The roofing systems contain polyester fabric that is embedded into the base coat, across the entire roof field. This provides the existing roof with an extremely durable, reinforcing layer. The AcryShield base coats used in these restoration systems provide waterproofing, superior adhesion, resistance to ponded water, bleed-through protection and resistance to plasticizer migration. The AcryShield top coats provide industry leading UV protection, longevity and brightness. They are formulated for superior dirt pick-up resistance and protection against biological attack, such as algae and mold.

    • Roof restoration systems avoid costly roof replacement. This means shorter installation phases, no landfill fee's, and businesses can remain open, conducting business as usual since theses systems are non-disruptive (spray applied, no drilling, nailing, seam-welding, or harsh odors).
    • These systems reduce roof maintenance, with superior UV protection, the roof coatings protect your rooftop from the harsh and damaging UV rays from the sun. Most people do not realize, but the sun is your rooftops worse enemy, causing the most degradation and damage. Therefore, it is vital to have an excellent UV protectant!

    • The ability to protect the roof from the sun, also allows you to save on your energy consumption. Energy cooling consumption is drastically reduced in the building as the top coats provide a "Cool Roof" substrate, reflecting the majority of the sun's heat away from the building, keeping the indoor ambient temperature cooler without using an air-conditioning unit. Many customers are pretty impressed with the results. "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

Flat Roof Repair – Options for Solving Your Roofing Issues

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Aug 21, 2014 @ 09:00 AM

singleply_beforeWhen it comes to low slope or flat roof repair there are several options you can choose from ranging from patchwork to total roof replacement.  Roof coatings systems fall somewhere in the middle of those two spectrums for both cost and time but provide you with a fully restored, brand new, leak-free roof substrate that extends the lifespan of your roof while lowering roof maintenance costs.

Patchwork is an option that can provide a temporary solution to your leaking roof while you figure out what your long term plan is going to be. Although patchwork is a do-it-yourself method, it is recommended that you do your research and call different roofing contractors or manufacturers to learn about the long-term consequences of using different materials to patch your leaking areas. Several materials such as aluminum roof coating and silicone roof coating can be difficult to coat over in the future. This can prohibit a cost-effective roof coating system from being installed and potentially force you to do a costly and timely roof replacement instead.

singleply_afterRoof replacement is ideal when you have exhausted all other roofing options. Often times, you can avoid a roof replacement by installing a roof restoration system directly on top of your failing or leaking roof. For obvious reasons such as lengthy tear-off and installation phases, costly roof replacement stages, business closures and landfill waste and fee’s, roof replacement should be a last resort option. Always contact a roof coating professional to get a second opinion to determine if your roof can be restored – more than often, it can be!

Roof restoration systems are 50-70% cheaper than a roof replacement and provide a durable and superior option for flat roof repair. These systems allow your business to function as normal with minimal disruption during installation, they can be applied over roofs with one or two previous roofs installed – building codes prohibit the installation of a third roof to be installed on a building due to weight-bearing limitations; however, a roof coating system does not apply to this code and can allow you to restore your existing roof without a tear-off.  Roof restoration systems are spray applied providing a seamless, monolithic substrate that fully coats and covers your specific roof with all of its unique curves, pipes, equipment and other characteristics.

Additional benefits of roof restoration include:

  • Sustainable
  • Energy Savings
  • Fully Adhered
  • Reduced Roof Maintenance
  • Protection Against Harmful UV Rays
  • Greater Employee Comfort & Productivity
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Seamless Waterproofing
  • Renewable
  • 10-15-20 Year Warranty Options Available
