Roofing coatings have been around for many decades now. They are an excellent option for protecting and revitalizing the lifecycle of a roof system. With each season that passes, a roof takes a beating. Between the UV Rays, Hail, Wind, Snow and whatever else nature throws our way, we need to be diligent about this important asset. Coating can help with the long-term performance of a roof.
Why Consider Coatings
- Roof coatings often cost 1/3 of the cost of a roof replacement
- Choosing a coating can help keep roofing materials out of the landfills
- Coatings now have extended warranties, some up to 15 years
- The Future – Once a coating has been applied, a building owner can continue to re-coat the roof indefinitely
- Science has proven that white roofs keep buildings cooler, which reduces energy costs, therefor we offer white rooftop coatings
Will a roof coating work on my flat roof?
We offer a few different roof coating options. We’ll be able to recommend an option that provides a combination of sealant, flexibility and reflectivity to give you a solid seal on your existing roof. It can be applied over almost any existing roofing surface, and it comes with a solid warranty.
There are certain circumstances in which a roof coating isn’t the best choice. Our experienced estimators can perform an inspection to help determine the best route.
What steps are involved in roof coatings?
The coating process starts with a power wash to clear the roof of dirt and debris. Second, the team will examine your roof, patching and sealing any cracks. All penetrations such as plumbing, HVAC and exhaust ports are examined and pre-sealed. After the foreman thoroughly inspects the pre-work, the coating is applied to the rooftop by our experienced and professional crews.
Why read the warranty?
Once the crews finish cleaning and leave your property, all that’s left is the roof system and the warranty. You want to be sure that you understand the warranty. Each manufacturer has different warranty options available.
When you are ready to coat your roof, examine the warranty. A 10-year materials warranty is not enough. Under such a plan, should your roof fail, the company will ship you buckets of coating material, but you are on your own to inspect, repair and recoat your rooftop.
Our industry leading options provide a 10-year materials and laborwarranty, assuring that if something goes wrong, you have a professional team ready to respond. With Damschroder Roofing’s experience, not only installing rooftop coatings, but also documenting and facilitating warranty and insurance claims, you have a team on your side.
