Commercial Roof Coatings
Adding a roof coating to your property may provide one of the best opportunities to reduce energy loss. A roof coating, which is common on a commercial property, adds a layer of protection to the existing roof. They can be used on many types of structures. The material itself is thicker than paint but are formulated for specific goals and needs. At McAllen Valley Roofing Co., our team is happy to talk to you about the benefits of roof coatings on your property.
The use of roof coatings can help to provide a layer of protection on the roof.
Our cool roof coatings, for example, help to reflect the sun’s solar heat from the surface.
That means your air conditioner operates less frequently.
They are very cost-effective. You can add them over the top of an existing roof system without having to tear off the existing roof.
That saves time and money. Often, they can be applied right away, providing a fast solution to protecting your roof.
At McAllen Valley Roofing Co, we specialize in installing CertainTeed residential roofing shingles, one of the most reliable brands in high-performance, energy-efficient shingles.
Acrylic Elastomeric Coatings
Acrylic roof coatings are some of the most commonly used because they can reduce cooling costs highly effectively.
They dramatically decrease building temperatures, prolong the life of your roof, and help to reflect as much as 88 percent of solar light.
This type of roof coating is a water-based, elastomeric acrylic roof coating that contains a high volume of solids.
It has a low VOC and is non-flammable, but just a single application can provide exceptional roof coating protection with good adhesion.
This material virtually eliminates the need for ongoing roof replacement cost. We strongly recommend THERMOTEK PLATINUM PLUS for its highly effective formulation.
Silicone Roof Coatings
Silicone roof coatings are water and weather-resistant roof coatings. The very best of them are a solvent-free, elastomeric waterproof silicone coating.
It should contain high solids content to create a long-lasting level of protection.
Silicone roof coating is a roof sealant that not only offers energy efficiency improvements and is UV resistant, but it is an excellent option for water resistance, creating the waterproof coating you need if you have roof leaks.
For those battling roof restoration needs, silicone roof coatings like this protect against ponding. We recommend THERMOTEK X99 Silicone as one of the best solutions for ultimate roof protection.
If you’re looking for a roof coating for mobile home applications or other flat roofs, these materials work well. These materials are not water-based, which means they never absorb water. They also do not chalk off as other types of flat roof coatings to.
Silicone flat roof coatings work well to improve the aesthetics of the building. They also can increase the roof’s lifespan significantly depending on its existing condition.
With applications needed only every 10 to 15 years, silicone roofing materials like this can be an easy investment for most homes.
