. For example, if you home exists in a particularly rainy, or bad weather climate, then it may cost more to have sealant professionally installed to your roof rather than a roof subject to a dryer climate.
In addition, type of roof and roof material are other factors that will influence pricing. Though, these factors won’t affect pricing in any shocking way. Generally, contractors will charge in the previously mentioned range of $0.25 to $2.50 per square foot. Cost per square foot is more standardized; you’ll have to speak with the contractor directly about potential additional costs or fees.
