Root coatings are a great way to replace and restore a flat roof. Langley Roofing Co Ltd offers a variety of roof coatings, sometimes referred to as spray applied roofing or spray on roofing because they consist of a fluid applied roofing membrane installed by using an airless sprayer or air assisted sprayer. The sprayer allows for a smooth, continual flow of coating to spread across the existing roof substrate evenly, which allows for a new, seamless, waterproof roof membrane.
One of the major advantages of the roof coatings is that they are seamless. Once applied, the coating bonds to the roof surface and to itself. This forms a complete roof membrane that water cannot penetrate. The adhesion and cohesion properties of spray applied coatings allow them to bond to the roof, even around difficult or awkward protrusions.
Second on the list of significant advantages of spray applied coatings is their reflective properties. Once they have cured, most coatings reflect the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere, which helps to keep both your roof’s surface and building’s interior cool.
Another advantage of roof coatings is ease of repair. If a crack or leak develops in the coating, once located it can be sealed with caulk and repaired in about 15 minutes. Bi-annual inspections will help you keep track of areas that are damaged or appear to be at risk. Once the problem is identified, repairing it is often simple and cost effective.
Disadvantages of Spray Applied Coatings
The installation process of spray roof coatings is tedious. While it appears simple and often fast, it requires precision that is absent with other roofing materials. This means you need to hire a quality roofing company that stays focused throughout the entire installation job.
