How Roof Coatings Benefit Your Commercial Roof?

 

Roof coatings are polymer-based liquid compounds that are either rolled or sprayed directly onto your existing roof. The idea is to extend the life of your existing roof without replacing it. It adds a layer of protection against light, water, and other elements. Roof coatings are a great way to prevent cracks, corrosion, and other damage while delaying a roof replacement until you’re ready. At Home Genius Exteriors, we provide leading commercial roof coating services in the Old Bridge Township area.

 

Why Choose Roof Coatings Over A Replacement

It costs a great deal to entirely replace a commercial roof, and if you have a large building, the cost only increases. If you know your roof is weakening or reaching the end of its life, but you simply don’t have the finances right now, it may be time to consider a roof coating solution. This is one of the most affordable and effective ways to prolong your commercial roof’s life.

What you may not realize is the roof coating can help you save money on your HVAC bills. In addition to giving your roof a longer life, these coatings can help insulate your building and maintain consistent temperatures, so your heating and cooling systems don’t have to work so hard.

 

The Advantages of Roof Coatings

Roofing contractor Home Genius Exteriors strongly recommends considering a roof coating for commercial properties. It’s a simple way to unlock the full potential of your commercial roof, regardless of its existing material. These are just a few of its advantages:

  • Significantly extends the life of the roof, by up to 10-20 years.
  • Enables business owners to avoid the immediate costly expense of a full roof replacement.
  • Provides an additional barrier against bad weather.
  • Saves a large percentage of HVAC energy expenses.
  • Qualifies your business for tax rebates.
  • Minimizes maintenance costs over time.

 

Home Genius’ Roof Coating Process

We’ll start the process with our initial free roof inspection and analysis. Our process then consists of three separate steps before the job is completed:

  • A thorough clean of the roof to ensure a smooth coating finish.
  • The coating is applied, with the type determined by your current roofing material.
  • Review of the finished product and discussion of maintenance options.
  • You provide us with your feedback so we are 100% sure that you’re satisfied with the job.

 

Types of Coatings That Can Be Applied

There are a variety of commercial roof coating solutions, but what you choose will depend on your current roof material. Some roof types require multiple layers of coating while others can be applied directly to the surface of your roof. It is important to discuss these beforehand with your roofing contractor.

Asphalt

Asphalt-based roof coatings use a solvent to make them thinner and easier to apply to a roof without heavy equipment. It can be brushed or sprayed on, and it works best on metal roofs, built-up roofs, and membrane roofs.

 

Acrylic

Acrylic or elastomeric coatings are highly reflective and help prevent rust. It’s strong but flexible, making these acrylic coatings ideal for metal roofing because they will expand and contract with the metal. These coatings are easy to apply via a spray nozzle, making the process quicker and less labor-intensive. It’s also cost-effective, suitable for most climates, and provides the best value.

 

Rubberized Aluminum

A rubber aluminum coating reflects heat and is incredibly resilient to impact. It doesn’t damage easily and can be used on built-up roofs, single ply roofs, spray polyurethane foam, and modified bitumen roofs.

 

Polyureas

Polyureas take many forms. These roof coatings provide abrasion resistance, corrosion protection, structural enhancement, chemical resistance, and waterproofing features. Polyureas are common on metal roofs, built-up roofs, single ply roofs, foam, and modified bitumen roofing.

 

Urethanes

A urethane roof coating is ideal for high traffic areas because it’s flexible, seamless, and durable. It can expand and contract with your roof structure. Moreover, urethanes resist water pooling, and they are more impact-resistant than many other types of coatings.

 

Polyurethanes

Where urethanes are flexible, polyurethanes are stiff and rigid. Polyurethane roof coatings are impact-resistant and can handle a good amount of traffic. They are available in two variations – aromatic or aliphatic polyurethane, each with their respective merits.

 

Silicone

Silicone roof coatings protect against leaking and are ultra-sustainable. They’re easy to apply, and because they’re not water-based, they are highly water-resistant by nature. A silicone roof coating can withstand ponding water and easily last 10-15 years. However, silicone is not the best choice for heavy traffic because it can be very slippery when wet.

 

Granules

Granules can be added to many roof coating systems to increase the coating’s resistance to impact and abrasion. It can also improve its safety by creating a non-slip surface. It’s ideal for commercial buildings that have a high amount of roof activity and can be used on asphalt shingles, modified bitumen roofs, and single-ply roofs.
