Weatherproof Roofing - Roof Coating Systems Protect your Building from Water Penetration and Ponded Water

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, Dec 23, 2014 @ 12:00 PM


Roof leaks and moisture are the number one cause for concern when it comes to your roof. It does not matter the type of roof you have, when your roof begins to leak, you have to do something quickly to resolve the issue. Roof coating systems provide excellent waterproofing to your existing roof substrate (asphalt, single-ply, concrete, metal or SPF) without a traditional roof tear-off or closures to your business.

National Coatings roof coating systems provide a seamless, watertight, monolithic membrane across your entire roof surface, solving current leaks and preventing future leaks from occurring. These spray applied coating systems coat and cover the full roof surface providing complete waterproofing to your low-sloped roof even around pipes, penetrations, drains and equipment commonly found on the roof surface.

The AcryShield roof coating systems we install are very durable and flexible. The elastomeric base and topcoats used in these systems are able to stretch twice their original length and return to its original state without tearing or ripping. This is particularly important as weather climates fluctuate throughout the day; your roof expands and contracts to the hot and cold temperatures. This fluctuation can often cause leaks to roof membranes that are brittle or to roofs where the seams are not sufficiently adhered together. With an elastomeric, seamless membrane, your roof can easily expand and contract, protecting your building without ripping, tearing, and leaking. 

National Coatings has AcryShield roof coating systems and products that specialize in advanced ponded water protection. Ponded water, “water that remains on a roof surface longer than 48 hours after the termination of the most recent rain event” - defined by the National Roofing Contractors Association; can also cause major roof degradation and delamination, which eventually leads to water penetration. The AcryShield SPF Roofing System is custom tailored to your particular roof to provide a slope in necessary areas where ponded water occurs, eliminating drainage issues and ponded water from occurring again.
