We offer a variety of options when it comes to roof coatings.
A building’s first line of protection against the weather is its roof. Roofs are resistant to a wide range of weather, including severe rain and gusting winds. This continuous exposure can wear down the roof over time and cause damage that could jeopardize the building’s structural integrity. However, our team at Yoder’s Roofing, LLC, can give your Columbus, Georgia roof new life by utilizing a roof coating.
Roof coatings add protective layers to roofing materials. These coatings are available in a variety of compositions, including silicone and acrylic. While each style has its own advantages, such as protection from the weather as mentioned above, they all aim to increase the roof’s lifespan. Some of the primary advantages of roof coatings include:
- Waterproofing: One of the biggest risks to a roof’s lifespan is water intrusion. However, roof coatings create a barrier that water can’t infiltrate, giving you peace of mind knowing that the contents inside the building and the structure itself are protected from water that might otherwise enter from the roof.
- Energy Efficiency and Reflectivity: Some roof coatings can reflect a sizable percentage of solar radiation. By lowering heat absorption, this reflecting quality aids in keeping the temperature on the roof surface lower. This results in reduced cooling costs and increases energy efficiency by limiting heat transfer into the structure.
- Adaptability and Growth/Reduction Tolerance: Because of their flexible formulation, roof coatings can expand and contract in response to temperature differences on the roof. This elasticity is essential for keeping the coating intact over time.
- Extended Lifespan: Possibly the biggest advantage is the roof’s longer lifespan. Roof coatings can extend the life of a roof by several years by serving as a protective barrier and addressing frequent weaknesses, thereby preventing the need for expensive replacements.
