The elastomeric commerical roofing coating solutions.
Using a Elastomeric Commerical Roofing Coating
Could your commercial building roofing system benefit from an elastomeric commercial roof coating? Elastomeric commercial roof coatings have been around for quite awhile, but most facility owners and managers are not even aware of all the advantages they provide. Generally speaking, the purpose of commercial roof coatings is to improve the performance of your roof and increase its lifespan. Roof coatings are designed to be spray or roll-applied directly to your existing roof surface. The professionals at Royal Crown Roofing recommend this type of protection for your roof and can give you more information about it.
There are many advantages and benefits of a roof coating system. One of the major ones is the cost savings. Roof replacement can be expensive, but roof restoration can provide all the benefits of a new roof without the expense. A roof coating is applied directly over existing surfaces, so it requires less labor and material than traditional roof tear offs and replacement. In addition to being very cost effective, a commercial roof coating definitely extends the life of your roof. The average commercial roof lasts around 20 years but with the addition of a coating system that serviceable lifespan can be extended often for years.
Choosing a roof coating for your commercial building or facility can also greatly improve the energy efficiency of your building. Unlike standard dark colored roofing materials, a white roof coating can reflect UV rays away from the building which takes the pressure off the building’s HVAC system during the summer and cuts cooling costs way down. This reflective coating also cools the roof’s surface temperature and reduced ambient temperatures overall.
Roof coatings are also environmentally friendly. Other types of commercial roofing materials add literal tons of waste to landfills every year. Since a roof coating is applied over existing roofing materials, there is no waste and no harmful impact to the environment. The roof coatings themselves have been developed to be safe for the environment too, making it a great option.
There are several different factors to consider when choosing the best roof coating for your building. Factors like the type of roof, the age of the roof, weather conditions in the area, aesthetics of the roof and environmental concerns all come into play. Luckily there are many different options when it comes to a commercial roof coating and a professional like Royal Crown Roofing can help you make an informed decision on which type of coating is right for your roof.
Common types of roof coatings include acrylic, which is known for durability and low cost. Asphalt emulsion is another widely used coating made of asphalt particles dispersed in water with clay used as a bonding element. This type of coating is strong, durable and cost effective. Butyl rubber coatings are known for being highly reflective, fast drying and versatile which makes it a great option for many roof types. Silicone roof coatings are great when it comes to UV protection and resistance to standing water. This option also erodes slower than other coatings and doesn’t get brittle or hard. One of the best options in terms of strength, adhesion and durability is a polyurethane roof coating. This coating is very impact resistant and also strong enough to handle extreme weather well. There are many great options for roof coatings and a professional like Royal Crown Roofing can educate you about each one.
