UV protectant?

Does anybody have an opinion on "snow seal" or any other type of UV protectant for a torched down flat roof. A client was asking me about it and I was not completely sure. Are there any long term problems applying new tar over the top after?

If you've got an uncoated mod bit roof, the white & silver coatings are a great idea. They protect the membrane from UV light and they lower the temperature of the membrane and the attic space below it. Of course, it's a better idea to use a granule-surfaced product in the first place.

If you've got a torch down roof, you shouldn't be applying to to the top of it later.
