REFLECTIVE - ROOF COATINGS



Energy efficiency, restoration, waterproofing, rustproofing, or any combinations of these reasons are why most business professionals decide to add a coating to their roof.

For energy efficiency, reflective roof coatings provide the best results. Reflective coatings reflect the sun's UV rays and infrared radiation, which reduces absorbed heat and prolongs the life of the roof system. Reflective roof coatings can significantly reduce summertime cooling costs, especially in flat roofs or low-sloped buildings with air condition that runs though the plenum.

Before and After - Roof Coating



Aluminum Coatings

Aluminum roof coatings are typically asphalt based products. Aluminum coatings are often used to add reflectivity to a built-up or modified bitumen roof surfaces, and to waterproof metal roofs. Aluminum roof coatings are ideal for treating rust and keeping it from spreading.

Aluminum Coatings

 
While the only color choice for this coating is aluminum, the aluminum appearance can give an unattractive rusted roof a more pleasing image. In addition, the aluminum naturally protects the asphalt in the coating from UV radiation and provides 50 to 65 percent reflectivity.

Acrylic Elastomeric Coatings - White Roof Coating

Reflective - White Roof Coating

While the reflectivity of aluminum is a plus, a white acrylic coating offers more reflectivity. With a white roof coating, the roof surface can reflect up to 80 to 90 percent of UV rays. An acrylic elastomeric coating is ideal for most roof substrates including concrete, built-up, modified bitumen, metal, foam, and single-ply roofs.

Urethane Coatings

Urethane roof coatings offer similar reflectivity to that of acrylic coatings. Urethanes are resistant to many rooftop chemicals and pollutant exposure and make sense for roofs that are exposed to harsh industrial conditions. Typically used on built-up, concrete, foam, and weathered single-ply roofs.
