These coatings can be applied when a roof is installed, or from time to time during the lifespan of the roof.  Roof installations are costly, and ensuring a system lasts as long as possible is essential. At LOA Construction, we are experts at roof coatings, and offer same day inspections and estimates to customers throughout Austin, San Antonio, and Houston.

Types of roof coatings

Roof coating is a general term; there are several types of coatings, and the right coating for a structure must be determined by inspecting the roof, which our team at LOA Construction can do the same day you contact our firm.

Acrylic roof coatings:

For a reflective roof covering, typically in white, tan, or gray, these coatings are often appropriate.

Asphalt roof coating:

An asphalt roof can be strengthened or made more UV resistant with aluminized asphalt coatings, or when a black asphalt roofing system is older, strengthened with standard black asphalt coating.

Polyurethane coating:

For hail resistance, polyurethane coating can be applied to an existing roof, or when installing a new roof.

Silicone coating:

Flat roofing systems that are prone to pooling during rainstorms can be applied, to create a better water barrier and create a reflective surface for energy savings.

Resins and other roof coatings:

Many other types of roof coatings are available and may be selected for specific roofing systems. 

Cold-applied roof coatings:

These coatings are applied without the need to heat the product.

What type of roof coating is best?

The type of coating that is best for your building will be the coating that will work best with your roofing system. With the assistance of our LOA team, we can advise you of the ideal coating material for your commercial facility. These coatings are very effective in keeping a roofing system more impermeable to heavy rain, as roofing materials, over time, can degrade, and develop slow leaks. 

What types of roofing systems can be coated?

Most types of roofing systems can be coated, whether metal, mod-bit, built-up roofing, or spray polyurethane. 

Roof lifespan and coatings

The roofing system on a building has a lifespan, which can be extended with roof coating. The coating acts as the first layer of protection against UV rays and water and helps to reduce damaging expansion and contraction of the roof surface.

How often should roof coating be applied?

Roof coating on a flat roof should be applied about every five years to enhance roof performance and extend lifespan. If a flat roof typically develops pools of water after a rainstorm, ensure you have the roof coated regularly to avoid the development of slow leaks. A yearly roof inspection will allow any minor repairs to be performed before the problem worsens.
