When roof replacements or re-covers are out of the question, a roof coating can be a viable option. Roof coatings eliminate replacement costs while still providing warranties of up to 10 years.
Coatings are one of the most affordable and efficient ways to restore or maintain your current roof system. When a roof replacement or recovery system is out of budget, a roof coating can be a viable option depending on your roof's current condition. One of the most popular roof coatings used today is the Elastomeric Coating or sometimes simple referred to as "white coating".
This coating is applied as a liquid and dries to become a seamless watertight membrane-like layer. When applied correctly, a roof coating system can extend your existing roof system's serviceable life by up to 10 years.
Roof coatings are applied directly on top of your existing roof, speeding up installation time and reducing costs, as the systems are not as labor intensive as the installation of a new roof. A roof restoration system does not require the existing roof to be torn off, eliminating the contribution of landfill waste and costing you less.
Adding a roof coating is one of the simplest ways to make a building more energy efficient. Reflective roof coatings reflect the sun's rays rather than absorbing them, keeping your building temperature cooler. Not only does this save a business money, which is important, but it can also help a company leave a smaller carbon footprint.
Almost all roof coating systems are renewable and can be re-coated multiple times to not only preserve but also lengthen the service life of your roof, renew it's reflectivity, and ensure excellent waterproofing capabilities.
According to most building codes, buildings can have a maximum of two roof layers. A massive benefit of coatings is that they aren't recognized as a roofing system but rather a roof maintenance procedure. A perfect option if you're looking to avoid costly replacement costs while still prolonging the life of your roof.
