Scotchgard Protector Benefits

People all over the world trust Scotchgard Protector more than any other brand of protection, it’s the recognized leader proven to be durable and effective. The right shingles can give your home a beautiful, distinctive finish. Unfortunately, most roof shingles available today are susceptible to ugly black streaks caused by algae. Scotchgard Protector is an industry-leading defense against black streaks caused by algae, and shingles featuring Scotchgard Protector are the only Holmes-approved roofing solution for algae protection. Why is that important? Because Mike Holmes accepts nothing less than top-performing products that are proven to last.

Normal shingle manufacturers apply 3 to 6% copper per shingle to prevent algae growth and the black streaks that come with it. With Scotchgard Protector, roughly 10-13% of the shingle is applied copper, which makes these shingles more than twice as capable to protect your roof.

3M pioneered the science of algae protection, with products that result in the protection of your home’s beauty and against black streaks caused by algae that last the life of your roof. Scotchgard Protector uses copper-containing granules with a proprietary 3M porous ceramic coating that allows for copper ions to release slowly over time. These 3M copper granules are blended to a minimum of 10% with other standard colored granules on the shingle, and each application is verified by a third party to ensure the process is accurate and the shingles are of the highest quality. Finally, Atlas Shingles offers a lifetime algae resistance warranty to ensure that if any algae cause problems for your roof that Rojas Roofing will be there with fresh Atlas Shingles to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
