Roof Coatings - A Roofing Material that Saves You Money

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, May 06, 2014 @ 11:00 AM

Roofing Material Elastomeric roof coatings are excellent at sustaining and restoring existing aged or leaking roof membrane. All roofing materials require proper application and maintenance to perform to their fullest – roof coatings are no different. When applied and maintained properly, elastomeric roof coatings offer cost savings benefits by prolonging your roofs’ life and reducing energy costs and usage. 

Prolonged Roof Life

Elastomeric roof coatings are ideal for restoring and maintaining Asphalt roofing (BUR and Mod Bit), Single-Ply roofing (TPO, EPDM, PVC and Hypalon), Spray Foam roofing (SPF), Metal roofing and Concrete roofing.  The coating systems allow the roof to be renewed and restored – achieving a watertight, fully seamless, brand new roof membrane. AcryShield roof coating systems are the leading coating systems in the industry allowing you to restore your roof indefinitely. When proper roof maintenance is performed, a fully restored roof coating system can be re-coated every 10-15 years, allowing you to avoid a costly roof tear-off forever.

Reduced Energy Usage and Costs

Roof coatings with high Ultra-Violet (UV) blocking pigments are the best choice for a roofing material that needs to provide you with durability and protection from the sun’s harmful and damaging UV rays and heat.  Roof coatings containing large amounts of these UV blocking pigments allow the sun’s heat to be reflected back into the atmosphere (a process otherwise known as solar reflectance) without the building absorbing much of the heat (a process otherwise known as thermal emittance). This keeps the temperatures inside the building down. The greater ability to reflect the sun’s radiation, the cooler the building remains, and the less air conditioning is needed to create a comfortable temperature for the occupants inside. The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC), an organization that accurately and credibly evaluates solar reflectance and thermal emittance of roofing materials, has rated our AcryShield roofing products highly - check the ratings out! The AcryShield roof coating line has be proven to lower energy consumption and save on air conditioning costs. 

After the National Coatings' Cool Roof was installed we definitely noticed a difference in building temperature. It's not a marginal difference, either. It is between 15-20 degrees cooler inside the warehouse and store." Jerry Moore, Facilities Director at Harbor Freight Tools
