    Hi,

    Can someone confirm what roof type this is?
    I'm assuming Asphalt but a neighbour has commented the lines could be overlaps of felt.

    I have quite a few hairline cracks so looking to treat with a sealer but i also want to UV protect it.
    Does solar sealant also fill in hairline cracks... if not, can you paint over products such as Black Jack sealer with Solar reflective paint.

    Any recommendation?

    Many thanks,

    It looks like the original solar reflective coating has worn away.
    After you have treated any cracks you can repaint the roof with bitumen based solar reflective paint.
