Have you had a contractor seal the same leak countless times, only for the leak to return? Time to fix it for good with Through the Roof. 

Tired of leaks coming back with a vengeance? Looking for something to seal the leak, but don’t want to put your contractor through removing the past four roof repair products already tried on the leak? Allow us to save you some time, the product you are looking for is Sashco’s Through the ROOF!® 

Through the ROOF!® doesn’t require your contractor to remove existing repairs to use it, the product will stick to and seal a number of existing roof repair products, including: 

  • Asphalt 
  • Roof cement 
  • Bitumen products 
  • EPDM rubber* 
  • Most roof sheet coatings 
  • And more! 

Through the ROOF!® can even be applied in the middle of a rain or snow storm! 

*OK – one caveat: Silicone must be removed. Nothing sticks to silicone, including silicone, so it will have to come off. After testing several products, we’ve found that McKanica® Silicone Caulk Remover works the best. It’s available at hardware stores nationwide. 

Here’s how your contractor will do it: 

Through the ROOF! works great to repair cracked shingles and failed roof patches. 

1 - Thoroughly clean the surface. 
Make sure it’s free of dust, bird poo, loose or flaking roof materials, etc. And, as mentioned above, get rid of silicone if it’s present. 

2 - Apply Through the ROOF!® 
If they are using the brush-on formula, they will use a disposable foam paintbrush and apply no less than 1/16″ thick. If sealing cracks in existing asphalt roof repairs or other roof cement, make sure they get enough down in the cracked asphalt, as well as around the edges of the repair to truly ensure it’s sealed. 

3 - Enjoy staying dry. 
Congratulations! You finally sealed that nagging roof leak and can enjoy the fruits of your labor, namely a leak-free home. 

Don’t take our word for it 

Be sure to check out Through the ROOF!® reviews over at where survivors of years-long leaks have finally been able to say “five-year leak GONE!” This could be you, too. Then, hop in your car for a visit to your nearest Sashco retailer to pick up your own Through the ROOF!® before El Nino and hurricane season have you scrambling.
