The Benefits of Commercial Roof Coatings

by | Aug 7, 2020 | Property Maintenance

The application of coatings is a great way to improve the durability, resistance and energy-efficiency of commercial roofs. Here are the most important benefits of using the simple and efficient solution:

  • Lower roof temperatures and enhanced energy-efficiency for the entire building – reflective coatings reduce the amount of heat absorbed by the roof, thus reducing the risk of any damage caused by overheating as well as the amount of heat transferred from the roof towards the building interior. Lower interior temperatures also mean that less energy is needed for cooling the building in summer, which translates into lower energy needs;
  • Weather protection – protective roof coatings form a barrier between the roof surface and the elements, protecting the roof from the effects of water and the sun, thus prolonging roof life;
  • Affordable protection – roof coating products are affordable, versatile and very efficient, being a great way to prolong roof life and to postpone expensive roof replacement.

Roof coating products are usually of a consistency similar to that of paint and are applied in a similar way, too, either spreading it with a brush or a roller or by spraying it from cans. They usually need to be reapplied at certain intervals – you can find the information here, or in the instructions attached to the coating product of choice.
