Excellent tips here from Robert. Look closely for worn shakes.
The coating you're referring to is an extremely durable, penetrant sealant and is specifically designed with tenacious adhesion to be used to restore coarse or highly weathered surfaces. It can be used on concrete block, brick, stone, precast concrete, slate, wood shake, metal, stucco and wood.
When you see this coating, you should try to get an up close view as to why this sealant was applied. Most of the time the seller adds this to the roofing material to prolong the life of the roof.
