An Integral Part of Your Foam Roof
Every foam roof needs a roof coating in order for it to reach its maximum effectiveness. Adding coating to your seamless foam roof is a practical solution to control heat loss, protect the roof from harsh weather, and extend the lifetime of your roofing materials. There are many different types of roof coatings, and it’s essential that you use the proper products for your specific type of roof.
A roof coating can be defined as a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane. It also has elastic properties that allow it to stretch and return to its original shape without becoming damaged. It’s the topmost layer of protection for the roof membrane, receiving the impact of sunlight, rain, hail, and physical damage.
Types of Roof Coating
Because no one roof coating fits all types of roofing materials, it’s important that you identify which type of roof coating is appropriate for your roof. Here are four of the most common roof coatings we see.
Acrylic coatings are the most common type of roof coatings, and they’re available in solvent and water-based formulas. Acrylic coatings have good weathering properties and reflect away UV rays.
Silicon is a permanent alternate to acrylic coating that doesn’t degrade chalk or crack under harsh UV conditions. It is an especially good roof coating in Phoenix because of the high heat.
Asphalt coatings have good weather adaptability and are reflective and UV-stable. They come in both aluminized or black emulsions.
This type of coating has high abrasion resistance, making it a good choice in areas that have hail storms or that experience a lot of foot traffic on the roof.
Benefits of Roof Coating
Roof coatings have been shown to increase the useful life of the roof substrate because it keeps the roof surface cool, locks in granules and provides a layer of protection from the sun and inclement weather. Studies have shown in some applications roof coatings can add as much as 25 years to the service life of a roof.
Roof coatings also have an environmental benefit, because the increased life of roofing materials means that the amount of discarded roofing materials that end up in landfills is decreased. Finally, field studies have shown that cool roof coatings lower rooftop temperatures and reduce air conditioning bills, facts that are important to Arizona homeowners.
