Elastomeric roof coatings is a liquid coating that can be applied to existing low-slope roofs, including metal, concrete, and membranous roofing. It’s applied like regular paint, but its capabilities are far beyond what paint can do.
As a roofing contractor who specializes in commercial roofing, let Dynamic Roofing Concepts Inc. share with you the features and benefits of elastomeric roof coatings.
One of the culprits of what is known as the urban heat island phenomenon is the use of roofing materials that absorb heat from direct sunlight. A simple yet effective solution is to install white roofing material, which bounces sunlight and solar heat back up to the air. The less heat absorbed through the roof, the less indoor cooling requirements there are. Elastomeric roof coatings feature all these benefits, which can help your property obtain ENERGY STAR® or LEED Green Building Rating System® certification. The best part is, you don’t have to have a completely new roofing installed.
Elastomeric roof coatings add a seamless layer over your entire roof that protects it from degradation caused by years of exposure to UV rays, pollutants, and saline air. A single application by a professional roofer can extend your roof’s lifespan more than 20 years.
The problem with typical commercial roofing materials is its seams could get pried off by hurricane-force winds, which could introduce rainwater and debris into the substrate and even trickle into the ceiling. With elastomeric roof coatings, you can be confident that your property is protected from wind and rainwater.
In case it does get damaged or torn off for any reason, repairs are easily done by simply reapplying the roof coating at the damaged spot: no scraping, teardowns, no waste materials, and no complicated machinery. Repairs can be done by a small team, in only a fraction of the time otherwise spent on conventional roofing.
Elastomeric roof coatings can virtually make your low slope roof last a lifetime. To ensure consistency and flawless results, you need to have it professionally applied.
