We often hear about adding roof coatings to your business and how much they can benefit you, but do you actually know what a roof coating is or what it does? A roof coating is something that is usually put on flat roofs or metal roofing to help keep it protected and lasting as long as possible. Inside of its makeup, it has elastic properties that are stretchy and can change shape without causing damage. A roof coating is in liquid form and can be put into a roof using a roller or a spraying machine. It will then adhere to the roof and actually become the first layer of the roof itself. This helps to protect from many things. On metal roofing, it will protect from things like zinc and rust. It actually adds years of life onto your roof that you wouldn’t normally get without it. On other flat roofing, water can begin to add up over time and cause damage to the roofing material, but if you put a roof coating on it, it will be able to protect from water damage, mold, and bubbling up of the roof. There are several different kinds of roof coatings that you can choose from as well and all will do something slightly different, but they will also be able to make sure that your roof is protected.
Acrylic Coating – Acrylic is water based and is great because it is cost effective and great for many different types of weather.
Silicone – This is a great option because it creates a moisture barrier that just gets stronger.
Polyurethane – This is a top choice because it is one of the strongest out there and can handle impact and weather very well.
These are just a few different choices that you can pick from, but if you need a professional option, call Advanced Roofing and Insulation at (682) 730-8430.
