Elastomeric roof coating is a liquid coating that’s applied to low-slope roofs. They include metal, concrete and membranous roofing. It’s applied like regular paint, but it does a lot more than anything mere paint can do.
Here, Safe Harbor Exteriors shares the features and benefits of this fine product.
Longer Roof Life Span
Elastomeric roof coatings add a seamless layer over for your entire roofing system. Your roof, in turn, becomes well protected from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, pollutants and saline air as a result. A single application by our pros can extend your roof’s lifespan by more than 20 years.
One of the causes of urban heat island is that your roofing systems can absorb heat from direct sunlight. An effective solution is white roofing material, which reflects sunlight and solar heat. The less heat absorbed through the roof (or your siding), the less need of indoor cooling. Elastomeric roof coatings feature all these benefits. They can get your property rated by ENERGY STAR® or LEED Green Building Rating System®. The best part is that you don’t need a roof replacement.
Protection Against the Elements
Kansas is vulnerable to strong winds, hurricane and severe thunderstorms. With some roofing systems, wood shake roof included, the seams could get pried off by strong winds. This could introduce rainwater into the substrate that can trickle into the ceiling. With elastomeric roof coatings, your property is well protected from wind and rainwater. The coating remains attached to the roof in wet or very windy conditions.
Easy Repair and Maintenance
Repairs are easy to do by only reapplying the roof coating at the damaged spots. There’s no need for scraping, teardowns, waste materials nor complicated machinery. A small team can do it in only a fraction of the time otherwise spent on conventional roofing.
Elastomeric roof coatings can make your roof last almost a lifetime. To ensure consistency and flawless results, have it applied by our trained experts.
