White Roof Coatings Protect Your Roof from the Sun's Damaging UV Rays!

white roof coatings

While there are several reasons why a roof can start leaking, many people do not realize that the UV rays from the sun are the most damaging to your roofs surface. Dark roofs absorb a great amount of the sun’s heat, aka UV rays, causing the roof to become a brittle, less elastic substrate. When your roof becomes brittle, the membrane may lose thickness and become less defensive against leaks. A similar situation occurs when the roof loses the capability to expand and contract with fluctuating temperatures - cracks occur and seams split, leading to roof failure and more leaks. It is important to use one of the AcryShield white roof coatings to protect your roof against these common side effects from the sun.

AcryShield coatings are packed with high performance UV blocking pigments prohibiting the sun’s heat to be absorbed by the roofs surface. This keeps the surface temperature of the original roof cooler, allowing no further damage or premature roof failure to occur. The roof remains flexible and strong; protecting the assets inside the building from water damage caused by leaks. The minimal heat absorption also allows the interior of the building to remain cooler, cutting energy consumption costs and usage to cool the building. 

White roof coatings not only protect your roof from failures and leaks caused by the sun, they also can extend the life span of the roof indefinitely. Using one of National Coatings AcryShield Roof Maintenance Systems, you can recoat your existing roof every ten or so years, adding additional layers of protection and waterproofing, while eliminating the need for a costly roof tear-off. Building codes typically prohibit you from adding more than two roofs to your building without tearing the roof off and starting new. White roof coatings are usually not considered an additional roof; therefore, eliminating a roof tear-off.

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.
