One of the major contributors to a high-performing roof system is the roof coatings product that serves as the top-most protective layer of the roof. Roof coatings often receive the full impact of natural elements like rain, sunlight, hail, among others. The constant exposure to the harsh elements require that roof coatings are applied on the roof in the most appropriate manner in order to achieve the best results and quality from the roofing system.
Roof coatings application commonly begins with industrial coating contractors thoroughly examining the roof for cracks or tears, and, if any defects exist, these are fixed and sealed to eliminate any source of roof leaks. The roof is then subjected to cleansing, wherein any dirt or dust is removed through pressure washing. These roof surface preparations aim to improve the roof quality in readiness for coatings application.
Primers are subsequently applied on the roof surface to improve adhesion. Top coatings using the appropriate elastomeric coating formulation are then applied in 2 or 3 layers, made at appropriate time intervals to ensure complete drying between each coat.
The careful preparation, cleaning and application of the roof coatings ensures that the roof performs durably and with high-quality. Only the roof coatings contractor with certifiable skills and equipments can deliver this quality to roofing maintenance projects consistently and effectively.
