So what are roof coatings? They are designed to protect and extend the service life of roofs. While roof coatings are used for new construction, they are more commonly used to protect existing roof coverings, such as BUR, modified bitumen, metal, single ply membranes, and spray polyurethane foam. Roof coatings are thicker than paint, and they’re made to help protect roofs from the damaging effects of weather and the environment. This includes UV light, excessive water, and excessive wind. They contain a high level of top-quality resin, which means they are able to provide protection for many years.
There are many types of roof coatings that can benefit any type of roof. The most common roof coatings are acrylic coatings, asphalt coatings, silicone coatings, and polyurethane coatings. Roof coatings are applied to low slope roofs on residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. This helps to extend the life of a roof by preventing damage, which in turn causes the building’s owner to save money. Some roof coatings even help waterproof the roof when applied correctly. Roof coatings are also the most effective (and least costly) option to make buildings more energy efficient.
There are many other benefits to applying a protective roof coating to your roof. They reflect visible light, infrared, and UV radiation, which leads to lower roof temperatures. In turn, this helps to reduce cooling costs. Roof coatings also reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect, which is a regional elevation in air temperature. This is usually gauged by the difference between urban and rural air temperatures. Finally, roof coatings help prevent tear-off and waste. Instead of completely tearing off an existing roof to repair it, roof coatings can be a solution to extend the life of a roof.
