Elastomeric coatings are flexible, elastic coatings that can be applied to roofs or other structural surfaces with airless spray systems, brushes, or rollers. These sorts of coatings are often used to provide protection to surfaces, since they may be bestowed with insulating properties, thermal transfer reduction qualities, or soundproofing.

Since these coatings have so much “give”, they offer a long-lasting way to coat and protect many materials; for this reason, they also add significant value to commercial and residential buildings and other industrial structures. By reducing heat build-up on rooftops, elastomeric coatings can also save on energy costs associated with air conditioning or temperature regulation.

A skilled application expert must decide which type and thickness of elastomeric coating should be used for a specific project. Since the substance itself will stretch, it is a superior adhesive shield that can be placed on top of wood, tar, and an extensive array of other industrial substances. Premium waterproofing is another key benefit of choosing an elastomeric coating. However, this high-tech coating system must be applied properly to work as it should – in the hands of amateurs, elastomeric coatings may not have the desired efficacy. To get the right return on an investment in elastomeric coating, be sure to have it applied by a skilled specialist with years of experience in his or her field.

Elastomeric coating is a powerful sealant

If a structure has many cracks or flaws, elastomeric coatings can be used to smooth out the appearance of the surface and to provide protection from further damage. The sealing power of this modern coating system is an excellent maintenance system for concrete, masonry, and stucco.
