Aside from acting as an additional layer of protection for a roofing system, roof coatings can help reduce a building’s environmental impact. Dynamic Roofing Concepts, Inc., your trusted roofing contractor, explains how in this blog post.

Improved Energy Efficiency

As the name suggests, reflective coatings reflect heat and ultraviolet rays and help lower the roof temperature.  This, in turn, reduces the amount of electricity your HVAC system needs to use, and, by extension, your home’s overall carbon footprint.

Improved Lifespans and Reduced Landfill Waste

By blocking UV rays that can prematurely age your roof, roof coatings extend its lifespan.  A longer roof lifespan means less construction waste ends up in landfills, which is not insignificant given that roofing projects generate 40 percent of construction waste in landfills.

Here’s a tip: if you want to further minimize the construction waste from a roof replacement project, choose a recyclable roofing material, like metal roofing panels. Thanks to their reflective surface, metal roofing systems are also considered energy-efficient.

Types of Roof Coatings

Keep in mind not all roofing coatings can provide the same level of protection, which is why you need to choose one that can meet your home’s needs.

Here’s an overview of the different types of roofing materials:

  • Acrylic coatings – Acrylic-based materials are UV-resistant and versatile. They can be applied to a wide variety of roofing membranes, including single-ply membranes and metal systems.
  • Silicone coatings – Elastic silicone coatings adhere easily to the surface of the roof. Thanks to their resistance to weather-related damage and ponding water, they’re a good choice if you have a commercial roof.
  • Polyurethane coatings – Polyurethane coatings are highly resistant to impact damage and foot traffic.
