It sometimes makes sense to consider roof coating as an option for roof replacement. In such cases, the roof should have no leaks or trapped moisture. Coating is a fluid-applied adhered coating used for maintenance, repair, or as part of an assembly. It is usually applied on top of an existing roof membrane. In this post, commercial general contractors from Allied Construction Services explain when commercial roof coatings make sense.
A Viable Option for Roof Replacement
Roof coatings can extend the life of a roof by reflecting damaging ultraviolet rays. They restore a moderately aged roof to a waterproof, watertight condition. They replace deteriorated coatings applied at initial roof installation. They reduce cooling costs, improve the roof’s appearance, and increase its fire resistance.
Extends the Service Life of Your Current Roof
Coatings are right only for roof systems with sound structures and free of moisture. If your roof is more than 15 years old, a coating may not work as a stop-gap measure. It may result in leaks, peeling, and cracks. It will only extend the life of your roof for a few years until replacement becomes necessary. Let Allied Construction Services do a full inspection of your roof. Our industrial construction services experts will determine if roof coatings will work for your structure.
Multiple Coating Options
Acrylic or asphalt-based coatings are usually installed by brushing, rolling, or spraying. Other coating options include polyurethane, silicone, and elastomeric. TPO, EPDM, PVC and built-up roofing all need different coatings. Certain coatings perform better on rough surfaces, for example. Coatings range in density and color, providing many options to choose from.
