SEAMLESS Roof Systems: Commercial Roof Coatings - Flat Roof Coatings – Low Sloped Roof Coatings

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, Aug 15, 2017 @ 09:10 AM

002.jpgThe terms commercial roof coatings, flat roof coatings and low-sloped roof coatings are interchangeable. They all simply describe a roof coating that is made specifically for a roofs surface with a slope of 2:12 inches or less. The opposite of this is a steep-sloped roof, which has a slope greater than 2:12 inches.

Now that we figured that out, lets discuss the primary advantage of selecting a roof coating for your roof. Roof coatings are popular because they create a monolithic or seamless membrane that is custom tailored to your roofs specific needs. They are spray applied over your existing roof and around all items that are specific to your roof (walls, pipes, HVAC equipment, skylights, etc…) without any seams or penetrations to the membrane, providing a truly seamless roof membrane.

Let me explain, as your roof ages, it becomes brittle and loses its capability to remain flexible. As the building expands and contracts with temperature fluctuations, the roof has a harder time keeping up with the movement causing a bulk of the tension to occur in areas where there are joints, seams and penetrations. The isolated tension and deterioration of the roof causes these areas to ripe and tear, leading to water penetrating into the building. Seamless membranes on the other hand are able to handle the additional stress from the temperature fluctuations because the tension is spread evenly across the entire roof field.

Dedicated Customer Service 

NCC is known for having a superior and dedicated customer service team. We are proud of this and continually make efforts to meet and exceed our customer's expectations. Check out some of the nice things they have to say about us: 

support.jpg"The collaboration for the project with National Coatings was very helpful along the way. The change to the quick set product was accomplished on the fly and was a seamless effort due to the intimate association during the life cycle of the project. It would not have been successful otherwise as the timing was at the end of the season" Anthony J. Berzinas, Facilities Project Manager at California Lottery Commission

The Ins & Outs of Cool Roof Terminalogy A FREE Guide to Cool Roof Jargon"National Coatings Corporation was helpful from start to finish. We chose them because their products reduce waste going to landfills, they are environmentally friendly with lower installation costs. The coatings are energy efficient and can be maintained indefinitely. We are very happy with the performance of our new National Coatings roof!" Luiz Lopez, Project Manager for Health Care and Hospital Facilities across California 

"I appreciate the effort that National Coatings put in to this [Reliant Stadium] project. National Coatings was very responsive to our needs in getting us the materials that we needed, when we needed them. Without the team effort from all players, this project could not have been completed on time.Larry Hubbard, Owner of Texas Commercial Finishes

"The Google Salado building was our 6th AcryPly roof restoration job for Google's Campus in Mountain View, CA. Google is very adamant about using sustainable building practices and environmentally responsible materials. They also want as little disruption to the people working in the building as possible. Since the system is fluid applied - there is little disruptive noise and the acrylic does not put out noxious fumes. National Coatings Sales & Marketing Manager has helped us to transition to an all-acrylic system which Google and our technicians like even better." Scott Siemer, President of Just Leaks, Inc.
