One area you may not think about all the time is your roof. Is it performing at the highest standard? If not, your building may be subject to water damage or insulation problems. We recommend applying a roof coating to help with these issues. But what kind of roof coating is the best? There are several options to choose from. Fortunately for you, our experts can help find the best coating for you.
This kind of coating is one of the easiest to install, as it can be swept on with a push broom. This coating contains emulsified asphalt and asphalt particles dispersed in water. Clay is the emulsifying component, and it contains a number of organic and inorganic fillers and fibers to provide the coat with extra strength.
Acrylic Roof Coatings
Acrylic coatings are also fairly easy to apply; they can be sprayed or rolled on. They will, however, need to be reapplied every 2 to 3 years. They contain various types of acrylic polymer, and this helps extend the durability of the material. While white is the most commonly used color, this coating is both cost-effective and strong.
Solvent-Based Asphalt Coatings
This coating type is often referred to as a “cutback” coating because it is solid at room temperature and must be “cut back” with other materials to liquify it before application. Solvent-based coatings can be applied with a roller. It is important to note, however, that this kind of coating often contains asbestos, so use caution before choosing this particular material.
Solvent-Based Silicone Coatings
Silicone-based coatings are a quality choice for both durability and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, they are biodegradable. Silicone coatings are available in a variety of colors, and they can be sprayed or rolled on. This kind of coating excels at adhering to most materials without a primer. It can also resist ponding for a long time.
