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, provide extra protection from the elements, and even provide 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 to be used in conjunction with specific roof systems. The Alpine Team can identify coating options designed to fit your application and specific needs and weight the costs and benefits against all your roofing options. Coatings can be 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. Roof coatings 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 — and can reflect up to 90% of the heat from the sun. Coatings can create a cooling effect on the building and aid in LEED certification of a building and can protect the substraight from UV degradation.
