Some Roof Coating Benefits
When applied correctly, roof coatings can fix leaks on almost any roofing type. Applying a reflective roof coating can also extend the lifespan of your roof’s substrate, keeping your roof’s surface cooler and providing an extra level of protection against the sun and other elements. Coatings can add up to 25 years to the lifespan of your roof!
However, we do not recommend applying coatings on shingle roofs. This can lead to problems with moisture and water damage. A coating can prevent your shingles from drying after rain or dew falls, which then causes moisture to condense and collect. All of this can lead to mold growth, which can cause you major headaches.
Coating asphalt shingles or built-up composition roofs requires more caution. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, roofing contractors must be careful when applying coatings on asphalt shingle roofs. Some of the risks may outweigh the benefits.

Roof Coating Installation Process
Before beginning with our inspection, we will have a consultation with you. During our inspection, we will examine your roof to make sure there are no other issues with it. This helps us take the correct measures.
When the inspection is completed, we will clean the roof and clear any debris that may be on it. When we apply the coating, it is important that the roof be clean and dry. The next step is to either roll or spray the coating onto your roof. Between each layer of coating, we allow the coating to dry completely, ensuring a perfect seal.
