Why Coating the Roof Is Advisable for
The movement towards environmental friendliness has prompted the roofing service industry
to come up with ingenious services for residential and commercial establishments. Roof
inspectors visit your site for inspection and check out the entire space. Post inspection they
suggest what style of roofing is suitable for the building in line with your budget. Commercial
roof coating is one of the popular solutions that now features in many commercial roofing
installations. This is because coating the roof with a special substance protects the it from
common issues such as wear and tear, environmental hazards, and extend its life to allow you
to get the most out of your investment. If you are unsure whether you must coat the roof of
your commercial building, here’s are specific reasons that will prompt you to get it done,
Prevent Roof Degradation
Roof coating is done to protect the roofing material (asphalt, foam, or metal) from wear due to
harsh weather conditions. Asphalt shingles, for instance, are coated with granules to protect
them from UV light and provide fire resistance. On the other hand, a tough rubberized coating
on a foam roof makes it extra resilient to storm damage.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Commercial roofers have found an eco-friendly and energy efficient option in roof coating. In
Dallas, TX, owners of a majority of commercial establishments are choosing to coat their
roofing as it helps in reflect harmful UV radiations stopping them from seeping in and making
the place hot. Energy bills of commercial establishments that opt for roof coating are on the
lower side. Additionally, heat reflection ensures the roofing material last longer.
Minimize Urban Heat Islands
The overuse of asphalt, concrete, metal, and masonry leads to the problem of urban heat
islands. Roofing materials absorb and retain heat, releasing it slowing during night. This leads to
a temperature difference of around 10 – 15 degrees between urban areas and surrounding
countryside. A protective coating on the roof cuts down the impact of urban heat as it reflects
maximum heat back into the atmosphere.
Make Maintenance Less Cumbersome
Just like your car, roofing also requires regular periodic maintenance. If the roof is coated, roof
maintenance involves recoating the roofing material. Though it is not needed ever so often,
timely reapplication of the coating can prolong its life, keep the establishment energy efficient,
and protect it from damage.
Improves Aesthetic Appeal
Roofing, similar to sidings, augments the aesthetic appeal of the building. Commercial buildings
already have a unique design and colorful roof coating only adds a touch of uniqueness to the
appearance. This is because coatings are available in a variety of color options and coating the
roofing material with a new layer gives it a smooth and shiny appearance.
Most roofs comprise three or more layers – waterproof membrane, insulation, the roof
material, and adhesive – adding a coating to it will only prolong the life of the roof. Whether
the roof of the commercial structure should get coating or recoating done is ascertained after
roof inspection by commercial roofers. Roofing inspection services in Dallas, TX are popular as
most commercial spaces are switching to eco-friendly options such as roof coating.
