Commercial Roof Coating Services
Roof coatings could be the answer for you, whether you want to maintain your brand-new commercial roof or get a few more years out of your aged roofing system. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk a little about the roof coating methods available from James Kate Roofing, the most reputable commercial roofing contractor.
Benefits of Commercial Roof Coatings
The roof membrane is shielded from UV rays and other potentially damaging environmental elements by applying a commercial roof coating. Applying the coating to an existing flat roof increases the roof system’s resistance to fire and adds a waterproof layer.
One of the most compelling arguments in favor of investing in a roof coating system is the fact that it is frequently more cost-effective than roof replacement. A coating system applied to your building’s new roof can provide an additional layer of defense against environmental hazards.
A roof coating can be used on various roof surfaces, including:
- Built-up (BURs)
- Modified bitumen
- Sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) systems
Types of Roof Coatings
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
PVC is a rolled coating that offers excellent durability, flexibility, and fire resistance. As Duro-Last® certified contractors, we can ensure our PVC roofing installation meets the highest quality standards.
The coatings can be used to repair most roof leaks. The elastomeric roof coatings can be used throughout the year because they stretch and contract easily to adjust to winter and summer temperatures.
It is usually made using polymeric products such as acrylic alongside white pigments like titanium dioxide. This helps create a reflexive final product.
Uses for Elastomeric Coating: An elastomeric roof coating can be used to fix almost all types of roofs. Examples of common roof types that will work well with elastomeric coating include; wood, polyurethane foam, single-ply roofing, modified bitumen, metal roofs, concrete and built-up roofing. If you aren’t sure your roof type will work well with elastomeric coatings, do not hesitate to contact us. Our experts are always willing to help.
Benefits of Elastomeric Coating: These coatings can work with almost any roof type. Another advantage is they are long-lasting. The coatings are resistant to fungi and mildew among other common materials that damage roofs with time.
Another advantage of the coatings is that they are seamless, providing a neat uniform coating. Elastomeric coatings offer individual benefits to certain roof types. For instance, polyurethane foam roofing benefits greatly from the coatings by getting great ozone and UV light protection.
The heat reflexive properties also offer great benefits such as lowering cooling costs. This advantage is enjoyed regardless of the rooftop. The heat reflexive properties also offer anti-aging properties when coatings reflect harsh sun rays which age roofs with time. Elastomeric coating is also simple to use, VOC-compliant and nontoxic.
Silicone, like acrylics, is an excellent choice for roofing coatings since it reflects the sun’s rays and can therefore withstand high levels of ultraviolet radiation. A silicone roof coating is typically applied in regions where rain falls regularly and roofs are frequently wet and have ponding water.
Uses: The performance of your roof can be improved, and its lifespan can be extended, by applying a commercial roof coating. This coating will also protect your roof from damage. Roof coatings are designed to be sprayed or rolled directly onto the surface of an existing roof. Because of its monolithic structure (which means it does not have seams), its self-adhering properties (which means it does not require fasteners), and its flashing capabilities, this innovative coating will keep water out of your building.
Benefits: Silicone roof coatings have a larger solid content than other types of roof coatings, which is one of the most significant advantages of using these coatings. Once the substance has been cured, this effectively means that we are able to apply the coating in a single thicker layer without sacrificing the substance’s quality or its effectiveness. This results in significant cost savings in terms of manpower and time saved on the roof itself.
Eliminating the need for priming is another obvious advantage of silicone roof coatings. In most cases, all that is required to prepare an existing roof for applying a silicone coating is a thorough power cleaning. In most circumstances, there will be no need for us to make use of a primer. Again, this brings down the overall cost of the installation and the amount of time spent on the roof, which in turn brings down the risk of incurring any accidents or additional costs.
