PVC or polyvinyl chloride is a common roofing material because it is an inexpensive option that is exceptionally pliable and easy to install. Over time all roofing substrates age and deteriorate, PVC is no exception. When PVC ages it becomes brittle and shrinks, losing its ability to remain flexible causing tearing and rips along the seams, eventually leading to leaks.
Elastomeric roof coating systems are ideal for the restoration of PVC because they allow you to restore your aging roof to new without the need to complete a traditional roof tear-off. Roof tear-offs are expensive. They require business closures, lengthened installation time, disruptive installation to tenants, additional labor and material costs and extra unnecessary landfill waste – harmful to the environment. If you can avoid a roof-tear off, it will save you a great amount of time, money and hassle.
Installing a PVC roof restoration system using AcryShield elastomeric coatings allow you to keep your business open during installation, as these systems are spray applied and creating minimal noise disruption to the buildings occupants, eliminating any noise from nailing, drilling, or seam welding. Also, these roof coatings contain zero to ultra low VOCs, eradicating harsh chemicals and smells to the surround areas. Elastomeric roof coating systems are easily and quickly installed, allowing your business to remain open and productive while the installation is occurring – saving the business owner a substantial amount of money avoiding any loss in production time.
These PVC coating systems are extremely durable and have excellent adhesion to the PVC roofing substrate. The AcryShield elastomeric base coat provide outstanding waterproofing, adhesion, and resistance to ponded water. The top coat provide superior UV protection, reflectivity, longevity and brightness. These coatings are formulated to reflect a majority of the sun’s heat, absorbing only a small amount into the structure, which allows the air temperature inside the building to remain cooler with less energy consumption throughout the day. This directly impacts your energy utility bill, lowering costs while increasing tenant productivity and comfort.
There is no need to replace your aging PVC roof when you can restore it to new. National Coatings offers 10, 15 and 20 year warranties for restoring PVC roofing. If you would like additional information on our roof coating products and systems, download our FREE Product Brochure.
