A simple coating could earn you an extra 10 years to your metal roof. Like anything over time material breaks down from being in the elements. A roof coating offers an effective and affordable solution to protect your roof from bad weather and pesky leaks. Roof coatings add energy-efficient properties to your roof and cost less than a roof replacement. We apply roof coatings to any size structure.
Elastomeric roof coatings are more popular now because they are considered “cool roofs.” A “cool roof” coating is white and reflects the sun’s rays; because your roof isn't absorbing the heat from the sun, your building stays cooler, and your energy costs stay lower. Roof coatings work well year-round because they expand and contract easily with the temperature fluctuations of summer and winter. We use Energy Star® rated products because they reduce the surface temperature on your roof.
More often than not, if you have a low-slope or metal roof with frequent leaks, it can be saved with a flawlessly applied elastomeric roof coating. As with any commercial roofing system, it’s crucial that the roof coating is applied properly by a team who has the expertise and skill to get the job done. The roof needs to be primed before application for maximum benefits.
There are four main kinds of elastomeric roof coatings:
Silicone Coating - This type is great for polyurethane foam roofs especially if the roof is very weathered. We can add an additional coating on top of an existing silicone coating.
Acrylic Coating - This type of elastomeric roof coating is perfect for over sloped roofs. It is eco-friendly and long-lasting.
Polyurethane Coating - Polyurethane coatings are great for EPDM rubber roofs, modified bitumen, and single ply roofs.
Butyl Coating - Butyl works well for flat roofs, low-sloping roofs, single-ply roofs, or built-up roofs. It has a strong resistance to heavy rains.
Overall, commercial roof coatings are seamless, and once installed correctly, can solve roof leaks on just about any type of roofing material.
If your existing roof isn’t performing as well as it should, but it’s not quite time for a full replacement, roof coatings are a great option. A roof coating often referred to as a roofing membrane, has the ability to stretch and return to its original shape because of its elastic properties. Roof coatings work well on almost any roof type and are great at preventing roof leaks. With a seamless elastomeric roof coating, we can save you time and money, while extending the life of your roof. Below are a few of the benefits of commercial roof coatings over roof replacement:
