A roof coating is a fully-adhered, monolithic and fluid-applied roofing membrane that can act as the top layer of a composite roof membrane. This can reduce the effects of moisture, sunlight, rain, hail and impact. Roof coatings are generally found in commercial low-slope roofs. DryTech Roofing LLC, one of the top roofing and siding contractors in our area, explains what you need to know:
What Is a Roof Coating?
The primary purpose of a commercial roof coating is to increase the life span of your commercial roof and to improve its performance. The coating protects your roof from leaks because it has no seams and because it is self-adhering. There are no flashings or fasteners involved that can serve as a potential source for roof leaks. In addition, many commercial roof coatings are reflective, allowing them to reflect heat and UV rays.
Roof Coating Benefits
Commercial roof coatings are designed to be roll-applied or sprayed directly onto an existing roof surface. The roof coating will be applied across the entire roof and around pipes, hatches and other roof penetrations. It will act as an extra layer of protection that can greatly reduce the chances of roof leaks.
Highly reflective roof coatings can also improve your building’s energy efficiency by keeping your roof cool. Roof coatings are also easy to install and applying them to your roof won’t require your building to close down. As one of the premier roofing and siding contractors in our area, DryTech Roofing LLC recommends doing your research before choosing a roof coating since there are many kinds available.
How a Roof Coating Is Installed
The first thing the contractor will do is inspect your roof and determine if it is a good candidate for a roof coating. Your roof should not have any standing water 48 hours after rainfall. Ponding water is typically not covered in a roof coating warranty. The contractor will then make any necessary repairs to your roof. They will then clean the roof and then install the coating either by roll-applying it or spraying it.
