Roof coatings are a great addition to commercial roofing because they offer protection for its underlying components. They can also reflect sunlight, preventing the roof from heating up during hot weather. Coatings can be used in practically any roof types, but roofing contractors do not recommend these for roofs that are covered in gravel or other ballast. To know more about roof coatings, here are some of the most common reasons for applying coatings in commercial roofs:
If your goal is to protect your roof against heat damage and other elements, it would be best to apply roof coating upon the installation of your new roofing. This enables the roof system to be adequately protected from the get-go — which is an effective way to prevent serious roof damage.
New Roof Color
Changing the color of your roof during roof replacement or roof maintenance is more than just an aesthetic choice. It can also be aimed at improving the energy efficiency of your building. In this case, you might want to opt for coatings with high reflectivity so that your roof won’t get hot. This can help reduce the amount of work that your cooling system has to do, thus helping you save on energy costs.
If your commercial roof has already been up for 10 to 15 years, a roof coating is a good way to help extend its life span by 10 or 15 more years. Of course, this will depend on the current condition of your roofing. Roofs that are still repairable or in relatively good shape are usually good candidates for roof coating. So if your roof is already too old or too damaged, roof coating would not likely be able to offer the same result.
