ENERGY STAR-qualified roof coatings lower roof’s surface temperature and decrease your home’s interior temperature by an average of seven to 10 degrees. This happens in two distinct ways:
Roof coatings create a resilient barrier between the elements and the uppermost layers of your roofing material. The right roof coating increases your roofs waterproof qualities guarding your roof from harmful sun rays, prevents UV damage, and reflects heat away from the roof’s surface. This increased the longevity of your roofing while lowering maintenance expenses.
Roof coatings are formulated to adhere to a wide range of roof solutions, including metal roofs, asphalt roofs, composite roofs, galvanized metal, wood, and others.
Small leaks and other minor damage can be repaired before a roof coating is applied. In some cases, you may be able to avoid full-scale replacement of your roof for several years if you utilize the right coating for the job. “Roof restoration using a coating system can save the owner 50-70% when compared to replacing the entire roof,” said David Bade, owner of St. Louis-based Bade Roofing Company “With a roof restoration, owners avoid the cost of tearing off the existing roof, purchasing new materials and paying labor fees to replace the existing roof. Not to mention the environmental impact that roofing materials have when disposed in a landfill.”
Reflective roof coatings help your roof maintain its color over time improving the overall look of your home as it ages. Since the roof coatings are reflective, the color of the roof is maintained for a longer duration, which makes your house look more appealing.
One final peripheral benefit of roof coatings is that they help reduce waste by extending the life of your roof thus minimizing the amount of debris produced during maintenance and repair. Today, most coatings are specially formulated for environmental safety as well, so you don’t have to worry about production techniques or dangerous chemicals.
