For commercial flat and low-slope roofs that have a quality substrate applied, a coating system is often a good solution to extend the life of the roof. There is a dizzying variety of roof coating systems available, and the application process differs slightly for each type. Luckily, Community Roofing and Restoration is available to help you through the process of choosing the right roof coating for your needs, as well as provide expert application for your roof. We service all of Milwaukee and the surrounding areas with our vast knowledge of roof coating systems.
Some types of coatings are based on an asphalt emulsion, which allows for an easily application and reliable durability. These coatings are usually pushed with a broom to cover the entire roof. Acrylic coatings, typically sprayed on in two coats, allow for a thinner coating, but often need to be reapplied every 2-3 years for best results. Solvent-based asphalt coatings are solid at room temperature, and are “cut back” with solvent to a liquid state, then applied with a roller. The solvent then evaporates, leaving a solid, durable roof coating. Perhaps the best-performing type of coating system is solvent-based silicone coatings. This type is spray or roller applied and requires no primer, making the application process easier and quicker. Solvent-based silicone is resistant to pooling, which is a common source of damage for flat roofs. Silicone coatings are also available in a variety of colors.
