Roof Coatings Offer Long-Term Solutions

Roof Coatings Offer Long-Term Solutions

Whether you have a residential or commercial property, your building and the contents inside must be protected by a strong and resilient roof. Roofs can be made of a variety of materials including: metals, tiles, plastic, glass, wood, slate, ceramics, fibers, and more.

Apart from being aware of what your roof is made of, it's equally important to be aware of roof coatings and what they can do to protect your roofing system. Much like how stains and varnishes are used to seal wood decks from the elements, roof coatings add strength and durability to a roof.

Building managers have bottom-line considerations, and roofing coatings have become a proven option for managers seeking to preserve and economically restore aging roofs.

When roof coatings are properly applied and maintained, they can be the ticket to sustaining an existing roof while reducing the impact of roofs on the environment. Consider the benefits:

  • When a roof coating is applied at the appropriate time of a roof's lifecycle, it can prevent the need for a tear off and delay the need of a costly replacement.
  • Many roof coatings are designed to decrease roof temperatures, reducing the load on the HVAC system.
  • Instead of replacing an aging roof merely for aesthetic purposes, mangers can improve the appearance of a roof by applying a roof coating.
  • Applying roof coating products to localized areas prone to ponding water can prolong the life of the entire roofing system.

One of the most attractive features of a roof coating is the cost savings involved. In many cases a roof coating can completely transform an old decaying roof into a roof that looks new, for about half the cost of a roof replacement. Investing in a roof coating is like taking your 1969 Oldsmobile 442 out of the barn and slapping a brand new paint job on it, making it look like you just drove it off the showroom floor.

Looking for cost-effective ways to maintain your roof? The best way to accomplish this is to apply a roof coating. This creates a second membrane on the roof's surface that acts as a ultra-violet and waterproof layer.
