What Is a Roof Coating?
When you're in the market to restore an aging metal roof, you may hear the term roof coating and wonder what it means and how it could benefit your company.
Is it more viable than roof refurbishment and replacement? You bet it is. It will also cost a fraction of the price of traditional replacements and, when properly applied, can extend the life of your current roofing infrastructure by up to 20 years.
Essentially, an elastomeric membrane is a liquid coating applied to roofing that forms a barrier that seals out the possibility of water penetration. In addition to being an excellent defense against leaks, this membrane offers additional benefits that can help you tackle rising energy costs. Using a white or colored membrane, we give you the ability to improve heat reflection or absorption.
When the sun's rays hit the top of your building, your roof's coating system can be designed to use white or light colors to direct sunlight away from your structure, keeping it cooler during the hot summer months. It can also be engineered in a darker shade to help absorb the sun's heat, depending on your wishes.

How We Apply Industrial Grade Metal Roof Coating
The process our experts follow to apply industrial-grade metal roof coating starts with an inspection of your roof. Some types of damage will require repair before seals can be applied. Once repair work is complete, we give the roof a detailed cleaning.
Upon drying, your building is ready to begin coating application. We start this process by using a material type ideal for the type of roofing material present and how much slope is involved. Depending on your selected products, we will either use rollers or spraying tools to apply a uniform seal.
Lastly, we perform an inspection and then allow your roof coating to dry for approximately 48 hours. While curing time takes days, our specialists recommend staying off your roof for up to one month to ensure a hassle-free curing process.
Can Commercial Roof Coating Be Used for a Rusted Roof?
When a well-rusted roof threatens to harm operations, your commercial budget, or both— a commercial roof coating is an actionable solution you can implement now. It will restore function and value to your structure, and it will also prevent you from having to make costly structural repairs now, giving you up to 20 years more time for your company to plan for that type of renovation.
Since not all commercial roofing contractors offer industrial metal roof sealants, some may try to persuade you that a complete tear-off and rebuild is necessary. Our experts recommend contacting a roof coating specialist to see if your building is a good candidate before making costly refurbishments that could negatively impact your bottom line.
