Advantages of Using Roof Coating Systems

The number one worry for any roof is leaks and moisture. No matter the kind of roof you have, if it starts leaking, you must take immediate action to rectify the problem. Roof coatings are an ideal waterproofing solution for your existing roof substrate (asphalt, single-ply, concrete metal, or SPF) as they don’t require a traditional tear-off or closures to your business.

When you have a moist and humid environment inside your home, it can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. Not only is this unsightly, but it can also be dangerous for your family’s health. This post will explain why roof coating systems are an excellent option for waterproofing your roof and extending its lifespan.

Common Causes of Water Problems

Water on your roof is not only unsightly, but it can also lead to severe problems if not addressed quickly. Leaks in your roof can cause significant damage to your home or business, and standing water can attract pests like mosquitoes.

Water is one of the most damaging elements to a roof, and it’s also one of the most common causes of roof problems. Roofs are designed to shed water, but they can only do so if they’re correctly maintained. Over time, roof surfaces can become worn or damaged, allowing water to seep in and causing damage to the roof structure.

In addition, leaves and other debris can clog gutters and downspouts, preventing water from draining correctly. As a result, roofs are often exposed to excessive moisture, which can lead to leaks and eventually cause the roof to collapse.

Silicone Roof Coating Systems Help

Other factors can contribute to water problems on your roof, including the type of roof surface, the roof’s structure, and the building’s location. Residential roofs are particularly susceptible to water damage, as they are often not as well-constructed as commercial roofs.

If you’ve ever had a problem with water leaking into your home through the roof, you know how frustrating it can be. And once water gets into your home, it can be challenging to get rid of. That’s why silicone roof coating systems are an essential tool for preventing water damage. Silicone roof coatings are applied directly to the roof’s surface, creating a seamless barrier that repels water.

They’re often used on commercial and industrial roofs, but they can be applied to any roof. And silicone coatings are one of the most effective ways along with water sealers to prevent water leaks. So silicone roof coatings are worth considering if you’re looking for a way to protect your home from water damage.

Spray Polyurethane Foam for Roofs

Spray polyurethane foam is a spray-applied plastic that solidifies into a durable, weather-resistant, and insulating foam coating. It can be applied to metal roof systems, commercial roofs, and cool roofs to provide long-term protection against leaks, drafts, and energy loss.

Moreover, spray polyurethane foam has a wide range of applications, from roofing and insulation to acoustical control and soundproofing. It is also an effective barrier against water, air, and electromagnetic radiation.

In addition, spray polyurethane foam can help improve indoor air quality by reducing the amount of dust, pollen, and other allergens in the air.

Protect Your Roof From Damage

Roof leaks and water penetration can have various causes, from an old and worn-out roof membrane to a new one with tears in the seams. With Everlast Coatings’ roof coating systems, you get a seamless, watertight, monolithic membrane across your entire roof surface. This prevents current leaks and future leaks from occurring.

These spray-applied coating systems cover the entire roof surface, providing complete waterproofing to your low-sloped roof – even around pipes, penetrations, drains, and equipment commonly found on the roof surface.

AcryShield Roof Coating Systems

The AcryShield roof coating systems we install are highly durable and flexible. The elastomeric base and topcoats used in these systems can stretch twice their original length while returning to normal without tearing or ripping.

The expansion and contraction of your roof caused by fluctuating weather climates can often cause leaks in roofs that are brittle or have seams that are not sufficiently adhered together.

However, elastomeric membranes sewn into a single sheet provides your roof with the stability it needs to expand and contract as necessary, protecting your building from tears, rips, and leaks.

Other Benefits of a Roof Coating System

A roof coating system is not just about water protection. It’s also about energy efficiency, UV protection, and extending the life of your commercial roof. For example, a silicone roof coating can reflect most of the sun’s UV rays, helping keep your building cooler in the summer and reducing air conditioning costs.

In the winter, a reflective roof coating can help keep heat from escaping through the roof, reducing energy costs. And because a roof coating system creates a seamless barrier over your roof, it helps to prevent leaks and other damage, extending the life of your roof and protecting your investment.

This means you can save money on roof repairs and replacements and avoid the disruptions that come with them. Considering all of the benefits, it’s easy to see why a roof coating system is a wise choice for any commercial property owner with metal roofs and more.
