Spray Roof Coating
Did you know that non-residential roofs account for 60% of the total roofs in the United States? And did you know that the sun can be one of the most damaging elements to your roof? If you own a business or any type of building with a commercial space roof and are interested in extending the life of your roof, protecting the surface of your roof from harmful UV rays, and saving money on energy consumption, you may want to consider a roof coating spray!
The spray we use has the elastic properties of a synthetic rubber. This elasticity allows the coating that we spray to expand and contract depending on the temperature! This roof coating is specifically designed for commercial space roofs because they don’t have the slope that residential roofs have to allow water to flow off of the roof. This coating helps protect your business’ roof from the elements, and can extend the life of your roof exponentially!
What types of roofs can the spray roof coating be applied to?
Asphalt - both BUR and Mod Bit
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF)
Single-Ply Membranes such as TPO, EPDM, Hypalon, and PVC
Metal (as long as your slope is less than or equal to 14 degrees)
This spray roof coating is a one-time application that can last up to 20 years! It is a truly cost effective way to preserve the lifespan of your roof and protecting it from wear and tear that can lead to bigger problems, and eventually roof replacement. Another way to save costs? A white coating for your roof will reflect the sunlight off of your building, keeping the inside of your business cool! This will slow down the aging process of your roof tremendously. In some reports, it has been reported that a white spray roof coating can cool the inside of a commercial space building up to 20 degrees.
Typically this spray roof coating will take about 24 hours to dry. On a hot, dry day it will dry much fast, while on a humid or rainy day you run the risk of wash off. We recommend working with the weather when it comes to applying this spray coating! Making sure the surface is as dry as possible before the application is beneficial. Also, choosing a time of year that will allow the application to dry completely without the risk of being washed away by precipitation. When moisture is involved you run the risk of blistering. Blistering occurs when moisture gets trapped between the surface of the roof and the spray coat membrane. We can avoid these issues completely by working during on a sun filled, dry weather week!
