Often both overused and overlooked, roof coating options have a specific application and value in commercial roofing systems. Coatings can be used to increase the energy efficiency of an existing roof through increasing thermal reflectivity, providing extra protection from the elements, and even providing a temporary option to extend the life a roof system in limited applications.
There is a wide variety of roof coatings designed for specific applications and used in conjunction with specific roof systems. The Alpine Team can identify coating options designed to fit your application and specific needs and weigh the costs and benefits against all your roofing options. Coatings can be reinforced with a fiberglass or polyester matting and certain applications can receive up to a 20-year warranty.
What is it?
Roof coatings come in a variety colors and usually contain materials, such as acrylic or silicone, and a white pigment to make them opaque and reflective. Roof coatings are thicker than paint but are applied with a roller or sprayed on. Coatings can reflect up to 90% of the heat from the sun, creating a cooling effect on the building, aiding in LEED certification, and protecting the substrate from UV degradation.
