Roof coating is an additional layer of protection applied to an already built roof that can extend its life by many years. Roof coatings are often intended to expand and contract with the roof materials in response to weather conditions. The coating will stay undamaged and glued to the roof, preventing the membrane from rupturing.

Why is roof coating important

 When we look at a roof, there are two primary things we notice: the geometric concerns, such as shape and size, and the substance, which we refer to as the coating. Asphalt shingles, ceramic tile, slate shingles, wood and cedar shingles or shake, and metal roofs are the most prevalent types of home roofing.

A variety of factors, such as sunlight and adverse weather, have an impact on roofs. Because they are more durable, some roofing materials, such as asphalt, will be easier to treat. Metal roofs, in particular, are known for their long lifespan.

Roof coatings, on the other hand, are not the same as the underlying material utilized to construct a roof. Coatings are what keep your roof in good shape in the face of the elements. Roof coatings have numerous advantages. These are some of them:

  • Improved protection: Roof coatings can help protect your roof from harsh weather, particularly hail. Hailstones can wreak havoc on your roof, but roof coatings provide an extra layer of protection.
  • Savings on a new roof: A new roof can cost thousands of dollars. Roof coatings are often only 30% to 40% of the cost of a full tear-off.
  • Savings on energy: These coatings can help you save money on electricity by lowering the amount of energy you need to chill your home. Most roof coatings have reflecting qualities, which means they will reflect rather than absorb the ultraviolet (UV) rays that hit your roof and cause it to heat up.
