A roof coating is more than just a great way to protect your investment, it's also an investment in the environment. A roof coating can restore a dilapidated, deteriorated traditional roof to a good as new condition without the need to tear the old roof off. The old roof becomes the base upon which the roof coating adheres, forming a new, stronger, and waterproof roof surface that is more energy efficient and easier on the environment.
Roof Coating and Spray Foam
Roof coatings can also be used in conjunction with spray polyurethane foam (SPF). With SPF, the spray foam is laid down on the raw roof substrate first, forming a very thick, extremely strong and stable layer of insulation that will stick to almost anything, including concrete roofing, metal roofing, modified bitumen, built-up roof, smooth built-up roofing, polyurethane foam roofs, EPDM single-ply roofing. Following the application of the spray foam, a roof coating is then applied as a top coat over the SPF to seal the foam and protect it from the sun's harmful UV rays.
Here is an example of a warehouse roof that was destroyed by hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. After replacing the roof deck, spray foam was applied and then a roof coating was applied on top to make a complete energy efficient waterproof roofing system that is stronger than the original.
Once the roof coating and spray polyurethane foam system is complete, the new roof surface will be stronger without weighing too much (SPF is some lightweight stuff) and will offer some of the best R-values of any insulation product available for roofing.
Alternatives to Roof Coating
There are some cases where the roof has deteriorated to the point where is must be torn off and replaced and simply applying a roof coating will not be the best choice. For these situations, there are a few alternatives, the best of which is a bright white, cool roof single-ply roof system. These roofing systems are based on the same technology behind cool roof coatings and can offer many of the same benefits as a roof coating, saving energy dollars through reflectivity and admissibility.
Contact us if you have any specific questions about which roofing option is best for your situation - coatings, coatings and foam, or single-ply - and we will be happy to help you make the best decision for your situation and budget.
