Is my roof an ideal candidate for a roof restoration system?

Posted by Nicole Gale on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 @ 11:10 AM

The answer is: more than likely. Many building owners and maintenance managers are taught to believe that when their roof is of a certain age and has several issues, they need to replace the roof entirely. This is not always the case. Roof restoration systems, such as the AcryPly System, can solve many issues with your current roof while restoring it to a new, fully reinforced, seamless, watertight roof membrane that can be renewed every ten to fifteen years – allowing you to avoid a roof tear-off indefinitely.  

The most important things a roof inspector looks for when inspecting a roof to see if it qualifies as an ideal roof restoration project are the following:

    • How well is the current substrate weathering?
    • Identify any damage caused by third parties(HVAC,Termite,Etc)
    • How old is the substrate?
    • Is the roof too brittle or worn to coat?

National Coatings AcryPly Roof Restoration Systems can effectively restore a leaking, aged substrate that has some mechanical damage and brittleness. Asphalt and Single-Ply substrates are generally restorable up to 15 years of age, with Metal and Polyurethane Foam substrates even longer. The AcryPly Systemprovides a permanent solution and is custom tailored to fit your buildings specific needs.

Your roof may suffer from the four questions above, but that does not necessarily eliminate roof restoration as an option for you. It's always a great idea to contact a roof coating professional to discuss restoration options before being told a tear-off is your only choice. You can schedule a FREE roof inspection with one of National Coatings technical representatives to find out if your roof can be restored.

We always recommend you practice good maintenance and care for your roof at least twice a year/every six months for any low-slope roof. The fall and the spring are usually the best times for these inspections. That way you are able to make any corrections before and after storm seasons. The roof is an item on a building that is easily ignored until leaks occur and issues arise. Don’t wait for something bad to happen and be forced to respond - be proactive. Roof restoration is an inexpensive solution to fully restoring and reinforcing your existing roof.

Top 3 Reasons Commercial Roofing Contractors like AcryShield Coatings

Posted by Nicole Gale on Wed, Feb 27, 2013 @ 12:00 PM

Performance, benefits and National Coatings’ helpful hand are just a few reasons commercial roofing contractors choose AcryShield Roof Coatings over the rest. 

Commercial Roofing Contractors

  1. Ease of Application and Quick Installation 

    AcryShield coatings create seamless, monolithic roofing membrane which are applied directly over the existing roof. Requiring no drilling, nailing or seam welding, AcryShield coatings save time and allow the building occupants to continue working during normal business hours. AcryShield coatings are spray-applied coatings allowing commercial roofing contractors to tailor the roofing membrane to meet the specific needs of the customers' roofing substrate. Roofing contractor and Owner of Inland Pacific Roofing, John Eminhizer says, "I was impressed with the ease of application of the National Coatings ARM EPDM Roof Management System."


    The AcryShield coating line leads the way for innovative products. National Coatings strives to make user-friendly products for commercial roofing contractors while creating high performance coatings that surpass building owner's expectations. AcryShield A590 is an ULTRA high reflective coating with superior UV protection, which has the additional benefit of being applied in a single pass. Using AcryShield A590 on a roof eliminates the traditional 2nd and 3rd passes an average coated roof requires. This saves commercial roofing contractors a lot of time and money. Gina Salvucci, an employee at the F&A Federal Credit Union, loves the reflectivity features of AcryShield coatings - "I love how cool the white keeps things on the inside of the building as well as how clean and white it looks from the top." Another superior coating that roofing contractors find very useful is our AcryShield A502 coating. This base coat can be directly applied over hard to coat Single-Ply membranes - TPO, EPDM, and Hypalon, without the need for any additional primers or etching rinses. This eliminates the additional priming step, as well as, the need for catching these caustic primers so they don't run down the building and into the city streets and gutters.
     
  2. Excellent Customer Service

    National Coatings is known for having superior products and always having a dedicated customer service staff. For this reason, we did not want to do the bragging ourselves.


    "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


    "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.
