Elastomeric coatings can help repair and extend the life of your current roof rather than you having to incur the cost of replacement so soon in your future. They are a special class of roof coatings that can be applied quickly with great results. Advantages of elastomeric coatings include:
- Sealing and Preventing Leaks
Use of an elastomeric coating can seal small leaks and be a more economical solution than more major roof repairs.
The heating and cooling of a roof surface can cause cracks and other deterioration. Elastomeric coatings can expand and contract with the roof, providing exceptional coverage and protection no matter what season of the year it is.
- Increased Protection From the Elements
Coating your roof helps seal it from the wear and tear that harsh weather can inflict upon it over the years. This can mean that you don’t have to replace your roof as soon as you normally would.
Coatings can be used to restore roofs that have fallen into disrepair over the years. They are often a quicker and more cost effective option than other sorts or repairs or replacement.
- Easy Application
Elastomeric coatings can be applied with little more than a paint roller, making them exceptionally easy to use. While smaller projects such as a small outbuilding can be done by a homeowner willing to invest the time, larger projects are best left to those with experience applying these coatings to larger areas.
There are many types of elastomeric coatings on the market today. They include:
This coating is by far the most popular of the elastomeric coatings available on the market today. It is easy to use, easy to clean up, and is known for being environmentally friendly. It is also the best to use on roofs that are sloped, making it a very good choice for the typical homeowner that desires superior protection for their roof. They are a particularly good choice for further sealing and waterproofing a metal roof. Light colored acrylic coatings are increasingly being used to make buildings more energy efficient by better reflecting UV rays.
Usually used for single-ply and built-up flat roof systems containing bitumen. It allows for decreased pooling of water on the roof surface and works well with roofing systems that call for a vapor barrier. It is also used to restore and seal older metal roofs or provide extra toughness and waterproofing to newer metal roofs.
While typically used for rubber roofs, polyurethane elastomeric coatings are also often used in single-ply and built up flat roof systems typically seen on commercial buildings. Sometimes a coat of silicone elastomeric coating is used over a coat of polyurethane for maximum sealing and water resistance capabilities.
Often used to recoat roofs that already contain a silicone coat, but also used over polyurethane foam roofing systems. Silicone is extremely water resistant and provides fantastic protection to your roof.
Mobile Home Applications
Elastomeric coatings are of great benefit in the sealing and repair of camper or house trailers. They can fix many roof problems quickly and easily, thus prolonging the life of the entire structure by preventing or easily repairing leaks that can lead to severe water damage, a leading cause in major mobile home damage.
