Coatings

Roof coatings can be divided into two categories:  factory-applied and field-applied.  Factory-applied coatings are used when the entire roof is replaced. These factory-applied coatings are applied at the factory prior to distribution.  The examples of this type of coating would be metal roof with a protective coating and a tile roof with a protective coating. When a total roof replacement is not an option and budget concerns are a priority. Our liquid field-applied systems are a sustainable and cost effective resource. We provide various types of liquid applied roof coatings, which we can tailor fit to meet your building’s needs.  Field-applied coatings are applied directly onto the roof surface, either on a new roof assembly or over an existing roof surface.

Coatings offer many benefits by improving your buildings energy efficiency, creates a seamless membrane over your entire roof, UV resistant and some coatings are chemical resistant as well.  Roof coatings can save you both the cost and disruption of a replacement roof.  Coatings can be used to restore asphalt, metal and single-ply roof systems.  The reflective pigments of a coating will reflect 85% of the sun’s radiant heat.  This will dramatically lower the temperature of the underlying roof system and prevents further degradation.  In addition, as radiant heat is reflected and the interior temperatures are reduced, you will realize substantially lower A/C energy bills.

Since roof coatings are liquid-applied and 100% adhered you will have no seams to come apart, no fasteners to come loose, and no adhesives to disbond.  With the proper primers on metal roofs you can stop ongoing rust as well.  The coating becomes, in effect, the sacrificial roof surface.  Through periodic recoating, a properly applied coating system can be extended to last the life of the building.
