12 Dec Top 5 Roof Coating Basics
These are five important things commercial building owners should know about roof coatings. Knowledge is power, so take the time to learn about roof coating basics in order to make informed decisions about your roof.
1. Roof Coatings Protect Your Roof’s Surface
Roof coatings are seamless, fluid roofing membranes. They add a waterproof layer to your roof’s surface, increasing its lifespan. A midlife roof coating can do the same. This is because the roof coating you have been using for a long time will be replaced by a new layer.
2. Roof Coatings Are Breath-Taking
Roof coatings that are high quality are breathable. This will allow moisture to escape from the roof.
3. You Can Add Some Fire Resistance To Your Roof
There are roof coatings that can be used as fire retardants and are UL-listed. A high-quality roof sealant can provide extra protection for your commercial building. In some cases, a UL-listed roof coating may be eligible for insurance discounts.
4. “Cool Roofs,” Lower Rooftop Temperatures
The roof’s temperature can be lowered by applying a Cool Roof coating. This durable, white coating is reflective and prevents sunlight from absorption, saving you money on energy bills, HVAC maintenance, etc.
5. Protects Against The Growth Of Mold, Mildew, And Other Harmful Organisms
Roof coatings have a very low permeability threshold. They don’t retain water or moisture. Damp roofs can allow mold, mildew and algae to grow. A roof coating on a commercial building in Florida is a great way to prevent the growth of mold, mildew and other harmful microorganisms.
