To avoid the trouble of having to constantly repair your roof, it is important that your roof is given regular maintenance. One of the most cost-effective and efficient options is roof coating, which helps to prevent leakages. With the appropriate coatings, the longevity of your roof will be prolonged, thus rendering it more effective in protecting your homes and businesses. If you are thinking of engaging a company to conduct professional roof coating services for you, why not consider Honey-Do-Men, who has been in business over the past four decades without having a single complaint lodged against us with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)?
What are Roof Coating Services?
Roof coating services are provided by roofing companies to maintain or restore the waterproofing capabilities of your roof. There are three types of roof coatings customers can choose from – acrylic, elastomeric, and silicone, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
Acrylic roof coatings are a good choice for those living in drier places where the average temperature is above 50°F. Being highly reflective, malleable, and UV-resistant, they are a very popular choice. However, they tend to lose their thickness when exposed to intense sunlight.
Elastomeric roof coatings, being highly resistant, are able to withstand a wide range of weather conditions, and they are considerably cheaper than both acrylic and silicone roof coatings. However, as elastomeric is not as UV-resistant, it is to be used as a base coat. Additionally, they also have a strong odor which might be unpleasant to some. To enhance their durability, it is advised to combine elastomeric with another coating.
As silicone roof coatings are moisture-cured, they are able to weather the elements better than acrylic or elastomeric. They are widely recommended for buildings located in locations which rain is frequent. One disadvantage though, is that they collect dirt and dust easily.
Benefits of Hiring Professional Roof Coating Services
Roofing is a very dangerous activity. There are numerous reports every year about individuals falling from roofs while conducting maintenance. As such, you should always, in the interest of safety, leave any roofing activities to the professionals. Experience is another significant factor. You might have watched YouTube videos teaching you where to procure the coating materials and conduct the coating process yourself. However, the short amount of time spent on doing so is not comparable to the years and decades of experience on the part of roofing professionals.
When do You need Roof Coating Services?
If water is leaking through your roof in multiple locations within your property, then it is time to pick up your phone and get on the line with a professional roofing company now. Also, the shape of your roof is another important consideration. If it is flat, you should absolutely get it coated. Flat roofs can accumulate water in the event of a heavy, prolonged rainstorm. With nowhere to go, the water can easily seep through the slightest crack in the roof and into your property.
