Roof Coating

Even though the roofs rust problem would have to be solved first, adding a Roof Coating to a metal roof would improve its looks greatly.

Roof coating is a way to extend the life of a roof. There are many different types of coatings available including reflective coatings. The coatings are comprised of acrylics, silicones, urethanes, and other types of materials. Almost any type of roof can be coated including: single-ply, metal, built-up-roof systems, and modified bitumen roofs.

Roof Coating provides 3 main benefits: increase in the life of the roof,  reduction in energy usage  and aesthetic improvements. Let’s take a look at each.

Increase in the life of the roof

Roof coating works in two ways to extend the life of a roof. The first is by providing a defense against Ultraviolet (UV) rays. Just like your skin, your roof needs this protection because UV rays damage the membranes in the roof causing it to age more rapidly. Secondly, the coating works to help mitigate leaks. Keep in mind extensive leaks cannot be repaired through coating and are not a long-term solution for a leaking roof. Coatings work to help extend the life of a roof up to 10 years or in some cases more. The roof can be coated again the in the future. Coatings help to make a roof more durable. During extreme bouts of weather including: heat, rain, snow, sleet, and hail; the dwelling owner wants to ensure their dwelling is not compromised due to the weather. A good coating will help reduce damaged caused by weather conditions. Take into consideration if during the raining season a puddle sat on the roof for an extended period of time; an effective coating should not be affected.

Reduction of energy usage

Coatings work to help protect against UV Rays by the way of reelection. Without this protection the heat would get trapped inside the dwelling. When the dwelling is hotter typically it takes longer to cool resulting in higher energy usage. Total energy savings will depend on where the dwelling is located. It is highly suggested that when planning to coat a roof that the dwelling owner meet with an energy consultant.

Aesthetic Improvements

Old rusted roofs can be made to look almost brand new again. Even though the roofs rust problem would have to be solved first, adding a coating to a metal roof would improve its looks greatly. Replacing a roof can be far more costly than applying coating to a roof. Coatings come in an array of colors from reflective white to earth tones that can complement the surroundings. There is also the option for brighter tones to let the dwelling standout. A good coating also has the ability to resist dirt. Of course no coating will resist all debris however, to keep its energy efficiency a good roof will have a great deal of dirt pickup resistance.

A few things to consider when choosing a roof coating include durability, temperature flexibility, the resistance to pick up dirt, adhesion, and resistance to water. With good research a home owner should be able to find a coating that works well for the type of roof they have.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
