Roof coatings are typically used for roof renovation and increasing energy efficiency. They are therefore beneficial to the entire building in general.
The most common types of roof coatings include silicone, acrylic, foam and thermoplastic and they all have benefits and are suitable for different types of roofs. Choosing a type of coating for your roof must depend on the current roof materials as well as your goal.
But why opting for a coating instead of a roof replacement? It is more efficient in terms of protection? Is it more efficient in terms of costs?
First of all, a roof replacement is a very expensive project that typically involves removing the old roof before reinstalling the new one, and sometimes even reinforcing the resistance structure, to be able to bear heavier roofing materials. On the other hand, if you opt for roof coating, you will not have to worry about these aspects. A coating is a layer applied on the existing roof, creating a seamless surface, preventing water infiltrations and making the roof more energy efficient. The costs are very affordable and you will increase the lifespan of your roof, which means that you can wait for another 8-10 years before worrying about replacing your roof. Finally yet importantly, a coating also improves the aspect of the roof.
